Hi Denise,

This is explained much better in the user guide, page 31 under the title "Applying Building Materials", so it is kind of pointless to retype it here. This is the Manual's text (you can use the search function to find it)
To apply material
1Click the Materials Tab. The Preview Bar displays the available materials.
2At the top of the Preview Bar, click the Library drop-down menu, then select Punch! Material Library from the menu.
3(optional) At the top of the Preview Bar, click the Style drop-down menu to display the Materials style menu, then click to check the material you want, for instance brick, stucco, stone, siding, and so on. Options of the selected material are displayed on the Preview Bar.
4Scroll to view the available materials.
5Click the material you want to apply; hold down the mouse button and drag the material onto the exterior walls of your home, in the 3D View window. The material you selected is applied.
Note: To increase the accuracy of applying materials, it may help to zoom in closer to what you are texturing.
To apply custom materials
1Click the Materials tab. The Preview Bar displays the available materials.
2At the top of the Preview Bar, click the Library drop-down menu, then select Custom Material Library from the menu.
3At the top of the Preview Bar, click the Custom Materials Library drop-down menu, then select a library. The Preview Bar displays custom material options.
4Click the custom material you want to apply; hold down the mouse button and drag it onto a surface of your home, in the 3D View window. The custom material you selected is applied

Thanks again. This was all awesome, if not a bit overwhelming because of ALL the options. You easily forget what you found and where it was at...lol.

Is there a way now

1) to get the wainscot to go all the way down to the ground and

2)use other stones to create your own colors?

Hi Denise,

Wainscot: it is in the Trim tab
Other stones: yes, you can import your own textures using File => Import => Material to library

I cannot find anything in the user guide, in the Punch Software Training Tools Tutorials 2nd Edition which I just purchased, or in the forum posts. I am using Home and Landscape Design Premium, V17.7, in a Windows 10 environment.

Thanks

Hi there,

Not sure why you can't find "how to apply textures / colors / materials"
Do you mean that the Search feature is not working?

Searching the subject "How to apply textures / materials" in the User's Guide => use the Adobe search tool or the index => you will find this subject in the page 35 (see attached)

Searching the subject "How to apply textures / materials" in the eBook "Training Tools Tutorials 2nd Edition" => use the Adobe search tool or the index => you will find this subject in the page 194 (see attached)

Searching the subject "How to apply textures / materials" in the Forum => use the Search tool => two examples =>
Patricia G., "Welcome" #902, 15 Jul 2012 5:56 pm
Patricia G., "PHOTOVIEW" #17, 19 Oct 2015 2:49 pm

The process is pretty straight => select the material => drag and drop on the floor.
