Does anyone know how to convert a hip on the roof to a gable end?

to edit the hip of a roof section try defining it using the "plane by three points" as described:
- select the roof slab;
- click the "Edit roof" button;
- select the inclination arrow;
- in the "Pitching Method" field in the Geometry toolbox select "through 3 points";
- now position 2 of the three points at the ends of the hip (in plan view);
- place the third point at the gutter line (in plan view);
- edit each node's height values (in 3D) to define the pitch.
