Turn OFF sounds in the Hide/Unhide Menu under Preview Mode:

In the Panel, you can adjust the volume of individual water features and spillovers.
Once this value is set, it is remembered for the next water feature you insert.
Sound Setting
For example: if you decrease the spillover volume to 50%, the next spillover you add will have the volume set to 50%.

Each water feature and spillover type remember individually.
If another file already has a water feature in it, the volume was set when you inserted it. 

Text Effects

You can insert text into your designs with the Text tool at any time in 3D. While in 2D, Text FX can be selected in the Yard Accessories stage.

Showcase design elements, highlight specific features, add custom watermarks, or even include a personalized message to your clients.


You can easily customize the size, appearance, and placement of your text in the Panel.
