    Creating shutters

    Has anyone ever created a new shutter type other than the ones in the window dbx pull downs? If so how did you create it? I need some that have raised panels similar to raised panel door. "Inquiring minds want to know."
  2. Does anyone know how I could change my railings to walls on my winder landings? 17-287 Smith.plan

    Help alinging walls and/or dimension?

    Can anyone help or tell me why my wall dimensions are not the same from foundation plan to the first floor plan? It's a full brick veneer so I have the dims set to the exterior of my CMU foundation which lines up w/ my framing wall above and my walls are aligned (supposedly), but as you can see there are discrepancies w/ the dimensions from one floor to the next, some match and some don't (not good). 17-204.plan

    Flemish bond bricks

    Glenn - I assume you are you suggesting I draw a polyline over the walls in elevation view and fill it w/ 20-BRK hatch pattern? Is there a way to get the pattern on to the actual wall type?

    Changing ceiling heights

    Just started it, do I need to define the rooms above?

    Changing ceiling heights

    Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but I can't get it to work. Here is the plan if you want to take a look. 17-056 Husson.plan

    Changing ceiling heights

    Eric - When you go to the structure panel of the room spec dialog and change the ceiling height it changes all of the ceiling heights of every room on that floor.

    Changing ceiling heights

    I just started designing a house that has multiple rooms that have different types of trey ceilings w/ different heights above the floor. Is there a way to control the ceiling heights in an individual rooms that won't change the heights of all the other rooms?

    Controlling roof openings

    That's what I did.

    Controlling roof openings

    I'm designing a house with the 2nd story tucked under a hip roof and have added some dormers with windows. The problem is on the rear of the house, I have a large shed dormer that is cut right through the main roof. I added a roof opening to the main roof but I can't seem to get it to show up properly, it keeps putting the opening on the upper shed roof. Is there any way to control this? When I first designed it I had it perfect w/ no issues but as the house had gone through various revisions somewhere I have lost the ability to control which roof plane the opening is actually on. Uggh! Davidovich.plan

    Auto Dims won't work

    Yeah Alaskan_Son you must have the "Midas Touch", I'm not sure what is going on still can't get it to show. Works fine on the garage portion of first floor, the entire second floor and entire foundation plan. Auto dim layer is on and all my walls are connected. STUMPED!

    Auto Dims won't work

    When I select the automatic dimension tool it will only dimension my garage portion and not the main house floor plan (only on the first floor, second floor works fine). This is house we designed previously for a different lot and when we decided to use it for another lot I had to rotate the plan, which might have something to do with it. FYI I'm using X7.
