    Jesse, More than likely the architect you gave them to is not a "chief " user,. My guess is that he is an AutoCad/Revit user and does not/will not want to take the time to wade through the layers etc. which is his prerogative. However, that is no excuse to be RUDE. If I were in your position after having someone say that I would NOT hire him. He has already shown what kind of person he is (arrogant) and to speak that way to a person who could have been a paying customer just goes to show he is not worthy of your money. What I recommend you should do, is get one of the guys here on this forum who is familiar with & uses basically the same software or who can do a "save as" to help you. Have them tidy up and/complete the construction drawing set and then you give the set to your builder. You will be, by far, better off working with a "like fellow". Just my opinion.

    Cabinet Door Auto Right/Left

    @Dillon2019 Usually best to start a new thread and try to be more descriptive. How do you change what manually? You may delete your comment above via Options. And please check your messages.

    Cabinet Door Auto Right/Left

    How do you change it manually? This is for a 27" refrigerator panel.

    Custom Toolbars

    Those are just the extra tools buttons that you have added from "Tools" library. They are not part of the stock tool bar. The only issue I see are the duplicate entries that you likely added individually to each different view rather than just checking off what view you need to see the tool in.

    The plan file is over the 25mb limit. I can send it in a zipped file via email if you would like

    opaque windows in vector view

    found the solution - in trying to alter the window frame size, I set it i "0" which might have removed the glass. After resetting to default size, the opaque windows reappeared. Thanks all for your suggestions.

    Lost my toolbars

    Can someone please tell me how to get all of my toolbars pulled up and across the top of my screen? I just opened the software and they are gone

    Text Arrows Moving

    I've found that using "Attach Tail to Other Objects" ONLY is the best for me. (Nothing else checked) If you attach the head and label a foundation, the arrow may attach to the foundation & any edit to the wall can cause the head of the arrow to jump.

    I see a cad block "edit in the library" feature. Wondering how Chief handles the scaling when you replace the blocks in the plan with the new block of the same name?

    Adding a center rail to a cabinet door

    Not for the double panel solid unless one of these doesn't meet your needs.

    Adding a center rail to a cabinet door

    Custom door needed for either way, whether one panel glazed or both solid. You'll use one or two sets of horizontal stretch planes, depending on the result you want. Write a suggestion for Chief to add this option. Chief seems to like cabinet stuff, and you might get it for 2022.

    Adding a center rail to a cabinet door

    Simple double door use one from the library (chief has a double door library) the one with the top only being glass would be a custom door.

    How to Build a Cupola

    I would use auto roofs and build the popup on a new floor. That way, most things will happen automatically.

    How to delete a manually created layer

    @DermotThis is a helpful little tidbit, thanks.

    The guy said he needed everything I had so that’s what I sent. He is supposed to be taking what I have editing the truss layers and putting everything in “construction” plan layout to submit to the builder and city for permitting. I’m just curious if he knows what he’s doing or is just trying to rip me off. I hate to think I spent twenty plus hour pluse the expense of the software if it’s no better than drawing it out on a napkin and taking it to them
