  12. Hi, I'm working as designer for California based company, and am in need of capable Chief user to complete my approved concept drawings. All, or mostly all single family residential projects. Wood Frame construction. I have standard template for my jobs, and the process is pretty simple and straightforward for someone familiar with Chief. Please reply to cjones@intempus.net Regards, Cris Cris Jones VP of Design Services Intempus Builders cjones@intempus.net P: (408) 320-5509 | C: (707) 367-1987 | F: (408) 907-8934 20640 3rd St. | Suite 300 | Saratoga, CA 95070
  13. Heh...yep...I figured out a way to mount a table to the top of my camera tripod. Works great. People go, "Ooh!" too. Think I found something in magic plan for apple or android devices... Just downloaded it to give it a spin. Thanks!
  14. Hi, I'm working more remotely these days, and have had some guys help in gathering dimensions and property information. While I've become practiced in sketching out the layout of a typical 2000sf house, I guess it does take a little practice. Trying to make this process simpler, I'm looking to see whether anyone could suggest easy, straightforward software which will run on a tablet or i-pad, with which someone could easily draw walls, add windows and doors, pull dimensions....doesn't have to be fancy, just able to record accurate dimensions....thinking via touchscreen would be best.... Suggestions which don't require much of a learning curve? Thanks!
  15. Hi, Has anyone had difficulty with Elevation view not showing various framing members? I've had this difficulty now, across multiple plans. Framing members visible in Camera view are not visible in Elevation View. Yes, I do have the framing members selected to display in Elevation. ;) Thanks! Cris
  16. ...also, sorry I started this thread in the wrong forum....I'll do better next time.
  17. I need a workable scheduling app specific to my business paradigm. I pretty much know all the steps which will be involved with whatever job. I'd like an app which will allow me to define the various fields, then allow me to fill the estimated number of hours for each, being able to schedule each specific task individually, then have that tie into calendar which will morph in real time as things progress/change....I need it to extend my schedule, say if I run a week early or a week late on any given task, so I've got a constantly up-to-date scheduling app. I ask you, because you know my pain. Ideas? I've tried to create spreadsheet to handle this, but not sure how to do what I want with tying it in with a fluid calendar....ideas? Thanks!
  18. I'm currently scheduling out about 4 months. Got about 15 active jobs. Trying to keep it all in my head is taking a toll. Straightforward scheduling software, for design projects? Sure I can't be the only one. Thanks!
  19. 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!
  20. 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
