    Great tip! I'm watching the video CJSpud kindly mentioned and after I'll see how CA puts a roof on it. Thanks!

    Are you saying to change it to ABSOLUTE? I did and it no longer dropped. Can't figure out why the left one dropped but not the right. Same numbers.
  5. I am seeking further clarification on this topic. Here's my question. The rule seems to be (select the line you want to move then select the dimension of the line whose length you're modifying.) So in the example below if I want to lengthen C, I first select B then it B will move left wrt C. But does the B moving left wrt C also take A with it or does A length shorten wrt B to keep the start of A the same? I think it does. If the latter do I need to multi-select both A and B first before selecting the dimension of C so both A and B will move to the left wrt C when I lengthen C? If draw a selection box around A and B and then increase the length of C, I get a gap between B and C. I'v had this problem since day one, even if work clockwise or counter-clockwise. I always have dims change on me.

    Creating elliptical arched entry on a bump out using a door .

    I found that only works in a cross-section view, but it does work! Thanks much.
  7. This was the recommended method by a forum member. Previously, I was creating the arch in another software, importing and positioning. I'm practicing the advised technique but hit a tiny snag. In order to create empty space to place columns under the arch heel, I selected the wall and placed a cut point then pulled the wall section up. This should work but how do I precisely do the same thing on the left side. My snaps are not snapping. If there is a better way to remove wall under th arch heel, I'd like to find out. Thanks! drag wall up.plan

    Dimensioning so previously dim'd don't move

    Yes. TeamViewer.
  9. Try changing the niche wall back color to black and it moves down behind the lower pony wall. Strange. Can color affect position? flusho base molding test.plan
  10. I know how to change them for each new plan but is there a way to change them so when I create a new plan the changes are there? I looked in preferences and default settings. Thanks!

    Permanent changes to wall fill and line types

    Yes, delete everything in my plan before saving as a template. Thanls much1

    Permanent changes to wall fill and line types

    What if I delete my plan and save it on the template directory as a plan. Then I can pick it from open template. Is that any diff than doing exports?

    Thanks for eveyone's input. I'll need to get a live tutor to resolve this.

    Maybe I should just use autodimensioning.

    Did everyone here starting out need a live tutor?

    Dimensioning so previously dim'd don't move

    Not sure what reversing walls has to do with dimensioning, but I'll take your word for it. Is there a way to zoom in while dragging out a dimension so when I get to the end I don't have to guess where it snapped to?

    Dimensioning so previously dim'd don't move

    Par of the issue is that each wall segment has three exterior extents that could be dimensioned to. I have to zoom in to make sure I am on the right one but if I'm not I can't move it to the right one without zooming out again. Luckily for me I can afford to be off by a couple of inches but I'd love to be able to do it right.

    Clearly, I'm doing things incorrectly. I'm trying to find a way that can work. One way is fine. But I have soooooo many problems getting a simple layout to be correct.

    Dimensioning so previously dim'd don't move

    Here is a simple example. For the 24' 0 5/16 dim, I cannot select it by first selecting the vertical walls to its left or right. I can get to the dim only by first selecting the line itself. But what if I want the wall to its right to move? Also, top horiz dim total does not equal bottom horiz dim total. Off by 1/2". These are just two of the many issues preventing me from a clean layout, dimensioned correctly.

    Dimensioning so previously dim'd don't move

    Is the a video of someone fully dimensioning a house showing every step and leaving out none? My dimensions change and my horizontal top nevers equal my horizontal bottom. And my vertical left never equals my horizontal bottom. If I could achieve this I could lock the layer and move on.

    Dimensioning so previously dim'd don't move

    Suggestion: I believe it would be so simple for CA to add a 'right click-lock' to each section of wall...like this. Create first wall section. Dimension it. Lock it. Create section wall section. Dimension it. Lock it. Create third wall section. Dimension it. Lock it. ... Create last wall section. Dimension it. Lock it. Then there could never be dimensions changing on you.
