Drawing parallel to floor plan

Recommended Posts

Hi,

sorry when I ask here more or less the same once again but it is really urgent:

How can I make a construction drawing parallel to the default (I think default is the floor plan). 

I can create the floor plan of my deck. OK. But below the floor are e.g. posts and concrete footer. When I go one floor deeper the whole deck disappears including post and footer.

How can I make a construction drawing parallel to the default ???

I found a video tutorial: https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/342/placing-deck-posts-and-footings-on-a-module-over-a-terrain.html?playlist=94

and in 1:38 minutes they switch from floor 1 to floor 0 and as you can see in the attached image the post, footer, beams are visible 

Does it work only in Chief Architect. Is this a limitation of Home Designer Pro 2019 (Trail)???

What do I do wrong??

Is this what you want?

 

You need to turn on the display of the layers you want to see.

Thank you very much also for your time. Good to have you in this forum!!

 

Please, how could I give this deck Auto Dimensions? 

When I click in a room I get the option e.g. Auto Interior Dimension. 

When I'm in 1st floor I can also click in the deck area and get the option: Auto Interior Dimension.

But when I move to floor 0 then I can't activate the deck area and so I don't have the option Auto Interior Dimension.

How can I give it automatic dimensions?
