    Hangar Help

    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

    Stepped floor in garage not working

    All good solutions above, but in reality, raised areas like that are normally poured along with, or on top of the garage floor and don't have additional stemwalls or footings below.

    Help with Roof

    After watching David's video ... Edit>Reset to Defaults Select All Floors, and then check all the options below. That will clean up all the problems. Reset the walls to gable and you should be good. ----------- And one more request ... 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.

    Dormer Construction Again

    You cannot use the dormer tools to do what you want. Notice the wall on the dormer is not aligned over the wall below. You will need to explode the dormer, and then the dormer roof becomes a manual roof plane. What part of the roof is giving you trouble?

    Dormer Construction Again

    The simple answer is to learn and use manual roofs. Nothing wrong with starting with auto build, but you will save time and be less frustrated using manual instead of trying to coerce the auto builder to do what you want. People will look at the image and see a full width dormer, I see a 2 story house with an extra U shaped roof plane -- something that may be added at any time. Search for decorative truss. I've shown how to manually do them. You can also just use a truss generated by the program. And try to build a complete model. If you want a porch, it should be there as it will make a difference in how the roof builds.

    @gspeasl Best to start a new thread. It's confusing to everyone when different problems are being discussed, and the OP will continue to be notified about things unrelated to their question.

    Is the plan publicly available on the internet? The request was for your Home Designer plan file, not the one you are copying from.

    User Preference Click Option

    No settings to do that, but I'm curious what advantage this alternate procedure would provide. And generally, you would click (left-click) not right-click. You still need to move to the end point to complete the action.

    Don't use a dormer. Create a room and raise the ceiling.

    Drywall showing through to overhang on roof

    ChiefTalk is for Chief Architect, HomeTalk is for Home Designer. You need to be on ChiefTalk. Could you post an image or 2. I don't have the model open and with the trial, unable to save. Are you asking about these? They are invisible walls and may be deleted.
