    Help With Layers/Floorplan View

    I am wanting to declutter my floor plan view prior to printing. I have several decor items that are classified as "Furniture, Interior" - some of which I want to show (such as stools at the island) and some which I do not (such as glasses on a shelf). Is there a way to classify the stools/the items I want to show under a different/new layer set so I can toggle on/off accordingly?

    Apron Front Sink - Cabinet Showing Through?

    Thanks Eric!
  3. I am trying to place Kohler's undermount apron front sink (K6546-4U) into a cabinet. I am having issues with the cabinet box showing through the top of the sink front. It seems to me that its the "Separation" that is showing through but I'm unable to change the colour of just that component of the cabinet. Is this a glitch of some sort with the catalog item or am I not doing something right here?

    Main Floor with Different Levels/One Step

    Thanks Eric. This is what worked for me: Created my main floor. Divided my room. Created railing and made it invisible. Entered my finished ceiling height for each room. For the room that was LOWER: under "absolute elevations" under "Floor" - entered the difference in height.

    Main Floor with Different Levels/One Step

    Hi David, Thank you. This is the method I should use even though it is only ONE step/stair between "levels"? Is there no way to adjust floor/ceiling height to accommodate for this?

    Main Floor with Different Levels/One Step

    This may be a silly question but its something I have not yet had to do yet in Home Designer. I am trying to recreate a main floor which has two different levels - the kitchen/dining room has one step down into a living area. Do I need to create two different floors for this even though it is all technically the main level in the home? Very much appreciated if someone could point me in the right direction for how to do this. Very much out of my repertoire

    Lights Turning Off While Exporting Photo?

    Thanks Eric, I'll do that. I just wasn't sure if I perhaps had something wrong in my settings that was causing the issue.

    Lights Turning Off While Exporting Photo?

    Hi David, Thanks for your reply. I have a gaming laptop with a NVIDIA GTX 1650 video card (4GB) so we're good there. The laptop is just a month old so I imagine everything is up to date and not corrupted although I don't know how to check that? Using the export image command. I included a screen capture in my original post to show that the lights are on prior to and while exporting the image.

    Lights Turning Off While Exporting Photo?

    I get my shot set up to export a photo and all of my lights are on. They stay on while the photo saves (photo attached). Once complete, however, my 3D view and the exported photo has all lights turned off. I seem to only have this issue when "Hide Camera-Facing Exterior Walls" toggled on but I need this on to get the shot... Any idea how to fix this?
  10. Hmm, now I'm wondering if mine is just defective. I'll check these ones out though. Thank you!
  11. I purchased a Logitech MX Anywhere 2S and while I'm able to program it's buttons for different commonly used keystrokes (which I love), the scrollwheel on it does not click/allow me to hold and pan around my 3D views like my old $30 mouse did. In short, I'll be exchanging it for something different but just wondering if anyone here has any recommendations before go into it blindly like I did the first time. Thanks!

    Adding Panels to Cabinets/Island

    Worked perfectly! Thanks once again for your help!

    Adding Panels to Cabinets/Island

    I'd like to add panels to the back and sides of an island I've created. I've found a link that shows how to do this in Chief Architect but the method shown isn't an option in Home Designer Pro. Is there a workaround for this? https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-03028/customizing-cabinet-back-and-side-panels.html

    Creating Layout Template

    Oh, thank you so much for doing that Rick, it looks great like that as well! And I'm relieved to hear that they don't show up when printed which is what matters. Looks like I'm good to go ahead with it then. Thanks again!

    Creating Layout Template

    Okay, I created the file using Bullzip however I am still seeing the lines... Also, when I use Bullzip, I can see the border/background of my logo image? I created the image with a transparent background and it does not show up at all when I use Chief to create the file. Layout Template (Bullzip).pdf
