Hello!

 

I'm hoping that someone can help me out here. I frequently use the same materials and I was wondering if there is any way to change the default textures/ colors so that every new project starts off the same. For example: on exterior walls CA defaults to blue lap siding; bathrooms and kitchen default to a cream tile; walls, windows, and doors default to Brite paint; etc.

 

I'd like to change these so that I can save myself time. Can someone explain how to do that, please? 

 

Thank you! :)

You can also save one of your current Plans in which you have already done the changes as a Template , then just delete the Home already drawn in the Template ready to draw a new plan.

      How do I take picure of a color or texture and use it in Room Planner as a custom material?

      I am having major problems with the colors on both my screen AND printing.  I am using CA x10 Interiors and am trying to utilize the colors from Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore catalogs in my designs.  However, the colors on screen and when I print look nothing like the actual colors.  Additionally, when I print the 3d elevations, the images are too dark, so I have to export them and then open and adjust in Photoshop.  I have a Dell P2717H (DP) monitor and it has been calibrated for color, screen resolution is 1920x1080.  Operating system is Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit, video card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX745 with 4095MB memory.  It isn't just some plans, it is all plans.  Any help would be appreciated!!!!

      Has anyone figured out how to create glass? 
       
      I am trying to construct a very minimal shower, but I don't see any glass color options, or glass pieces. 
       
      Likewise, I do not see any non framed mirrors, am I nuts? 
       
      If anyone has a way to get frames off of things, color something glass, or finds a minimal mirror, please let me know!

      Why do the rendering colors change from a vector view to the standard view. See still doing it in x10.

      Drywalled doorway openings - I cannot change the opening to the same color as the walls??? See attached.  I've changed the wall materials to all drywall and painted the same wall color.  I'm at a loss on how to solve this problem?
