  1. Hi All, Kind of a general question but is there a generally accepted convention for symbol layer colors in existing vs new electrical and low voltage? Thanks in advance for any help
  2. Hi All, I'm working on a simple reflected ceiling plan. I've drawn the suspended ceiling using CAD lines, and now I'm trying to add ceiling lights. When I drop a 2x4 tube light onto the drawing, it's drawing behind the CAD lines. Ive opened both the object and the CAD line and set the former to drawing group 1 (front) and the latter to drawing group 39 (back) and it's still not displaying correctly. The CAD symbol for the light has an opaque fill, so it's not like its an issue of transparency. I'm lost here. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any help
  3. Awesome, thanks very much for the help
  4. I am using Chief Architect......? I'm sorry, I guess I don't understand the feedback.
  5. Hi All, I'm trying to free up some space on my drives and I've noticed that Chief leaves behind a lot of stuff from old versions even after an uninstall. In particular, the C:\Program Data\Chief Architect Premier Xx folders are several GB in size. Am I going to get in any trouble if I delete those, and are there any other big artifacts that you all know about that I might be able to get rid of? Thanks in advance for any help.
  6. Hey fellow Chief users, I work for a large residential builder and we have recently purchased Chief Architect to incorporate into our business. We are a custom/track home builder with numerous sets of blueprints. On our prints we have numerous plan options that our customers can choose from. Coming from AutoCAD, the person that ran it would have all of our plan options drawn on one layout and then cut and paste to add the options that the customer has selected and then make additional custom changes if needed. I've watched a few videos on the layers but I'm not really understanding if that is the route to go or there is a better way. For example I would like to essentially build multiple master bath layouts (moving walls, add and delete doors, change cabinets etc.) Is this something that others are doing? Thanks in advance
