  1. Richard_Morrison's post in How To Turn Off Back Splash With Custom Counter Top? was marked as the answer   
    Yes, it's in the cabinet DBX, under backsplash. A cabinet can have a backsplash independently of the countertop.

    Change your "Room Label" text style to "transparent."

    The metals don't seem to have a JPG texture associated with them, and so render black. I suggest downloading the bonus catalog called Metal Materials, and trying one of those.
  4. Richard_Morrison's post in Bathroom tile patterns was marked as the answer   
    Tile patterns have always been a problem in Chief. I'd suggest that you just show things diagrammatically, maybe with a vignette of the tile pattern. I keep hoping, but maybe X9 will allow us to define the origin of a fill on a fill by fill basis.
  5. Richard_Morrison's post in Any way to purge file references in plan? was marked as the answer   
    Okay, so when prompted, I replaced those files with random image files that I had, and could delete those. Problem solved, though not very elegantly or intuitively.
  6. Richard_Morrison's post in Cut Plane Height was marked as the answer   
    No way to change height of cut plane, but you can turn off the windows layer. I'm not sure how you're saving drafting time, though.
  7. Richard_Morrison's post in Mudsill Showing was marked as the answer   
    Well, I figured it out after looking at a section. The wall was an existing wall, so I had defined it with an "air gap" main layer so that framing wouldn't build. As soon as I changed the main layer to "Fir", everything became normal. Here's how it builds with an air gap material. I don't know if this is a bug or not, but it's weird.
     
    Thanks, Perry, for that brick ledge trick, though. I seldom use brick, so I hadn't even noticed that.

  8. Richard_Morrison's post in Is Quadrant Input Messed Up? was marked as the answer   
    Well, I think I may have found my problem. The surveyor's boundaries had a typo, with a minute number over 60, that I was blindly trying to type in without thinking. (N79d 87'W) Once the minute number got under 60 (duh), everything worked. However, I guess I would have preferred an error message to just drawing the line at a horizontal angle but at the correct length.
