That’s the opposite of what happens if paths are incorrect.
Did both installations use the default Cadsoft settings?
Or do you use a Custom install, maybe putting all your custom images etc on a separate drive?
12 years ago I told the Oz Revit distributor that I’m too old to learn new software. I’m still convinced of that fact.
In what areas did you see CA as superior?
Can’t stop drooling!
The tapered section would have to use a roof or surfaces methinks
I’d suggest roof & OSB are coplanar. The OSB has to be lower than the roof surface just as in reality. Did you include the OSB thickness + metal roof thickness in the overall roof thickness? (as well as the supporting structure thickness eg rafters/trusses)
i just do whatever works and sometimes it’s kinda dumb.
But that’s too logical to be “kinda dumb”
Whenever I come across an “undocumented feature” I first test if it can be duplicated in a new bld.
If it can, then try on another machine . . .
Still there? Try to duplicate in an earlier version, using a copy of a bld created in that version then a new bld.
What would be the risk of flying debris up there? Once the building envelope is punctured, high wind can do so much more damage.
For an attic I’d pitch the roof from the main level. That can make placing dormers & supporting walls a little more challenging though.
I’d be interested to hear how other designers get around it.
I fail to see how being able to specify a negative end slope for a curved roof segment would help your situation.
If end slope > start slope, curve will be convex
If end slope < start slope, the curve will be concave (eg barrel vault)
That never used to be a problem. More than a decade ago I designed a home and hanger in an aviation village in the Whitsundays. Both had wave-shaped roofs. All 4 arched segments ended with slope=0. This meant the user had to actually calculate the RL at which the “lip” of the wave pitched.
I asked that Cadsoft remove the limitation of not being able to enter a NEGATIVE slope at the end of a curved roof but it seems I’ll be waiting a while yet!
Note also that v15 wouldn’t even let me proceed to the dialogue where the user has to specify start slope & end slope. I’ve been too busy to follow up on this

It might just need a good cleanout.
Reinstall Windows (after having imaged the drive just in case & separately backed up all your data & settings) then reinstall Envisioneer. You might be pleasantly surprised! I used to do that religiously every year until Win 7 . . .
Looks like 2 floors at the same level. Concrete & carpet? Select the carpet & elevate it the thickness of the pile.
Refer to your other thread on how to select one or the other It’s description will display at the bottom of your drawing area.
