I would like to add a transom and side lites to a door in my plan. How do I do this?
In Home Designer, a selection of entryways with transoms and side lites can be found in the Library Browser under Home Designer Core Catalogs> Architectural> Doors and Doorways> Entryways.
However, if you do not find a doorway that suits your needs in the library, you can create one yourself using the Door and Window Tools.
Using default settings, the window may bump too close to the door and push beyond the door casing.
If this happens, select Edit> Default Settings, select Window and press Edit. On the General panel, set the Minimum Separation from 2" to 4" and press OK and press Done.
You may need to pull the window out and bump it back against the door for this to take effect.
When a window is placed above one or more windows or doors to form a transom, it's helpful to take advantage of Chief Architect's window levels.
