    handrail elevation

    X9 I made a simple polyline solid as a concrete landing outside a restroom with the restroom floor the same elevation. When I put in a railing it was 6" above floor level. Can't seem to find a way to adjust the elevation of the railing.. This must be simple but....... Hope someone is willing to help the feeble minded. Thanks camp cazadero 10-22-17.pdf

    cad to layout problem and lost work

    Thanks chopsaw for responding. Alaska son invited me to call him and he helped me solve one of the biggest issues so that was a huge help. But as you can see I'm having a problem still converting an elevation to CAD. I attached a couple photos to show what's happening. Michael mentioned that I may have an object distant in the backgroung somewhere but I haven't found anything. J

    cad to layout problem and lost work

    Michael thanks for the help . The graphics card set up helped . It seems the computer is not freezing up so far and I was now able to get the CAD to layout but here's what happened when I converted to CAD from drawing. I've attached a couple phone shots here. When I convert from elevation shot to CAD I get window " calculating panel lines" and it takes a couple minutes to create the CAD view in the 2nd photo. A zillion lines that project into infinity. Any Ideas ? Thanks
  8. Ok this has cost me most of morning trying to figure out. I took an exterior elevation view converted it to cad and changed some details. When sent to layout it was huge. So huge I could not grab or find edit handles. then I'd get the swirling death ball and after several minutes my screen would just freeze. I could not get out of the program unless I shut down and ,of course ,lose my work I would .attach a file or screen shot but my computer is still frozen This happened 3 times and lucky me I have a spare computer so I can send this sos. Help would be greatly appreciated

    I imported a PDF of a CA plan into a new plan and found there was a lot of missing lines and details. Is this normal? Something I can do to improve the image? Thanks Jess

    adding to library

    X7 win 10 I want to make a detail drawing into a cad block and save it to my library. The instructions in the manual are easy to follow but the last step, which is to select the add to library tool. This shows,in the manual, as a couple books with a + sign . My library tool only will allow me to open the browser and when it is open a check mark appears next to row of books. Can't seem to get the + sign to come up. This has got to be simple but apparently so am I. help please . Thanks
