    Is there a way to make curved inlay panels on the z axis? I want to take the armoire and make it match the dresser. I've taken a partition and sized it for the inlay but as you can see it won't allow me to curve it. Thanks
  2. Thanks. It didn't return the wall with the windows but did give me a new wall to work with. Do you think the wall with windows that are gone are going to give me problems later?
  3. I can't seem to select the part of the wall that I made invisible to have it visible again. I've toggled through with the tab key but with no results. Is there a work around? Elle If you don't like my signature, don't respond.
  4. I'm using a book by Terry Munson called residential design using chief architect X10 get some additional training. On one monitor I've got a trial CA going and on the other monitor I've got my Home designer pro going and following the instructions with both programs. I've come to a part in the directions in the Chief Architect plan, ( the book supplied the plan so I know that's right) that is different than my HD Pro plan and I'm asking for suggestions. I have followed the forums and have read from both Eric and David the "suggestions" to look for the answers first before asking and I believe I have. I have included in my profile the: Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using. You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.  And, turn on signature display too. ---- Resources for self help: The built in Help System (always a good place to start) Getting Started Knowledge Base YouTube Home Designer - Getting Started - Setting Preferences and Defaults Watch on YouTube: http://youtu.be/s-TcAHsiMjg?hd=1 Also I've followed the "suggestions" from David in his post titled CONFESSIONS OF A LONG TIME TEACHER/TUTOR. I've looked at: forums tutorials you-tube Reference manual Knowledge Base Help files(F1) So after doing my due diligence , my first question is what do I need to include in my post to give an accurate and detailed information to accompany my question? ie screen shots-plan file ect.

    Never mind, as usual as soon as I finally ask the question I find the answer. Just for the record I found the answer to be to place a rug from the Core Catalog> Accessories> Rugs to place the object rug. After placing the rug object then I opened the furniture box and went to materials and replaced the material from Core Catalog>Materials>Flooring>Rugs and voila. Thanks anyway. Elleinda

    This should be a simple question. I've started having problems placing rugs in my plan. As you can see I started looking for the answer in the HomeTalk Forum and have followed the steps suggested and I can't get it to work for me. I used the Microsoft steps recorder to allow you to see what I'm doing and hopefully someone will see what I'm doing wrong. Thanks in advance. Elleinda rugs.zip
