I found a material in the library that I would like to modify and then use in different plans. How can I do this?
Materials in Home Designer programs can be edited so that they better suit your design needs.
The Adjust Material Definition tool is useful for quickly changing plan materials directly from a 3D view, however, changing a material's definition with this tool affects all objects in the current plan that are using this material.
If you wish to customize a material that you see in the Library Browser and make those changes available for use in other plans or for exporting, begin by creating a copy of the material and then modify it as needed.
