Porch half posts and vinyl siding outside corners (new user)


Recommended Posts

I am a new user for Home Designer Pro and began learning the software yesterday evening.  I have a couple of questions:

 

1. I would like to have a half post, instead of a full length post, in front of a window at the porch.  How can I change the full length post to be a half post?

2. How can I add outside corner trim (vinyl corners) to my exterior vinyl siding at each corner?

 

I have attached the plan.  Thanks to all who reply and assist!

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.

Open Help and search for corner.

You will need to place short columns manually.

Thank you Eric!  The corners were super simple.  Would you care to give me a couple of pointers or steer me in the right direction for placing short columns manually?
