Changing the ceiling height in one room is changing it on the whole floor


Recommended Posts

I have Home Designer Pro 2022. On a 2-story building, I tried to lower the ceiling height of one of the rooms on the 1st floor. It automatically applies the change to every room on that floor. It also won't let me change the ceiling height without affecting the floor above. How can I do this? Thanks for the help!

*** I see you said Pro 2022 ***



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.

Are you wanting a dropped ceiling in a single room? That is the 2nd floor does not move down, and a lowered ceiling is framed in the room below.


You can use a Shelf Ceiling. Open the room, check Shelf Ceiling, then adjust the ceiling height.
