So I'm working on this project where I have a gable wall attaching to the roof above.  Pretty standard, right?  Right, well, over the past few weeks, every once in awhile I notice that half of the gable wall will come "unattached" from the roof (see attached image).  If I select the wall and detach the top from the roof and then reattach to the roof, the problem is resolved, but only for the next hour or so, then half of it will automatically detach itself again. 

 

It's not a huge problem because as long as I remember to detach/attach before plotting, I can live with it.  Regardless, it's still frustrating and I would like to see if anyone has similar experiences and or solutions.  Thank you.

Do you have 2 seperate walls there?  Its hard to tell from the picture.  How did you create the wall?  You could try editing the wall profile and aligning it to the roof and locking it.

Yes, there are two different walls.  The base constraint for the wall on the left is level 1 and top constraint is level 3, however the base constraint for the wall on the right is level 3 and has an unconstricted height of 3-feet and is then attached to the roof above.  It's a funky configuration, which I'm sure has something to do with the issue at hand.

 

Is it possible to create sloped wall profile lines?  How do I lock a wall to a roof?  Isn't this essentially what happens when you attach the top of a wall to a roof?

I don't have an answer to why it keeps detaching so I was thinking of using this as a workaround, I'm not sure if it will work.  It is a different situation so it might.  I attached a picture for you to get an idea of what I mean.  If you just click the wall, edit profile, follow the profile of the roof, the while still editing the profile hit align and click the roof then the sloped wall and lock it and the wall will be connected to the roof.  Its not ideal by any means but it may fix your problem.

Interesting, I'll give this a try right now and see how it goes.  How do I lock it to the wall?

Once you hit the align and select the roof then the wall line a pad lock will pop up.. click on the pad lock to lock it.
