  1. Wow! That is a lot like dynamic blocks in Autocad but much better, haha. I will definitely grab a trial version as soon as I can. I think it is time to make that jump.
  2. Thank you Solver. Is that something that is adjustable in Chief Premier? I am really on the fence on upgrading. My house plan business is doing well enough that I can justify the expense. But I have managed to make Home Designer Pro work for all this time and supplemented very little with AutoCad.
  3. Here is an attached image of what I have going on. I am surely missing something.
  4. Why the down vote? I honestly don't understand that.
  5. I have a bit of an obscure question. When I set a kitchen island, I usually have at least 1 pendant light over the bar area. What is the best way to bring that pendant light to the appropriate height above the bar and not distort the fixture? I can set the height of course, but the chain does not go to the ceiling so it just appears to float in mid air. Thank you for any help on the matter.
  6. Does anybody happen to have roof pitch triangles that can be added to the User catalog?
  7. Hrmm. Is there a setting to select that or layer to turn on?

    Frieze Board

    I wanted to see what others are doing for frieze boards on brick homes. I have either used soffits or just skipped them all together.

    I upgraded and the freedom of sheet sizes is worth the cost of admission in my opinion. I am still looking for all of the improvements but so far so good. They have added some controls for stairs and railings which I am happy to see. I am on the edge of going to Chief Premier. If the market continues to boom in my area and business stays good I will make the leap.But I am doing well with Pro 2021 too.

    Porch Columns

    I just upgraded from Pro 2020 to Pro 2021, as my signature shows. In Pro 2020, when I had selected the railing style to be Post to Beam it would display the posts in plan view. I have noticed in 2021 that is no longer the case. I have not seen a setting for this, but has anyone else noticed this? Thank you
  11. I wanted to see what the best way to have the foundation wall line up under my framing as opposed to the pony wall.

    Foundation Wall

    I wanted to see what the best way to have the foundation wall line up under my framing as opposed to the pony wall. In our area we just run our brick all the wall down to the footing so I wanted to create this scenario so that my foundation plan lines up correctly. Thank you
  13. I have a client that is wanting a 3d rendering of a huge farm style home. I am wanting to create a built up molding but not sure if this is doable. Any tips are appreciated.
  14. Well I will correct myself, my theory did not work. The text is still incredibly small, even when I scale the pdf up 200%. Any suggestions on setting the text height?
  15. It seems to work pretty good, it does make it difficult to see on screen since the text in view is so small.
