    Construction Set Sequence

    Plan revisions is the way I have always gone. It gives you the history, a place to go back to if you have a disaster, or the client changes their mind back to plan 1. Just had that happen this week, did a major redesign then got a call "we want to go back to the original brief". It just cost them the extra redesign time, as all I did was open the last original design did a save as and kept working from where I was.

    Post footing on the foundation plan

    Joey I think the OP may be talking about a post not a deck pile. the auto frame deck pile footings show up on level 0, but now place a post and footing manually. BOTH the post and the footing show on level 1.

    Disappearing Toolbars ! H E L P !

    Great we have established it happens regularly on the mac platform. therefore the 'bug' as that is what it is needs to be lodged in the bug reporting app on the website with all the relevant info. then it can at least be investigated properly. And Maybe fixed at some time.

    Disappearing Toolbars ! H E L P !

    Is this a Mac thing? I dont ever recall seeing the problem in 20 years. You have done all the things I would have done to get them back.

    numbering different plan check response revisions

    I would make changes with consecutive numbers in the triangle. the highest number would be my drawing revision. But if I am answering all of the building dept questions at the same time this would all be one number and my revision schedule would reflect this. my revisions do not differentiate who initiated them. just r1 , r2 etc.

    Post your file for others to try. That will either find the problem or eliminate CA so you will know it is a local problem. I have no problem printing when I send the correct information.

    Cantilevered trusses

    why not just adjust the baseline height, you know top of plate you should know the vertical depth of framing (tells you in the db) Add whatever extra heel height reqd. Then when you draw a truss it will extend the bottom chord to form the soffit on top of the plate. Or am I imagining something else. we only use trusses here. no pitching of roofs except when using rafters.
