  1. I am doing an electrical plan for a renovation project. I want to delineate new duplex outlets from existing outlets. I wanted to do it with color on the plan. I thought I could use the eyedropper but it is not enabled in the electrical plan. Can this be accomplished by another method? Is this the way such a thing is done? If not, how do others do this besides having notes everywhere. Thanks, Lexington HDPro 2021
  2. Could you please share where the tutorial is to create a drop-in tub. Thanks!, Rock HDP2020
  3. I too have not been getting this temporary interior dimension feature (when clicking the interiors of doors or windows) since I upgraded to Pro 2016. I now have Pro 2019 and it still isn't working. Any clues as to why and/or a fix? Inadvertent buried setting somewhere? Thanks, Rock HDPRO2019
  4. I looked in the link that you suggested and the answer states: When choosing a file naming convention and file management system, therefore, try to use short file names and limit the use of folders nested within other folders. Through poor file management on my part, I now have important files with multiple "too long" names, and multiple nested folders and they won't 'save'. The only way I am able to save them is to print pdf's of them. Is there a way to re-name these files with shorter names, ie to separate the long name from the file itself in order to resave it and start doing what

  8. I have a paper line drawing elevation of the back of a very large house with multiple levels. I gave up trying to get this monster drawn correctly into the program-given my deadline. My plan now is to scan/import a line drawing of the elevation into the program and essentially do a CAD drawing over the drawing. Is there a way to attach an elevation view of a window or a door (for instance) into a CAD drawing or is there a way to apply/paste an elevation object of a window or door (for instance) into one huge transparent wall that's the width and breadth of the entire back of the house (as re
  9. I keep getting a warning that the file can't be saved because the name is too long. How do I rename the file and/or move it to a simpler file? Thanks! Rock HDPro 16
  10. Thanks, David. That is definitely worth exploring... print-out a PDF of the floor-plan and overlay the links. Appreciate it. If anyone wants to provide a step-by-step, that would be cool. In fact, I may be the one if I have time to delve into this. Rock
  11. I am doing some 'sketches' of possible floor-plans. I would like to add hot-links to these floor-plans which a client could click on to get a pinterest photo (for instance) to show possibilities. Has anyone done this or know how this could be done? Thanks! Rock HDPro 16

    Rail Cap Issue

    I just upgraded to HD16. When I make an interior wall into a railing, then change that railing into a "solid" rail to basically make a sheetrocked kneewall with a properly sized wood cap, this is what I get. If I remember correctly my older version used to resize the cap to accomodate the adjusted size of the new rail but this isn't doing that and I can't find where I can adjust the size of the cap. Help? Rock HDPro16 Attached Thumbnails PS: I posted this in the wrong discussion forum and couldn't figure out how to move it over here so...
