  1. So I have a curved stairwell against a curving wall in the foyer with rooms having straight walls behind the curved wall. I'm trying to add shelves and cabinets to the room behind, but any time I get close to the intersection with the curved wall, everything snaps to the radius, even if it's opposite the arc. It also doesn't have to be cabinets. It's any object. Beds, furniture, etc. How do I get HD to ignore the curved wall in the other room and lock things to the current wall. Otherwise, how do I just lock the components from rotating? Thanks, Beo
  2. I'm simulating this visually with a four slab sliding door, but I want to be able to recess them into the adjacent walls for a completely clear opening. I'd like to actually have a model that worked that way. Thanks, Beo
  3. I managed to get it solved, although not terribly cleanly/easily. I was using auto floating dormers, which don't penetrate the roof. There's an auto dormer that appears to be designed to do what I want, but it appears to have some significant bugs. I finally just built a completely separate design to test with (attached). There seems to be some variance just with the room choices for the second story balconies. I used balconies on my design, but HD appears to consider those only apply to interiors (it wants an exterior wall around them). I had to manually fix all that in my design. Here
  4. Thanks David, The dormers are actually already on the attic level. I'm trying to push the ceiling of the second story up into the attic and that's where things are getting weird. The one thing though is that as mentioned I initially started with the room option to put the ceiling on the bottom of the roof plane. That led to having to add the walls in the attic, etc. The one thing I haven't tried now that I'm drawing ceiling planes is to go back and put them on the second story instead of the attic and see what that does. It's possible that would change the interpretation of so
  5. Hi, I'm designing a plantation style home with dormers over the balcony since putting them flush with the interior wall looks funny. I have a two story entry way and would like to pull the middle dormer into the entry with a vaulted ceiling, but that doesn't work automatically. I'm expecting to have to explode the dormer and edit it to get where I need to be, but thought I'd post here and see if there are any suggestions or guidance. To vault the ceiling, I've added knee walls in the attic to go to the roof without causing the roof line to c
  6. Hi, I upgraded to Home Designer Pro primarily because it was supposed to provide better control over stairs, in addition to being able to group objects ($400 more is a lot to ask for something that even MS WORD does!). Unfortunately, I'm finding that the control over the stairwell is less than perfect, to say the least. I'm starting with a pretty simple two segment stairwell, and have it working ok if I just curve the bottom segment out into the foyer as below. However, what I'd like to do is fill in that awkward wasted space along the wall by having the stairs flare out
