    Grade not showing correctly

    Terrain drawn on first floor and set to 21" below subfloor. I'm guessing your terrain modifiers are causing the problem.

    New computer transfer CA program woes

    Do you have the installation file for the older versions? If so, you should be able to install them, than copy your data files as needed. And I'm running Office 2003 without issue.

    New computer transfer CA program woes

    What sort of problems? How are you transferring? Have you checked the Knowledge Base -- I believe there is an article on doing this.

    Stairwell Issues

    Fix the railing default. Use Edit Area to copy the 2nd floor. Build>Floor>Delete Current Floor to delete the 2nd floor. Build a new blank 2nd floor. Paste/Hold Position to replace the 2nd floor. House2 (eric).zip

    Stairwell Issues

    For the problem room -- open it and set everything back to default on the Structure Panel. And ... Stairs work fine when placed elsewhere. Drawn where you show them the railing builds incorrectly. It looks like a normal interior wall but there is a railing inside.

    Shelf ceiling - how to finish edge?

    Good call Steve. Don't know why people monkey with these settings. Specifically, check that the wall used to define the shelf ceiling room is set to display. I typically use a Room Divider that's on the Walls, Room Divider layer.

    I've never see that problem. This is what I always get. Maybe post the plan?

    Orthographic Floor Overview won't match Plan

    Why use the Orthographic Floor Overview instead of the Perspective Floor Overview? The speakers might have a CAD Block problem. Attaching the plan file (close Chief first) might help with best suggestions.

    Window Trim

    X10 may not have this -- I don't remember. I wrote a macro that calculates the length of the material -- just (height+width)*2 Macro goes in Comment field and shows in Materials List. Chief does not understand jamb extensions so they need to be faked in 3D as shown above.

    Dormer problem and footing.

    Often will need to draw in your own walls. Roof planes? You can move them in plan -- select one an see the edit toolbar. You can use Reference Display to show as needed. Make sure the file is not open in Chief. Posting images (screen captures) will also help.
