    Cabinet, Drawers & Doors won't Display

    I figured it out! In the Default Settings under Cabinets>General Cabinet Defaults, if the "Show Closed Doors/Drawers in Plan View" is unchecked, then the Cabinet, Doors & Drawers" will not display. If it is checked, they display properly.

    Cabinet, Drawers & Doors won't Display

    I have a plan that will not display "Cabinet, Drawers & Doors" in Plan View even though it is checked in the Layer Display Options. This is specific to this plan. They show correctly in other plans. I'm at a loss of why this is happening. I have tried everything I can think of to get them to show. This is a plan created in HD Pro 2019 and then opened and saved in HD Pro 2020.

    How To: Stop Stair Stringers at Second Floor

    I have struggled with this all day and can't seem to find a way to stop the wall stringer on my stairs from sticking through the floor at the top of the stairs. Is there something I'm missing, or is this just something I will have to live with.

    Edit 2D CAD Blocks for Symbols in Home Designer Pro 2018

    Success! Through experimentation I was able to create the new 3D symbol with the correct orientation of the 2D CAD Block. I first created a new plan in Home Designer Pro 2018 with four exterior walls only. I then created the new 3D symbol in this plan. Voila, the orientation of both the 3D symbol and the 2D CAD Block were the same. Once this was accomplished, the symbol and CAD Block orientation were correct when placed in the existing plan where I had originally tried to create the new 3D symbol. I'm not sure why I was unable to create the new 3D symbol in the existing plan. The plan had been rotated 180 degrees and maybe that had something to do with why the 2D CAD Block orientation was off by 180 degrees.

    Edit 2D CAD Blocks for Symbols in Home Designer Pro 2018

    Thanks David. I have tried changing the orientation of the symbol in Sketch Up, but that doesn't seem to make any difference on how Home Designer Pro creates the CAD Block. Maybe they will add this capability to Home Designer Pro 2019!
  6. When I download symbols from 3D Warehouse, often the orientation of the 2D CAD Block is 180 degrees from the 3D Symbol. I know there is a way to edit the orientation of the 2D CAD Block in Chief Architect, but so far I have not been able to find a way to do it in Home Designer Pro 2018. Any help is appreciated.
  7. Does anyone have a set of Application Specific 3D Settings for nVidia (EVGA) GTX 1050 Ti SC 4GB that work well with Home Designer Pro 2018?
  8. Looking for the best application specific 3D settings for in the nVIDIA control panel (GTX 1050 Ti SC) for Home Designer Pro 2018.

    Build Roof Specification, Pitch Setting, Not Working

    I solved this issue. I don't think it used to work this way, but I had to go the the Default Settings and change the pitch on the Roof tab of Exterior Walls.

    Build Roof Specification, Pitch Setting, Not Working

    This seems to be a new phenomenon in HD Pro 2017. Already tried your suggestion with new, simple, 4 walls, plan. The result is always 6/12 pitch no matter what I set in the specifications. I guess I will have to contact tech support. Philip Home Designer Pro 2017 Build 18.3.1.2x64 Intermediate Skill Level
  11. Hello all, Home Designer Pro User since ver. 2012. Using Home Designer Pro 2017, Build 18.3.1.2x64 Windows 10, Anniversary Update Intermediate Skill Level. When I build a roof using the Build Roof Dialog Box, no matter what pitch I enter, the roof is built to 6/12. I had not noticed this before on earlier versions. I have to manually go through each roof plane and change it to the pitch I want. I have read the manual again, checked the Forum for answers with no solutions found. Anyone else experiencing this issue, or am I alone on this. Philip
