    importing a dwg or pdf

    See the options under File>Import You will probably need to follow his roof design, but I don't believe it will transfer into the program, so you will need to use the tools in the software to create the roof. There are articles on plot plans that might help. See the links I posted above. What about elevations?

    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. It's confusing when someone mentions Chief Architect so please leave that off. 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

    Troubled Vaulted Ceiling w/ Gable Wall addition

    Suite is limited so here is a way -- maybe not the best way, to cover things. Place a soffit with a molding along the wall. Adjust the molding so it becomes the ceiling surface. A bit tedious, but it seems to work.

    unusual roof

    Experiment with these settings to fix the problem in the upper right, then adjust the pitch to align the ridge. You can do math to calculate the pitch, or just guess like I did. Probably took 4 or 5 iterations to get close enough.

    Overlapping Walls

    I spent some time working on this problem when it was first posted and did not find a solution. Suggest sending in to support. I tried using different wall definitions, Room Divider walls etc and none of the Home Designer capable tricks worked. Chief has a tool that lets you edit these difficult wall intersections manually, but it's not available in HD.
