Creating Decks

Recommended Posts

Hi Jo Ann,

I faked it just as you said. Inserted columns in place of the posts and foundations that did not generate. Thanks heaps, You saved "My Bacon"!.I've loaded the result and you may wish to see my faking

To SOLVER Thanks for your efforts and I will report the problem via a ticket. I need to fix my inability to change my signature from Pro to Suite anyway. They may shed some light on the problem

Paul Menke.

 

Happy new year to you and the Forum members from 'Downunder',

Cheers,

Claude

Looks good...but you still have some tweaking to do.   Your deck floor has carpeting.  :)

Your pool is partially not showing, and you still need a driveway surface.

 

Post back with info from tech support.  It has to be something you did in that particular plan.

 

Signature:  After you login, click on your name (upper right screen).   Choose settings / signature.

 

Happy New Year!

I did an edit area copy/paste into a new plan, and it fixed the problem ( a deck built correctly). 

 
You said that you WERE able to copy/paste level 1  into a new plan.  Did you try to build a deck in that new plan?


In the new plan (with level 1 already copy/pasted), choose to build new floor/blank plan. 
Go back to the original plan, and go to level 2.   Use edit area again and copy.
Go back to the new plan (you should be on level 2 blank floor),  and select paste hold position.  

This should now give you the complete house, and you can draw a real deck instead of having to fake it.

You are correct, the plan needs finishing off but I wanted to show you that I took your advice.

Regarding changing the signature, my name does not appear on the screen. So I cannot change anything. Hence the need to get support to correct how I am registered,

Thanks again guys and I will post any comments from support as to why I experienced problems on that plan,

Cheers,

Claude
