You do not need to leave gaps in the wall for future doors or windows. HGTV Home Design for Mac automatically creates an opening when you place a window or door in the wall.

To add a door or window:

  1. Click the Building Elements button on the toolbar.


    Choose Library → Building Elements from the Window menu.

  2. In the pop-up menu at the top of the pane, specify Doors or Windows.
  3. Scroll through the thumbnails for the doors or windows.
  4. Drag a door or window onto a wall.
  5. As needed, adjust the location of the door or window by moving it along the wall.
  6. Adjust the parameters of the door or window by changing settings on the Object Properties tab of the Inspector.
