  1. Eric, Received a response from tech support, Walls normal needed to be turned off in layer displays and it will only work in one of the cross section camera views and not wall elevation, I had walls normal display on. Thanks for your response. Vince
  2. I did build framing and ensured that the wall framing was diplayed in the view for the elevation camera.
  3. I recently upgraded from hdpro2019 to hdpro2020, In hdpro2019 I could take a cross section elevation and the wall framing would be displayed, and I could add, change, and modiify wall framing members as needed. When I try to do the same thing in hdpro 2020 i can't seem to get a view of the wall framing. The wall main layer with the wall studs cannot be displayed. I was wondering if I missed a setting in a dialog box, or if the feature was just eliminated in the 2020 version. Would appreciate an answer if anyone may have encountered this. Thank.
  4. Thanks For the help, and for the video David. The Plan is a layout of the existing structure as is before we remodel. We are in western Pennsylvania and the house was built around the year 1905. The framing is rough cut lumber and a full 2" x 4" (oak at that). The floor joists ( rough cut 2" x 8") even have a few hand hewn barn beams included in the floor structure. The layout of the stairs going to the attic are as I shown, a basic ladder. and the other two stair cases I drawn as is. We have the complete inside taken down to framing and ready to put an addition on. Attic stairs are coming o
  5. David, Attached plan is an "existing" plan for a remodel. I had (3) issues that I can't resolve. 1. Rake wall under staircase on first floor of plan. I intended to have railing over rake wall and abutt into the vertical wall. When the stairs were widened the railing was not available anymore. It looks like drawing the wall under stairs was that the wall would run the full length of the stair case or not at all. 2. Full camera view shows an issue with fascia and soffit connecting. A gap exists. I went back through roof planes and default settings but don't see where
  6. Still having issue with exterior wall material not updating in camera view. Tried changing a stock siding-6 exterior wall lap siding material to a different dimension. Change is reflected in wall type dialog box, but does not change in plan view/camera view. Is it suppose to or a program glitch? Is it possible to get another look at this topic? Wall problems.plan
  7. I created a new material and tried it. The color did change but the shake pattern didn't show up in the camera view. I did try your suggestion above and the color change did work when I blended it with the texture. Changing the material size in the material specifications didn't do anything.

  8. Wall problems.plan I am using Home Designer Pro 2019. I had started another project and encountered a problem changing a material in the wall type dialog. The attached file is a simple box drawn to just show the inputs that I have made in the dialog box for the wall types. I was going through and setting up my defaults before I began drawing the plan for another project. What I wanted to do was to change the exterior siding material to fiberglass cement board shakes (size and colors). My process was defaults > walls > exterior walls > edit > wall types > I selected siding-6 an

  10. I had tried again with a different room. I also tried the ceiling plane tool. Patio Plan For Kincaid.plan
  11. I am using Home designer pro 2019 build date 25 April, 2018 I have reviewed and studied the tutorials, reference manual and users guide and most of David's youtube videos and am unable to get the a truss roof over a deck room. Using the exterior wall tool I drew a box 20' x 50' and added a second story based on the first floor walls. I did not do any interior alls since I was doing a design for the deck only. I used the deck railing tool to bring a deck off the house structure that is 14' from the house exterior wall and 20' long. In edit - set defaults -
