Gabled end color

Recommended Posts

I am using Home Designer Suite 2017, and I am unable to change the color of the gabled end to the exterior color of the wall that the gable sits on.  Any suggestions?1689867518_gableend.thumb.png.b1ced5dbdb7ce051d1f79e395a021573.png

Open the dialog box for the wall you wish to change.

 

Then go to the Materials Tab of that wall's dialog box.

 

There you should find an input box for the exterior and interior of that selected wall.

 

You then change (select) the material of your choice for that wall

When I do that, it says that the material and color is already the same as the wall below, but the picture beside the writing showing the gable end is still a different color.

Please post your plan file for someone to look at. Close Suite first.

 

And ...

 

I see you said Suite 2017, but 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.

I noticed your roof overhangs are 1/4". The program likes them larger, like 2 or 3 inches.

 

Try that to see if the problem goes away, then reduce them.
