    Jo_Ann i did a quick look but did not see those Templates you mentioned. i did see plain "Cottage" but not the others. i need to look more. i did not see a Samples folder either. maybe they are on the CD only and not installed. i will post a follow-up. thanks for the help.

    Thanks David, the manual procedure worked perfectly. only question is what if i want a 12' width? what should each side be roughly to start with. the tutorial uses 6' per side and that gives about 14'5" width. i want to start with "width" instead of feet per side. i haven't tried to figure it out, i'm sure i just need to play with it a little to figure it out.

    Home Designer 9.0 Build Does anyone know if any of the "Sample Floor Plans" has a Gazebo that can be Copied and Pasted? .

  8. I have created what i want in sketchup but I don't see where i can import a .skp file in Home Designer 9.0 Is there a way??
  9. Yes, i had thought of the wedge/inverted wedge, but the "Point" of exit of light from the projector would be as wide as the wedge and not a "point" so the spread would not be accurate vs ceiling fan placement.
  10. I have Home Designer 9.0 This version does not allo me to create a custom "polygon". I would like to use the PYRAMID shape but i need it to tilt over 90 degrees. is there a way to save the existing PYRAMID shape into User Libraries so i can "rotate" it 90 degrees?? What i am trying to do is use this "pyramid shape" as the displayed "light" field coming from a Projector to see if this light field will clear a fan which is in the path, but the fan "may be" high enough to not cause a shadow on the projector screen. The Point of the pyramid would be placed at the projector lens location and
  11. I used to increase the cabinet depth 1" and bury backsplash in the wall, but it became a problem to align multiple cabinets that same exact 1" within the wall. And they like to "snap" to a wall. the Material "Opening (no material)" for Backsplash works perfectly every time. I found that answer on the innerweb here: http://www.homedesignersoftware.com/support/article/KB-00989/ I have Home Designer 9.0
  12. Go to cabinet materials, Backsplash, under Misc, there is a selection called "Opening (no material)"
