    Adjacent pony walls

    One thing that helps, is to use Manual Dimension for locating the break wall line. After changing the pony wall height, the Manual Dimension defines the break wall location. It would be good if Chief Architect fixed this ... did not erase the break wall line with adjacent pony walls. The attachment shows a concrete step wall that is not rare.

    Adjacent pony walls

    Home Designer Pro 2017 I am attempting to have step down concrete sections using break wall / pony walls ... see "Step concrete front.jpg" attachment. I can split the wall into multiple segments. However when I set the segments to different pony wall heights, the break wall lines disappear ... see "Step concrete top.jpg" attachment. Also, when I attempt to move the break wall line closer to the corner, it snaps to the corner. The .plan is attached. Please advise. Also, is there a way to disable the auto rebuild wall? Thanks!

  3. Solver, I tried your suggestion ... does not work. Is there another way to put in a cathedral ceiling, other than soffit? The roof pitch is 6" ... the ceiling pitch is 4.55".
  4. Unfortunately, unless I'm missing something, I wanted Home Designer to identify the locations of the angles. It seems that if I draw custom ceiling planes, it will be based on what I think ... which may not be accurate.
  5. I found a better photo ... see attachment.
  6. This is one room. The angle extends into the room about 7 feet. The photos I have, see attachments, show one end and the other end. Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of the entire angle.
  7. Home Designer Pro 2017 I have a cathedral ceiling ... 8' outside wall ... 12' inside wall. There is a window above 8' on the outside wall ... see attachments. How do I cut into the outside wall (V shape)? ... see attachment. House 160426 11 no interior no garage cathedral.plan
  8. I'm preparing dwgs for a concrete company ... want to ensure they pour the footings in the correct locations. Found a workaround using an invisible wall. Thanks!
  9. I did not realize the "Arch Panel" was a continuation of #5. I was looking for the pattern in #5. This sequence works: Arch -> Tudor Arch -> Full Arch -> Height ... General -> General Height.
  10. How do I create a window with a triangular top section? Help -> Launch Help -> Windows -> Shapes -> Shape Panel ... I know how to create #4. How do I create B under #5? ... see attachment.
  11. I have footings for basement stairway walls. When I add a wall / door under the stairs, footings become shorter ... see attachments.
  12. Now I understand. I select a color from the core catalogs, then place that color on the siding. Thanks.
  13. I should have clarified. I am able to change to different colors ... but the lap siding images disappear.
  14. Pro 2017 Is there a way to expand the siding color choices? For example from blue to a very dark gray ... or black?
  15. Unfortunately, I can't "Mark Solved" for all of you.
