    If the engineer is having you do drawings then the engineer's fee should be lower. That's the way I work. You should charge more if the customer gets to pick the engineer. You never know what you will get.

    Can we create cabinet pulls like this?

    Thanks for sharing your investigative work Mark.

    Can we create cabinet pulls like this?

    Thanks so much for the tips. This is my first Style Pallet. It looks like a very powerful tool. I guess the easiest way to set these up is to open past plans & add the cabinets form them. Your suggested changes need to be made to the cabinets in the plan & then replace the pallet objects? If you replace the base Cabinet for example you need to go back to properties in the pallet & tweak settings? Perhaps I will have time this afternoon to experiment. BTW I will go back and adjust the drawer seperations as that was not my intent. Thanks again.

    Sorry for the late reply. I'll try the door symbol route.

    Simplifying Circuit Numbers

    I think the use of NOTE may be the answer. Although my system slows down when I use notes. Simply use the note number for the circuit number. with a different description for each circuit. You would need 2 tables 1st table remove the N from the Label prefix in the table descriptions Circuit 01 Circuit 02 2nd table change the Table Label prefix from N to E- Description Fan Master bedroom area

    R602.7.5 Supports for Headers

    This is a problem using a prescriptive method. They say this is code minimum but in a prescriptive table, they must cover worst-case (CYA) conditions. If you have a long enough wall segment that is designed as a "shearwall segment" it will prevent the racking at the garage opening & the additional king posts are not needed. You are better off asking the Engineer of record to design the portal frame and or shearwalls. The engineer overrides the prescriptive code table requirement.

    Library causes freezing

    OK those blocks do have a "Layout Page Table" in them.

    Library causes freezing

    I was able to reproduce the error & narrowed it down to two (so far) blocks with text. I will add it to my bug report.

    Library causes freezing

    No schedules in my library items but the first occurrence was when I use the copy material eyedropper in one plan, switch to another plan & tried to paste the material. Then in the same session in the library, I was selecting my folders. I'll see if I can reproduce the error.

    Steel Staircases

    This is a Beach house I did but did not get too detailed on the stair.

    I too have experienced problems with the catalog. Chief is up to date & windows 10 just did an update. I was able to "send the report" & continue working. Opened a support query at Chief.
