  1. Hi David - thanks. I'm finding that it's not dependent on zoom level as I'm pretty zoomed in... simply, I can move some undercabinet lights, but not others. They're identical otherwise.
  2. Update: I can move under-counter lights in some elevations views, but not others.

    Cabinet tools - Lighting "inside" cabinets?

    I saw the question as it appeared in my email - seems to have been the same question, i.e. how to put a light "inside" a cabinet. The cabinet type should largely be irrelevant. Why create more posts for the same topic? Genuinely curious. Obviously, leaving my topic in place was indeed helpful as anticipated, or, at least, a step in the right direction.

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    Ok, got it. The roof, as built automatically, was not attached to the wall of the house. I dragged it to touch in plan view and that seems to have worked.

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    Hmmm... It doesn't appear to be connected (see daylight between roof and wall in section below), and editing the 2nd floor (besides causing a crash & forcing me to restart.. whoops) doesn't have any effect...

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    Not sure if this is a clue, but in section, the lower roof doesn't seem to be connected to the wall. Hmm...

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    Tried that for each wall; no dice. As noted in my first post, "...and not sure what to look up or what this is called."

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    Ah - maybe I'm editing the wrong thing? Which component should I actually be editing?

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    Interesting... I used a room divider - sliding it around doesn't seem to change much. I think it could be related to this.

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    Hi Keith - thanks - tried it - I don't think HD knows what's actually "inside" vs. "outside" the structure.

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    Not sure how to do that - the whole 2nd floor wall (including the exterior portions) is affected when I change the type.

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    I have a 1-story room with a vaulted ceiling that attaches to a 2-story wall. The geometry appears correct, but I'm not sure if it's possible to tell it that the 2nd story wall exposed by the vault is actually inside the house... and not sure what to look up or what this is called. What's the best way to "fix" it? Hoping there's something automatic.

    Hi again- Just out of curiosity, what software are you planning to import into?

    Cabinet tools - Lighting "inside" cabinets?

    Hi Keith - good question. Someone may search with the same question and find the answer... I may have found it when I searched if someone else had posted it before me. I looked for the lighting first under the Electrical drop-down (thinking they'd work like hi-hats), though the light object info, and through various places in Cabinet settings...(note that it's under the heading of "Advanced Cabinet Tools" on the website - but it's not specifically a "cabinet tool") as well as looking through both the Reference Manual & User's Guide in the Cabinet sections - neither of which, for example, contained reference to "undercabinet" or "under cabinet", which are industry-standard terms. A search for "lighting" brings up 83 results, one of which is "A selection of free-standing and ceiling-, wall and cabinet-mounted light fixtures is available in the Library Browser at Home Designer Core Catalogs> Architectural> Lighting." - which would have worked, but I didn't do a generic search for "lighting". In fact, the description as it appears says lights can be placed "inside" cabinets - meaning to me something like a cabinet with glass fronts and interior lighting. Unfortunately this does not seem to work with a puck - it will only snap to the underside of cabinets, so I assume it would have to be positioned manually. So - essentially - to help others who may have the same question.
