    Arch in gable of roof over door

    OK guys, I need to be able to do this in BHGP8. Here is an example of a drawing I did in AutoCAD. Notice the arch in the gable portion of the roof, how do I do this in pro8

    Thanks for your help,

    To me, your image looks like the Elliptical Doorway in the Library. If AHD has it, I would guess that Pro does as well.

    But if this isn't what you are going for, I can't really tell if that is a window or not, you could always just use a different doorway out of the library and Control + drag it up into the gable wall above it and then use sloped soffits maybe to create the decorative piece?

    I have added another picture, please look carefully at my drawings and you can see my design is with an arch inthe gable end of the roof. You can see the arch better in the iso view. The straight on view shows the arch also but the decorative sunburst design over the door blends in with the arch in the gable.

    I need to know how to design the arch in the door, not some decoration above the entrance door itself.

    Thank you,
