  1. outlets should attach to every side of a cabinet using a surface mount outlet or you can place a railing wall behind the cabinet. sorry I just noticed you are using X10, I don't think they had surface mount elect yet, If I remember correctly there was a cabinet mount section. Back then I would just insert a cad block for that.
  2. i would do it using a note on the plans
  3. the problem may not look correct in preview mode but just go ahead and print it and see if it prints ok. that's how I do it.
  4. I use SnagIt 2022 paid version but not expensive. https://www.techsmith.com/
  5. the ceiling plane method will stop the walls on the first floor at the ceiling plane level. for the exterior walls to go to the 2nd floor stop the ceiling plane at the inside drywall, the exterior wall will continue to the upper floor joists. good for 2nd floor addition overbuilds. When I don't need the show the floor joists on the architectural sections I will use the single floor system method b/c the framing plans will show the different directions. Aproblem using the ceiling plane method is that it messes with your ceiling heights in the room label and you must set that msnually.
  6. You need the very latest update you can get from tech support; it just came out Wednesday. it fixed the printing problem for me.
  7. try an exterior framing layer for the batts, some people use that method.
  8. You could try a ceiling plane for the lower ceiling, the direction is controlled by the way you draw it. Use a ceiling hole if you have stairs
  9. try the .latest x14 update put out yesterday, Chief did a fix for screen scaling if it's over 100.
  10. open those railing walls and check bearing wall and the add footing tab then re-build the foundation
  11. Bottom of the footing will show in the auto story pole dims if you include it in the DBX
  12. thank you, sir, you are a breath of fresh air
  13. Anyone have the whats been fixed pdf? I forgot to save it.
