    Can't create different ceiling heights

    That is what I meant when I said I turned all the display layers on. The screen shot shows everything turned on that is in the plan (as indicated w/ the red cross).

    Can't create different ceiling heights

    Just as an FYI, here is a screen shot of the first floor (and there's literally nothing on the second floor but the exterior walls) w/ everything stripped out of it and all the display layers turned on. I do have a lot of saved cameras, but otherwise I don't see anything odd. File size for this plan is 114MB.

    Can't create different ceiling heights

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I had already tried stripping out the bric-a-brac (which is how you spell it, btw) but that did not significantly reduce the file size. I did just copy the whole floor over to a new plan, and I was able to make the changes to the ceiling height w/o any problem there. I can use that file for the current purpose (trying to see how the crown molding will die around a corner and how far into the entry to carry a soffit, questions that the contractor asked me yesterday since he's about to build it), but I'm still unclear about how the file got that big, why it won't get smaller, and why setting the default ceiling height at the beginning should matter. In this case, the clients went back and forth multiple times about how high they wanted the ceiling in the kitchen to be (and we ended up w/ two different heights), so I have no idea how many times I changed it. I am a kitchen and bath designer, and I frankly didn't pay a whole lot of attention to the ceiling heights in the other rooms on the floor since I wasn't working on them. I'm not a newbie, but I don't see why, if I need to change all of the ceiling heights in the course of working on the project, it should cause this problem. Is it more likely to be related to the file size? One thing that I did do at one point many moons ago was import the architect's drawing as a picture to confirm that my measurements matched hers. I'm pretty sure I deleted it, and I can't find it in the plan, unless it's still hiding back there somewhere. (I had set the brightness to 100% to leave it in the background in case I needed it again.) Could that have done something?? It's been a looooong project w/ these clients, so I'm not sure what else I might have done to make the file so unwieldy, but I'd be interested in hearing any other thoughts.

    Can't create different ceiling heights

    I have been trying to set a 112-1/4" ceiling height for the entry in one of my HD Pro 2018 plans. Default height for the 1st floor is 114-1/4", but whenever I change just the entry, all the other rooms change as well. Have read thru the Knowledge Base article on the subject ten times and cannot figure out why this is happening. I cannot attach the plan because it is too large (128MB, and max file size for an upload is 25MB). Thanks in advance for any help.

    Door frame

    I had played with the casing, but didn't think to set the reveal to a negative number. That seems to have worked perfectly. Thank you!

    Door frame

    Visible in a camera view. I am trying to make the door have the exact dimensions of the door in the shop drawings to show my client exactly how this door will look in the room. The 2" jamb plus the 2" panel frame means 4" of material on the outside of the door, and I can only get 2" to show.

    Door frame

    I want 2" of the jamb to be visible w/in the 60" total frame width of the door.

    Door frame

    I am trying to create this door in HD Pro 2018, and I can't seem to figure out how to get that 2" frame around the door. Am I missing something obvious? I have the panel frames set to 2-11/16, but that still leaves me 2" off on each side, as well as on the top.
