I once saw help for this issue in an Autodesk tutorial. Now I can't find it... 

I'm Using 2011.

On the front of a house, I have staggered walls, with rooflines following. I am wanting to continue the walls that are in the rear to the u/s of the roof. I cannot  attach the walls to the roof, as the walls really do not pass under this roof section. 

I'm sure that there is a simple solution that I've forgotten.

Please direct me to the tutorial, or lend help! (Videos are best for me!)

Thanks,

Susan

P.S. I'm attaching a picture, as I'm sure that I've not described this very well.

If the "attach top/base" option isn't working, could you not just click on the wall and then "edit profile"?

No. The wall is a stacked wall. 

I've tried editing the profile, & it doesn't do the trick.

First - stacked walls are great for initial placement but then they don't edit well. ... So click on the stacked wall and pick breakup.  That will break the wall up into its indiidual wall types... All in their same place as when stacked.  Now you can edit as necessary.

Thanks so much... I'll give that a try. 

I'm panicking!

Found another method that works... (From CadClips!)

Simply draw another wall at the top of plate level, from the point where the existing wall stops, across the empty space. Attach it to the roof, then join the two walls. 

Nice.
