Hi, lot of difficulties to try to fix a roof on Archicad 24, I had 2 slopes of a roof, one higher and one lower and a wall, so used to trim the wall with the command "Trim Elements to Roof/Shell" including all the 3 elements, after this, the lower slope of one roof depend directly from the higher roof and when I modify the higher one the lower automatically change as the higher one, and plus, it came an ugly strange wall as I change the distance of the edge of the roof !
How can I bring independent back the lower roof from the higher and more of all how can I delete the wall from my view ??
1 pic added, take a look.
Thanks in advance

By higher roof you are talking about the roof on the left and lower being the roof on the right? And the wall is a continuous wall that runs under both roofs?

Select the lower roof and you should see a small icon with a four connected squares in it which you can click on an see a list of all connections. From this list you can remove the desired connection.

Regarding that wall, split it in two.
