    display wall dimensions on an Orthographic Framing view

    What does your carpenter need to know to build that wall? The Home Designer products lack the ability to easily dimension framing.
  3. Look again at the 2nd post above where I requested you complete your signature and provided some self help resources. Go through the hour long Home Designer webinars on YouTube to start.

    Undercabinet Lighting

    You can use Edit Area to select just a portion of the plan, copy, paste into a new plan and upload it. Copy the plan and remove all the cars, furniture etc. Zipping the plan will sometimes get it small enough.

    Wall Thickness Dimensions

    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

    Island End Panel

    It depends. You can make a cabinet that is 3/4" deep and place it on the end. You can place a cabinet door by itself in the plan, then position it manually against the island.

    Camera View Issue in Basement

    The entire plan is a bit of a mess. It's been what I call "brute forced". Is this foundation correct?

    Gable/roof line tool stopped working

    @Jo_Ann I believe Architectural could do this. Changed the problem wall to a Pony Wall, lower part Room Divider. Dragged the foundation wall under the door over to align with the door edge. Need to fill in the wall with something.

    Gable/roof line tool stopped working

    I did this with a Roof Baseline Polyline, but would suggest you learn a bit about manual roofs and use the tools available in Pro.

    Gable/roof line tool stopped working

    Delete the Gable/Roof Line and instead, break the wall where you want the gable. Set the wall to Full Gable.

    Widow's Walk

    I have a feeling that a pony wall with a railing on top was a new feature in 2019. I can't keep up with all the changes ... You will need to add one more floor and an Open Below room for the railing. Make sense?

    Did you notice the difference between how things look in my video and how they look on your system? I don't know why -- might be a problem with Pro 2018. Are you current with updates?

    What do you mean "convert"? You make yourself familiar with ADA guidelines, then create a plan.

    How to delete part of the 2nd floor?

    I'm sure you are manually drawing interior walls, moving them, maybe deleting them. Manually placing cabinets, windows, doors etc. Exterior walls are no different. They are just objects to the program.
