Hi Trudy,

There are not upgrade versions, all the Punch products are full versions, however, I know that Punch offers coupons and deals for past users

As you know, this Forum is user to user, so I can answer only technical questions. For any question regarding upgrade prices, coupons, deals, etc, I'd suggest that you check directly with Punch

Hi Julie,

I'd suggest that you use the Deck tool (Deck tab)--> don't forget to verify the elevation of the balcony / deck / verandah
In the user guide --> look for the Deck tab chapter --> you will find a lot of information and resources

Hi there,

you need to use the double doors--> use the two different parts of the double door (left and right) and place them together, until the "post" disappears
Tip: if each half of your door has, for example, 32" , the distance between the centers of each segment will be also 32" --> in this case, the two pieces will blend

Do you mean a frame leg (vertical element) or a beam (horizontal element)?

Are you using the double doors? --> Click on the Doors button--> you will find 4 additional categories (light, panel, double doors and garage doors)--> use the double doors

Yes, I mean the vertical beam in between the two double doors.
How do I get rid of it or make it disappear.
Thank You.

In addition, I'd suggest that you read all the User's Manual --> in special there is a section called "Adding Double Doors"

They are double doors and I have read the "Adding Double Doors" section in the User Guide and done what the instructions said but it, (called "centre post" in the User Guide) is still there. Please help.
Thank You.

Place them together (set both parts very close), until the "post" disappears
Tip: if each half of your door has, for example, 32" , the distance between the centers of each segment will be also 32" --> in this case, the two pieces will blend

Hi there,

This is how I create any type of winding staircases (straight or curved)
Go to the Detail Tab --> draw lines with the length and shape of each segment of the stair or create a line with the stairs' shape --> convert to stairs--> set height and elevation
You can use the floor tool for the landings

See two examples attached (they were developed with other version but the method is the same)
