  1. Hello RJRDesign, Home Designer Suite does not have a layout feature in it. This feature is available in Home Designer Pro and the Chief Architect Premier/Interiors versions of the software. Which tutorial are you following? If you’re just trying to export a PDF of your plan or a camera view, go to File->Export->Export PDF while in your view.
  2. System settings->Appearance->Always Hello Beth, Regarding your scrollbars, there is a setting on MacOS that affects the scrollbars within Home Designer. The setting is called Show Scrollbars. You’ll want to set it to Always and relaunch Home Designer. The setting is located: MacOS Ventura: Apple Menu->System Settings->Appearance MacOS Monterey and earlier: Apple Menu->System Preferences->General Regarding your jumping camera, this sounds like unexpected behavior in the software. I would recommend reaching out to Chief Architect’s Tech Support 208-292-3399 and have them take a look.
  3. Hello Donco15, The backup USB can serve a few different purposes: 1. It’s useful in situations where internet is slow or security is a bit tighter. The software still needs to activate online, but the content necessary to install is already there. 2. It’s a backup medium for the program installer, core catalog content, and other resources. Some people find it handy so they don’t have to track them down on the website if they need it down the road. I hope this helps!
  4. Hello again, The features you are describing are features found in the Chief Architect line of software. Specifically, templates, the ability to import/export default settings, and use style palettes. Here’s a couple resources about these features in Premier/Interiors: Templates: Style Palettes: The way you are currently doing templates is what is currently possible in the Home Designer products.
