Dormer: Roof Obj Won't Recognize 3DWindowSymbol

Recommended Posts

I'm closely following the instructions (Help and Video) for inserting a dormer into a roof object ... but no luck.  Window is a 3D only symbol.  Roof Obj and Symbol have Class = Roof-Main, and same Design Layer.  Layer and Class Options set to Show Others.  The Roof Obj never recognizes the Window Symbol.  


I've created dormers in the past without issues, but my current version VW17 seems to not work.  I'm using Roof Styles, with multiple components, for the first time.  I'm guessing this might be an issue.  


Any ideas what I may be doing incorrectly?

@Luke GilmerHi, when you create the symbol drag it from the resource browser directly onto the face of the roof, it should become a Dormer. Don't drag it onto the drawing and then try to insert it.
