    Snapping problem

    You're all correct, but why doesn't it snap? The whole purpose of snapping is so you don't have to zoom in to infinity to find two points mm from each other. I noticed that when I get close to dragging an endpoint to another, if a square appears, it will snap. If a circle appears, it drops it close, but not snap. I even increased my snapping pixel distance, but no joy. Spent several hours carefully rejoining everything.

    Snapping problem

    Dermont, THanks for the input. I have been trying to convert and edit and back again. I don't understand or see a difference in the convert "object" as opposed to plain. The road does convert to plain and then back to a road. Even when a polyline plain, when I drag the large diamond endpoint to another endpoint, the large diamond disappears from the end of a segment, and now a small diamond (like the mid-points) is at the intersection between the merged segments. I was hoping someone else came across this before engaging tech support. If not, I will share my results to hopefully helps others that may come across this someday.

    Snapping problem

    I can't seem to do that. This is a road perimeter or median perimeter. This could still be a glitch, but I cannot snap even when converted to a polyline or back again.

    Snapping problem

    X12 I'm creating a master plan that has roads and large parking areas. I created roads and joined them. That creates polyline. Those polylines do not allow for easy adjustment. When I click and drag line segment endpoint to join it with an adjacent endpoint, it never snaps and joins. Instead it moves it very close. Zoom in. Click and drag even closer. Still not joined. Zoom all the way to max and it is not joined. I have all snaps turned on. When dropping, the "x" at the cursor get a circle....which I thought meant that a snap would then happen. I also noticed that at times I don't have the larger diamond at the end of a segment. Instead there are small diamonds at the end of a segment, and those don't drag well. Does this sound familiar to anyone with an easy fix? In a parking lot, if I create a median and edit it, there is no problem and everything works fine. I'm hoping that I don't have to start the whole road and parking over again as this is a glitch.
  5. Just a thank you to everyone on this thread. Really, this question should be asked and answered every 6 months. I'm upgrading my system now and already did the research and came to almost the exact same equipment list. It will be a little cheaper now than 7 months ago, of course, but I feel those items are still the best bang for the buck. Can I just ask after 7 months if there is anything that is not quite up to the task or anything you would have purchased instead?
  6. I thought I saw a post once that described how to do this, but I can't find it now. I suppose I could take a day or two trying to figure this out, but perhaps it would only take someone a few minutes to explain or link? I need to make the lintels in the image attached. Doesn't have to be exact, but something close? How?

    Chief to 3D printer

    I got a Prusa 3MKs with the MMU 2s multicolor. I would suggest Prusa, since most everyone else out there tries to imitate them and use their parts. You should be fairly technically inclined and be ready to spend a lot of time getting used to the different materials, settings, speeds, adjustments, fine-tuning, etc....I spent my first month replicating Brio track parts and making and designing my own with Fusion 360. I'm now ready to work on the more technical aspects of printing from CA. Don't expect it to be that you plug it in, export from CA and off you go. This will take many, many hours of time to do. Up to everyone to know if you have the time or should simply pay others to do it for you.

    RV or Motorhomes

    Has anyone created a motorhome or RV trailer (class A or 5th wheel) that they would be willing to share. I'm working with a non-profit that need to put in RV parking for volunteers. Would like to show vehicles in those spaces. Thanks!!

    Change plant object to different "type"

    Sorry, I really should have stated X4 options. Yes, architectural block to library. Just any plant from the library that is an image. In X4, it appears to be hardcoded in the specs box to set the height above ground. Don't see any other option. I'm assuming I need to export it and then bring it in as a common object that can have a setting above floor. Just don't know how.
  10. X4. I have added a group of items to the library as a single component to be placed. It has soffits, and plants in a vertical arrangement. Problem is when placing this on the edge of a deck, the plants want to be at a distance off the ground, while the soffits adjust to the height above the floor. Is there a way to make the plants "not plants" so they will also be "above floor" as opposed to "above ground"? Tried looking for a way to export and import as I like, but not sure what will still give me the plant image and not just a CAD looking outline of a plant.

    Saving screen layout with multiple monitors

    I simply stretch my main program window out really wide and have the individual windows inside that spanning a single display at a time. I guess the answer is they still really haven't done anything with this. Bummer! What a pain to have to reset everything every time when the file config should be able to keep record of the window layout and adjust if window size changes. This happens with HTML quite easily. They could figure it out.
  12. It's been a while since I've been here and haven't been using X4 in a long time. I'm now with 4 monitors running the program and starting a new plan. After only a couple days, I'm already annoyed that each time I save and then reload the program, the window opens up across my monitors, but only the floor plan is opened and stretched across all displays. I must resize, re-open, reposition everything back to where I had them when I saved the file. I had different windows in different locations set up in the way I like to work (camera angles, overviews, libraries, etc...). I'm having trouble searching for an answer for this since "windows" means two different things in the program and the physical one is most prevalent. Can any answer this for me or point me to a thread they've seen/written? Thanks!
