  1. Thanks guys !! . . . your suggestions just help me to better understand the program and its offerings !
  2. Thank you to both Solver and David for your time. However, I've tried both solutions but having trouble with both of these ideas. I have renamed and saved certain cabinets (as per Solver) to my User catalogue. This did not work for me. As I change the degrees as David mentioned in his video it affects "all" cabinets with similar countertop materials (images 1 & 2). So I was still struggling with changing one set of cabinet's and not all of them being affected by that change. So my solution, however rudimentary, is that I changed the material tone slightly (image #3) and then used the adjust material definition and Wala ! it worked. I saw that there were two choices (image #4) for material layout (horizontal & vertical) but that did not work either. Also, why would my program (HD Pro 2021) not have the choice as mentioned above for "rotate angle" on define materials ? I hope my workaround helps others.
  3. I use HOME DESIGNER PRO 2021, running Windows 10. My question is this (see attached pictures): I want to rotate the materials on the countertops (shown to the right) so they run in line with the cabinets (image #1). I have saved the cabinets to my "user catalogue", which from what I've researched (see attached images #3 & #4) will then allow me to "rotate" those materials. However when I open the cabinet (my user item) and click on materials I don't see the "rotate" check box in my version of the program (image #2), what is my program missing here ? Also see how when the cabinets' are placed on different walls (90 degrees of rotation) the countertop then has rotated automatically . . . I am missing something here but not sure what.
  4. I am considering buying an iMac computer system. I currently have a Windows 10 Pro computer running Home Designer Pro 2020. Can I migrate my current copy of HD Pro 2020 to the iMac, or do I have to download a fresh copy of HD Pro 2020 (and maybe have to pay for it ?) Here are the Windows computer specs I have now . . . Processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7500 @ 2.93GHz 2.93 GHz Installed RAM 8.00 GB (7.87 GB usable) System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
  5. Here is my question . . . ( I am using HD Pro 2021 on windows 10) When I add (+) or customize a framing member, be it a joist, rafter, stud or such, how can I get it to be added to the materials take-off ? I've looked everywhere in the program and in the Q & A's but can not find an answer. thanks all !

    Falling Water

    Here is my try at recreating Falling Water
  7. Thanks Solver ! I'll give it a try
  8. I use Home Designer Pro 2021. On Windows10. My question is, why does my outdoor ceiling look disconnected from the roof ? Note the picture: the white ceiling is not touching the bottom of the roof line. I've looked thru all of the roof details as well as ceiling details but have not found the answer.
  9. I guess my next question is, if I change the exterior wall layout and need to redo the roof on that account, how do I do that without the roof going crazy after I've adjusted room ceiling heights ?
  10. Here is my issue. When I change ceiling heights (in this case a front living area (delineated by a "room divider" to the back portion of the plan) ceiling is 1' higher than the rest of the ceilings in the back of the house) I get this strange roof plane (image #1) ? If I place the ceilings the same level I get a normal looking roof plane (with auto roofs turned on (image #2)) Whether or not I have no ceiling or flat ceiling (in the front area) the roof stays the same (awkward looking) with the two differing ceiling heights front to back. I have auto roofs turned on, is that my problem ? or is there something else I am missing ? I have seen where others have gotten the roof the way they want it and then turn off "auto roofs", but I thought there was an easier way to remedy my problem, as I tweak the plan / ceiling heights, etc. I am using Home Designer pro 2021.
  11. Thank you David ! You have given me the clues I need to get it right and better understand all of the tools and details needed to work through my project.
  12. I, for the life of me, can not figure out why I can not get the roof framing to show when I click on either "orthographic framing" or "perspective framing", all I see (as shown) is the completed roof with shingles. What am I missing here ? I am having a beast of a time searching for my error . . . or misconfiguration setting somewhere ? I am using Home Designer Pro 2021 running Windows 10 thank you !
  13. How do I access older user catalogue data from Home Designer 10 ? It is an older version of which I can no longer use but had saved lots of custom made items that I would like to use in a newer version of Home Designer Pro 2021. Is it possible to look thru the file folders and find that data ? thanks ahead of time everyone !
  14. I just recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10, now my Home Designer Pro 10 will not open (asking to re-register). I realize it is an older version of Home Designer, what I am asking is if anyone has had the same issue with an earlier version of the program not opening once you upgraded Windows ? And if you solved the problem ?
