  1. SNestor's post in What is this little slice in my wall? was marked as the answer   
    You are using an "elevation" camera which will show everything to "infinity"....I think what you are seeing is the top portion of the 1x gutter fascia. You may want to use a "back clipped" section camera...it shows things from the start of the camera to the end point you drag to. 
     
    If you turn on the layer "framing, wall" in the camera view layer set (and you build wall framing) you won't see that piece because the studs in front of it will block it. 
    see screen clip below...this is your camera with "Framing, wall" turned on the camera view layer set.

    On the foundation level (Level 0) select the three foundation walls at the Garage. Change the wall type to a 10" (or larger if you want) conc. stem wall. Just make a copy of the current stem wall...change the name and the width. 
     

     
  4. SNestor's post in Screen Material Scale on Door & Window was marked as the answer   
    I agree with Mick...there is some issue with the door you placed. 
     
    So...just change the door to the standard glass panel door...and change the material to screen. Also...you should edit the "pattern" in the material so it looks correct in Vector view. I've attached a couple screen clips.

    @BuilderP
    Open the room just to the north of the lower deck...the room with the kitchen. In this room...change the "slab pour" number back to #1.  That'll fix it. 
  6. SNestor's post in Roof Marker and Text Size was marked as the answer   
    Change the text style in the "roof label" layer.  I'm guessing but you probably annotated your roof plan at 1/4" and sent to layout at 1/8". You need to make the roof label text 2X (or thereabouts) larger than the 1/4" text style. 
     
    Just sent you a video...

    Somtimes the simplest fix is to move the grip handle via the "resize about" control in General Wall Defaults to the inner surface. 
     
     
     
  8. SNestor's post in Dropping slab for porch/patio? was marked as the answer   
    First...open defaults, go to FLOORS AND ROOMS>FLOOR LEVELS>FLOOR 0. Make sure you set "Floor to SWT" to "0"
     
    For the patio, First Floor level, you need to set the "Stem Wall Top" to -1.5" so that it matches the floor.
    If you make this change on the foundation level...you need to place -1.5" for the "ceiling"

    @bdammeyer - I posted a fixed plan above.

    It can be done...
    I used an invisible wall to create the room that extends beyound the face of your brick entry wall. I did make a new wall type (a copy of brick-4). In this new wall I adjusted the brick ledge depth to zero. I also specified to build the platform (the concrete floor) to the brick layer.  The new "room" has no ceiling or roof specified. 
     
    Rooms are the key...they control most everything in Chief.

    Don't use a roof plane. Just build another balcony room using railing walls. Use a molding polyline for the gutter. 
     

  14. SNestor's post in No Shaft in Porch Skylight w/Flat Ceiling was marked as the answer   
    Not totally sure what the issue is...but, I deleted the deck roof. Redrew the roof and placed a new skylight and it worked fine.

    As Eric suggests with his post...you don't HAVE to redraw the roofs to make the fix. I'd probable redraw them as one error still remains...

    It's time for you to upgrade...I did this for you in X8 but...it was like pulling teeth. 
    You should open the plan and examine what I did...it can be done, but it's so much easier in X14 (even X12 or 13).

  20. SNestor's post in Skirt Roof - Fascia Not Showing was marked as the answer   
    @EmmaCox - You should be able to use auto roof return. This option is in the wall edit dialogue. See screen clip. 
    I can't comment on whether this "glitch" is due to the plan being started in a previous version...but, a simple roof return as you show in your screen clip should work in X14.
