  1. Hi all, Tony here. I am looking for experienced builders/designers opinions on a builders recent reframing of openings in a house renovation I designed. I am very unhappy with what I see. This is a waterfront home in Connecticut, design wind speed of 110 mph with a large open plan and lots of glass. Without influencing the replies does anyone see anything wrong with these openings and/or reframing/closure of existing openings?

    CAN NOT ROTATE ROOM LABELS ONLY

    I have rotated Room Labels for as long as I can remember (thats not that long) and yes I can select the Room Label and move it,but it will not rotate. This is a legacy plan that may have been reversed. I commonly rotate the labels in say a closet where the text can be wider than the room itself.

    CAN NOT ROTATE ROOM LABELS ONLY

    Would someone be able to tell me why I cannot rotate the room labels only on a legacy plan from 8 using X-10? Other text and symbols etc rotate properly,tia. Tony T

    X 10 Patch w/ lags?

    I am using 9 bc of the issue of lag time for redraws but am using X to finish a project and no longer do I see an option to turn off 3d MODEL, not Rebuild Ceilings and Floors, but to turn off the long refresh/redraw time i am experiencing of the 3 D model, has that been eliminated?

    X 10 Patch w/ lags?

    Thanks every one,Mick too. I am begrudging using 9 and missing many new features of X . its working well but really like the watermark feature alone.

    X 10 Patch w/ lags?

    I do not think it is my computer, as I have returned to using 9 with no problems; no lag at redraws, no crashes and lightning quick. I use Chief 10 hours a day, 5 to 6 days a week, pretty familiar with it. Seems like there are a few people experiencing similar issues. Can I go back and remove the Patch?

    X 10 Patch w/ lags?

    Hi all, first off another gotta have upgrade for this long time user, as CA has consistently listened to and adjusted from input from its users unlike any software product I have used. Cheers to them. However, I have been experiencing appreciable lag time in redraws as well as crashes since I installed the patch: has any one else experienced this? Is there a way to uninstall the patch? Thanks.

    Auto Detail Roof Insulation

    Yes was this Auto generated with Auto Detail, and it would be great if it could follow a cathedral to level ceiling, but right now I cannot figure how to auto detail insulation in the roof cavities alone,only floors and walls, thanks,

    Coastal home video

    Happy New Year to this great community of Chief users! I've been at it a long time, perhaps before some CA users were born, and its proven to be a fanatastic tool to use to create your dream! Some of you may enjoy the following recent videos featuring projects done in Chief Architect, it's all possible when you have experienced people building the 'vision'! Every upgrade has been worth the wait.

    X9 wont start after Windows Update

    I am not running MacFee and was trying to update Chief 9 and am getting the same error message and now cannot get the software to run. Of course I have a few deadlines and this is terrible. We should have been cautioned that there was a problem with this update; I am dead in the water. I am not able to download anything at the moment,so please is there a way to get Chief ( back up and running?

    X9 Slowing towards Freezing

    I have been experiencing the same issue when switching between open windows in x9 If I use the tabs the screens switch as they should, if I use the drop down Windows menu,the lags start at a few seconds lag time to a minute or more to switch to an active window. Its not file size related, I have been using Chief since the 90's and have never had such a glitch. I have a modern ROG Asus with updated drivers etc. Its been tough to use 9 for anything as I instinctively go to the drop down Windows menu when switching between active views. This post was from back in July,has there been any progress on the resolution of this issue?

    Platform framing thru stairwell

    Hi all. Is it possible to have the walls auto framed at stairwells and open to below spaces in a standard platform framed style so that a wall detail shows the wall framing entirely across the wall and it isn't 'missing' because the wall framing from the walls below balloon up from below. In plan view as well it appears as if the wall framing is missing on walls above an open to below space. Would a floor 'box' also be auto framed in that case? Thanks. Tony T
