  1. Sorry Sandra, I wasn't sure what it had. I started with Architectural and after a week I knew it wasn't "flexible" enough to do what I was going to need to do. Well worth the money to go to Pro if you plan to do a lot.of design.
  2. Go to your defaults and check your dimensions tab and change the "locate objects" to center instead of sides.
  3. Try making it from a straight railing and make it panels instead of balusters. Maybe spend some more time with your reference manual as well.
  4. Look at the bonus catalogs
  5. I didn't see an attached plan, yet check what the materials are for the lights themselves in the item's settings. It's one of those things that started in the 2020 release where they didn't always default on, even with the setting be told to do so. When you open the materials, go to the "bulb" and make sure it's set with "lighting white" or whichever one you want to use. When it's been changed, it should then show.
  6. Depending on which version you have, you most likely can't. That was something that was changed, possibly in error, over the last couple of editions. It's one of those things that is irritating, yet will require a programming fix rather than a user fix. That is my opinion on it. Hopefully that is something on their fix list for the 2022 versions.
  7. Try the core catalogs under millwork>columns>stacked. You might find one there that will work, maybe the "stacked round?"
  8. Look in the "Bonus Catalogs" which are available for purchase under Library>Get additional Content online" for porch millwork. They may be in other places too, such as columns
  9. You may be able to adjust it in a section view. Find the high spot, highlight that wall and then take the edit handle and drag it down until it's even with the floor where you want it to be.
  10. I am using Pro 21 and discovered a way to create a label. Go to your window and under "label" go to specify label. Then in the label box, enter %width%x%height%SH (the SH is for single hung, though you could change it for the type of window it is. It should display as 36"x60"SH. Hopefully it will work in your version
  11. As each camera view type has items that can be turned on or off, check to see if exterior furniture or fixtures is turned on for that view.

    Changing sidings

    Yes, very simple. Create a new wall type that has the siding you want. Then change just the gable walls to the new wall type in plan view on your attic level. As a side note, since it's a gable wall, you may not want the drywall on the inside, so delete that as well while you're creating the new wall. Then when you draw your section view, it will show studding and not drywall inside.
  13. If you look at it closer, you'll see a gap in framing over your bay window. What you will need for an engineer to review it is the roof framing materials (rafter materials, ridge material, collar ties, etc.) called out on a roof framing plan.A 3D picture of "sticks" will honestly do nothing for them. They need to know the spans, etc., which this doesn't show. If you are going to be using roof trusses, the truss manufacturer will have their engineers calculate and design the truss layout and specs so it WILL support the roof. Plus they can often supply the stamped engineering that the building inspectors will want to show the structure is sound.
  14. Open the terrain building option box, look for terrain hole and draw that around the 1st floor walls, except where the cantilever is. Line it up to the outside of the foundation walls. Then go to the terrain and uncheck "hide terrain intersected by building." You'll want to have auto-build terrain on. It's one of those things in the program that makes no sense, yet that is the way I use to fix it. It will happen with most any projection except decks.
