  1. Is it possible to reduce a home plan size from say, 3,000 sf incrementally to 2,500 sf by just shrinking the entire plan? I cannot get transform replicate to allow me to do it, it acts like it will but then makes no difference. Thoughts.
  2. I need to do an elevated deck and the client wants to look at a powder coated Pan Deck from underneath with a steel super structure. Has anyone found a 4" pan deck material? Thank you. Steve Senger
  3. Thank you for your help, I knew I was just missing something small, being able to look at the window specification did it. Thank you all again. Steve
  4. I am sure this is an easy problem, but for the life of me I am not finding it. I need to create a window that fits in a gable, peaked in the center, it will not match the roof pitch. It is for an as-built plan, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  5. Shift A Dims, does not erase or update, it just keeps adding more dimensions. is there a way for it to just update when Shift/A is used?

  7. X-14 The structural engineer wants me to raise the roof on my project 12" The roof framing is already built but does not follow the roof planes up the 12" I have always just needed to rebuild the roof, is there a way to raise all of the roof framing to match the new roof height. It sure seems like it ought to be an option. Thank you
  8. Thank you, I have been going crazy! I really appreciate the help. Steve
  9. I am in Mexico trying to finish up a project while on vacation. I have 1 less monitor and my library is loading on the lost monitor so I cannot see it. This has happened to me before when travelling but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to move it to one of the 2 I have. Can anyone help?
  10. This is crazy because I have done it before and cannot remember or find how to do it. I have symbols I have created and they are in my library but would like to add them to my toolbar for quick access and need help to do this. Thank you
  11. I am looking for a 3d board and batten in cedar to match the natural cedar bevel siding in X11, I am working in X12 but it should be fine. Does anyone have it, I have looked all over and not found one. I am doing a house in a resort and the exterior needs to be exact for the design review committee. Thank you
  12. I am using X-11 and doing some editing on an older (2 or 3 years) plan and the layout pages are black and white. When I print to PDF the color comes out but not on my computer. Tech support is closed today and I have looked all over. I know there must a button somewhere. Thank you for your help. Steve

  16. I would be open to talking to see if we could work together. I have been a custom and Remodel builder since 1976 and started doing my own design with Chief version 1. I quit building 4 years ago and have been full time design since. My number is 509-607-0300 and my website is www.stevesenger.com I am in Washington and in a small resort town in the mountains and have been working with Snow loads up to 270# so am familiar if that is an issue. Thank you
