I do not have a custom backsplash tool?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have the 2019 home designer version.  I noticed every video I watch on custom backsplashes, there is a custom backsplash tool.  I've looked everywhere, under cabinets, tools. I do not have a custom backsplash tool.  How do I create a custom backsplash without that tool?

What Home Designer version?

 

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) 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 keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Videos are always done with Pro, which has all available tools.

 

You might try a thin Soffit.

I just checked in Architectural, Pro, and Suite, none have a custom backsplash tool. That is a feature of Chief Architect Premier only. Take Eric's advice and use a thin soffit placing your backsplash material on it. Training Videos are all marked as to what versions and titles they apply to whether at the Home Designer or Chief Architect Websites.

Check again David ;)

 

Architectural and Pro both have the Custom Backsplash tool.

Well, Eric, you are right. What I saw is that the tool is greyed out unless you are in an elevation camera mode in both Architectural and Pro, I can see how that makes sense since it can only be used in an elevation camera view. My bad, I should have looked harder. In plan view mode the tool is greyed out to a point where I could not see it clearly. Thanks for making me look again!

Thanks guys! I used the softfit.  While not great, it works for what I'm using this program for.  Appreciate the help!
