A pop-up will open informing you that structural editing is locked. Click the blue Unlock button to start editing the architectural structure of the model.

Once you've unlocked structural editing you can click on the pencil button again. This time a drop-down menu will open showing you all the different structural elements that you can draw such as walls, windows, and doors.
