    How to: "Which layer sets contain a particular layer?"

    Yes, you will need to check all CAD Details and Cross Sections, as well the plans
  2. Before I submit this as a suggestion, have I missed a way to automatically have walls frame to the bottom of lookouts? Currently, there is a full depth rafter put at the exterior face of framing and lookouts are notched into this. Generally, I would prefer that the top plates be at the bottom of the lookouts and omit the last notched rafter. I can futz around and get this, but hoping there's an easier way.
  3. You may be happier with a single wall trimmed by an invisible wall at an angle, with the shorter "wall" created by a polyline solid.

    2018 IBC/IRC Adoption

    Why do you laugh? It's used in countries outside of the U.S.
  5. It could be a corrupted symbol, too.

    Phantom BS (Back Splash) no politics involved

    One way to get rid of it is to go to your cabinet defaults, turn on backsplash, and set default height to 0".

    Crawlspace Vents?

    This is obviously an OLD thread. Have any of you discovered solutions for the display of these 3D crawlspace vents, other than the pony wall solution, possibly with the advent of new features in the interim?

    Where are the old doors

    I think that these were eliminated since we have more flexibility with the glass panel door being able to have different non-uniform panel frame widths. It would be great if you could add your version to your signature. This is one of those questions where the version really matters.

    Microsoft Surface

    I guess that was a little imprecise. I was referring to any view that is using OpenGL. There is a significantly longer delay with the initial generation, but after the view generates, you can spin it just fine.

    Microsoft Surface

    I have a Surface Pro 6 - i7 w/16 GB RAM. For everything except rendering it's great. If you can stick to vector views, it's very fast. As mentioned above, for regular work, you will want a larger secondary monitor. It can do rendering just fine, but nowhere close to a dedicated graphics card.

    This has been happening for many years. Files, screen shots, and bug reports have been submitted. Tech support apparently has been unable to reproduce this, and therefore nothing has been done. The best they've been able to come up with is likely a display "scaling setting" causing this when it is other than 100%. Welcome to the club.

    I Need to show door swing direction in door label

    Also, keep in mind that what appears to be a left hand door could be a right hand reverse. They are not the same and I'm not sure Chief is smart enough to know the difference. This could be an issue if door edges are beveled or if you are ordering hardware with a key.

    WORKSHOP this Friday at 3:00 pm PST

    Or you could log in with an iPad or even just a smartphone, I think.

    So, about the time that the mortgage calculator got added.

    Glad I wasn’t the only one who missed this. Not sure when this got slipped in. Thanks, Michael.
