  1. Hello, Do you happen to have X10 installed on the machine you're sending the plans to? There is a likely chance that the *.plan and *.layout file extensions are associated with that older X10 version instead of X12. You might try following the steps in this article to resolve the problem:

    Screen capture materials tool

    Hi Ronniesha, This behavior presents itself when Chief Architect doesn't have proper permission to record/capture the screen. This can be resolved by following the steps below: Close Chief Architect. Click on the Apple icon in the top left corner and select System Preferences. Select the Security & Privacy category On the next screen, click on the Privacy tab at the top. On the left side, scroll down and click on the Screen Recording option. Place a check in the box next to the Chief Architect program. NOTE: If this section is grayed out, you may have to select the padlock icon in the bottom left corner and enter your Apple account credentials to make modifications. I hope this helps.

  5. Room Planner is only compatible on Apple and Android mobile devices. You're correct, Room Planner files can be saved to the cloud and then imported into a Home Designer/Chief Architect Mac/PC product. Home Designer/Chief Architect files cannot be imported into Room Planner however.

    How do I create a pool and outdoor patio?

    Is this in relation to the Room Planner mobile application or the Home Designer Professional desktop software we offer? Room Planner is intended for designing the interior of a room or area. It's not meant for exterior/landscape design. If you are using Home Designer Professional, then landscape tools are available, along with several options to create in-ground and above ground pools.

    Hello, Did you have the free app on your other device when you initially purchased the items? If so, you should be able to restore any purchases you made by going to Settings (Cog Wheel) > Purchases > Restore Purchases.

    Importing to X8

    You are correct Susan. Walls and openings (Doors and windows) are the only items that are imported into Chief Architect from a Room Planner file.
