    Previewing layout Sheets

    I hope this is me being the nut-behind-the-wheel, because if not, this is annoying. When you open the print dialog box, it automatically Previews the entire drawing set, even if all you really want to do is print one page. What's u[ with that?

    Schedules and List of Materials

    The objective is to import the Material List into the databases. This is proving to be a multiple cut and paste process, because the data needed for filtering, and grouping, is not contained entirely in either the Schedules or the Material Lists. I will report the progress here or on the Chief group on Facebook.

    Schedules and List of Materials

    Hey Guys, Is there a way to include the "Category" as a column in the Custom Schedule? In the Material List there is not a heading for "Room Name" and in the Custom Schedule there is "Room Name", but no way to categorize them list. Any ideas? Thanks,

    Material Lists Tips and Tricks

    We're in the same boat. I think ultimately I will have to use multiple exports. You can click the upper left corner of the List and copy it and paste it into Excel. The same applies to the Schedules, click and copy to paste into Excel.

    Schedules and List of Materials

    UIpdate: The Number column in Schedules is equivalent to the ID column in the Material List. When this number is displayed in a category specific Schedule it follows the ID designation. When they are displayed in the Custom Schedule they have the designation it makes them all start with a "G"

    Previewing layout Sheets

    True, but only after it goes through every sheet prior to alloying changes to the print options. I'm hoping to disable this feature until the which sheet to print has been selected.

    I'm referring to the print dialog box not the individual layouts. Does your suggestion still apply? Thanks.

    3 Way Switch Between Floors - Stairs

    I modified the Square Recessed Light to be a Note. I turned the lumens off (custom set to zero) with labels "To Floor Above" and "To Floor Below"
  10. In this video Scott uses the Alt Key to get the "Landing" section to curve. It doesn't do that for me at all. It simply pivots the starting point. And Ideas? Thanks https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/394/creating-winder-stairs.html?playlist=89

    Alt Key to Curve Stairs for Winders

    Never-mind. He is going back and selecting the second set of stairs, not drawing it. The video was edited a little early.

    Is it possible to display a reference in a layout page?

    References in Layout

    Hey Eric, Thanks for trying to help. It turns our that if you have sent a plan view to the layout page it wont update if you toggle on the reference view in plan. You have to re-send it to the layout page.

    Removing References to As-built Files

    I tried to do that, but the Chief WEB site was not letting my images upload. So I was left trying to describe it. Ryan above was on the right track, I had a reference to an existing as-built. Chief wouldn't let me delete it. All I needed to do was change it.
  15. Having trouble either switching to the local image or deleting the As-built. Any ideas

    Removing References to As-built Files

    The answer is, that I had replaced the default reference with the external reference, oso it would not allow a deletion. The solution was to switch back the default using the Plan Drop-down in the Reference List.

    TV for conference room monitor?

    Same here, I have (2) 43 inch, set to 2K (2560 X 1440) I love this arrangement. the TVs are hanging on wall mounts in my office. Ones an LG the other is an Hisence. When it's time to take a break and watch Netflix I use the LG but the Hisence does a better job of being a screen. The 2K makes it possible to get a good resolution screen shot for quick prints to send to folks.
