problem creating loft

Recommended Posts

Hi! I just submitted the question below to tech support and thought I might also post it here. Just started learning how to use the program, so any general tips would be welcome. 


I am trying to create a loft. I have followed the quick start video https://www.homedesignersoftware.com/videos/watch/10138/home-designer-quick-start.html At about 27 minutes, she adds a stairwell automatically, then moves the railing on the second floor. As soon as she joins it to the wall, a large section of the second floor vanishes, creating a loft. But when I do that, it doesn't work, the floor remains. The only difference I can see is that I use a single straight railing to connect to the wall while she does this in two steps making a 90 degree turn. Also, I was unable to align the ascending railing with the extended railing to the 2nd floor wall.

Thanks,
Dan

Dan, although she doesn't mention in the video, You can select that area for specification and assign it as Open to Below.

Thanks. I'll try that. Is that how she did it, or are there other ways, too?
