  1. Yes thanks. I got a tutor to teach me how. Mission accomplished! Thanks.
  2. Yes I read that and tried but still no luck.
  3. So I have generally just used things right out of the box but in the current project there five different types of 4" cans and four types of 6" cans and two different colors of indirect lights. Im not concerned about how they render but I do need them to be larger and cleaner than the ones in Chief. The 3D symbols can be the same as the ones in CA. I have followed the tutorial as best I can but something isn't working right. Can you point me to a video or to someone I can pay to make these? I need them today. I have spent two hours trying to figure this out and keep hitting a wall.
  4. Thank you for your reply Joey. Appreciate it.
  5. Thanks very much. That did the trick. Saved me a lot of time.
  6. I have 61 windows in an existing plan and based on the recommendations of the manufacturer of selected windows, I need to change the rough opening sizes. All of the windows are currently expressing the 1/2" per side default and I need to change all to 1/4" per side. Is there a way to do that without opening each window individually? Thanks!
  7. Okay, just to try something, I turned off all fixtures and furniture and it exported fine.
  8. Trying to export a file to be rendered and getting this error. 3DS Export Error: K-15160 C exceeds vertex limit of: 65535. I check earlier discussions and I don't believe I have any Kohler toilets so I am not sure what to check next. Any suggestions
  9. I recently upgraded to X9 and am working on my first window and door schedules. For some reason the label is including the size of the window as well on the schedule under "label" category. There does not seem to be a way to have just the callout in that column. Only width/height or height/width or width only. It makes the schedule confusing. Any tips on how have only the callout show in that column?
  10. That could work David. I will give it a go. Thank you!
  11. When half walls meet (in this case for a parapet, if the walls are of different heights, there is a gap in the cladding material. But not always. Note how it doesn't happen to the left of the front porch. How do you get around that issue? Thanks!
  12. When I generate and elevation to send to the layout page in X8 the image is not as clear as it was in X7. I used to use the Technical Illustration view but now this option (as well as vector) is almost pixelated. Is there a setting that I need to change to get the elevations to be crisp again? I haven't changed any of the default settings.
