    ceiling heights

    I'm trying to change the height of my Great room from 97 1/8" (default) to 121 1/8". How do you change ceiling height of a single room without changing the height in all the rooms? All my rooms are defined by walls and have a defined attic space above.

    Importing a .dwg title block in to CA

    Hi All, I'm trying to import .dwg title block file in to CA, of course you can only import a .dwg file in to plan view. Does anyone know of way to get the file in scale and in to a layout view?

    object snaps

    Trying to get a rectangular polyline center point to snap perpendicular to a cad line? I thought you could press the cresponding key ( ], for perpendicular), but I can't seem to get it to work, I can only snap to end points.

    object snaps

    Is there a trick to use a specific snap (i.e end point only center only, perpendicular only)? I can never get any thing to snap perpendicular, like trying to get a rectangular polyline to snap perpendicular to a cad line?

    Speed of Chief

    I use a lot of notes in my plans, usually created in Microsoft word. Is there is way to save a word file to jpeg or maybe something else that wouldn't bog it sown so much?

    different ceiling heights

    All my rooms are already defined by walls, when I raise the one I want to, all the rooms raise.
