  1. Turning off the undo didn't improve the performance. I'm thinking it has something to do with the number of layout boxes referring to the plan....
  2. I am seeing this type of lag with a layout file open, as well. 8-10 seconds to relocate a window label. Less than a second with the layout file closed. I do have a few live views in the layout, but not any more than I usually have, and the slow down is substantially greater than I have seen before the last release. It's not limited to one project either, I'm seeing a lag across the board.
  3. Happens to me, too. I reported the bug, but haven't been able to narrow it down to a point where I can accurately reproduce the bug.
  4. Thanks for your help, Michael. I think you've confirmed my suspicion. I've tried importing defaults and annosets, but those particular settings don't come across. I'll send in a feature request.
  5. I have the story pole dimension defaults set up the way I want in my templates, and I would like to export them from my template plan and import into another plan. Anyone know if there's a way?
  6. Thanks for the heads-up. Glad I saw this before I updated - I will wait!
  7. Here's the response I received from support: Hi Steve, Thank you for sending me the backed up plan file and for bringing this to our attention. I was able to duplicate the behavior you describe and I will be sending this to our developers so that they can work to resolve this issue. Unfortunately, I do not have a solution for you at this time. Chief Architect Technical Support
  8. Thanks Perry. I may start dialing in some grayscale settings...
  9. I can see what you're saying. I'm not totally opposed to that, but I like having different fill colors (rather than different shades) for different wall types because I can quickly see and differentiate between wall types in plan view. I tend to double click the plan in layout view to enter into the desired layerset for detailing. If it is set up with everything as a shade of gray in the layerset, I think it would slow productivity a bit, not having color to aid in quickly differentiating between joists, trusses, roof plane edges, etc. I know that can be handled by changing the layer/annoset once in the plan, but it adds another step to the process. Perry and Larry - are you using a different layer/annoset for working in the plan, than presentation view in the layout?
  10. There it is. I didn't realize it was changed back in X6.
  11. I think they may have changed the verbiage in X7. I'm seem to remember the "Print Images in Color", too.
  12. Spot on, Glenn. I have the settings exactly as you have, and everything looks great - right down to the preview...but when it saves the .pdf file, the .jpg files come out grayscale. Did you print the files you posted running Chief X7 Build 17.2.0.69?
  13. Brian - I submitted the plan through the Online Support Center. Thanks for your help!
