Can't use 'move' to pull a line up while making a roof

I’m brand new to sketchup and am going through the tutorials. I’m trying to pull the ridgeline up using the move tool on a line that I’ve drawn on the top surface. I can move the line, but it’s only letting me move it left to right.

Hold the Alt key while moving the ridge line up.

Ok. Thanks

To explain that more (if I’ve got it right), the help at the bottom of the window will be saying something about pressing Alt to get autofold. If the move you’re trying to do is going to create new geometry, that’s what autofold will enable. Without the modifier key the things you’ve selected will just move where they can without making new geometry.
