    brick ledge

    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.

    How to place pocket door vertically in the wall?

    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.

    Custom Backsplash Tool Bar

    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.

    Riddle me this - Angles and Dangles ?

    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.

    Pantry door disguised as a cabinet

    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.

    Exposed Rafter tails

    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

    Exposed Rafter tails

    This is one way to do it and there might be others but I found this to be easy and quick

    Is Living Area Calculated Incorrectly?

    edit/default settings/plan/edit can now change between main layer or outer surface
  12. forgot to mention that auto framing needs to be disabled before adding the stud
  13. you can easily add an additional stud by copying a stud and then grab it and move it into place. Transform/replicate (copy) works well also and just move the copy. The copy paste function does seem to give the error described above

    Can no longer click individual rooms, Help!

    check your walls and insure they are connected to form a room. if there is a gap between walls all the rooms will select instead of one. You can see this by creating a new simple plan with two rooms and move the dividing room away from the connecting wall. Now when you select one room they both select. connect the wall and only one room will select. Maybe this is it. ??
