  3. Hello, I am still learning this software and I am wondering how I can remove the additional dashed lines and walls that pop up on the floor plan after roof planes are created? I have attached a picture and circled the dashed lines as a reference. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Shonna Johnson Chief Architect Premier X12 question-3.pdf

  5. Double knuckle articulating arms are outdated. Would love to see a single piston single knuckle arm with an integrated led to be ultra sleek. Seeing as this is the tech age, I would incorporate standard mountable hardware for attaching such things as a standard microphone for dual purpose use. Also would be nice to quickly shift locations of such a lamp nby creating a mounting system that is easy to detach and mount to say a mic stand or wall mount bracket.
  6. When I sketch, I am at the same seat as when I use my keyboard. I will just move my keyboard out of the way and work with some trace paper or a drawing pad. Therefore I am generally using the light of my monitor. I would suggest you work on a filter/magnifier of light from the monitor. No additional energy but a modification for the energy being used right in front of me.

    The frieze board on the front was raised up 12" for some reason. Might check that.

    I will remember that for another job. Seems what I am trying is not working. I added the frieze boards manually and all looks fine. When I moved my roofs to the second floor and unchecked roofs over this room, it did work - my frieze board came back - but on one side. I need to keep moving but will remember this. Thank you!

    I did drop them 3" to expose my trim under the windows, that is the the case. So the fix would be to lower the garage space/ceiling 3" Thank you!
  12. Great thanks Michael, that was it!

    Import Layer Sets ?

    What an idiot I can be sometimes. You are correct. I was confusing the layer set names. (All Layers On vs All On Set) Sorry for the false alarm. Thanks

    Looks like the lower roof needs to be drug up slightly so that it touches the upper wall.

    Ah! Very good. Thank you so much! I will keep an eye on this. I have been used to moving things regardless of these spaces - and I do keep running into things like this.

    Your roof heights are adjusted manually so it is conflicting. Didn't have much time to play with it but setting auto roof back on fixed it instantly but then you have an issue with your roof over your garage intruding into the upper windows. I believe the issue is you are lowering that attic roof over the garage so it doesn't hit the windows which we know can be done in real life but chief works as boxes so it is saying these boxes are this high and that is why the roof goes there. I believe you will need to change your floor system for that part of the second floor and then lower your ceiling height on the garage so the trusses go over the top of the plate.

    Layout & Schedules

    Send to layout directly from cad details using “send to layout” icon in upper left toolbar. Don’t copy and paste.

    Layout & Schedules

    Theres a couple of ways to do it, but typically I put my schedule on a CAD detail, then send it to Layout from there. Hope that helps.

    Layout & Schedules

    Hard to tell how to advise you as we are unsure of what software you are using and what hardware, please add that information to your signature as the answer given for your question almost always depends on that information. Another recommendation is a brief search which will many times answer your question. Now assuming you are using the latest Chief Architect Premier or Interiors X12 or even a recent Xversion (any other software has their own forum specific to that software)this quick search brought up this video which should explain on how to use the layout. https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/48/creating-layouts-and-construction-documents.html Hope this helps, and please take the advice about the signature to heart as it really is very important to have filled out.

    Frieze Boards Are Not Showing Up

    Hello, I am trying to get my frieze boards to show up on two roofs. This is one of my more simple rooflines I have drawn, but even putting a new roof on is not working. Maybe a conflict with the wall, but I even drew over the wall with the end wall that has a frieze board. Thoughts? And as always, I very much appreciate all the help everyone has offered!! Plan link in next post... Thank you, Steve 1 October, 2020 - Loom Recording.mp4

    Import Layer Sets ?

    Sounds like you must be doing something wrong Alan, it works for me.
  25. Hello all, I am having trouble with exterior trim disappearing when using a wall type with an exterior strapping (furring) layer. See the attached screenshots. One shows the trim showing properly with the standard wall type without any exterior strapping, but the other screenshot shows the trim missing when a strapping layer is added... Any thoughts?..

    Layout & Schedules

    I am looking for a solution on how to insert schedules into Layout. I have tried converting the schedule while in a Plan to a Cad block and then inserting into layout by Copy/Paste, but this deleted the Note # specific to each line item and I would then have to manually add them for each line item on the layout page. Here is a picture from a Chief layout where I have blue circled the schedule showing that Chief has inserted it into layout. Any ideas?

    Upload it to Dropbox (free version works fine for me) and then send a link to your recipient.
