Art,

I searched the forum for "mansard " and the best method was given by Matt Panzer to create a roof object then overlay a rectangle, select both and use "Clip Surface" from the modify menu.  This returns a message that objects are not compatible.  Perhaps this method does not work on my older version (architect 2010)   Still searching..

Modify>Convert>Convert to generic solids  is the menu option you could try.

I don't seem to have a roof object (using Landmark) so can't test it on that one. It may be that the object is not supported for conversion to generic solid but at least you could try to see if it works. If it does then it might be an option to get what you are looking for.

Or you could try drawing an Extrude to represent the material you want to remove then use the Subtract Solids... command. In VW2020 this has the effect of converting a Roof object into a Solid Subtraction
