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

Newell, The interface looks the same. Click on the blue door at the top of the forum screen where you see the Facebook and YouTube Icons.

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

      Hello, 
       
      We are an exterior porcelain tile manufacturer looking for additional drafting services. We manufacturer exterior deck flooring and pedestal systems for residential & commercial rooftop decks, restaurants, pools, etc (mbricotiledecks.com). Our in house drafting staff is struggling to keep up with drafting requirements for our projects as our business continues to grow. We're interested in looking into freelance remote drafting services. The majority of drawings are fairly basic tile patterns in various exterior settings. Attached are a couple of examples. Please respond with hourly rate, example of work and any questions if interested. Thanks!

      Open to new work. I've been working remotely for clients for years and can easily navigate the issues that present themselves from remote work. I have plenty of references and videos demonstrating my various services. The following images are snippets from my site at www.RabbittDesign.net
       

      I offer training-while-drafting services in Chief Architect as well as training in Sketchup, Thea Render, Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Procreate.
      I tend to cater to experienced designers and drafters in Chief Architect, many of which benefit from and are quite pleased with anno/layer sets, library items, toolbars, and a more cohesive folder structure and .plan and .layout files. 
      A few hours of my service may cut hours off of every project you have going forward.
      Feel free to check out my YouTube channel dedicated to all things drafting, designing, modeling and rendering in my signature below.
      Take a look at some of my recent design work in the Gallery
      Also, take a look at the extensive Free Content Thread and continued free content YouTube Series:

      I have drawn a house plan in Home Designer Pro and need some help getting the layouts made for the permitting process.  I would love to work with someone as we go through the blueprints to send to the local permitting office.  I live in the Skagit Valley, north of Seattle, Washington State.  I would be willing to drive a ways.  Please contact me at akmominator@gmail.com.

      Award winning kitchen design studio seeking a junior designer on a part time consulting basis to take on site measurements and initial drafting of kitchens.  Candidate will need to have on the ground presence in Lower Westchester New York at jobsite at least for measuring; will need to do site visits, measure spaces, and draft initial cut at kitchen designs and prepare 3D architect layout documents for client review using our studio templates.  Additional responsibilities are a possibility if candidate is interested, including client follow up work, interior design material selection and ordering, layout, etc.  I am flexible on job scope and happy to work with the right person to tailor the responsibilities.
