I have some similar issues. When I add a gable along an edge and it has a different slope then I cannot get roof edge under upper overhang to join to wall.
Also, is there a direct way to do a shed dormer and have it meet main roof cleanly at ridge and 2nd floor top plate?
Thank you,
John

Here is a solution to your three gable.
Split center low gable sketch lines at midpoint and add a slope arrow from midpoint to right set to "Specify" = "Slope" and Rise/12" = 12". If center reference plane is where you want ridge, use that point to split sketch lines instead. Turn off un-needed slope defining check boxes and drag sketch lines to eliminate excess roof .
Use Join Geometry to join roofs.
Hope that helps.

Also, right lower gable only needs one slope defining line and only need to go to ridge line. You will need to attach wall to upper roof as well existing attachment to lower roof.
