  1. Hey Chiefer's.. Got everything running on the new pc.. its windows 11 and that in itself is a different mentality. The thing I am trying to figure out is; when I have Chief loaded, and I want to open another Chief file, for example a layout file, the Chief file explorer screen will not let me move or reduce in size. I cant grab the edges, or corners, or pick to relocate. Do one of you knowledgeable people know if I must have hit a magic button or something? Its kind of a PITA, esp. when I want to see something in the model. This goes for when I am picking material, textures, bump maps too. BTW, I can manipulate an actual file explorer screen... just not inside of Chief.
  2. Is it because its a railing wall? I have this issue all the time it seams and a Poly has the been the only thing I know to do to fix it.
  3. Would this be a virtual thing? I def like Joe's ideas as well.
  4. Ok.. good. I was hoping I didn't have to buy another license. I can have Chief loaded on as many computers as I want, but only one can be active at a time. True! Hope this new big boy box helps w more speed and keeps my soffits from looking green. :-)
  5. This doesn't look scary :-) How does this all work with Chief? I have one license.. do I need to load Chief X14 on new pc first, and will loading new create just that standard OOB libraires? Then I can transfer the additional catalogs, user stuff after the fact? And loading on the new, will that cancel my X13 license on the old? I'm not sure how the license thing works.
  6. Yeah.. this looks scary to this non techy guy. The tips look doable though. Thanks.
  7. Maybe I'm not putting in the correct search words, but I could have swore I saw a post with steps of moving everything Chief to a new pc. Any help locating, or your own steps would be helpful. Thanks,
  8. That was the first go was a rail wall. But this is a stair and landing, and I couldn't get it to follow.
  9. Thank you Robert! First time I used a ramp.
  10. Here you go.. a very stripped down version. RAILING ISSUE.plan
  11. Going to ask this and head to bed. Hope one of you brilliant people have a suggestion. :-) I have a simple railing here.. but for some reason there is a doorway in it that can be picked but not deleted. I have deleted 20 times to no avail. I redrew the railing numerous time and a door pops back in is place. I have all my layers turned on in hopes to finding an invisible reason.. nothing. I've even "changed" the door type to be able to pick something.. nope! Too late to be this stumped. Happy Belated Fathers Day to you all!
  12. Hi Ed.. I have had the problem before also. I kept moving the complete pole dimension away from the object, and it fixed itself. However, this def needs to be fixed. We only have so much paper space..
