    Line Drawings pdf generation error

    Thank you.

    Line Drawings pdf generation error

    Yeah, But because it's a feature of the program, I'd rather not have to build it myself. That's an idea though. Thanks!

    Line Drawings pdf generation error

    I like the look of the Line Drawing option, for my elevations and for my cross sections. I have had difficulty with these generating correctly. When I add CAD info to the view, it prints off-set from the squiqqly artsy lines generated by the effect, so I end up with a double image with dimensions pointing to the wrong thing, leader lines pointing to nothing and text boxes moved to where they ought not be. When I choose to use the vector view option, this does no happen....but because I kinda like the artsy look of the line drawing, it irritates me. I've been told that it could have something to do with my video card, but what I am using is more than sufficient. It happens the same with the Chief pdf generator as well as with pdf995 printer. Has anyone figured out how to fix this? Thanks in advance. Cris

    Sent an email. Let me know if you'd like to talk. Cris
  5. Howdy, I'm not an architect, but have been California based Residential Designer, using Chief Architect for the past 20 years. Keeping my California "shop" open, as I relocate to N Idaho. I'd be happy to work with whomever, to get your project put together. (Even around the corner, in Wyoming.) Purdy busy at the moment, but if you're not in a giant rush, let me know. My website has some examples of my work, and I'd be happy to provide some plan-sets, created over the past several years, as reference. Let me know. Cris

    Howdy, I've been Chiefer for about 20 years... I've got a job off Main St, helping bring an old Victorian "beauty" back to life. Haven't yet had opportunity to work in the City of Grass Valley. How are they to work with? Any heads-up? Thanks in advance. Cris
  7. Howdy, Just scrolling thru ChiefTalk, and happened across your post. I've been residential designer in Northern California for 20 years, inherited business from my dad, who started 30 years before that. I'm moving to N Idaho, in the Late Spring, but will continue working in California. I've also thought a lot about working in OR/WA as well. If you're interested in a "telecommuter", ring me up.

    Curved to straight rail transition

    Aha! Figured it out! Turns out I had 2 wall types for the different rails.....changed'em both to Deck rail/fencing & all is copasetic. Hope it helps someone else. Cris

    Curved to straight rail transition

    Set point, as center of a 4' radius, 4' in from outside surface of rail. Stopped my straight rails to create the 4' curved rail within 90 degrees. I'm thinking I must be misaligning something.....anyone else figure this out already? Thanks for your great wisdom.

    Assigning annotation set to camera view defaults...

    Hi Rene, When I open a camera view, I want to be able to define which annotation set is automatically associated with the camera view. Default is to assign it to the camera/section view set.....I don't want that.....just another step. Just more time.....trying to pare time takers. Cris
  11. Anybody know a way to assign annotation set to camera view default setup? (so i don't have to keep changing from "Section view" or "Camera View", to my preferred defaults?) Thanks.
  12. Thanks again, I'm mainly single-family residential. Working across state lines, rather than making sure my drawings are code-compliant, I'm looking more at the tax laws and business licensing aspect. I think I have the code part pretty well figured, and can hire local professionals to accomplish the unmanageable. I just want to know what I'm getting into, before I get into it. If I travel to another state, sit down with a client, design their home, return to my home state, draw the plans......I believe I'm supposed to have business license in the other state, where I'm drawing the plans for, as well as license in my home state.....and what about tax laws? I only report in my home state?...or do I need to report the income earned in the state where the job is...I just want to be certain of reg's before making decisions.... Thanks, Cris
  13. Hi David, and thank you. These projects are for my own contacts, and are my own designs. My name will be on them. Hence the search. Thanks again for the reply. Cris
