I am frustrated, having an almost impossible time selecting windows with my newly installed Home Designer Suite 2016. About a 5% success rate, seems to be hit or miss. 95% of the time I click on a window to select it, whether in 2D or 3D view, and I end up selecting the wall. Pressing the TAB key does nothing (I thought that was supposed to select nearby objects?). The thing is, this worked fine on the demo trial version, but now that I paid $99 for the working version so I can save projects, I have about given up trying to select windows. I know how it should work, because it was working flawlessly with the demo trial version; same software. One thing different is that I did save my project in a Dropbox folder where with the trial version of course I could not save anything. I can select other objects like walls, a bed, a range, I just have a 1 in 20 success rate selecting a window with the paid version. And I did update the software prior to all this, so I have the latest version. Very puzzled. Any thoughts? Can I return this for a refund if the problem is not resolved (because windows are very important for the house I am wanting to design).
Also, if I get lucky and do select a window, I can only resize it in the 3D view, not the 2D view. I can move it in the 2D view, but I can't resize it. All quite frustrating, clicking to select a window and nothing selects in 3D (95% of the time) or in 2D the wall usually selects. But I just don't get why I can not widen the window in 2D if I do manage to select the window!?
