  1. Glen is correct clicking the yellow Icon should lead to a DBX popping up with a message telling you what the issue is. M.
  2. Lots of anything with Curves eg Oval Sinks (* lots of them) PDFs saved it Plans CAD Line work from a "Trace" can all slow CA dramatically. Mick.
  3. Don't tell him.... but your son is right , you would Clone the SSD to the NVME, except he should of told you to get it quick for the Black Friday Deal..... However you won't (maybe , need MOBO info) get PCIe 4.0 speeds (7000) only PCIe 3.0 ( 3500?, still 5 x faster that a Sata SSD) as you need a 11th gen CPU to enable PCIe 4 Lanes and the 10700k we both have doesn't have them. My Motherboard (Mobo) a Z590 can with a 11th gen. but my 10th gen CPU can't. Mick.
  4. I backup to another Folder on my internal 2TB HDD AND My External 4TB HDD Data redundancy is best ie 2 places at least ( HDD's can Fail ) ... you can also create a Folder in the Cloud on G-Drive or Dropbox or even the free OneDrive that a lot of people don't seem to use for anything else.... once setup and run the 1st time it doesn't take long as only changes are backed up each day, so I start 1@ at 7pm , then 2@ 7.30 and 3@ 8pm each night. Mick
  5. Just when I was thinking Standard View in X12 looked pretty good and there was no need to spend time on PBR, they broke it with X13...most unfortunate, though I'd love to see PBR work as easily as X12's STD View, but I am thinking it's not in the cards...... I bought a $12 DX11 game for Black Friday, to see what my 3080 can do and the game's 3D is impressive, if not Photorealistic, as it doesn't have RTX tech enhancements. M.
  6. Syncback works well for backing up Folders etc , I have used the free version for 10yrs+ is my guess , never upgraded to the Pro Version as the free version has the features I need eg to back up the Data Folder and My Client Folders. M.
  7. It has had Issues since we got X13 for some reason , and so far it has not been fixed that I am aware of ? M.
  8. If you proactively backup your Chief Data Folder ( as you should ) , you should always have a backup of the Toolbars Folder from the day or week before. SyncBack Free is a great App for doing small (or large) Backups like this Daily to and another Drive Internal or external , been using it for yrs along with Macrium Reflect myself. https://www.2brightsparks.com/freeware/index.html M.
  9. I hope not since there are still too many issues with X13...... including this, the 3D WebViewer Issues and all the Black Flashing in Layout etc. M.
  10. Been quite a few Library Updates over the last few weeks it appears..... M.
  11. I too prefer the look before Full Release , it almost looks "cartoonish" now over a Standard Render , which was helpful for the Cabinet Shop for example to better see the "Vision" as a White Kitchen or the opposite is Walnut or Wenge , cabinets would blend together in 3D views creating querstions.

  13. Windows 10 , has a Keyboard management Option in the PowerToys Microsoft has now brought back via Github it also has a Handy Color Picker with RGB/Hex number etc and a Image Resizer ( by Brice Lambert) which I have used for years but was brought back into PowerToys a year or 2 ago. New Version was released this week actually.................... https://github.com/microsoft/PowerToys
  14. I currently have not allow Win11 on this system, not wanting to be a guinea-pig I have also set all Nvidia Panel 3D Management Options to Default ...and don't add Chief on the Programs tab now either. New Drivers out today if you use the GR Drivers, I have noted recently that CA now recommends the Studio Drivers though. https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/topic/16205-nvidia-drivers-updated/?do=findComment&comment=256204 (see the 1st Post too for Driver Links) If you are multi-monitor and you laptop uses Nahimic Software Audio enhancements also check this post..... https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/topic/28384-multi-monitor-issue-fix-for-computers-with-nahimic-audio/?do=getNewComment I only Set the Win10>Settings> GPU Graphics GPU Scaling to On and then added Chief and set it to High Performance
  15. Also a good trick I forgot about... Glad I could help.... Mick
