Wrapped Openings Issue

Recommended Posts

Using HDA 2015; Build 16.4.1; intel based pc.  From the Library Browser, selected Architectural, Doors & Doorways, Wrapped Openings, Ellipse (Trim) and places on an interior wall, (Interior 4).  Opening the camera, the doorway is an arch as it should be.  Opened the properties for the doorway, changed the width from 42" to 72" and the height from 80" to 84".  Again, opening the camera but now the wrapped opening is a standard square door opening.  What happened to the arch? 

 

Using the doorway properties dialog box, arch, puts a true semi circle arch and not an ellipse.  The prior version never did this.  Opening drawings completed for HDA 2015 are not effected when viewing by camera.  Only when a new wrapped opening is used.

 

Any suggestions?

I cannot reproduce using Pro 2015 or 2016. Resize in plan or camera view does not effect the arch.

 

To make it easier on you and us -- It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

I, too, wasn't able to reproduce the reported behavior in HD Pro 2015.  However, HD Archtectural 2015 has an Arch tab in the doorway specification dialog (as shown in the 2nd image in the original post).  You should be able to use the functionality on that tab to restore the arched opening - or apply other arch shapes as desired.

I did provide the product and version, first sentence. ( Home Designer Architect) HDA, (version) 2015 along with the build value.  As to using the door dialog box, arch, that setting puts a true semi-circle and not an ellipse. DJP, do you have any suggestions?

I was suggesting you add the info to your signature so you would not always need to include it with your question.

 

Having it in the signature makes it easy to find for me and the others here who are helping, and insures we don't have to look for it if you don't include it.

 

You may have found a bug. Consider reporting to tech support, especially if you can demonstrate a difference in behavior between 2 versions.

Yes please add your info to your Sig.  , see mine for a how to , there are 30 or more versions supported here, all with different capabilities. Thx.

 

Does HDA not allow you to change the Arch type in the DBX'S drop down  menu?  Perhaps that is only Pro?
