  1. Hi, I’m using x10 trying to figure out how to customize the electrical legend. I found a workaround to insert an electrical schedule and modify the fields and add the 2D image , however the 2D images are oversized . Is there a way to resize them to the proper size ,the same size as shown in the the actual legend . I attached screenshots so you can see the difference in sizes . please help !
  2. Yes sir that worked , thank you for the help )))
  3. Hi when I run materials list, it reports the studs in linear feet, and not the actual number of studs . is there a setting to change that will show the stud count rather than the lineeer foot? the framing is already built , and shows all the studs in the 3D and 2d view, so the program already knows this number , why wouldn’t it be reported on the materials list ? Is there an advantage to knowing the linear foot rather than the actual number of studs ? for the wall board such as OSB and drywall , it reports correctly and shows the number of sheets . That is correct . anyboby know what is going on here ?! x10 version, Thank you
  4. Hi , anyone know how to make the garage slab to grade ? In my pic you can see the garage is raised the same as the rest of the foundation… this occurs on monolithic and stem wall foundations . Any help is appreciated much! USING X10
  5. Hi everyone and thanks for the suggestions. I found that the cabinet soffit that DB mentioned forks best and easiest as it can be adjusted in dialog box for height , width length etc. I just had to place it inside the house first , place the recessed lights, and then move it outside attached to exterior .. otherwise it would now allow a recessed light and would default to the exterior light fixture . Other than that , it’s a great hack .. thanks much DB , Chopsaw and MTL!
  6. Hi , I made a simple exterior overhang (over front door) with poly line solid and am trying to place a recessed light below it , as if a regular ceiling bit I won’t install. Anyone know how to accomplish this? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Using X10 version
  7. Hi Glenn! Thank you very much !! That worked very easily following your directions. I was literally trying to figure this out for about 3 months lol. I tried everything, changing storyline defaults , changing specifications in dialog box , pulling lines in every direction , you name it … I noticed it worked sometimes and other times it just moved the line .. but now I know to select the market first and then pull the diamond off . seems like it should have been easier , or just more obvious I guess . Thank you !
  8. Hi, I’m having a very annoying problem with the storyline dimensions in elevation view. I simply want to remove certain Extension/markers .. I saw CA videos that show just to pull the end of the line towards the marker but that is not working … anybody know how to do this ? using x10 thank you !
  9. Hi thanks for the reply Alaskan… I have been trying to find the components section for objects and materials but have not had any luck. How can I access the components to enter default pricing ? Thank you
  10. Hi , I have searched everywhere about this topic and have read that the materials list does not update after making modifications to plans? Is this true ? I noticed this after creating a materials list and I entered all pricing values etc, and then I made some changes on the plans (such as bumping out a wall, swapping materials or just adding/deleting fixtures or components and nothing updated . I hope it is my error and lack of knowledge rather than a shortcoming of CA! any ideas how to fix this so that all the data values that I entered in the list remain and reflect the modifications made in the plan?
  11. Hi, the easiest way to explain this is with an example. i have a Layout open . I send Electrical Layer Set to page 5 of the Layout. Everything is fine. Then I send my Plumbing Layer Set to page 6 of the Layout. Everything is fine. then I go back to Page 5, (and every other page) and the Electrical layer was replaced by the Plumbing Layer, . . The Layer sets are changing on each page of the layout after I send a new layer set to a new page . anyone know what can be causing this ?
