I would like to create a plan in metric units, and later today I would like to create another plan in imperial units. How do I select the units of my choice within Home Designer?
When creating a plan in Home Designer, either Metric (millimeters, centimeters, meters, etc) or Imperial (inches, feet) measurement units are available. The measurement system must be set before creating a plan and cannot be changed for existing plans.
To start a new plan using a particular unit type
Launch Home Designer and click on New Plan .
In the Create New Plan dialog that appears:
Use the Measurement Units drop-down menu to choose between U.S. Units (inches) or Metric Units (millimeters).
Home Designer includes a selection of plan templates, each with different default settings that allow you to begin working in a particular plan style quickly. Select a style template from the list.
If you are uncertain as to the right style for your plan, choose the Default Style option, as you cannot change the plan style template once a plan has been created.
The floor plan view window opens, ready for you to begin drawing.
