    Adding Light to Imported Fixture

    Maybe take a geometric shape like a closed box, make it small, set the material to the light you want, then place it at the right spot in the fixture?

    Custom Ceiling Planes

    Ok, then it's the same process.

    Custom Ceiling Planes

    Depending on what Architectural can do, it may work to create a separate room for the slanted section using room dividers and change the material to what you want for the ceiling. When you get to the flat section, a custom shape or soffit of the color needed could be placed just below the ceiling to emulate the look you want..

    Showing finished basement framing cross section

    It probably depends on what wall type and material you used.

    Angled exterior wall for green house

    Might be able to draw it as a roof plane and use skylights to get the glass you want and move the framing out of the way? Just a thought, haven't tried it.

    Trees Cast Shadows

    There are bonus catalogs for 3D trees and shrubs for purchase that should help.

    reception area furniture

    Did you look at the bonus downloadable catalogs?

    Custom Deck Railings (Creating various types)

    HD Pro 2021 offers some customizable rails where you can adjust thickness and width. Nothing with a radius though. I can't remember if that was available in 2020 or not. Might be an upgrade that could work for you. Like Jo_Ann said, download the trial and see if that's different.

    Rafter sizes don't change

    Did you rebuild the roof?

    Setting up Arch D size Layout

    I don't think 24x36 D size paper printing ability showed up until HD Pro 2021

    Gravel under monolithic slab

    Use a rectangular poly line and make the "fill style" stone or gravel. You can adjust the size of it through the setting tab.

    making a wood pile

    There are some fire wood piles in some of the bonus catalog if you haven't checked there yet?

    Enclosing under a deck with a lattice

    I will go the deck framing plan, transform/replicate the rim joists the thickness they are. Then edit them to keep the height the same, change the thickness to 3/4" or 1/2", then close the gap between the new joists and the framing. Then you can transform/replicate on the "Z" axis, adjust the thickness again if you wish. Then make that item a lattice. From a side elevation, you can adjust that piece to the height you need. Depending on what catalogs you have, there is a diagonal lattice that works pretty good. Just adjust the material and texture properties down to a size opening you want. Then you can even paint the material white or whatever color you want it to be.

    beauty salon/spa

    Did you search the bonus catalogs? Go to Library>Get Additional Content Online and look there. Some will need to be purchased, yet there are quite a few catalogs to view and download. Maybe something there will work for you, or at least be representative of the fixtures you're looking for.

    Creating Default for Startup

    Depending on what type of work you do, you may want to look at upgrading to Pro before you get too many master created. If you design with complicated roofs, want the ability to change floor framing materials defaults, use arched windows, etc., you'll find it's worth it in the long run with the added flexibility of design.

    Creating Default for Startup

    What you do is create the new template. Then when you start a new plan using that template, hit "save as" first and then rename it. That way your master stays the same and you can change your defaults for the new plan without it changing anything in your master.

    Decorative Truss Visualization In Full Camera Views

    I imagine you could also make the plates and bolts from geometric shapes in the library so you can adjust sizes right in the program. Use the "Closed box" for the plate and "Horizontal cylinder" for the bolts.

    Tilt Out Cabinet Door

    Ah, ok. I couldn't remember which year it became available.

    Tilt Out Cabinet Door

    If it doesn't have to be hollowed out, could you possibly use an inverted wedge to simulate the door being open? Or look at the differences from Pro 2020 to Pro 2021. I believe there's an option now to show cabinets open or closed. A $200 investment might be easier to swallow than going to Chief.

    Roof Design

    You can also use a room divider and make it invisible so it doesn't show on the inside.

    Lighted Mirrors

    There is also a Bonus catalog you can purchase that is just lighted mirrors. One of them may serve your purpose too.Or post your plan so someone can see what settings you have on or off.

    Wall colors changed in 2d plan view

    Go to your default》wall types. Then open the wall you want, check the definition and change the color. It's something that was changed in the 2021 version

    Where to find "Bookcases"?

    Did you type in "Bookcase" in your library browser? There are some in there, and if you have downloaded the "Wayfair" bonus catalog you should find even more. And as Eric said, depending on what it looks like, you can start with a cabinet and modify it.

    Change Wall Type from Exterior to Interior

    One of the things that happened in Pro 21 is that the terrain will not build under items that overhang the ground. Such as bump out fireplaces, bay windows, etc. What you do in those cases is go to Terrain>Terrain hole and draw a hole around the 1st floor area that you don't want grass in. Just draw it to the foundation line, not the framing. Then uncheck" hide terrain intersected by building" and that will get the grade to hit your foundation. It may not be the fix for this situation, yet probably something to keep in mind as you do more plans.

    Stud only wall

    Change the material to fir framing, check the materials to make sure it's fir framing. Then back out of the view, then go back in
