  1. Was it working okay until you did the Sierra upgrade? I had all sorts of crashes after running it and had to revert back.
  2. Last time I had crashes I couldn't zero down, Tech sent me to these articles, and creating a new user account is listed as something to try. Windows - https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-03049/ Mac - https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-02940/ I also have an automated backup of any changes made to my Documents directory which the Data folder is in, and I believe that's where the user catalog is. I've never needed to use it for Chief though.
  3. If the file locations haven't changed significantly between versions, this article should help. https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-00001/migrating-chief-architect-to-a-new-computer.html

  5. Stumbled across this looking for a different article on the Chief Architect site and thought it could help people here. KB-02905: Using a Bluetooth Measuring Device with Room Planner https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-02905/

  7. Anyone with X8 could open one of your old v8 files, set the Plan Default flag and return it to you so that you could look at it and see how editing works in Home Designer 2017 programs. You just can't save with the trial.
  8. Your Google account should remember what apps you've already purchased. No roofs or any kind of framing in Room Planner, and I doubt this is something they'll add to the app any time soon, probably need to bring the plan in to Chief for that. These might help with some of your other questions Using a Bluetooth Measuring Device with Room Planner Importing a Room Planner Design into Chief Architect and Home Designer Configuring a Leica DISTO Device to Work with Chief Architect Software Also check out the ChiefTalk forum.
  9. Thanks all for your suggestions! Graham's door symbol is going to work out just great for what I need this time around.
  10. The only solution I've found is to Save As PDF from Chief, then print the PDF file.
  11. How are ya'll modeling glazed cabinets? Special materials? Customized cabinet doors? What's the best way to go about this?
