Brand New User

Greetings all!

 

I am a brand new user but not at all new to Cad software! I can't seem to figure out how to do the simplest things, the difficult things look easier to me than the basic get up and running. I have watched several of the videos but still seem to have the same problems. For instance, I want to change the lengths of walls or perimeter without dragging them. I would like to be able to just click on whatever the object is and type in a measurement. I am used to other design software giving me that option and I assume I can do that with this as well. The videos I have watched thus far are good but they seem to ignore the things I want to know. Any advice would be appreciated!!

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.

Don't try to make this into whatever software you are accustomed to. 

 

Suggest you start with the hour long Home Designer getting started webinars on YouTube.

Multiple ways to do that. What do you see when you select a wall?
