Converting ceiling mount object to wall mount?

Recommended Posts

Hi! 


 


Thanks for the excellent forum, first off. It's been amazingly helpful to read your questions and answers as I learn to use HD Suite.


 


I've found a ceiling mount light fixture symbol online that I like a lot. It's a flush light strip.


 


I want the same as a wall mount too (above my vanity) but can't find a symbol like that so far online.


 


Is there an easy way to move or convert a 'ceiling mount' lighting object to a 'wall mount?'


 


I've tried the usual suspects but just dragging and command-dragging still seems to retain the sort of 'snap to ceiling' property of the original light.


 


Any help would be much appreciated!

Tell us about the light you are using. Where did it come from?

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) 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.

You will have to rotate the symbol in Sketchup and then reimport it, when repaired in Sketchup into your Home Designer software. Sketchup is free to download and rather easy to learn though set up differently from Home Designer.
