Cannot Draw Exterior Walls

Recommended Posts

I just purchased Home Designer Suite 2017. I thought it would make sense to test the software by drawing a simple wall.


I expected to (click) draw to draw some length of wall while viewing the length of the wall on the screen.


The 'draw' does not show any dimension. It is not retained on the screen. I use an iMac. I've tried a mouse click to start. Tried the command

key, the option key, control and shift. Nothing works.


Seems like the most basic possible start. What am I doing wrong. Is my installation bad?


Thank you

1) Please fill out your Signature -- see below.


2) See the YouTube videos linked below. Home Designer 2017 - Quick Start is a good one to begin with.


Click the Wall icon (or Build>Wall) to select your wall type, then click and drag to draw your wall.




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. Doing so makes it always available, and this info is often key to providing a good suggestion


Resources for self help:


The built in Help System (always a good place to start)
