  1. Thought you can't buy a used license anymore. New rule from C.A. ??
  2. Hi All, Getting my head around X16 and trying to adjust wall framing to include wall bridging (horizontal wall nogging here in NZ) with spacing between rows at 800mm. Additionally, we generally us a 2nd top plate 140x35 to attach ceiling lining edge to. I know I can manually adjust individual wall frames but time consuming. Anyone in Aus / NZ managed to sort this out?
  3. Thanks Steve, Will just persevere methinks. Will give me another mind exercise on the way ! . Will certainly look at Macmost
  4. Morning Chris, (here) Was thinking the same thing last night. I see on your moniker that you're operating on a Mac Studio. Did you come over from Windows? or have you always been a Mac user?
  5. Hi MTHD, operating with M2 Pro chip, 32GB memory, 12 core. Wouldn't have thought that would make a difference?
  6. Hi All, Using my new Macbook Pro M2 with Chief X15 loaded but being long in the tooth, finding difficulty accepting the slightly different format from Windows 10 which I've been using for yeeaaarrs ! So installed parallels and downloaded Windows 11 onto my Mac to operate Chief with Windows 11. is anyone else out there doing this? I tried reinstalling Chief onto Windows 11 (in windows format from my digital locker) but when trying to open on the Mac (Windows 11) I get an error message saying the graphics card isn't strong enough and won't produce 3D views. If I have Chief X15 installed on the Mac side, is there a way to open the program on the Windows side? All comments and advice gratefully accepted
  7. Hi All, Anyone still using good PDF to DWG converters? Am finding PDF files loading up my Layout file considerably.. But you already know this,.. right?
  8. Hi All, I'm a windows 10 user on my desktop and trying to convert myself to my new MBP - challenging.. I can't get enough speed out of my apple magic mouse to match my Razer Abyssus on my desktop. What do other MBP M2 users out there chase their screen pointer with? And are you happy with the speed?
  9. Hi Dermot, Got that. Thanks for the assist
  10. Hi All, Trying to adjust a pair of exterior French doors with door larger than the other. I assume the adjustment will be the custom button which is not activated so can't select it. Any thoughts?
  11. Hey Luke, got mine on order! won't be able to comment for a couple of weeks yet. Thought they were being released today ?
  12. Hi There, Didn't think the Macbook pro could do a raytrace. Have just ordered a new Macbook pro 16" with M2 chip and wasn't expecting it to raytrace. Other Macbook pro users out there.. am I correct? or can you raytrace..
  13. Hi Ryan, Yes, agree with that. I noticed that your MB runs on 16GB memory. Happy with that? Was considering 64GB but probably stick with 32GB as a maxed-out option is verrry expensive here in NZ
  14. Thanks HT, I'm actually going to use it as a backup and out of office machine
  15. Thanks HT, Good info there. Weight issue not too important. Was considering going down to a 14 inch to save a bit on cost
  16. Hi All, Will be upgrading my current laptop soon. Going from Surface book 2 to a MacBook Pro 16inch with M2 chip and considering the Max chip. Has anyone recently upgraded to a MacBook Pro? Would be intereted to hear thoughts before committing. Cheers, Andy Smith
  17. Hi All, Is there a way to setthe roof cladding so it overhangs the fascia 50 - 60mm?
  18. Thanks Chopsaw, Eric, Will update my signature now.. Andy
  19. Morning All from sunny New Zealand, I have an issue with text arrows disappearing from detail. Happens when detail is blocked then when exploded arrows disappear! Any thoughts? Am thinking a corrupted file somehow..
  20. Well done Eric. That's the problem. Thanks All !!
  21. Aaarr lads! Appreciate the quick response. Unfortunately, neither working for me. Do I need to set this up somewher?
  22. Hi All, Does anyone know how to access a diameter symbol / character on a text situation? You know - the symbol 0 with a diagonal line across it?
