  1. that is a great solution.. however how to resize the actual box and spaces , the same as the real legend.. see screenshot.. i have the two side by side..
  2. sorrry spoke to early.. found it in the other object dbx.. there is 2 separate descriptions that populate into the schedules.. one in the "open symbol' box and one one in the "open object" dbx. I think CA should consolidate those 2 dbx .. it is confusing and both show similar data/options etc.
  3. @alaskan son, yes great idea.. but there are some kinks.. as shown in CJspud's screenshot.. i have same issue with item "www.wayfair........ " i have not found a way to change that name.. it reflects the URL for the wayfair item for some reason... I tried to change the name of the object in the 3d symbol dbx but it does not reflect in the schedule.. where is that information stored at to modify it?
  4. hi, ok i typed in "electrica" in the library browser and I see the generic Electrical Legend. But it does not have all of the symbols I am using (AFCI) and it shows different symbols that I am not using, and not the same symbols such as the chandeliers etc. How to make the true electrical legend that reflects the actual symbols in the plan? I was assuming it would auto populate like the schedules do...
  5. @evolution sorry I am not that advanced to create a signature.. I am using x9.. and when I go to Library tab I do not see 'electrical' option. another way to do this?
  6. Is there an automated method for creating an Electrical Legend (as shown in screenshot) ? or for creating any type of legend for that matter.. any help is appreciated...
  7. no because the sidewalk on the left is different angles.. not straight (can't see in the photo) and as far as I know, a regular sidewalk can not be in different shapes. there has to be some way to cut a curb in CA!
  8. Does anyone know how to cut a curb? I placed a polyline sidewalk and connected it to a road and the the curb apron does not build. (LEFT SIDE OF PHOTO) I placed a regular sidewalk and connected it to a road and the curb apron cuts pefect. (RIGHT SIDE OF PHOTO) any help would be great. Is there a manual way to cut a curb?
  9. how do you set it to grayscale on the layout?
  10. @javatom, how do you do that? @snestor,.. looks great.. but how come my "techinical illustration" view looks different? not talking about the shadows.
  11. how do i achieve this? anyone know? thanks
  12. this is the standard for elevation layouts of architecture... am i wrong?
  13. older version of Chief Architect used to be normal elevations in layout. When I say "normal" it is the standard of layouts to see elevations as such. Now it seems we have to adjust several settings to achieve this layout elevation view? it does not make sense. I appreciate the link but i really didn't see an exact answer. It would be easier to open Chief Architect X3 version ...
  14. ok so what settings do i adjust to get this exact look as in photo?
  15. I am trying to create an elevation view (same as shown in the image attached) however when I use the elevation view it opens to a vector elevation. Which setting will show the elevation exactly as shown in the image? thank you
