  1. I've not done it, but don't know why it would be a problem. It's just CAD, not taxing on the system. Why not call and talk to someone in sales?

    User Defined Walls not working

    The good news is the walls are there. The plan is using Layout Set 33 for its layer set and should be using the Default set. The bad news is I don't know what to tell you to do to get them to show. Here is an idea if you are adventurous. Use Edit Area>Edit Area All floors to copy everything into a new plan. You may need to clean some things up, but that should get started. The image is looking at the plan in Chief Architect and I don't have an old enough version to fix the plan for you. You might contact Chief and ask.

    Display square footage in bottom task bar?

    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

    User Defined Walls not working

    Images should be in .jpg or .png formats please. They show directly in the forum and don't require a special download and a separate program to view. Wall definitions are stored within the plan file. If you will attach one of the problem plans, I'll have a look.

    Half wall in Essential

    No experience with Essentials. I see you also have Suite 2020. All the Home Designer products work the same, so if you see how to do it in Suite, but not in Essentials, then Essentials does not have that feature. There may be other ways. Can you show exactly what you want to do?

    High Ceilings

    You will need to show/explain how the actual walls are built. Something like a cross section. What's preventing you from doing this? Make a copy of the plan, delete everything except the structure. Zip the file if still too big.

    Invisible Walls, Soffits, and unwanted Crown Molding

    You should not have problems, but I cannot guarantee that. There is a checkbox in Chief that says Allow Editing In Select Home Designer Products. I checked it before saving. There are features in Chief not in Home Designer and you would not be able to edit those, but none were used in your file. I don't remember what I did other than deleting a bunch of things.
