    double rake window

    I believe in Pro that you can set the angle of certain shapes to match the roof pitch.

    Clear terrain data

    When you open your terrain settings, read how it says "Subfloor height above terrain." What I think you've done is by setting it to -42 you have actually raised it up 42" from the floor, which is where the hill is coming into being
  3. Eric, thank you for this. What a time saver for when these projects come along.

    Help With Shapes

    There is also a bonus catalog available for purchase that has some items similar as well.

    Cross section insulation fill

    Look at the "Rectangular Polyline" drop down box. As was mentioned to you before, the reference manual is great to use so you aren't losing time waiting for someone to answer a question when the answer can be found easily.

    Detail's Download

    I keep my default section detail notes on a word document. Then I copy and paste into a text box and modify as needed for the client and/or the project.

    Limit Tile Back-splash

    Go to your cabinet defaults. Under wall cabinet, check the box marked "backsplash to base below." Set your thickness and the material you wish it to be. For the areas where there isn't a wall cabinet, use a soffit to fill in those gaps. Painting will just paint a whole wall, as you've found.

    Window size labels for stacked windows

    The original poster said they used black lines, so I was following what he said.

    Window size labels for stacked windows

    You don't even need to put in black lines. Just hit the "enter" key a couple of times and it will add spaces to move the call size

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    It sure looks connected in your post. You do realize that you need to do that procedure to the 2nd floor wall, since that's the one that is being intersected?

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    Go to the wall specification. Open it up. Go to the "roof" section. At the very bottom is a box that says "Lower wall type if split by Butting roof". Check that, change the lower type to an interior or whatever you want and that should fix it. Your manual is also a great place to look for this stuff.

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    You can tell it to change the wall type below the roof to whatever you need it to be. The 2nd picture in your post looks like it's facing into the lower room and the siding is the 2nd floor exterior wall.

    "Outside" walls on "indoor" surfaces

    You can try to go to your wall, open the "roof" dbx, then look at the bottom where you can change what the wall type is under a roof.

    3d painter and ceilings

    Change the ceiling material to whatever it is you want it to be . . . if Suite lets you do that. You'll find it in the DBX for "Floors & Rooms".

    window label location

    If you aren't going to change the window size, you can open the label and put a couple of "enter" taps in before it and it will move below the window if that helps. If you change the size, the label won't change, so be careful if you use this.

    Changing porch beam size?

    You'll find some nice improvements on the deck tools in 2021.

    Changing porch beam size?

    That option was not available in HDP 2020. It came out in 2021.

    When you move the wall, is it still connected to another wall to close the area up? If there's an open wall connection, it won't tally the footage.

    Internal Vaulted Ceiling Rafters ?

    I don't know if Suite has the ability, yet maybe you could open up your roof framing view, copy a rafter from each side and move them down along the "Z" axis to get them to the level you want. Then "transform/replicate" along the X or Y axis @ 16" oc to make them all show?

    Floor & Ceiling Structures

    if you click on the terrain, you will see it probably has "hide terrain intersected by building" checked. Uncheck that and it should go away. What you can then do is go to the 1st floor plan, go to the terrain drop box, find "terrain hole" and draw that to the outside of the framing in the walls. It's something that's been happening over the last few releases and frankly, it becomes annoying. Yet at least there is a simple work around. You'll see it with cantilevers, etc. too.

    Unwanted Framing in Layout sheet

    It's happened to me before too. It just shows up sometimes in a blue color on the layout sheet. No big deal, just delete the view and carry on.

    You can also go to Marvin's website and download the catalogs for HD pro

    The mystery of joists offset from wall plane

    Something else that may help you going forward is to change your wall definitions. Looking at the "colors" of the framing, I am guessing your walls are framed with material "2x4 @16" oc?" If you change it to "fir framing", ,you will get the same color as the lumber in your joists. Don't know if that has anything to do with your walls being off, yet that "pasty" material won't show up as studs in section views. Just a thought.

    Rafter Birdsmouths - odd behaviour

    From that picture, it almost looks like your rafters are perpendicular to the gable wall and not parallel with it?

    Overlapping Walls

    Make sure the wall framing is aligned. See if there is a difference between the wall you want on the right versus the left one. Or even try reading through your reference manual under walls. Don't type in things like "overlapping", just look for walls.
