    reference layer displaying in layout

    My comment was directed at the person who doesn't understand where the layout box is getting is information from in the first place. In my opinion, it's best to understand what's going on before trying to address it. Besides, the layout box may not even be referencing a Saved Plan View anyway. Bottom line and key is that a Layout Box remembers certain things. You can see most of those things by opening the Layout Box Specification dialog. Then you can either proceed to change those things right in that dialog or you can adjust the appropriate Saved Plan View.
  3. Hi Glennw. Do you offer an online servcie to bring a basic idea of a rennovation plan into some sort of usable specification plan for local council.There is only so much time in a day I can try and teach myself and  am hoping someone like yourself might be able to fast track us? Kerrie

    Stoop in Foundation layer

    All great ideas....but go to the main floor and select the walls defining your stoop. Now open those walls and make them BEARING walls and you will see an option light up for a stem wall and footing appear. Select that and now you have foundation walls that you don't have to manually draw.

    OK, I'll bite. How is it 'better'? Yes, the layout box dialog shows what's displayed, but it doesn't allow control of the reference displays. For that, you need to edit the SVP. Unless I'm missing something...I guess you can unlink the SVP...
  8. This can happen when placing a wall from the library when a wall type with the same name already exists in the plan and both walls do not have the same wall definitions. You can tell when this happens by the way Chief appends and underscore and number to the wall name - ie "_2". This means that if you place a wall from the library and then open that wall and change any of it's definition parameters, and then try and draw another wall of the same type from the library, it will be automatically renamed. Renaming wall types can get a bit messy because you can change a wall name directly in the library, BUT, doing this will not change the actual name of the wall definition. You can also rename a wall type in Wall Type Definitions dbx - this will not change the wall type name in the library. I tend not to keep wall definitions in the library, but rather keep them in the drawing (my default plan). I am not sure what process you have followed to get your results, but the above may help a little. I am not sure about the material changes - I haven't had time to look further.

    ...better yet, select your Layout Box, open it, and study that dialog carefully. Hopefully that exercise will help you understand a little better what’s going on.

    Stoop in Foundation layer

    Create a reference layer of your main floor that shows just the foundation of the stoop, then turn on that reference layer on your foundation level.

    reference layer displaying in layout

    No search is returning results. In my layout file, the reference displays are showing; though no longer turned on in the plan file. So I double-click the layout box, it activates my plan file and now reference layers are turned back on. Click them off and go back to the layout tab and they are still displayed. Is there a way to turn off reference layers from the layout without deleting the layout box and resending from the .plan file?
  14. I’m seeking an experienced drafter that could complete plans (with BOM) for county permit submission complying with Florida Building Codes. Plans are for a 41’x22’x12’ post and beam addition to existing structure. No electric, no plumbing. Truss work to be performed on-site as job is too small for the truss companies. Roof design will be lean-to, out to where it meets existing roofline, then integrates to continue along that line. Can explain, once comms established with a designer. Both ends of pole barn to have double-car garage doors and the one remaining wall will have 2-3 windows. Thank you, in advance. Respectfully, Frank

    I would just like to heartily thank all of you for the guidance and for helping me figure this out. I really appreciate it and I think it turned out pretty nice.

    Stoop in Foundation layer

    You could try drawing the foundation for the stoop on the foundation level, select the room that is then defined by those walls, then in the structure tab change the ceiling height of that foundation room to a more appropriate value, which will bring the floor of that room up. Probably other/better methods but this one might work for you. stoop plan.plan

    One of your wall selections in the pull down menu will be "straight foundation walls". Click on it and draw them in. Make sure they are aligned with the walls of your "stoop".
  19. Placing my stored in library walls into your plan works fine.
  20. The exported wall looks like this -- is it correct?
  21. Hopefully, this is correct... 20-2058 441 Leonardo Exist - Copy.plan exist-wall.calibz
  22. How do I export just one wall definition? If I put it in the plan it is wrong. But in the library it is good.
  23. WOW, this time it changed all the materials except drywall? Antique Glass? I did not even know that existed!
