    Floor edit option not appearing

    Thanks much. I should have known that - I've been using it to change siding etc on the exteriors. I really appreciate your replying quickly.

    Floor edit option not appearing

    Hopefully a simple question. I've gotten through designing the floor plan, a lot of the exteriors, roofs etc in Home Designer Pro 2018 as a first time user, and have turned my attention to the interior. I started to edit the floor and ceiling materials using what I thought were the instructions provided - Go to the structure tab of the room specification dialog, find floor finish and click on the edit button. But there is no edit button for floors, and under structure it is just the underfloor specifications, not floor materials. Under ceiling, there is an edit option for finish, but when i click on it there is just a dialog for thickness, not materials. I googled and searched through home designer pro videos and Youtube videos, but can't find information as to where you can change floor and ceiling materials. I'm attaching a screen shot of the room specification dialog box. I am submitting this on what is labeled Home Designer Forums, but when I have done this in the past I have been lectured that this is Chief Architect forum and not Home Designer. This is the only forum I can find labeled Home Designer, with nothing about Chief Architect in any of the headings. Hopefully this is the right place.

    Turn off auto interior dimensions

    Ok, I found it. It's under Tools>Display Options>Dimensions, Automatic. I unchecked the box and that did it.

    Turn off auto interior dimensions

    Thanks for this. I looked for "Layer in Display Options" called "Auto Dimension" under both defaults and preferences and could not find them. I just don't know where what you are referring to is located. Dave
  5. I'm a new user to Chief Architect and am using 2017 Architectural. I was trying to dimension rooms using specific numbers rather than drawing and ran into difficulty finding any sort of dialogue box popping up once the room was selected. I went down finally and selected "Auto Interior Dimensions" for that room and got a whole bunch of different dimensions that just fill the room space. I now want to turn those off but clicking back on the Auto Interior Dimensions icon does not do that. I am running into a fair number of these kinds of things that seem like they should be intuitively simple, yet run into problems and spend a lot of time trying to decipher the software and how to use it.
