Material Used in HD-Arch'16 Not Found in HD-Pro'19

Recommended Posts

In my Home Designer Architect 2016 floor plan I used a "Material" found in the following Library path (for several Exterior Walls):

 

     Manufacturer Catalogs > Coronado Stone > Ledgestones > Old World Ledge > Old World Ledge Wintergreen

 

After I upgraded to Home Designer Pro 2019 I uploaded the Manufacturer Catalogs for 2019, which included Coronado Stone.  When I opened a "copy" (of the same floor as noted above) in my HD-Pro'19, the "Old World Ledge Wintergreen" does show for the applicable Exterior Walls.  But I am not able to assign the "Old World Ledge Wintergreen" to any new objects since it does not exist in the 2019 Manufacturer Catalog for Coronado Stone.  How can I upload and install the missing "Old World Ledge Wintergreen" material type? . . .

 

. . . Just figured it out!  Had to download the 2016 Coronado.calibz zipped file (42,837 KB) into a different folder, so as to not "replace" the 2019 Coronado.calibz zipped file (910,457  KB), and then performed the following command: "Library > Import Library" and specified the 2016 Coronado.calibz zipped file.

 

The only thing I am unsure about is whether the now updated Manufacturer Catalog for Coronado Stone is a merger of the 2016 and 2019 material items or not.  Maybe someone can shed some light on this matter.  If the result is a merger, this would solve "missing material" when upgrading Chief Architect Home Designer versions and migrating floor plans created under prior versions.  Thank you in advance for your feedback and assistance in this matter.

My guess is that you now just have two Coronado entries under Manufacturer.....it is likely the library was updated to reflect currently available Materials , so if you plan to really use that particular Stone I'd check on availability with Coronado.

Rick:

 

HD PRO users should follow this forum as well as the Hometalk forum

 

since HD Pro has many of the manual tools that Chief Premier has

 

just make sure your posts clarify that you use HD Pro

and to remember that not everything posted here applies to HD Pro
