    Cut Line

    I usually just use the "Cad detail from view" command, change the foundation lines to dashed, and then copy and paste in place over an earth fill:

    Adding watermark to render?

    What about converting all the images to a PDF and then doing it in Adobe?

    LIVE VIEW or PLOT LINES, which one do you use?

    I only use Plot Lines. I'm not sure if it's just me, but I find that when it comes to printing, Plot Lines appears to be cleaner than Live Views. Another nice benefit of using Plot Lines is being able to use the Edit Linework tool.
  4. You're correct - it should definitely be a negative number. I just randomly put a numerical value in there 1. I don't believe this can be done automatically - although I could be wrong! 2. In the defaults, you can highlight "grade level" and then select the remove button. See below. All was auto except for the average grade marker which I put in manually.

    Have you tried giving all the cells a white fill?

    Why is this plan so S L O W?

    I'll typically narrow it down by doing what Michael said above With your plan. I narrowed it down by randomly deleting a few architectural blocks at a time to see if it made a difference. Once narrowed down to 3 or 4, I simply deleted one at a time which eventually brought me to the robe hook & towel. I find that most of the time the slowdowns are caused by models that contain many faces (usually obtained from outside sources like sketchup, turbosquid etc)

    It appears as though the robe hook that's north of your toilet is the culprit. I'm guessing it's a custom symbol you downloaded externally? The model probably has many, many faces which is causing Chief to be painfully slow.
