Getting Started With HomeTalk


Recommended Posts




Please start by reading over the official guidelines.


And the official how to get good answers guide.


The forum is divided into sections. Questions generally go in Q&A.


Tip: Notice the post count for Q&A. That shows where most of the activity is and is a good indication that is where you should post too (on any forum), unless your question/suggestion or other clearly fits elsewhere. If unsure, simply browse the section and review the activity.





What follows are simply my suggestions. I'm not a moderator, just a helper.





Knowing what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using is key to providing the best response. Something like Pro 2023, or Architectural 2018 is all that's needed. Since this is the Home Designer forum, no need to include that, or anything about Chief Architect.


Please don't comment saying you included that info in your post, and please do not make another comment saying what you have, instead, place this info in your Signature so it's always available by clicking on your user name (or the 3 bars) 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 as it searches there (Articles and Videos) as well as the forum.


Here is a video about searching the forum (shows ChiefTalk but works the same here):


It's often helpful to quote parts of a comment so others understand what you are referring to in your response.

Here is a video about doing that:

The built in Help System (always a good place to start)
