  1. Excellent illustration of ceiling heights showing how the wall height is controlled for the roof. I have struggled with wrapping my mind around this. Thank you.
  2. David, you have say yourself you did not try, is no harm in not reply if you cannot offer helpful advise. I have tryed and default settings have nothing to do with copy/paste between these file types, the size scale is not kept.
  3. I have tried this previous, it does not work. Sizing is not maintained with copy/paste between metric and imperial file types of the Home Designer.
  4. You probably don't need to worry unless you have a Dell / Alienware machine, as well as a relatively recent (within the past couple of months) update that they did to the Backup and Recovery utility that causes the conflict with the file image icons display. It actually doesn't just affect Home Designer, that's just the first program that I ran in to the problem with.
  5. These are a great place to start, thank you Kbird!

    What would be the best way to create this? Should I see if I can find one and import as a picture, or create from scratch using the CAD tools?
  7. I heard back from support on how to resolve my issue. Just wanted to post this here in case anyone else with a Dell runs in to the same problem. They said: Thank you for providing the requested information. In looking at the data you provided, it looks as though there is a third party application running on your system which is attempting to modify the display of icons in the Windows Explorer dialogs (such as Open Plan, Save As, Export windows, etc) and causing Microsoft to crash the application. It appears that the issue is related specifically to Dell’s "Backup and Recovery" service.
  8. No resolution yet, but technical support has asked for my software's Message Log, System Information, and a dump file when the error occurs and sent these articles for reference on locating/creating the files. Locating the Message Log Finding Information About your System in Windows Message: Chief Architect has encountered a problem and needs to close. If anyone else runs in to this, please send this stuff
  9. I just upgraded to 2016, and now every time I go to access the Open Plan dialog, or go to Save a new plan, or export an image or walkthrough, I just get a Windows error that the program has encountered a problem and needs to close. I have already submitted a ticket to technical support, but thought while I was waiting for a reply I would try posting here as well to see if anyone has run in to this after upgrading.
