Is there a way to change a regular exterior wall to a Pony wall or do I have to delete it and replace it with a pony wall and the add all the electrical, windows, doors, etc back in again? I have Home Designer Architectural X11 / 2020. I have a complete plan drawn up but decided that I want to make the exterior wall half brick and half siding! When i click on exterior wall there is no option to chaange it to a pony wall that I can see.

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that 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.

Hmmm, not super helpful.

I haven't found an option either. Replacing the wall wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for all the windows/doors etc that I've also got attached to the wall. I can see that for the most part it really just comes down to the "components" of the wall, but so far I haven't been successful in copying those across walls either. This is a bummer. I'll report back if I somehow stumble onto a solution.

 

This is my first post here on these forums—is there any representation from CA officials? If so, maybe someone will chime in, although I'm not hopeful, as it's been over a year.

Pro has pony walls included in the 'drop down' wall menu, making it easy to change wall types.

Architectural does not (kind of silly that it's not included).  At least I don't think it has been added to the new version.

 

To make it easier to change to a pony wall, FIRST hold down the control key and multi-select every door/window in the wall and copy.

Delete the wall and draw in the new pony wall.

"Paste in Place"  the doors/windows that were copied.

 

This forum offers help from users, like yourself.  Rarely is there any comment from Home Designer moderators.

And like Eric said, it is best to start a new thread.

Why does anyone need to start a new thread? I was contributing my experience to OPs question. Scattering a forum with 100 of the same question is a great way to proliferate the disorganization of information. This is fine :)
