New to Home Designer—issues with sizing windows and positioning where I want them

Recommended Posts

I'm just getting started with Home Designer and I'm running into a few snags. When I place a window on a wall and then try to resize it, instead of just moving on one side, both sides go in or out at the same time. I can't seem to place it in a specific position (ie. 36" from a wall) and then size it from the other side. I wonder if something in my Settings or Defaults is set wrong or it this how the program works and I just don't know enough? I'd appreciate any suggestions on what I may be doing incorrectly.

Thanks,

Leila

Open the window specification box and set the window to the size you want it to be, then click on the window and move it to

where you want it to be. If you're using Windows, hold down the control key.

After you have resized the window, select it.

The distance between the window and the wall should be displayed.

Click on this distance, and the distance will be highlighted and in a box.

Enter the exact distance that you want, and your window will move.

After placing a window, if you click it near the inside of the house, temporary dimensions will show on the interior, click closer to the exterior, and dimensions show on the exterior.

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 Account Settings, then Signature on the left.
