I am cutting a dormer in a roof with a square rafter cut. I want the dormer to be plumb cut. Is there any way to do this? The property seems to be set for the entire roof.
You should be able to by creating the plumb cut dormer roof first, join it to the main roof, create the walls of the dormer, then cut the hole in the main roof for the dormer.

I went through the process again with the video, but continue to have an issue. I have attached the revit file. Dormer 'b' looks right on the outside, but has the squarecut opening on the inside. Dormer 'a' looks correct on the inside, but the walls above the roof won't join at the corner. I have approached this every way I can think of and can't make it work. I am relatively new to Revit, so maybe I am missing something obvious.
I was able to fix the issue by moving the dormer opening lines to the exterior face of the cheek walls. Once moved, the walls joined at the corners.
