  1. Ah. Yes, you have to drag in the icons up from the customize toolbars menu on a mac... Thank you!! Other thread is deleted. I apologize for the mess!
  2. Same thing. I just get the small window with only the up arrow. I am working on Floor Level 0, but still can only go up
  3. Hi Everyone, I'm having trouble with not having the down arrow display on my tool palette. I'm able to use the hot keys as a workaround, but it would be ideal to have the visual button there to click on. See a screenshot below. Thanks!!
  4. Hi everyone. I am working on a house design that has some interesting angles in it and Chief is making things a bit difficult. The images below show the error I'm getting regarding off angle walls and what happens when I tell chief to ignore the off-angle wall. How can I resolve this? (.plan is uploaded in a zip file.)

    Hey folks. I'd like to learn how to use macros and how I can create my own simple custom macros. What's the best way to start? Not seeing much in the chief video library. Thanks!
  6. Hey folks - We have a layout file created for a project we've been working on. However, we now made some updates to our layout template and would like to use the new layout template for the existing layout file. Is there an easy way to switch these out?
  7. Why are dotted and dashed polylines always solid in the corners like this? Can I make it go away? I'd like to see the dashes extend into the corners.
  8. Hey folks. We just started using v14 and I sent my first floor plan to layout. However, once it is in layout, I can't select the layout box to resize it or manipulate it in anyway. See file attached. Update: I just restarted chief and I can now select it. What's up with that?! Orland Plan.layout
  9. Hey everyone, I've included an image here to refer to. Check out the layout file. It has an icon that is typically associated with Sketchup. This happened on another project, too. If I double click the file to open, it tries to open in Sketchup which obviously doesn't work. I am able to right click and "open with" chief and it works fine. But the question remains - why is this happening? Couldn't find any other mention of such a thing on this group. Anyone have any ideas?
  10. Nevermind - I figured out the rectangle. Question about file size still stands though.
  11. Hey folks - I have two questions... 1. I have a .plan file that is 120 MB so I can't upload it here. This doesn't seem normal right? What could I have done to make it so large?! It is a big house. But, even when I made a copy and stripped out a bunch of stuff, it only reduced the size to 117 MB. 2. Instead I'm attaching a PDF to explain my next question. There is a mystery rectangle that I can not select in order to delete it. I have tried turning all layers on and unlocking all the layers, but I still can't seem to select it! (It's the rectangle with yellow fill where the pool table is shown.) Thanks! To CA Forum.pdf
  12. The pdf file opened fine. But you inspired me to make a copy of the pdf and give it a new name. When I relinked to the new file from CA, it worked! Thanks!
  13. Also, whenever I try to import it again, it doesn't show up.
  14. I already checked that. The file is properly linked on my computer with no warning light. It is still not showing up though.
