How do I change the default construction method from placing the posts on the outside of the fence to placing the posts on the inside of the fence?

Most home owners associations require the posts to show on the inside of the fence and the panel to face the neighbors; however the default setting in the system will place the posts on the outside. To move the posts to the inside of the fence, while in the Plan View, click on Modify, then click on Reverse. Click on the fence area you wish to change.

How do I change the height of a Fence?

The height of the fence is based on the selected fence material. While in Plan View, click on the Modify button, then click on the side of the fence you want to modify. A dialog box containing all selectable fence panels by dimensions will be displayed for your default store. Select the panel with the appropriate dimensions to get the desired height. You can also double click on the side of the fence you wish to modify, which will display a dialog box with the selectable fence panels by dimensions.

How can I change fence or gate materials?

To change the materials for a fence or gate, use one of the following procedures:

  1. Double-click the gate or fence section that you want to change.
  2. Click Modify in the Ribbon menu, followed by Fence or Gate. Click the gate or fence section that you want to modify.

Either of these procedures will display the Fence Properties dialog (if a fence section was chosen) or the Gate Properties dialog (if a gate was chosen).

  1. Click in the right-hand section of the dialog to display a picture and a drawing of the fence or gate in the left-hand section of the dialog.
  2. Once a fence or gate style has been chosen, you can use the arrow keys on your computer’s keyboard to move up or down in the list.
  3. When the desired fence or gate style has been chosen, click the OK button to return to the fence project.

NOTE: The process for changing fence materials only changes the section that was selected in step 2. To change materials for multiple fence sections, repeat the steps shown above.
