When I start a new fresh project I get it to work just fine. I must have an issue with the file and model, repair project didn’t work either. No worries, not a big deal for this project, mostly just eye candy for the cross sections. Thanks.

Not sure I understand your issue. I hope I’m not stating the obvious, and if you move the roof edge and adjust the support height it would leave the ridge right where it is, but the roof will be low at the edge of the deck. If you move the roof edge and maintain the support height, then the ridge will move forward to keep the same pitch on the front and back.
Support had me unistall and then reinstall from the Dropbox download and it seems to have worked. They also mentioned I might need to update my video card drivers, but they were alreday working just fine. Thanks.
Bear the roof from a “second level” building location. That way the walls can extend to the roof and close in the gable ends, etc.. The trick that was posted previously is to make the second level walls only 1/8″ so they are there but don’t really show. You can still add windows and doors to the wall. You might want to turn off (delete) the baseboard trim since it will show to be taller than the wall itself in your sections. This should help the issue of walls and roofs on different locations.
The raked ceiling shouldn’t be too hard. Ceilings are created similar to roofs. Think of it like a “roof under a roof”. Insert a ceiling by any one of the methods and then modify it in the properties and in the “Type” box change it to a Cathedral. The cathedral ceiling comes with various options to change the slope and so forth. To get the triangle look on the one end of the cathedral change the “Edge Shape” to Gable. Hope this helps.
We added grab bars to a project a few months ago. I will see where we got them from and try and figure out how to get them to you. I am guessing he got them from Sketchup and then imported them in and added them to our catalog.
