Auto dimensions only showing on one building in the same plan


Recommended Posts

I am using Home Designer Pro 2021. I have drawn the main house and have added a new outbuilding next to it. When I toggle the auto dimensions back on, it only shows the dimensions of the main house. I need the dimensions of the new building to show and they don't. I added an image of what I see when the auto dimensions are on.

Nevermind. I found the answer. I highlighted the rooms in the outbuilding and then went to the dimension tool to turn on auto exterior dimensions. Now I need to figure out if I can turn off the dimensions on the main house so that the dimensions on the outbuilding can be read and not overlap.

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.
