    How to create a site plan without using a template

    A site plan would encompass things outside the structure like roads, driveways, drainage etc. Yes, you must choose a Template, and the Default Style template will probably work. Suggest you try the Getting Started and YouTube (look for Home Designer videos) links below. If you do select a template that already contains objects, just delete them and start with a blank plan. And ... I see you mentioned the two programs you have. 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 Home Designer - Getting Started - Setting Preferences and Defaults Watch on YouTube: http://youtu.be/s-TcAHsiMjg?hd=1

    Centering 2 story building on drawing sheet

    It's best to keep your structure near the 0,0 location, which I showed in the video, although I was not clear about this. Centering the drawing sheet moves the sheet to your structure which may be located far away from 0,0.

    Centering 2 story building on drawing sheet

    I'm not sure why anyone uses the drawing sheet, as arranging things usually happens in Layout. Use Edit>Edit Area>Edit Area (All Floors) to select and move a complete structure. You can center using the Center tool -- it will pick up the centers of the drawing sheet.

    Library Downloads

    You don't "open" the file. Library>Import Library or drag the file into an open Pro window or double click on the file and it should install in Pro.
  9. I forgot to show this, but if you want the green board to show in plan ...
  10. More specifically, I would make a copy of the default interior wall, rename it, change the materials, then change the walls you have drawn to use the new wall type.
  11. 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.
