Hello, my issue: no matter which drawing sheet I chose it always defaults to 18" x 24", making difficult to export a plan unless it can fit in an 18x24 drawing sheet.

What I'm I doing doing wrong or not doing? Thank you.

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.

 Hello. Yes, I'm referencing Home designer Pro 21. It won't allow me to import onto a drawing sheet no bigger than what it appears to be a default of  22" x 17."  I can only import those images by reducing to 1/8" and only if the plan fits those parameters. Thank you.

IT is a mechanical tool, IT doesn't do or keep YOU from doing anything, unless it contains pre-programmed limitations. You, currently are the only sources of any limitations.

Yes, Sir, I agree with you, and even a dummy after repeatedly watching the same videos something will be retained. Last watched, among many, Layout set ups on Designer Pro 19. I am at Pro 21. I tried something different than video and got the largest sheet, but haven't been able to duplicate. There are about 4 steps involved but keeps reverting back to 17x22. Its important since I need to fit a lot 132.50 ft long.  Thank you for trying thought. Hopefully I can manage with this $500+ program.
