A drawing that I have was developed (several years ago) using X6 Premier. On Friday I posted on ChiefTalk Forum if someone could update my X6 drawing to X12, which was done and sent back to me. I purchased and installed Home Designer Professional 2021 yesterday. Although the drawing opens up I cannot make changes.

 

I have spent about 6 hours on the internet. I have checked the locks for the various layers there are a few locks on for the roof.


 The following "allow for editing" was also checked by the person who sent me the X12 update drawing.  Any thoughts and or recommendations? 

 

Thanks very much

To allow editing in Home Designer

If a Chief Architect user wants to be able to send a Home Designer user a file, first check to make sure that the versions that both users have are compatible. If the versions are compatible, then, the Chief Architect user needs to allow for editing in the Home Designer programs before sending the file.

  1. Click Edit> Default Settings mail?url=https%3A%2F%2Fd2haqc5836ials.cloudfront.net%2Flive%2Fca_btn%2Fdefdlg.png%3F1578606448&t=1607892919&ymreqid=1c9a98e1-20b5-f8e9-2f87-25000b011b00&sig=9bD.tbbEKQwoNn34W6yNJQ--~D, and in the Default Settings dialog, click on Plan, then click the Edit button.

     
  2. In the General Plan Defaults dialog that displays, check the Allow Editing in Select Home Designer Products box.

    Check Allow Editing in Select Home Designer Products located in the General Plan Defaults dialog


     
  3. Click OK to accept the change then Done to close the Default Settings dialog.

*** I see you said Pro 2021 ***

 

 

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.

How do you know it was checked? I've never seen this not work.

 

Could you attach the plan file and I'll take a look.

I opened the plan and checked it for him as a courtesy.  I'm not sure why it's not working either and suggested he contact Tech Support.  Here's the plan for whatever it's worth...

I opened the plan you attached in Pro 2021 and was able to make all sorts of changes.
