  1. I can do that, and I know that works, but it seems silly. Every other program I use can' plot to the HP, just not Chief. If I have to plot to pdf and then plot to the HP, it makes printing very, very slow. thanks for the tip though.
  2. I have an older HP 800 plotter. It works fine in Windows 10, and I have autocad and it also works well with Autocad Architecture. But when I try to plot anything to it from Chief Archtiect x12, I get an error message stating that the plotter is reporting a dpi of 0, and of course it won't print anything from Chief. Am I doing something wrong?
  3. Is there a way to change just the color of a vertical siding to make it match the color of a lap siding? I don't see a way to do it, thanks everyone!
  4. Ryan, that worked! Thanks so much!
  5. Hi all, sorry to keep bombarding all of you with questions. When I send an image to layout, there used to be a way to create a border around it way back in X1. Is there a way to do that still? I don't see it. Thanks for all your help.
  6. Thanks so much!!! It worked. I still don't understand why the second floor wall on the left side of the plan is not displaying.
  7. I'll give that a try Lew, thanks.
  8. Ok, thanks, but I'm not sure what to turn on. Also, the wall below the left side of the house is not showing although the others are. Very confusing. incomplet roof plan.pdf
  9. Is there a way to show roof planes one floor up? When i try to do the Roof plan for the layout, it only shows one floor and the roof for that, but the main floor which has some separate roof, doesn't show. Am I doing something wrong?
  10. David, It took me a couple of minutes to figure out what you were saying, but I did figure it out. This is PERFECT! Thank you so much! This was one of the issues that drove me crazy in X1 and I never did figure it out, so thank you again!
  11. Thanks everyone, but I'm not sure how either of these methods works. If I do point to point, it says to hit the double center arrows button and then pick the second point, but it picks the center of the cad drawing rather than a specific point. I'm not even remotely understanding the copy, place and hold idea. Sorry, new to X12, haven't really used Chief since X1.
  12. Is there a way to align floor plans in layout? I want each floor to exactly overlay the floor above and below on the sheets. Thanks!
  13. Is there a way to create a folder in bonus catalogs to group similar catalogs? Right clicking does not give the option to add a New Folder.
  14. Thanks for the help on the Signatures everyone!
  15. Is there a way to create folders in Bonus Catalogs or User Catalogs to place similar libraries?
