  1. I need to free up hard-drive space and noticed that I still have the older versions of Chief "Program Data" files....how can I be proof positive that I have them all in X11? I migrated data when I upgraded each time...is it safe to assume that it is there? Hate to "assume" lol!!!
  2. Oh well, since I still had the file open I created a larger round and now it does look better I think! Thanks again all, love this Forum!
  3. Thanks all for the help! I think I got the jist of how to play with this now even though it looks like the Gable really needs to be likely a half round rather than a quarter round like the real McCoy.
  4. Tried the gutter but didn't work....tried creating a Tile and then slightly re-oriented it 3 degrees for proper overlap but I think I need to taper the tile so that it overlaps properly (top is fine but the front isn't)...anyone with ideas how to taper this singular tile??? Getting awfully close using the Distributed Object Tool and offsetting the object -3" from ceiling!!! P.S. I left it concrete color for visual clarity lol!!!
  5. Thanks all for the replies and effort put into them...I think I'll try your approach for now Rene, can't believe the Chief Boys haven't stepped up with a simple option for this after all these years....
  6. Getting tired of incorrect Tile Roof Gables, I've looked high and low and can't find any dialog boxes to make them look correct...is there a way to have the Trim Tile go over the edge like the pic or is this function still non-existent? Not really in the mood to create my own!

    Getting Frustrated with Contextual Menu

    Eric, sorry for the confusion and thanks with your patience with me....when I select the cabinet on the lower left with one left click then this dialog box opens before I can even move the cabinet so then I have to close the box and then move the cabinet.

    Getting Frustrated with Contextual Menu

    I don't recall having this issue in the past at all so yes, new problem. A single click to select an item (like when I want to move it) opens the dialog box which I then have to close. I have opened the context menu in an attempt to change the settings which affects this behavior but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

    Getting Frustrated with Contextual Menu

    Updated solver, thanks. joey_martin, I mentioned in my post that I have tried both of these setting on & off and it doesn't seem to make a difference.
  11. I've performed a search but haven't found anything....I have tried turning the "Contextual" button on & off and also selected "click-twice" in Preferences but I can't get the Program to enable me to just one-click on an item (e.g. wall, cabinet, etc) to move it without the dialog box ALWAYS opening.....where do I need to look to shut this off so that it takes a double click to do this?
  12. Thanks Glenn, guess I'm going to have to....just can't believe the Chief Guys haven't addressed this the simple way by allowing the rotate arrow to truly rotate like ever other CAD block. Everyone has been great pitching in, thanks guys!
  13. I know Michael but I was hopeful that X11 would fix this! Hopefully they'll take a look!
  14. Eric, another great idea but I'd like some rooms at a 45 degree angle as well!
