  15. Does anyone have a favorite light data setting for their recessed lighting? I am trying to create a better PBR rendering by changing the light data settings. Attached is a PBR of what I am working on. Just not happy with how it is lighting. I attached an image of my rendering and light data settings. Any help is appreciated! Susan

  22. I am really struggling with sending elevations to layout. It is super slow to resize and the auto dimensions aren't always working. I had created the file in X13 could this be an issue? Also I have an elevation that is "remembering" items I have deleted. Attached is the picture of the elevation.
