Site Plan for Permit

   I am using Home Designer Pro 2021 to submit drawings for a building permit,

My plan file can be found at

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1E8cEI147qmEkBl0m5213dYZYV7b-iD1D/view?usp=sharing

I've searched, but I haven't had much luck finding any information on how to assemble the drawing.

I apologize if this is obvious, but I couldn't find any tutorials or anything related to Home Designer.

I did find a tutorial for Chief Architect that was what I would like to do

https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/1930/creating-a-site-plan-or-plot-plan.html?playlist=101

, but wasn't sure if there was an equivalent set of features I could use in Home Designer.

I've been able to draw my house well enough for my purposes and I was able to import the survey information, but I am having trouble figuring out the layout tool.  It seems like the data I want is on different floors of the house, the survey is on floor 0, the North Facing arrow is on Floor 1, and the roof outline is on floor 2.

 

My goal is to have an end result like the below link.

Thank you very much,

Have you looked/tried?

You create the site plan in Plan, then send to Layout. What "layout tool" are you referring to?

Roofs may be moved. Select a roof plane and check the Edit Toolbar. I imagine you were on level 0 when you imported the survey. If it's an image or PDF, you may cut/paste elsewhere.
