Need help in Portland OR area getting current HD Pro defaults set up for my project on a Mac.
I would love to play with this software like a game but I need to submit plans soon if I am to turn any dirt this summer.
I am a (pounding head on desk) complete HD noob designing a single story open floorpan ICF (insulated concrete form) home.
I do not want someone to hand over complete documents since it is my goal to learn this software and explore alternatives for this and future projects.
The defaults are definitely messing up my attempts to create plans for ICF construction.
