Possibly a silly question but is it possible to copy and paste an entire or section of a room and it's contents? Example...When viewing two plans in tile view, I would like to copy a kitchen area from one plan to the other after deleting one kitchen to provide space for the copy.

I've tried highlighting an area of a room to no avail. Also tried to copy an entire room but left click doesn't present a copy/paste option. Thought there might be a little known trick.

Signature contains Home Designer 2018.

I've done this by selecting everything I can in one go by using the Shift Key and the mouse to select multiple items.  I copied a kitchen - cabinets, appliances, everything - but it did take me some time because I couldn't select all the items at once.  Hope this helps!

RobinD, did you ever have any success copying an entire room from one file to another?  I am using Home Designer Architectural 2019 and haven’t figured out how to do this yet.  Any help would be appreciated.

I should have said that I tried to use the Edit Area tool, but it didn't work.

 

What didn't work?

 

And what exactly are you trying to do?

 

I just tested selecting multiple objects, copy/paste into a new plan. Also using Edit Area works.

 

You can create an Architectural Block and copy/paste it, or even add it to your library for reuse.
