Chief Architect Premier or Chief Architect Lite


I deleted the roof in my plan but still see the roof framing.  Why is it still there and how do I delete the roof framing as well?


In order to build roof framing in Chief Architect, it's necessary to first build a roof.  However, once the framing is created it is independent of the roof planes, allowing you to delete either one without affecting the other.  

To delete a roof and roof framing

  1. Select Edit> Delete Objects  from the menu.   

  2. In the Delete Objects dialog:   

    • Click the radio button beside All Floors.  

    • Check the box beside Roof Planes.  

    • Keep in mind that if you click the OK button now, the roof planes in the drawing will be deleted, but the roof framing will not.   

    • Check boxes beside Roof Framing, Roof Baseline Polylines, and Roof Trusses.

    • Click the Delete button to delete both the roof and roof framing in your plan then click Done.
