Hi there!

 

I love this software. I was wondering if there is a way to create a new default set that you can choose on startup? We have the list with default, American Casual, etc and I am wondering if I set up new defaults on a plan I am building if I can save those setting to be added to that initial list so I can then use those defaults in a new plan without having to set them all up again. I have Home Design Architectural 2021. 

 

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.

What you do is create the new template. Then when you start a new plan using that template, hit "save as" first and then rename it. That way your master stays the same and you can change your defaults for the new plan without it changing anything in your master.

Depending on what type of work you do, you may want to look at upgrading to Pro before you get too many master created. If you design with complicated roofs, want the ability to change floor framing materials defaults, use arched windows, etc., you'll find it's worth it in the long run with the added flexibility of design.

Thanks. Keep in mind that most content is for Chief, some of it works for Pro, and a subset of that works for Architectural and Suite.
