Roof framing not showing in HD Pro 2021


Recommended Posts

I, for the life of me, can not figure out why I can not get the roof framing to show when I click on either "orthographic framing" or "perspective framing", all I see (as shown) is the completed roof with shingles. What am I missing here ? 


I am having a beast of a time searching for my error . . . or misconfiguration setting somewhere ?  


I am using Home Designer Pro 2021 running Windows 10 


thank you !

In Suite and Architectural, framing is automatically produced and is NOT manually editable. In HD Pro, unless you have ordered framing to be built, automatically or otherwise, then no framing with be in evidence until you cause it to exist. Also in your shared image, roof planes layer is obviously ON and can easily be turned off in the "Display Options" dialog for that camera type.

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.






Many questions have been asked and answered. The Home Designer website is a good place to start your search.


Here is a video about searching the forum:
