Clarification RE: Default Text Styles

Recommended Posts

The Edit> Default Settings > Text Styles option is not available in the Home Designer Essentials 2015. The font and size for all labels generated through the program has to be adjusted through each label individually.   :huh:

 
Can someone please clarify which versions of Home Designer include the option to set default Text Styles for labels etc.
 
Thank you in advance.

Thank you Mick,

 

I have contacted support regarding this.

 

From the Knowledge Base article KB-00504 it looks like the font options should be available in all versions except for Essentials and the Product Matrix is not very clear about this.

 

Essentials does not have Font settings under the Preferences > Appearance.

I opened my copies of Suite 2915, Architectural and Pro all of which have the ability to set text fonts as the end user chooses.

I have pro n I can set my fonts n sizes but avoid Century as a font style when I open on my program on my new computer it does not like it even though I have every font under the sun.

I have Pro 10 and it is too old for Text Styles , strange that the Product Matrix says you don't have the ability but the KB articles says you do , unless you have Essentials as noted, might be worth the upgrade to Suite then.

strange that the Product Matrix says you don't have the ability but the KB articles says you do.

If you look at the article, it does have information on how to turn off the display of labels, which would apply to Essentials, but the latter portion of the article has a notebox that adjusting the text style doesn't apply to the Essentials version.

Thank you all for your input.

Chief Architect Technical Support just confirmed that Home Designer Interiors, Suite, Architectural, and Pro versions all have the ability to edit default Text Styles. Home Designer Essentials is the only version that does not.
 
Pretty odd choice to limit any program in this manner considering the many features to choose from.
