  1. I can't seem to find how to change the dimension tool default to another choice besides the "manual dimension" setting? Probably just me, but I tend to use the "tape measure" a lot more than the others.
  2. Yeah Doug, that's exactly what I meant, I know what it needs to do, just can't figure out how to draw it. I'll probably just cover it w/ a note also. I've attached a screen shot, between the gable (8:12 pitch sloping towards the left) and the shed roof (3:12 pitch sloping towards the rear), Is where I need the cricket.
  3. Does anyone know if it's possible (and how) to slope a roof plane in 2 directions? I need a cricket that slopes toward the left and towards the rear.
  4. Yeah, I've been playing around w/ the background w/ the new version, so I actually had quite a few layers I had to change. Now I know!
  5. Dang... I knew it had to be a setting somewhere, didn't even notice that. Thanks Dermot!
  6. I just noticed the same thing is happening w/ my door casing trim, door shows fine, but no casing in plan view only, shows up in all other views and prints fine same as the windows
  7. Ryan - The foundation walls layer is turned on (my CMU fill was not), but it is happening on all the floors, 1st floor and attic level
  8. I can see them in the referenced floors and they will print, just won't show up in the plan
  9. Yeah Robert, I'm not sure what is going on. If I open my plan or the one I attached they don't show up.
  10. I'm not sure why my windows won't show up plan view. I can click on the openings and they show up in the dialogue box and also in camera views, so I know they are in there, just can't see them. 1502294526_21-012CrownResidence.plan
  11. "Just Install Chief On the new Computer and then use Your Digital Locker to "make available" ( deactivates old computer license) and then enter your Code ( available in the Digital locker ) on the new Computer to activate it." Mick - I can deactivate it (and reactivate it) but there is nothing in my digital locker, do you think this is a technical issue?
  12. I'm confussed on how to tranfer my license to a new computer, I have always had my files on an external hard drive, is this something I shouldn't do? My saved backups are saved on to my hard drive, which I eventually move to my external hardrive. To transfer my license do I need to use Backup Entire Plan tool to save ALL of my files? or should I move my saved files from my external drive to my hard drive to avoid any file coruption and/or data loss and be able to contiue working on my projects? "Do note that plan and layout files that were designed and saved on one computer will need to be transferred to the secondary computer if you'd like to continue working on them. Consider utilizing the Backup Entire Plan/Project tool prior to transferring Chief Architect files between computers.""It's also important to remember to only work on plan and layout files that are saved on your local machine's hard drive. Working on files over a network server, external hard drive, cloud storage service, or USB flash drive type device is not recommended, as file corruption and data loss can occur."
  13. I have a 8' ceiling second floor that cantilevers 2' out over the first floor that has a 10' ceiling, also on the first floor I have a front covered porch that I want to have a 9' flat ceiling. When I lower the porch ceiling it also lower my second floor because of the space below the cantilever, is there any way to do this w/o lowering the foor above? Plan is posted. 21-012 Crown Residence.plan
  14. I'm looking to upgrade my whole system and wondering if anyone uses any Raid storage? Raid1 or Raid5? Is it worth the upgrade and what are pros & cons?
  15. Does anyone know if you can (or how you can) save down a drawing created w/ a newer version to an older version?
