Chief Architect Premier


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.

    • Under the Objects category, check the boxes beside Roof Planes and Roof Baseline Polylines.

    • Under the Framing category, check the boxes beside Roof Trusses and Roof Framing.

  3. Click the Delete button to delete the selected objects and return to the plan.
