  1. .... it would have helped to spell zeros correctly. Its about hour 14 of my work day so I am burning out. Thank you for the help.
  2. Yes, I can. It is doing everything I want except it is dropping that trailing zero. I believe someone on here shows one using show_leading_zero and it worked but show_trailing_zero doesn't.
  3. I have made a simple macro to show the ceiling height for a selected room. It is not showing the trailing zero. I am attaching my macro below. Any thoughts? height = room.finished_ceiling_elevation - room.finished_floor_elevation nf = NumberFormatter.new nf.unit = "'-\"" nf.use_fractions = true nf.apply (height)
  4. I have been a draftsman for 16 years and ran a home design business for the last 8. I also just opened my own cabinet shop where I handle the design work. I can tell you there are better options for cabinet drawings. Mozaik, KCD, eCabinets, Cabinet Vision. These will give you cut lists and door/drawer sizes for production or ordering. I used Chief momentarily to knock out some renderings fast, but it is definitely not a long term solution. I have run eCabinets for 4 years for production cabinetry and am in the process of switching to KCD. I would definitely look in to some of the options I mentioned above to help improve effeciency.
  5. I just installed X13 and have been previously running X12 for the past year or so. I am aware of the new rendering requirements and I am ok with no ray tracing and things like that. Basic elevations would be handy for the time being. I am on the hunt for a GTX 960 video card locally. I was not expecting to have to upgrade video cards at this time.
  6. Everything was working great on X12. Same system other than upgrading to 16gb of memory and putting a 500 gb solid state drive in. I will try to give tech support a call tomorrow and see what can be done or needs to be done.
  7. I am attaching (2) photos below with the specs to my video card and my system. I am getting the error at start up that says I can't create 3d views due to my card not being supported. I believe it meets the minimum specs so I am not sure where else to look.
  8. Is there a way to center justify the auto label for elevations/plans that are on the layout page? To further explain, I use the automatic label and the box scale macros but I would like to center justify them. I didn't see a way to do that, but I may be overlooking it.
  9. Late to the party, but I am about 30 min. from Dothan. I have been using X12 for a while.
  10. What has everyone been doing for displaying plumbing fixtures on the 0 floor? I had been dong a copy/paste hold location setup. Is there a better way to do this?
  11. I needed to line up a manual dimension with an automatic dimension for some scenarios. I just don't like where it puts some of the auto dimensions. A designer I am working with now wants all of the dimensions to line up on each view so that there is continuity between the sheets. I just wanted to have an easy/quick way to ensure they line up.
  12. I have an odd situation. I need to snap to the end of a dimension line. I checked my snap preferences. I am not sure this is a capability, but maybe someone has a solution. I have been just trying to line the crosshairs on my pointer to line up with the dimension/extension lines. Slow but it works.
  13. The architect I am moonlighting for wants the title sheet to be rotated 90° to the rest of the sheets. I am not sure this is possible without creating a new layout just to have the title sheet be in the correct orientation. Is this an accurate assumption?
  14. I am, but all of the electrical symbols appear to be small. For example the smoke detector 2d symbol, the door chime 2d symbol.
  15. Hey everybody. I am learning a lot in Chief Premier x12 and I am amazed I didn't make this switch sooner. I have a question regarding resizing the 2d symbols for electrical plan. They seem small but I am not 100% sure how to adjust it.
