Differences in Pool Studio
Fewer Landscape Design Tools: Pool Studio has fewer options for landscape design than VizTerra. Pool Studio only has about a third the number of plants and trees present in VizTerra. While in VizTerra, you will not be able change the symbols assigned to items in the library or place plants and trees with different container classes. Custom symbols you have already assigned to items in the library will still be set, but you will only be able to insert plants and trees in the full container class. In general, you will want to return to VizTerra to work on landscaping.
Library Items: Some library items, especially landscaping equipment and accessories, available in the library in VizTerra are not available in Pool Studio. If these items are present in your design you will be able to move them, but you will not be able to add new copies until you return to VizTerra.
Favorites and New Items Added: Items only available in VizTerra that you have saved to your Favorites list will not appear when in Pool Studio. The items are still saved to your list and will reappear when you return to VizTerra. The same applies to Pool Studio only items saved to Favorites while in Pool Studio. They will not appear when you are in VizTerra. The New Items Added list works the same way.
