Layout Templates Library

Recommended Posts

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) 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.

Home Designer Pro 2020 is what I'm using.


I'm obviously a new user and I was wondering if there were layout templates available for the varying drawing sets.  I realize the customization feature is available and what I was specifically seeking was if there were download-able sets for framing, hvac, room elevations, etc.

Pro has plan files and layout files, and both use templates.


Are you asking about a layout template? (some refer to a plan as a layout, but in Pro they mean different things)


I'm not understanding "download-able sets for framing, hvac, room elevations, etc.".


Taking framing as an example, what would you expect to find in a template?


How would you make use of a framing template?

My newness is showing, I get it.  


I'm understanding the program a bit better after some tutorials and know what I need to do.  There are no default 3D views (which I mistakenly assumed), each needs to be created individually and placed in the layout for printing.  I was so geeked out with all the great features that I just assumed that this would be one.  I realize now that the trick is camera views and back camera views for what I am trying to accomplish.  Thanks for the assistance and patient guidance.

The YouTube channel linked above has some good hour long getting started videos for Home Designer using Pro.


Might be worth a look -- I know they helped me when I was getting started.
