Inserting Dormer Windows

If you have created a design which includes Pitched Roofs, you can add dormers to them. It is only possible to employ dormers in association with roof pitches.

3.Now click on Dormer.
4.Now click on the Pitched Roof and set the point from which the lower edge of the Dormer is to be drawn. Now use the mouse cursor to set the direction and length of the lower edge. Alternatively, you can enter the desired length as a figure in the relevant field.
