  1. Thanks Eric. I reloaded it into the layout sheet on another PC with better specifications and its just fine. A time to go out shopping for new laptop. Thanks again
  2. Hi David. Are you viewing the layout sheet? The problem is in the layout sheet.
  3. I am keep getting unpleasant splashes of colour all over my elevation views. I cannot think of any suitable keyword to search for a solution. This does happens on most drawings and cannot really issue this standard of drawings to the customers. Please help. Drawings and layout sheet attached. MountRd124.layout MountRd124.plan
  4. Thanks Eric. Would we then have to "paint over" to hide the framing?
  5. The specified rafter thickness is 325mm. I purposely specified a deeper rafter size to demonstrate the issue. It is the same if I build new roof from scratch.
  6. I deleted it and rebuilt it few times
  7. I am changing the default rafter size but it does not change and just lifts up in the air as shown in the clip. I have tried changing the sub-fascia height and eaves fascia height and it does not seems to make any difference. Can any one help please?. File attached Rafter sizes dont change.plan
  8. Ok David. New walls are constructed to the current standard and will have different composition to the old walls and will always be different. Even with new build, one can have different composition. Is there a solution to this other than patching up?
  9. Yes David. I can explain why I did what I did. The is a remodelling project or an extension to the house as we say it in UK. The traditional convention for presenting the drawings is to show the new work as hatched. That is why I have left the existing house as blank and the new part is hatched. For 3D presentation, I want to show the house as real so both the existing and the proposed is shown in bricks. With regards to the layers, the brick wall is the main layer and do not have any cladding. This is shown as 100mm which is near to 102mm width of brick. For the inside, I do not wish to show too many lines and just want to show the structural width of the wall which is 300mm. As I don't want to show bare blockwork inside, I have taken 1mm from the wall thickness and created a 1mm internal layer. The total thickness as 300mm. My brick layer is not 1". So there still remains the unsightly issue of overlapping walls which messes up our presentation drawings. The splashback is a workaround but we want to determine the cause of it. We don't want to be plastering around the patches if we can help it. I wanted to know if I was missing the obvious but I think it may be a bug in the application. I will raise it with CA. Thanks for your time.
  10. Hi David. The connection I am referring to is outlined in red. It also appears overlapping in the elevation
  11. I am joining two different exterior wall types and at the junction it overlaps the other wall and creates an unsightly appearance. I have lived with it for a while it gives unsightly appearance on the drawings. I wonder if if any one know the cause and a solution for this issue. Thanks in advance.

  12. By default, text is centre aligned in callouts. I wish to align the text to the left but when you open it in specifications, there is no option to align the text. Would any one know how to left align the text?

    Make Cad Block

    Thank you Rookie, those are architectural block not Cad blocks. I am trying to add text blocks to the library and HD Pro don't allow this. I thought the work around could be to create them in Premier and then import them in. From what I can understand from Eric, that would not be possible. Is there a workaround this other than saving the text to one file and copy them in?

    Make Cad Block

    I understand that "Make Cad Block " is not available in HDPro 21 but would it be possible to create cad blocks in Premier, add them to the library and then import the library content into HD pro 21?
