Hi there,

A gable wall is the way to create a triangle shaped wall. You can see the options in the image attached.
Why you can't select the wall / shape in the second floor? Try to detail the problem as specifically as possible, so we can understand the issue. Let us know exactly what you want to do, what you tried, what seems broken, etc.
Remember that you can select the walls only in the active floor.

In my eBook, you can see the shapes and how you can create them in the "Exterior / Interior Walls – Shapes" section (page 46) and how to create special walls including Custom Gable walls in the "Custom Shaped Walls" section (page 55).

I didn't try a gabled wall. I tried a gable roof.

I just want to do a simple portico. Something like

this column-less portico.

Hi there,

Gable walls are used with gable roofs, so you can create this element using a gable roof + a gable wall.
However, as you wish to include woodwork, I'd suggest that you create this porch with brackets using the 3D Custom Workshop Power Tool.
I am attaching 2 POBs (Punch objects) that you can import (File => Import => Punch Custom Workshop Object) or you can open and modify with the 3D Custom Workshop Power Tool.
The new version (V18) includes additional objects.
Hope this helps.

Thanks. I appreciate it. I'll give it a try.

I've been thinking about upgrading to V18. I was wondering if it had these objects I still need but don't see in V17 (exterior shutters, exterior window and door header treatments, glass panel railings for decks).

Hi there,

You're welcome! :-)

You wrote "I've been thinking about upgrading to V18. I was wondering if it had these objects I still need but don't see in V17 (exterior shutters, exterior window and door header treatments, glass panel railings for decks)." =>
1 - Porch with brackets => yes, there is an additional POB in the v18 version
2 - Exterior Shutters => there are different types of shutters in your current program as well as in the V18 programs (Accessories tool) (see attached).
3 - Exterior Window and Door Header Treatments: there is one POB but there are additional resources (Window Designer PT and Door Designer PT), depending of the version.
4 - Glass Panel Railings: there is a POB.
Of course, for the items 3 and 4 you can create these objects using the 3D Custom Workshop Power Tool.
Note that some resources are not available in the Premium Version (as the Window Designer PT and the Door Designer PT)
This the following chart for more info:
