"U get what u pay for. Only one download."

February 12, 2012  |  By pcruz55

 |  Version: Home Plan Pro 4.5

Pros

inexpensive

Cons

Clumsy. Difficult to change (re-size, move...) elements once drawn; easier to delete (the element) and start over; but there have been times I've had to start the whole drawing over. Can change, re-size etc, but very imprecise. My new company uses this, so I had to purchase after the trial. I have MS Visio2003 from a previous business, and plan on using it instead, (once I'm w/ the company longer; customers only see the pdf anyway.) For regular use, I would recommend spending more $ for a "professional" program, rather than a "hobbyist" program. I know it's more money, but Visio has a huge library of pre-drawn elements, and is much easier to learn and use, (Microsoft-looking toolbar,) vs HPP.

Summary

I hadn't used Visio in a few years, but just to compare, I did a better drawing in less than half the time; it was easy to recall the more-intuitive Visio drawing techniques even after not having used it for a while. Visio is not just for Home plans; has many other architectural/building and "business process" capabilities (mapping, graphs and charts, process flow diagrams etc.) Sorry didnt mean to make it a commercial for Visio.

"Trial over"

August 14, 2008  |  By marytgorman

 |  Version: Home Plan Pro 4.5

Cons

I installed this program but when I tried to use it I couldn't because it said my trial ended over 3000 days ago... so hopefully other people have better luck than me with it!

"won't run"

April 30, 2008  |  By Romstar

 |  Version: Home Plan Pro 4.5

Cons

The software installed properly from what I could tell. It just told me that I did the install back in 1899. Therefor it wouldn't run as the 30 day eval was over some 39000 days ago.

"Simple to use, Little experience necessary, Affordable!"

October 18, 2007  |  By 1PunchKO

 |  Version: Home Plan Pro 4.5

Pros

I was looking for a simple system, nothing elaborate to sketch up my warehouse blue prints for future redesign. Everything else was too complex and hard to use, this was very simple and did exactly what it promissed to do. I also custom build aquarium systems and plan on using it for designing those too and will be buying the pro version.

Cons

Just started using it so I see nothing thus far on the negative side but will post again if I do. Enjoy!

"Horrible Program"

February 11, 2006  |  By grandforks

 |  Version: Home Plan Pro 4.5

Pros

Easy to change wall colors.

Cons

This program is completely useless. You cannot make angled walls without the stupid program misaligning the beginning of the wall with the end of the prior wall. After 2 hours of a big waste of my life, I decided to delete it off my computer.

"Magic results in no time........I will be buying."

September 12, 2005  |  By DennisA

 |  Version: Home Plan Pro 4.5

Pros

Excellent toolbox and help; dimensions and scale are a breeze, zoom up for fine detail and measurement. Want a vector elevation of your house from a jpeg? Load the image and trace the lines, delete the image and leave the drawing. With a known wall or base measurement, use simple math to accurately size the drawing, add fills, tiles, windows, doors, etc. Brilliant.

Everything is so easy to use, plus there's predraw figures, like couches, recliners, sinks, toilets, benches, ponds...I am trying to design a garden for the backyard at my new house, and this is absolutely perfect for the job!!! I'm buying the unlimited version after the trial period!

Cons

There are absolutely no cons at all.
