  1. I am trying to put to match roof shape but it only will follow one roof line. Is there a way to custom shape the window? I couldn't figure out a way to break the line to customize the shape how I want.
  2. I am having issues with auto generated walls in the attic. They are not connecting where they should for some reason. Also, I have one wall that is not stopping at the foundation below and just goes through it below.
  3. I am building a house with a monolithic slab but the footing wants to project outside of the main floor walls like a typical foundation wall would be. How do I flush the main floor wall with the footing of the monolithic slab?
  4. Thanks David. That corrected the exterior wall issues as I had the roof butting into the walls instead of going under them. I still have some issues on the interior view of those intersections. See photos
  5. I am designing an A frame and have a few walls that are not intersecting with the roof line the way I want. Some walls I have been able to break and adjust to match the roof pitch. Not sure if that is the best way or if there is a better way. Some walls will not let me break them to do what I want. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  6. When starting a new plan there are all the default settings to choose from. Contemporary, modern chic, etc. Is there a way to convert an already made plan from one preset to another?
  7. Eric, Thanks for the help. We are toying with the idea of doing a shed roof over the porch instead.
  8. I am trying to change the roof lines on this design and I can't figure it out. I want the three front walls to be gables but not connecting to eachother. The attic walls are extending in further than I want but I can't change those without it messing up alot more. Can you guide me how and where I can get help with this?
  9. I am missing the Total living area calculation that normally shows up below my drawing. I check the display options and there isn't an item for this. Where do I find it?
  10. I have two walls, technically railings that I am building perpendicular to eachother. I want them to be within an inch of eachother but not connected. Is there a setting to override to auto snap?
  11. Eric, thanks that fixed it. Why would it default to that?
  12. I am trying to change some room specifications but when I try to click on the room to select it, nothing comes up. I checked all the wall connection points and they are good. I even tried deleting all the exterior walls on that room and build them again, still nothing. What am I missing?
  13. This is awesome. Thanks so much!
  14. So I have seen this topic discussed a bit on here but I do not have my answer yet. I want to have the ceiling open with timbers above the bar area but let the siding on the left flow over the top still. I have watched the videos on ceiling beams using the soffit tool but I am not seeing how to incorporate this into the gable wall. Thanks for all the help. Sorry my sketch is very crude but I think you get the idea,
  15. Thanks, Ill give that a try. It is set to 2" now and some windows automatically snap together but others aren't. I do want to keep the distance at 2" though.

    Window mullions

    I am trying to group windows together and a few of them are automatically creating a mullion. Some areas are not. Is there a way to manually add this?
  17. I did try the defaults earlier and couldn't figure anything out. I tried what you recommended and that didn't fix it either. I ended up clicking "automatic rebuild framing" and that solved it. thanks for the help!
  18. I recently increased my floor height on the second floor. I increased the main floor walls from 8' 6" walls to 9' walls. The walls stayed in position while the ceilings went up. Now in the cross section, it shows the bottom plate in the floor system and the double tops plates are 5" below the ceiling height. How do I fix this?
  19. I am trying to build a simple garage with 12' ceilings, 42" foundation wall and an 8" drop from SWT to finish floor. When I change one number is changes the others, I go back and forth and feel like I am chasing myself in circles. I must be changing a value not meant to be changed. I have got the desired results a couple times but when I click OK and go into the cross section view, it as changed back to the original values. Is there a default setting I need to overide? Also, for getting the desired stem wall height and ceiling heights am I only suppose to change the absolute values and not the relative values? This seems way more difficult than it should be, there must be a simple step I am overlooking. Thanks!
  20. With OneDrive the file is stored in both locations. However I went into my C drive and opened the the template file directly from there and it worked. You must be correct about the OneDrive interference. Thx!
  21. Where is the repair option? Or am I just suppose to uninstall and reinstall the program?
  22. I keep getting an error message when opening a new plan file. I can open old files and they load fine. It says the file could not be found. I tried renaming the folder and that didn't solve anything. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  23. The way this program is setup I don't think it will allow me to do that. Unless you have a suggestion on how to...
