Exporting/Saving in Home Designer Pro2022 for Opening in Chief ArchitectX12

Hello.  First time user, so forgive me if I've not followed proper protocols.

 

I recently purchased Home Designer Pro-2022 in an effort to create plans for a remodel of a neighbors house. 

 

I created an existing floor plan and a proposed floor plan, which I've saved and gave to the architect, which will be taking my plans, reviewing them, correcting them where necessary and then submitting them to the city. 

 

I took my Home Designer Pro-2022 (23.4.1.8x64) files to the architect, but he could not open them.  He is running Chief Architect X12.

 

Is there a way for me to export/save my files from Home Designer Pro-2022, so that he can open them in Chief Architect X12? 

 

Your recommendations are appreciated.

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.

Your architect should understand the problem.

Not really. Give him a PDF of the plan and he can quickly redraw.

Eric:

 

Thanks for the prompt reply.  I've gone ahead and changed my signature.  I tried before, but couldn't find exactly where to do so.  Your screen print helped. Thanks.

 

I'm a bit surprised by your answer --  I would have thought that Chief Architect Premier X12, would have been able to open/edit the plans I created in Home Designer Pro 2022.

 

I will pass on the info you provided to him.

 

Thanks.

Pro 2022 is comparable to X13, and none of the Chief Architect/Home Designer products are able to open newer version plans.

 

 

Understood.  Thanks again.
