  1. Chrisb, You were 100% correct. I needed to turn of that setting. It is labeled a little different in x7 but I found it under the General Camera default settings. Thats for the help!
  2. I'm creating some shelving details for this projecct that I'm working on and I'm using the cross section function. I like this feature because I can just modify the shelving and dimension it and without having to do it a line at a time like with a CAD detail. The problem that I'm experiencing is that the section callout is showing up on all my layer sets even if I have the layer which is "Camera" turned off for that layer set. This is a problem because it is cluttering up my electrical layer set. Is there a way turn these off for certain layer sets or do I have to just create a CAD Detail from the view? I'm atttaching some screenshots to illustrate. Also I am using X7. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  3. Thank you for the feedback. I will manually draw them in as you suggest DJP. Thank you
  4. I'm having issues with my walls not returning over a lower roof plane on a raised section of my home. When I try to extend the walls it shows up on my floorplan inside with brick which is not accurate. Does anyone know how to fix this?
  5. Eric, Thank you for the video. That worked to solve my problem. Thank you for the roof tip for the back patio as well. That was very helpful.
  6. Eric, I have made sure not to have Ignore Top Floor checked and it still creates the roof like the image that I provided. Do you think that it is because I am still using X7?
  7. Thanks for the advice Glenn. Regardless of whether I do trusses or not shouldn't the auto roof generate accurate roof planes without them going through my second floor?
  8. Glenn, I am using the auto-build roof function . I custom built the back patio and don't want it deleted so I check the following boxes in the image below. Eric, I am not manually drawing trusses. I am just selecting the Trusses box under the specifications section in the dialog box. Is that what you mean? As an FYI it does this whether I select trusses or not. Like I said I spent several hours last night systematically trying all the checkboxes to see if I was missing something but every time it builds the roof through my second floor.
  9. Hello, I want to add roof trusses to my plan and leave my manual roof but when I do it builds the wrap around porch roof through the 2nd floor as seen in the images. Is there a way around this or is there a setting I'm missing? I spent several hours yester testing different settings but could not come up with anything that would not build the roof through the 2nd floor. I am using X7. Thanks for your help. PJ_&_Krisha.plan
  10. Thanks, everyone. Sounds like I either need to do everything manually or just hide the attic walls. I appreciate you help on this issue.
  11. Thank you for your answer Dermot. I don't think David understood the question because he was messing with the unfinished roof for some reason in his video. I figured the walls popping up had something to do with the roof and after doing some research found out that it was indeed creating attic walls in certain locations. Just as an FYI I am using X7 Do you happen to know if there is a way to turn off the function that auto-generates those walls or at least a way to be selective about it? There were only 2 gable walls that needed to be created and the rest were all under the roof where the trusses would be and definitely aren't needed structurally. I'll attach the image of the 2nd level layout to show you the walls. Besides the walls that are created automatically, I am getting those few walls from the main floor that I showed in my original post that are extending up and jogging in weird spots. Would that be caused by the roof as well or is something else causing that? I use the dollhouse view to present layouts to clients and so I would like it to represent correctly. When I open up the properties of that closet on the main I get a message in the structure tab that says that the ceiling values may not be changed because the floor above has varying heights. I am not sure what is causing the error though.
  12. Hey, I need some help. Last night I autogenerated a roof to be able to show a client what the home would roughly look like with the roof on it. From doing so I now have 2 issues: issue 1 is that it autogenerated a bund of walls that I don't want or need inside the roof (I noticed this when I went to delete the roof to make some more adjustments). Issue 2 is when I tried to delete the roof to continue working on the plan, certain walls have now grown taller in certain areas and I can't get them to be normal walls again. I've tried deleting them and redrawing them but as soon as I put a wall back in that spot it extends up in those areas. I am sure I am probably just lacking some fundamental knowledge of how the roofs work and how it affects the walls. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks, PJ_&_Krisha.plan
  13. That was it Solver! Thanks for the easy fix!
  14. Here is the plan file. PJ_&_Krisha.plan
  15. Hello! I need some help. I am using X7 and I now have 2 plans where my ceiling is missing. I having the ceiling turned on in the properties but for some reason what I see when I do a camera view is just the underside of the sheathing for the 2nd floor. If you have any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong please help! Thanks!
