  1. JoAnn and Mick thank you very much! JoAnn I just downloaded the file and hopefully will get a chance to look at it tonight, Mick if you posted a file it isn't showing up. I am learning quite a lot very fast with this newer version, with all the videos and help from the forum I am excited to get this all figured out. I'll update with the results as soon as I get a chance. thanks again tim
  2. Well I am watching the video and cannot get the break line tool active, in the attached image you can see it is not an option in the editor toolbar, tried the hotkey 3 as well. Hmmmm Tried with the pony wall and got the proper wall coverings but were unable to add handles to angle it so it fit the roof plane. When I just create a polyline shape with CAD I get the break line tool, but not by clicking on any of the walls, I even put a wall outside the house and clicked all over it.
  3. HDA only has the options in the attached image. David I had to take a break but I am now back watching your video and trying to figure this out. tim
  4. I have a Story and a Half Styled house with the Master Bathroom Upstairs protruding out the roof. The walls of the bath are exterior walls in one place and interior walls as they penetrate the roof. As you can see from the photos, how do I split them and get it to show the proper sheetrock on the interior and siding on the exterior since the penetrate the roof at an angle.
  5. David you are a life saver! I have fretted with this for over 5 hrs and it was that
  6. Oh wow David, thank you for a quick response at such a late hour. You have renewed my energy so I will give that a try, may not get to sleep tonight at all. thank you tim
  7. I have attached a labeled version of the second floor that may help as well, you can see the stairs, I have a large beam that forms support for the second floor where it overlooks the living area. The upper landing and sitting area has railing shown in green.
  8. I am at this moment quite brain dead from watching videos and reading to try and find out how to solve my problem. I did figure out how to do this in HD 7 but lost all the files due to a hard drive failure. I just upgraded to Architect and am in the process of starting this all over. My house is a steep roofed A frame style, but the roof begins at the top of the first floor (not close to the ground like some A frames). The pitch is like 12" in 12". The house has a crawlspace withe a garage added later that sits on a slab. On the first floor the area over the living room is a cathedral ceiling, the hall located between the storage and living room is actually going to be stairs to the second level. The stairs begin in the hall and go to a landing at the exterior wall then turn 180 deg and go up to the second floor. This area is left open with a railing and view down to the living area. To the right is the door to the master bedroom. Entering the master bedroom the bath is to the right, then to the left is a small hall to a walk in closet above the garage. The problem i am having is that I cannot define the rooms on the second floor, every time I attempt to add a wall, invisible wall, anything it totally screws up the roof. The roof is almost 95% exact as it appears on the house right now. As you can tell I have no floors on the second floor except for the bath which I was able to define without screwing up the roof. I even downloaded some samples and tried to figure out what they did but have been unsuccessful. Any help will be appreciated, thanks in advance! Tim
