    You had us guessing on that one. :-)

    Foundation/Wall detail - Conc Skirt

    Thanks Mick I was thinking of lateral forces pushing inward on the stemwall... Hopefully Johnny will let us know... just curious. :-)
  3. Is that what the new X12 Style Pallette tool does? https://www.chiefarchitect.com/whats-new/

    Foundation/Wall detail - Conc Skirt

    Maybe it is being built in an area with expansive soil... but I would think the floor slab would take care of that problem???

    Why is the concrete stem wall offset on the footing?

    Specs on drawings, or in spec book

    I had to relabel all my layout sheets to match a bldg. dept's demand that all sheets follow their labeling protocol... or be rejected. Seems to me it would be easier if each bldg dept would just add their stamps of what the "required" information is that they want to the planset.
  7. Would blocking and saving your different kitchen layouts into your user library work for you?

    Hold harmless/Liability Exemption

    I have a clause saying the first option to resolve a difference in opinions is by using the small claims court system... fast and cheap, and no lawyers. If the amount is over the small claims court's limit, then we proceed to Binding Arbitration.

    I wonder if you could get Zoom to work for you...

    Hold harmless/Liability Exemption

    One of the mistakes I see repeatedly in small businesses is the self-employed "working for wages" without factoring in the total cost of being in business.

    You need to factor in the full benefit package.

    What does your lawyer suggest? Seeing how the average factory worker is getting $63/hr, you should price your services to make a profit.
  13. Sent you some information in message. Let me know if it helps...

    Is your default cabinet height set to 34 1/2 inches?

    Error message - extents of view unusually large

    Turn all layers on. Zoom extent. Marquee the perimeter and locate wayward objects.

    Existing barn to residence

    I was going to suggest using lighter fluid and a match... but Kbird’s 2nd suggestion would work better.

    Not that I know of.

    And all this time I have been concerned with whether it is Grey Poupon or Gray Poupon...
  21. Bob, have you tried using a finished layout to generate your saved plan views?
  22. Sounds like some are thinking this new tool is harder to implement and use than it really is. Think of it as a quicker, easier way of doing what you have already been doing.
  23. One more thing I think would help in productivity should be the ability to link a toolbar setup to certain SPV's. ie. Plot Plan View opens your Terrain Configuration Toolbar, the Electrical SPV opens your MEP Configuration, Kitchen SPV opens the Kitchen and Bath Design Toolbar Configuration. etc.
  24. Here’s a short video from Chief on SPV’s done 3 weeks ago:
