  1. Too many irons in the Fire!!! I'm 60 yrs old and trying to get away from contractor world,,,, online design work has EXPLODED with all these Barndominiums. My post frame experience has paid off, and I see you are doing well,,,, I keep track of you just to make sure I'm up to date.
  2. You are 100% correct on anti virus causing and Carbonite causing problems
  3. Where is Yoseff,,, he could post a video and show you. He is the best at what you're trying to do.
  4. This is a huge problem with no answer and I have been dealing with it too. I even bought brand new computer thinking my 6 yrs old Lenovo was issue. It was not,,, because I still have freeze ups. Make sure window drivers and video card are up to date. I had a rtx 3060 in Lenovo and now I have rtx 3080 in new computer. Running windows 10 in Lenovo and windows 11 in new computer. Also make sure you are working and saving to same directory,,, ESPECIALLY your archive and backup files.
  5. I remember you joining or rather switching design software,,, you have CERTAINLY mastered ChiefArchitect. We all continue to learn.
  6. Import EVERYTHING when opening older version plan in your newer version, saved plan, default settings, annotations, layersets and so on
  7. I will do it for you if it's not resolved.
  8. I do love trusses,,,,,,
  9. Yusuf33 shows us how it is done!!! You are one of the best in this group and always has been
  10. This is a serious issue and it truly started when we were forced to upgrade video cards. X14 is far worse than X13 and I have tried new template directly from X14 (I made new template in X13) I have Nvidia updates, window driver updates ect.... yesterday it Froze up twice and can not reproduce. I agree with maybe anti-virus software or back up software causing issues. I hit save every minute or so,,,, then when it freezes or crashes I reboot and do not sit waiting for it to recover. Still best software for what I do but ChiefArchitect needs to focus on performance and QUIT WORRYING ABOUT PRETTY PICTURES.
  11. I have been design post frame construction with ChiefArchitect for decades. Horizontal framing is childish and ChiefArchitect failed but hopefully they get it figured out.
  12. Open up scehdule dbx and you will see where you can add it
  13. zoom in, select and spin to wall,,, you might have to move stove for minute so easy to select, you can open up symbol too and it gives you control
  14. and a point for each that answered.
  15. Can we extract a version 10 library and get it to X13? Library I need is in "Exterior Fixtures" and I know I can save it to be used in current version with X13. TIA
  16. My pdf editor offers a file size reduction and it cuts it in half
  17. X 13 will open all files. I still have version 10 on an old computer to open files found in Egypt during pyramid digging.
  18. I have Chief on separate drive,,, did it during install and absolutely no issues since purchasing 5 yrs ago
  19. 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,,,,,,,
  20. 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
