    Walls at Intermediate Stair Landing

    I have a multi-level U or switchback stair. On the 2nd floor along the hallway on one side is a railing. On the run from the 2nd to 3rd floor I would like a wall starting at the intermediate landing to the underside of the 3rd floor. The program automatically generated a railing and a railings up the run where there should only be a handrail along the wall. How can I close off this space with a wall? I tried extending the run & landing out under the 3rd floor wall and drawing a wall on top of the stair but, that resulted in a wall covering up the 2nd floor hallway railing. Thanks! HDP 2020

    Walls at Intermediate Stair Landing

    Sorry it took a couple of days but, here's a snippet, it's hard to get a good angle. I've marked it up and hopefully this will help convey what I'm trying to do. Basically the intermediate landing is about 3'-4" below the underside of the 3rd floor so, I am trying to fill that and the stair run in with wall while leaving it open below. There should also be just a wall railing along the run as well. No railings at the landing or stair run. Thanks for your help! Stair landing 2-3.pdf

    Walls at Intermediate Stair Landing

    So I understand how to turn railings on & off on both stairs & landings. I also understand how to change railing types. However, what I am trying to do is have a wall at the intermediate landing and along the stair run to the underside of the 3rd floor. Then a wall hand rail along the stair run. In the images I posted esentially I'd be swapping those railings for walls. It would be open below the landing and stair run to the 2nd floor.

    How do you open the railing? I seem to only be able to open the stair, the railing is a component in the stair and it doesn't give me the option to make it a wall.

    Mannual Truss Web

    For this portico, how can I make 2 web components that start at the intersection of the kingpost and bottom chord and diagonally extend to the top chords at their mid-span? Thank you! HDPRO 2020

    I was hoping to be able to actually build it our of lumber so it would register correctly in the materials list. I was steering away from a standard roof truss because I had other pieces that made it a little less "standard" but, maybe I'll give it a try. I tried making it with rafters but, the ends pointy and I can't find a way of specifying the angle. Thanks!

    breaking shed dormer walls

    I cannot get the shed dormer walls to be broken by the roof plane I have tried floating dormers and they won't place back to back and still meet at the ridge line. These are auto dormers but you can see the wall go down to the floor. I have rebuilt this roof and dormers so many times and so many ways. I've deleted the roofs and reconstructed and sometimes the rafters don't cut for the dormer. HELP!

    disallow wall join

    I have a partial ht interior brick wall that butts up to a regular gyp wall how can I keep them from intersecting. They keep joining which brings the brick wall into the regular wall. Using Home Designer Pro 2019
