  1. If it is something that is really important to render correctly you could convert to a symbol and work with the individual surfaces to apply your own materials. Just a lot of tedious work but completely possible.
  2. You should be able to rotate that right in the "Cylinder Specification" DBX Dialogue Box.
  3. Yes and they will be a bit easier to mask in for the details. Still waiting for a solution from chief though after many many requests.
  4. You can shape the front wall. Just the side walls that need filling in with some other method. Place the break along the top of the wall.
  5. Have a look at the file. There is likely a bunch of materials and saved pictures and PDF's. If those are in use in the plan file then yes that will effect performance. Not that you can do without though as some will be default.
  6. Preferences> CAD> Line Properties> Endcap Printed Length:> Reduce to perhaps 1/16 or 1/32 or less and see if that helps.
  7. Your exact situation is not completely clear so you may need to post the plan file or provide some more information. If it is the grey strip you need to remove that is most likely caused by having multiple layers in your railing wall definition. It should go away if you have only a single framing layer. Otherwise a rood divider may work.
  8. Your welcome and you may have even taught me something as I would have suspected that it needed to be turned on not off.
  9. See if Global Symbol Mapping fixes it. Check Global Symbol Mapping to map the texture and pattern using the same origin on all objects. When unchecked, the origin is defined individually for each object.
  10. Both of the previous replies are correct. However if this is something you intend to do more than once there are other ways to achieve what you want, particularly if all the units are the same size which would make it fairly simple to sort out. Let me know if I can help.
  11. Rich, Manually apply the molding but first convert your curves to polylines so you can reduce the number of segments and perhaps it will meet your requirements.
  12. I would not take it as a simple no. Perhaps send that to tech support. Did you try applying a molding manually to see if the same thing happens ?
  13. Is this the one you were looking for ?
  14. One trick I used before diving deep into ruby macro's was to make a copy of the applicable line and change the line style to blank and move it to where ever it needed to be to provide a usable label for the original line. Not ideal but it works. I was not aware there were any "auto macro's" provided by chief that were useful for quadrant bearing or formatted lengths ? What did I miss ?
