  1. My pdf editor offers a file size reduction and it cuts it in half
  2. X 13 will open all files. I still have version 10 on an old computer to open files found in Egypt during pyramid digging.
  3. I have Chief on separate drive,,, did it during install and absolutely no issues since purchasing 5 yrs ago
  4. 56,000 sq ft industrial building being converted to coveted storage facility. This build has been vacant for many years and the city planning commission was very pleased to give their stamp of approval. Construction documents next,,,,,,,
  5. CAD to walls is worthless, much quicker to import your cad layout as a jpg or pdf and trace it. Sooooo much clean up work with CAD to walls
  6. Trusses are a manual operation and not a one click and done like roof framing. I love trusses and do all my own designs on all projects and work directly with truss engineers on big projects.

    Any rumors of when Beta testing it is going to start? I want to test out the horizontal framing,,,,,,,,, that is supposedly a new option.
  8. old school 3d letters
  9. where is this tool????? I think it is next to auto isometric tool,,,,,
  10. When a plan is rotated 90 degrees the orientation is sideways or backwards,,,, up arrow moves it to left or right and this varies depending on rotation move. Can this be corrected? No issues just curious.
  11. As a rule leave on auto roofs because it is a nice way of program keeping track that you are doing it correct, if roof looks goofy well find out what you need to adjust for it to auto build. OF COURSE complicated projects you will end up shutting it off.
  12. Joey knows, follow his advice
