Story Pole

Recommended Posts

I am new to Home Designer Pro 2020 and would like to add "Story Pole" Dimensions to my exterior elevations but I do not see a tool for that.  Am I missing this feature or how can I add vertical exterior dimensions, preferably generated by the software?

I see you said Pro 2020 -- you can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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.

Under the "text" drop down box, use the "marker" setting. You can generate them at the levels you desire. If you know the dimensions between floors, etc. you can use the transform/replicate and move them along the Z axis at the distance needed. That will keep them aligned with each other. Then you can use the point to point dimension tool to draw your dimensions vertically and move them away from the markers as desired. Just a note is make sure you have changed the default dimension settings to read in the inch size that matches the plan so they show correctly for this part..
