Limit width of cross section elevation

Recommended Posts

I wish to see a wall elevation of kitchen cabinets. However, if I select "Wall Elevation" from the menu, I cannot add dimensions to it.

 

If I select "Cross Section/Elevation" from the menu, I can add dimensions, but the section line carries with it the entire structure. I wish to see only the part of the elevation that relates to the kitchen cabinets.

 

I could probably print the file to a PDF and then use an external editor to blank out the parts I do not want to see, but I was hoping this can be done within HD Pro.

It's common, even using Chief, to use CAD to mask what you don't want to see.

 

Draw whatever shape is needed, set the fill to solid.

Duh. That is what I was going to do in the PDF editor, but this is a better idea. Thanx again.

In Home Designer Pro you can adjust the sides and top of a view sent to layout using the provided handles of the view on layout, no CAD mask is required, you show what you want to show on layout.

Thank you DJP, I tried that and it cropped the view just as I needed it.
