I use Chief x8. A interior designer friend is new to home designer pro. She might want me to do some renderings and drafting for her in Home designer Pro. Will it be easy to help her since I know Chief x8. Is working in each similar.

Check with Chief tomorrow, I am doing a project with someone that uses home designer pro and I have to use chief X7 to that we can go back and forth looking at plans and making revision, not sure if Chief has upgrade hd pro so that it works with x8 yet but they will know which will work for you it will all depend on what version of hd pro they have

there is an edit flag that has to be set in Chief or the plan will be read only

 

if you use any Premier features that PRO doesn't have that feature/area

will be read only

 

plan sharing can work but there are considerations

 

as Ray stated the two have to be on the same version level to share

      Hi All
      My name is Jonathan Fales and I have been drawing plans and pulling permits all over the California Bay Area for over a decade now. A tremendous amount of my work is done through Via Builders Inc out of Los Altos, CA . Most everything you see on that website had me as the lead draftsman. I have answered comments and argued points with every municipality around. On the side I operate JDFales Plans & Permits where I currently have projects all over the state and even a few out of state jobs from time to time. Aside from traditional residential plans and permits I've traced PDFs, Made 3D models, added notations to already created plans.....you name it. I can do it. My background before drawing was construction of course. I've been a laborer, carpenter, project manager and now Draftsman. If you need to make sense out of construction jargon from a contractor or technical talk from the city/ county...I'm your translator. Email Me- Jdfales@gmail.com

      American Heritage Homes is a locally owned, custom home builder with over 25 years experience building in the Central Ohio area. We are currently seeking a drafting professional to join our team. 
       
      We are not seeking remote services or contract services at this time - so only those that can train and work in and around Central Ohio need reply.
       
      We build homes for our customers on land that they own. We don't build spec homes for sale. Every home, every customer, and every lot is different and very unique.

      Not sure what the official ask/profession is but ideally id like to find someone local to the Phoenix area that could come and measure my house and draw up the existing layout so it can be manipulated in Home Designer Pro.
       
      We are looking to remodel the house and I'd like to draw up some ideas in HD but I don't know where to start on mapping the existing house accurately. Ultimately I'd get an architect to complete the final plans - i assume using these professionally measured and draw up house plan as a base.
       
      Any recommendations, services or advice on better ways to do this would be gratefully receive.
      Thanks, Adam
