    Layout error?

    Its all about "saved plan views". IF you haven't already take a look at Rene's suggestion and I believe you'll find your answer.

    Lead Light

    Please update your signature and include your computer info as that helps the guys like Chop respond and even quicker if you can post your plan too. See this thread for the signature help: https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/topic/18908-signature-here-at-chief-talk

    Join Roof Planes creates extra handles?

    to add to what Eric said, it would also cut down the "down time" for the guy's who want to help if you could post the plan as well

    Auto Dormer Wall & Ceiling

    Lou you said you don't post often, but it would be great if you updated your signature (for the future if you do post) as Eric suggested and if you include your hardware info that would also be of help to the guys who take their time to help us solve our issues. This link will help you do that. https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/topic/18908-signature-here-at-chief-talk

    Convert Chief Designer plan to Chief Architect Plan

    Lauren, explain technical difficulties, even better post the CA X11 plan file so the forum can "see" what's going on. As far as the wall colors not being the same, when you opened the plan in X11, did you save the designer plan, then open it with X11? You may need to open the wall type in X11 and reset the wall fill colors?

    3D scanning

    Welcome to the forum. It would be helpful if you'd update your signature and include what Version of Chief you're currently using. Assuming you are using CA software. You can open your profile go to account settings click on that and another menu will open with Signature select that and update. If you plan on using the forum for help be sure to include your computer info too as that will also help the responders. Did you search the forum for 3D Scanners etc.? Here is a link to a similar post see if there is anything there to help?

    X12 BETA Now Available To Public...

    My SSA automatically renews Feb 2020, for another full year; there is no upgrade button for me to hit in my Digital locker? That's really ok for me though, I hate the thought of having to migrate all my libraries over. I'm the only one on the forum I know that has so much trouble doing the migrate

    X12 BETA Now Available To Public...

    I understand, so that means your current license was about to expire? You renewed roughly a week before the release? I'm not sales etc., so if it doesn't show up and you think your due the Beta to use give customer service a call?

    X12 BETA Now Available To Public...

    Not sure but I think you have to be paid at least 2 months prior to its release? I'm paid SSA through Feb 24 2020 and SSA auto renews, but its not in my Locker either.

    Can blue print pdf be loaded for changes?

    First welcome to the forum. It would be very helpful, if you update your signature with the CA software version you are using, as variations from one vs to the other may affect the answer. Here is a link to how to: https//chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/topic/18908-signature-here-at-chief-talk Also include computer info would be helpful for those who might respond. If you have a PDF file of a plan, then you open a new plan, >import>pdf and then you can trace over. I know there are programs that can convert PDF to .DWG or .DWF files, but if you don't or can't, then the trace over is the way to go. https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-00018/tracing-over-an-imported-file-to-create-a-3d-floorplan.html Chop is suggesting if you can get the original file of the plan that was drawn using CA, then ask for the complete back up. If you're new, to CA you may not understand so go to the help files and search for saving files importing / exporting files etc.

    interior condition

    Only way I could fix it was to reverse the wall layers, did you paint the wall to change the siding to drywall? It didn't look like it but I didn't know why reversing the wall layer would correct the intersection of the walls. Walls_interior_and_out_1_14.20_3.45pm_Fix.plan

    Indoor swimming pool

    If you don' t have the pool symbol in your library files, you can probably find something in the 3D on line warehouse.

    Apparently he didn't save and close the plan file before he zipped it and uploaded to the forum.
