Storing Material Prices

How do you save material prices so that they populate the material list without have to re-enter prices every time you generate a material list?  If I enter in prices it calculates everything, but then the next time I run a material list all the prices are gone.  Where can you enter material prices so that they are saved?  There must be a way otherwise the price feature is pretty worthless. 

 

I'm just running the basic Home Designer Suite, maybe the more advanced versions allow you to store pricing information but this one doesn't?

 

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.

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: https://youtu.be/dDT6wbrrVRM

Suite is limited in many ways, and I believe this is one of them. I see no way to save pricing.

You do have the option to export the materials list, so it's possible to create a utility to do this if you have or develop the ability to do so.
