  1. Oh yes, but there are certainly not enough to illustrate all the possible applications of tile
  2. Well shoot, I was trying to create multiple tile patterns. I have a tile manufacturer that I use who has many shapes that I would love to easily replicate by creating it once.
  3. I would like to create additional tile patterns, but for the life of me cannot see how to save a pattern I've created as a fill! I would love a pointer Editing to clarify that I have found how to import a .pat file, but I cannot see how I could create a .pat file to export.
  4. I am using a wall schedule for permitting wall assembly information but was surprised to see that there is not something similar for floors, ceilings, and roofs. Am I missing something? Or, do I need to convert the schedule to text to add that information? I would like this to be an "Assembly Schedule" rather than a wall schedule:
  5. That's so weird! Why does it have that option if we can't use it?
  6. I would like to do a double door in my floor plan with custom sized panels (left panel larger than the right panel). Unfortunately, this option is grayed out. I know I've done this before, but am having the darndest time getting that option to be available. Can someone tell me what I'm missing?
  7. I have been trying to do this exact thing. I have turned off the Opening Header lines layer and have hidden the top edge and still see this. Uh yeah... ignore me. I had lines drawn behind it
  8. LOL, I wasn't worried about the 0,0 because I'm basically supplying a few drawings (roof plan, floor plan, details) for a designer who is doing elevations, etc by hand. I have no idea how in the world that happened. I was literally getting ready to print and everything looked great, then I went back through the pages for a double check and everything was screwed up! Needless to say, I sat with my face in my hands for a while that evening.... lol. Thank you for figuring that out. I swear, I've never even locked a layer!!!
  9. Here is the file (pardon the errors, it is still in progress, lol) DUN01_DESIGN.plan
  10. I have no clue what I managed to do, but suddenly random items are showing up on my roof plan and cannot be selected. A dryer (but not the washer), select shelves, a shower column, a towel warmer and a range hood. I can see the items in elevation, but cannot select them. I cannot see the items in plan view. I don't know how to fix this error if I can't select them and open them to see what may have happened. Has anyone had this happen before and know the solution? Here is a screenshot of my plot (and yes, this was timed perfectly to happen just before my deadline to get the drawings to the engineer, so I sent them to him like this explaining the glitch... omg):
  11. Well, that's interesting! I was referring to row height, not column width, but I'm not sure how you managed to get such a tight row height in yours!
  12. Thanks Mick. I have done this, and it does certainly help, but not quite enough.
  13. Yeah, such a bummer to turn it off. I feel like it offers so much clarification.
  14. I love that I can easily create a door and window schedule with Chief, and the new (ish) "3D Elevation" feature is spectacular EXCEPT that it creates so much wasted space and is difficult to fit on a page. I know that I can adjust the column widths, but is there really no way to make the row heights a bit shorter so that the image isn't floating in space (without turning it into CAD and losing all of its intelligence)? If anyone knows a way to do this, I would love to hear it!
