  1. Some defaults are dynamic, some are not. The video shows changing existing walls to reflect your wants.
  2. I'm using manual dimensions in the video, but you can Auto Dimension first, then edit those dimensions to do what I show.
  3. Please post images directly -- no need to make a PDF of an image. This makes it easier for others as an image shows in the forum. Making and attaching a really simple plan that demonstrates the problem would be helpful. Lots of different settings and ways of doing things. One room over one room, deck on 2nd floor. Framing built as you would build it etc.
  4. And please create a jpg or a png file from your screen capture software, not with a camera.
  5. Please start here: Please post questions in Q&A. Tips & Techniques is where you share your tips and techniques. You may delete this thread via Moderator Actions near the top of the page and repost there. Thanks
  6. In the video I show a Toggle Patterns tool. It may be found under the 3D menu. Architectural and Pro allow toolbar customization. Right click on a toolbar and choose Customize Toolbars. You may create new toolbars containing tools you frequently use and place them where you like. Toolbars will float -- drag into the drawing window, and dock in various places like the sides of the window.
  7. How did you get to where you are now? What page do you want to delete? Are you asking about the white Drawing Sheet? You may turn it off the same way it was turned on, via Print>Drawing Sheet Setup.
  8. Search the Home Designer website for tracing. Probably will be the top of the search results list.
  9. Please start here: Thanks
  10. Please start here: Thanks
  11. Plan from video HDMainfloorplan (eric).zip
  12. @Colesb See the Chief YouTube channel and my YouTube channel (I have a bunch roof related) and the Home Designer website for more info.

    A screen capture or two of any messages you are getting might help someone diagnose the problem. Can you explain? What's preventing you from using it?

    @ntraider Chief has a Simpson catalog available for Chief Architect users who pay for the ability to access it. That catalog is not available to Home Designer users and should not be shared with them. I believe there are downloads available on the Simpson site, but do not know if they are compatible with Home Designer. Depending on your needs, you may find something at the 3D Warehouse (Google it if unfamiliar).
