Layouts 101 Basics

  • Of the Home Designer programs, only Pro has layouts.
     
  • Go through the Layout Tutorial in the User's Guide.
     
  • Watch the Layouts training video.
     
  • Review the Layout Knowledge Base Articles such as . . .
    KB-00527: Creating a Layout
    KB-01829: Resizing a Layout Title Block and Border
    KB-00439: Creating a Cross Section Detail
     
  • Layouts in Home Designer Pro are limited to a single page, BUT you can create a new layout file for each individual page (OR you can upgrade to the Premier version that has multi-page layouts).
     
  • The max print size in Pro is Arch C (18" x 24"), BUT you can create a PDF with views at 1/8" scale on 11" x 17" and have a print shop double it to get 1/4" on a larger sheet (OR you can upgrade to the Premier version which doesn't have any print size limits and would let you print directly to Arch D 24" x 36").

I know I've seen it before but now I can't find it on the website again and this thread only shows the print size limit of Pro. Where are all of the different version page size limits listed?

They're in the Product Chooser on the website and this online Knowledge Base article.

Product Chooser (you have to scroll way down or just Control+F to search the page for Maximum Print Size).
