Electrical Defaults


Recommended Posts

I have Home Designer Suite 2019. Error Message: Couldn't find electrical objects in the electrical library.


I have an old plan from 3D Home Architect 4 (very old). It is so old that the library files can't be imported as far as I know.


Help says to Edit Electrical Defaults but Electrical is not listed in the defaults list so this is not possible. How can I remove obsolete electrical information from a very old plan or replace it with current defaults?

I looked in my copy of Suite 2019 and could not find "Electrical Defaults" either. I am just guessing that Suite does not have "Electrical Defaults" like Home Designer Pro and Premier does. It may be that you were reading something intended for Pro and not for Suite.


I do know what you are speaking of in terms of legacy plans symbols. What you can do is to open the dialog box of an electrical object and if you do not see an image of the object in its own dialog, you can then be sure it is one of the objects the software is complaining of. Then delete the offending object and replace it with one from your "Library Browser". Having to check each electrical object may be tedious but that method will work to eliminate the error message, once you have found them all.

Also ...


I see you said, but 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.
