A neat trick to create either Window or Door Schedule

 

1.       Finish Floor Plans

2.       Click Tools >> Material List

3.       Calculate Material List (Select Floors or All Floors)

4.       Open Material List Display Options

5.       Under Categories, select only Doors or Windows

6.       Under Columns, select on desired columns. Move up or down to desired location, MAKING SURE THE SELECTED BOXES ARE GROUPED TOGETHER ON THE TOP FOR EASY EDITING

7.       Highlight everything, go to Edit and Copy

8.       Go to Floor Plan View and Paste

9.       Open Object and Edit and remove unnecessary items

10.   Under Attributes, click on Display Border and Display Grid Lines or Alignment and centered if desired

11.   Continue Editing. To add Headers, place cursor above the column line and type your heading

12.   Once finished, tile vertically the Material List and Floor Plan to verify the count and location

13.   Click Edit >> Preferences >> Appearance >> Colors >> Selection Fill (select color which is easier to see on the plan)

That feature exists in Chief Premier and not in any Home Designer Products presently (2021 and earlier, I checked), sorry. In Home Designer products a Window schedule would have to be made manually. I suppose you might try the method spoken of above by frjram1359. I am spoiled by Chief Premier and use that most of the time.

I always use an excel spreadsheet with columns labeled. Type in the info and then copy/paste into a text block in the plan
