How to save a New Custom Wall Type

I've been working a set of plans for a Net Zero home.  I created a new wall type and saved it.  When I went to start a second Net Zero floorplan my new wall type doesn't show, although it is still there when I go back and open up the first plan.  Is there a way to save it so I don't have to recreate it for every new project?  Cheers, Bob

There is no need to recreate the wall.
Open the plan where the wall exists. Copy/paste the wall into the new plan.
When the new plan is saved, then opened, the new wall will be there in the drop-down wall list.

You can save it this easy way if you create a template plan, too.
I have saved a lot of wall types this way  ( that I want to have available in the wall drop-down list)   without having to recreate them.

Thanks Eric.  I went a one of your video's and followed the process, but get the message below when I tried to save it.  Is this no an option with "pro", or did I misunderstand a step?

Cheers, Bob

The directory you are writing to is probably protected -- marked Read Only or similar. Remove that and you should be OK.
