I would like to duplicate the interior walls from floor one on floor two. Is there a way to superimpose the contents of floor one on top of floor two; a way that would allow me to edit floor two while looking at floor one?
Home Designer can manage up to three separate floors in a plan, plus an attic and a foundation. Of these floors, only one can be active for editing at a time. However, one floor, called a reference floor, can be superimposed on the working floorto keep walls and rooms in line. In addition, the option to switch between working and reference floors is available.
This option displays one floor as a reference superimposed over the current floor plan. The contents of the reference plan cannot be edited; however, they can be used to align walls, stairs and other items in the plan. A second floor must first be created before the first floor can be used as a reference.
This option works with Reference Display On to simultaneously change the current plan into the reference plan and the reference plan into the current plan.
This option specifies which floor plan is used as the current plan and which one is the reference plan. The Reference Display On and Swap Floor/Reference commands use these settings.
