Recommended Posts

How can I edit an imported light object from a manufacturer to be used as an electrical object in Home Designer Architectural 2019?

I see you said Architectural, 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 below for how to turn them on, then 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.

You cannot do this in Home Designer.

 

Why do you want to?

I would like to have a similar control of lighting (on/off) with imported lighting objects as exist in the Home Designer library. Just a nice to have capability.

Make it a suggestion if you like. Light fixtures made by Chief Architect Inc can be so controlled but 3rd party objects do not contain the proper pre-programming necessary to have the control you want in the symbol itself. You can add light sources and align them with a third party symbol and have the same appearance.
