    2D Overall Site Plan

    You normally show both floors on a plot plan. Is there a reason you need to show the 2nd floor separately?

    2D Overall Site Plan

    I am trying to find the view which show a final overall view of the site including house, terrain, trees, plants etc on a 2D plan. Basically so i can show the dimensions of the house in relation to the plot boundary, roads etc. At the moment I can only view the 1st Floor which shows terrain info plus foundations and 2nd Floor is blank other than the floor plan. Thanks Ian

  5. You can always move a light by way of its dialog box. You can, sometimes with greater difficulty, select a light source in an elevation camera view but light sources/fixtures can be rather small so it requires one to zoom in to gain finer control. All such edits require patience and determination. Keep trying, keeping in mind my advice please. DJP

    Drawing Sheet Size

    Hello. Yes, I'm referencing Home designer Pro 21. It won't allow me to import onto a drawing sheet no bigger than what it appears to be a default of 22" x 17." I can only import those images by reducing to 1/8" and only if the plan fits those parameters. Thank you.
  9. Update: I can move under-counter lights in some elevations views, but not others.

    OR.. You could just lower the deck finished ceiling to 124".

    That's not an option. You will need to draw the beam in manually.

    I am trying to figure out how to have my railing follow along the pitch of the roof. My railing always portrudes through the roof. Garage House_01.plan

    In HD Pro, Architectural and Suite 2021 all paper size restrictions have been removed. In past versions the max size was 18x24. What do you have? DJP

    Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using. You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it. And, turn on signature display too. ---- Resources for self help: The built in Help System (always a good place to start) Getting Started Knowledge Base YouTube Home Designer - Getting Started - Setting Preferences and Defaults Watch on YouTube: http://youtu.be/s-TcAHsiMjg?hd=1

    Drawing Sheet Size

    Hello, my issue: no matter which drawing sheet I chose it always defaults to 18" x 24", making difficult to export a plan unless it can fit in an 18x24 drawing sheet. What I'm I doing doing wrong or not doing? Thank you.

    rectangular windows with slight radius

    You won't be able to do a consistent radius like this with Pro. What you can do is make one big window, then fill in the missing parts manually.

    Open the window and review the settings -- you should see something obvious.

    Hi, is there a feature to create windows like this? (subtle radius in the middle window, slightly larger on the outside) I can do the match roof, but its triangulated. Thanks in advance!

    Using the "Check Plan" tool - top of wall overlap...

    Suggest that until the structure -- walls, foundation and roof are correct, don't bother with anything else. No framing, electric, or other detail things.

    Using the "Check Plan" tool - top of wall overlap...

    Plan attached. Still over 30MB unzipped with no furniture or furnishings. There are a lot of issues still with the file. I'm a little embarrassed to be sharing it tbh but if you're willing to look at it and give me some help, that's great! The wall between the garage/upstairs and the original cottage is a mess. It's a complicated wall but we can draw it with paper and pencil but we can't make it work in Home Designer. Starts out as a block wall that steps down in one exterior corner that goes as high as the garage part of the wall and then is a stud wall for the garage and a stud wall for the floor above the garage but the first floor frames into it and there is also a split stair to the basement that has a platform on that wall as well as a straight stair from the main floor of the original cottage to the second floor above the garage. It's a mess. But that may be for another day. Right now I would like to know how to fix the walls that the Check Plan is flagging so there is one less thing that's wrong. TIA! ...Janet Cliffside_2020v4_forDebug.zip

    Attach the plan file. Try zipping it. Make a copy and delete all the cars, furniture etc.

    Eric, Thanks for the suggestions. I did both of these things and I still get the same error. Any other suggestions? Also, why would do this help? ...Janet
