  1. Thank you for your response Derek. I have been updating HD Pro every year since I purchased it in 2007. I love the program and look forward to every years' new version. I will be upgrading to the 2022 version soon. As a side note It would be great in the future to expand the number of layout pages in the HD series. Thanks again for your quick and informative reply Mark Bartholomew
  2. Physically Based Rendering was added 2 versions ago in the 2020 version. So unless the 2022 version has gone to Photo Realistic Ray Tracing I also don't know what is being offered in the new version. It would be nice to get more precise information of the improvements since the web site doesn't make the upgrade sound to desirable.
  3. I just tried it and it works exactly as DJP stated. Select the window you want to delete, select next and press delete and it removes the window. Worked perfectly

    I have often found info on how to do something on the chief architect site that I wasn't able to easily find on the home designer site. Since Pro is a lot like the chief software I see no harm in going there and I will continue to do so when needed. You should be able to get information, tips, and techniques from what ever source available. I understand you and David Potter are quite busy and have your hands full trying to answer all the questions that come into the site, and with that in mind I use what ever source I can to get an answer with out having to add one more question to your list. I thank you for what you do.

    go and in the search type brick ledge.
  7. you could use a pass-through, place a soffit into it and then for the visual of partial opening pull down the top of the soffit for appearance. Not great but it works.
  8. Custom backsplash can only be done in camera and elevation views. I don't know if you are trying to do it in plan view but you can't, only in camera and elevation views.
  9. select the hinge in the library and move it anywhere into your plan. Open the hinge and modify as needed. Move it into position on the door.hinge placed into plan from the library. Open and modify
  10. looks like if you view it in plan view you can rotate the cube around the Z axis and in 3D view you can rotate it around the X axis. Between the two you should be able to rotate it to where you want it.
  11. I'm not familiar with the Architectural version but fooling around with this in pro I was able to use a full height cabinet, place it in front of a doorway, remove the shelves, and replace the material of the cabinet to transparent glass and the inside cabinet color to transparent glass also remove the toe kick. This simulates the look that you are seeking. There are probably many ways to get this to look like you want it to. Just mess around with the cabinet options and you'll get something that looks right. Solver is right in that you cannot remove the back of the cabinet but making it transparent looks the same.
  12. The library has shapes that will work. Use the cylinder and resize as needed
  13. I had assumed that you had already built your roof framing. That needs to be done. In the Roof Plane Specification turn on the build roof framing
  14. This is one way to do it and there might be others but I found this to be easy and quick
  15. edit/default settings/plan/edit can now change between main layer or outer surface
