    Attaching gable walls to roof

    May I ask how to attach gable walls to a roof?
    The walls were originally created in a unattached mode.
    The roof, in this case a mansard, so the gable is somethingof a irregular triangle shape.
    If I create a level for apex of triangular roof and attachwall to foresaid, the wall projects above roof.
    I tend to think in terms of Boolean, oldfashioned unfortunately, but clearly that isnot how it’s done.
    So how is it done?

    All you need to do is to select the Wall and then click on the "Attach Top/Base" tool that appears at the right end of the Ribbon.
    Then you pick the Roof you want to Attach it to.
    If your Wall crosses both parts of the Mansard, you might need to Attach the Wall twice - once to each slope.
