  1. You're awesome. Thanks for taking the time to write this!! Looks like if I use the 360 panorama I will just ask them to view it from a computer screen. I'll definitely be using gyro viewing for the 3D viewing from pc. Great tip about rendering from basic to standard. I have definitely had trouble with the 3D models bogging down my computer.
  2. Hello, Thanks so much for your reply. I am actually referring to 360 panoramas, and you are referring to 3D viewer models. If you go under 'my account' you can see what I mean. Do you know anything about the 360 panorama interface specifically? I think the 360 panorama is easier for my clients to view and use from their phones.
  3. Still never received replies. Anybody have tips?
  4. Is there a way to view 360 panoramas on your phone without requiring you to rotate your phone around? Is there a way to instead use your finger to rotate around the model? This is quite annoying as most of the time when I view panoramas I'm sitting down in my chair.
  5. Is there a way that I can move it to a different layer of my choosing? Floor registers are currently on the 'fixture' layer. The issue is that I need to keep the 'fixture' layer on to show toilets and bath tubs. However, I don't want floor registers displayed. I suppose I could delete the registers, but they are needed on different sheets. With Registers.pdf
  6. The goal is to be able to create a high quality image of a floor plan that can be used in real estate listings. Here's what I've been doing: File > Export > Export Picture (BMP, JPG, PNG) I have tried playing around with different PPI (see attached) and all of them look blurry and of poor quality. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
  7. Forget it. It's 34 MB zip file even after removing unnecessary symbols. There has got to be a simpler way to get a solution to this answer. I appreciate your attempt to help.
  8. Attached is my .layout sheet. I can't upload my .plan file because it's too big. A2- Arrell Basement Elevation Sheet 1.layout
  9. Eric, it won't let me attach my .plan file because it's larger than 14MB. Ideas?
  10. A1- Arrell Basement Proposed Plan upload.layoutSee attached image. All views on my layout page are using the 'technical illustration' rendering technique, but for some reason the top left one (newest) looks so different. All views on my layout page have been manually updated by me and are current. What am I doing wrong? Thanks A1- Arrell Basement Proposed Plan.layout A2- Arrell Basement Elevation Sheet 1.layout
  11. It looks like whenever you import a PDF, it goes to the 'CAD, default' layer. It would be nice for imported PDFs to be on a separate layer and I'm going to request that in another part of the forum. Thank you for your help guys.
  12. First question: I'm trying to trace over a home's original blueprints and imported the PDF. I am finding that it's really hard to tell which lines are the PDF and which are from Home Designer. Is there a way to change the PDF's transparency inside the program? Second question that is related to the first: is there a way to pin the PDF in the background so I don't keep moving it as an object? I keep deleting it on accident.
  13. Can anybody instruct me remove the room divider line from view? Thank you!
  14. I am fairly new to Chief Architect and Home Designer, and am wondering why these two products have been eliminated.
  15. I just tried it now for the first time. I was unaware of this tool and it solved my problem in question 2. Thank you. Keith, do you think you could live without the snap settings that display visual snap shapes in Pro?
  16. Hello, Please see the attached image for differences between snap settings in Architectural vs pro 2021. Snap settings in Architectural allow for object, angle, and grid snaps. Snap settings in Pro allow for object, angle, grid, endpoint, midpoint, center, intersections, etc. For anyone else using Architectural, do you find that the lack of snap settings is extremely limiting? I find that the display of snap shapes is essential do to any sort of accurate CAD drawing. I think the Features team should look into adding this for Architectural, as there is no good reason to disable this feature. RESOLVED (See Centerpoint.PNG) Using Architectural, can anybody explain to me how to make a perpendicular wall directly centered/equidistant? This is an easy thing to do in Pro with the midpoint snap, but not so much in Architectural. Thank you
