    MIssing Textures after upgrade to x12

    Hi All, After an upgrade to x12 I noticed that some of my manufacturer catalogs had a lot of items that said "No Texture" or "Missing Texture", especially James Hardie and CertainTeed. My 3D plants from the Bonus Catalog is also missing all its textures... and there might be others. I tried re-downloading and re-installing the catalogs but no good. Any thoughts on this?

    Reversing plan - advice on process?

    If the Reverse Plan tool allows me to keep the saved elevation, I'd probably be willing to reverse the terrain myself. I'll have to test both ways i guess. Good advice - I think this is likely the way I will have to go!

    Save/Edit Active Camera x12

    Hi all; Does anyone know what happened to the "Save/Edit Active Camera" Items in the 3D menu in x12 when you have a camera view open?

    Just to find the consensus, Is this other people's experience as well?

    Notes on Layout files.

    Are elevation views reversible (preserving notes and dimensions)? Then switching to this way would be a no-brainer for me.

    Notes on Layout files.

    Hi All, For whatever reason, I've made it a habit to add notes to my elevation views on the layout file instead of within the plan. I'm just now realizing that might not be a good idea, but I'm wondering if anyone else does this or has any thoughts on this? Is it best practice just to add text only where you need titles or general construction notes?

    Reversing plan - advice on process?

    Hi all, Looking for a good process to reverse my plans as needed. I have a couple different relating questions: 1. I've been using Edit > Edit Area > Edit Area (All Floors) and mirroring over a line. I saw recently that there is a reverse plan tool (Tools > Reverse Plan). Does this essentially do the same thing? Any differences? 2. Is there a good way to reverse your elevation views and preserve dimensions/notes/ect? Thanks!

    Are saved plan views meant to replace working with layer sets?

    I guess i better jump on this train or get run over. Thanks guys!

    Are saved plan views meant to replace working with layer sets?

    So in your daily work, besides maybe initially setting up your layer sets, do you generally switch between saved plan views instead of directly changing your layer set? I'm used to changing my layer set directly from the drop-down menu. *Edit - I think dshall just answered my question. Thanks!
  13. Just upgraded to x12 and noticed that my active layer set drop down toolbar menu has been replaced with a saved plan view drop down menu. I understand you can add it back in by customizing your toolbar, but based on it's removal I'm assuming most people are working with "saved plan views" instead of switching layer sets. It seems like "saved plan views" are like layer sets 2.0, where the layer set is just one setting that is adjusted by switching to a saved plan view. Is this accurate? And are most of you just switching between saved plan views in your daily work instead of layer sets?
