  7. I have 2 plans: one is a land plan with elevations picked from google earth, heights and drains , etc. And i have a house plan that I made separately (my computer wouldn't be able to handle such big terrain , trees, plus house and all its details). Is there any way to combine them? Land plan and house plan. I tried to export, but if i export a house to the land plan, all floors are shown as one (first) floor and 3d view is not showing the imported house plan at all. I then tried to export a land plan and import it to the house plan, I see the house but i can't get a 3d view. Why i
  8. Sorry Sandra, I wasn't sure what it had. I started with Architectural and after a week I knew it wasn't "flexible" enough to do what I was going to need to do. Well worth the money to go to Pro if you plan to do a lot.of design.
  9. Not automatic, but easily done.
  10. Thanks Keith, but that's not an option in Architectural, only Pro which I am definitely thinking of upgrading to.
  11. Go to your defaults and check your dimensions tab and change the "locate objects" to center instead of sides.
  12. I there any way to dimension window location in the center of the window instead of the edge of the window?

  17. Here is a complete picture, The photo is only an example, I'm not trying to draw exactly this house, or that exact feature. I do however wish to draw this 'ribbon' of roof / cornice, or whatever it might be called around the house at the top of the 1st storey.
  18. You will need to post a better picture. Cannot tell what it is or even the exact shape.

  21. By direct manipulation of a wall poly line (Home Designer Pro Only or Chief Premier, not Suite or Architectural). By programming a wall to be a "Solid Railing" then you control its height by the Newels and Baluster Height input box (Chief Premier, Home Designer Pro, Suite and Architectural.) You mainly control wall height via a Room Specification Dialog - Finished Ceiling Height input box (the ceiling height controls the height of the ceiling and secondarily the height of the walls that form a room. This is all explained in your Reference Manual in detail. D
  22. I'm trying to draw this (see attached file) "cornice roof ??" at the 1st story of the house. But I don't know what it is really called, so I'm not sure what to search for to get help... Can someone help identify what this is called; and even better if you can give me a hint on how to create it (I tried drawing a really narrow deck without railings, and had some success, but I know it wasn't right...). I'm using Home Designer Pro 2021. - Mark.

    How do i edit wall height?
  24. In HD Pro with a layout file you will have to delete the old view on the layout page and then send from the new updated plan file the view which you wish to update on the layout file. in Chief Premier you have a "Relink File" tool for such purposes but again, that, along with MANY other features is why Premier is a lot more expensive than HD Pro, sorry.

  26. Good Morning (UK), Home Designer Pro. I have a number of iterations of .plan files for a project and a lesser number of Layout files displaying sections etc. When I 'up' a revision of my .plan (hence iterations), the Layout of course refers to the originating .plan file. Is there a way to modify the linking referred .plan file for each view (section drawing) on a layout or do I have to do a Layout 'Save As' and then delete the section drawing and re-Send To Layout ? Thanks in anticipation !
