  1. Set landing heights manually and then simply drew stairs from landings to landings and from landing to ground. Same thing you tried to do with floors but with landings instead.
  2. Are you sure you actually connected to the landings? I just tried it with your plan and it works just fine.
  3. There probably is. I'm still not quite sure what the problem is. In reading back though though, and after having opened your plan file, I think I may have stumbled on it... You don't need to draw 5 floors. What you need to do is simply draw 5 Landings. Then the stairs can automatically reference those.
  4. Lines 1 and 2 are NOT the same line weight as the rest, therefore your polyline is NOT fully enclosed... The line weight of the main polyline was just manually changed at some point... All you need to do is open it up and check the By Layer for the Weight. Then just click on one of the end nodes and then click on it again.
  5. Can you explain why placing onto a different layer isn't a good solution?
  6. Not sure I understand why anyone would need a floor at all. Is it just the automatically calculated Riser Heights that you're looking for?
  7. +1. I was going to make the same suggestion myself.
  8. I don't have a lot of time to dig into exactly what might be happening, BUT...Chief seems to be getting confused by not only the invisible wall Glenn mentioned, but also by the solid wall types being used to define the deck. Its as if Chief thinks those walls are the building when generating the deck supports. Change those to railing walls or Invisible walls and the problems also seem to go away that way. I would definitely send this one in to tech support.
  9. I posted my own personal thought on the subject here...
  10. Also bear in mind that you can ENTER values in a number of different formats provided that you also type in the appropriate unit indicators as well.
  11. To be fair, I didn't actually accuse you of anything. I suggested that you make sure "you're not unintentionally pirating software" and that "the original purchaser isn't violating their license agreement." You could cost that person their license.
  12. Chief has made it pretty clear over the years that they don't mind people keeping copies of previous version installed and even using them as necessary. I think the intent of that section is to keep people from using multiple version simultaneously.
  13. I don't think the pony wall is the problem. Its the solid wall that's the problem. Normal railing walls with a defined height and with their newels and balusters (or panels) allow for easily following a terrain contour due to the very obvious and straightforward way these components can be logically be broken up and separated into individually undulating sections. A solid wall on the other hand has no such logical breaks. Its kinda like building a fence in real life. With regard to your specific application, it doesn't really sound like you actually need to use a workaround so much as it sounds like you just need to find (or make) yourself a suitable railing panel symbol. Note that you can also reshape solid walls in 3D and that you can overlap a room definition wall and a no room definition wall to get a few more options.
  14. 2 wall types of the same type (room definition and no room definition) cannot occupy the same plan view space. Try one set to room definition and another set to no room definition.
