    HINGE/DOOR SWING INDICATION IN ELEVATIONS

    Yes I thought so as well but it does not seem to be so. No harm in making a suggestion if that is your presentation preference.

    HINGE/DOOR SWING INDICATION IN ELEVATIONS

    You must have switched you default rendering technique to Technical Illustration for elevation cameras which does not seem to display Opening Indicators. Switch back to Vector View and you should be fine.

    Can I designate an area as the garage?

    The living area calculated result seems to be hard coded to be a slightly smaller font and they will change in size proportionally when you make an adjustment but it seems you maybe want the two to be the same font size ? If so try this:

    Stick frame overframe roof. Why so glitchy?

    Not sure what is going on here for sure but there is a method to use trusses to illustrate and over frame situation.

    Stick frame overframe roof. Why so glitchy?

    Usually just lookouts that fowl up and won't generate properly not rafters in my experience. You may need to post the plan or send it in.
  7. No doors are not quite as easy as windows. Here is a short tutorial I wrote a while back that should help.

    Can I designate an area as the garage?

    A Garage room should be set by default to be "Exclude from Total Living Area Calculation" as well as "Unconditioned" so as soon as you assign the Garage Room type to a room it should be removed from the Total Living Area Calculation automatically. Is that not what you are experiencing ?

    off angle walls by default?

    Humm.... It seems they changed the DBX but not the core programming for X10. In X9 if you enter an additional angle 7.5 is automatically selected. So now it works the same but you have no clue what is going on.

    off angle walls by default?

    So for example you need to do some complex manual framing for a 5/12 roof system because these Allowed angles work for more than just walls... Try entering 22.619865° which is NOT (within 1/2 degree) of the selected 15° unless you think like a programmer and not a Designer or Architect or Engineer that is trying to produce a set of useful construction documents that are accurate.

    off angle walls by default?

    Not a logical reason... That is for sure..... Caution may cause damage to wireless computer components should be the warning that comes up. Instead it gives you this even if the angle you have selected is NOT (within 1/2 degree) of an existing angle you have selected.. Grr....

    off angle walls by default?

    It is helpful but definitely not a perfect solution. Once you start to use it and find it helpful it is a real downer to find out it only works on certain angles.

    off angle walls by default?

    You can place up to 8 Additional Angles into your General Plan Defaults and they will not give the warning and also allow you to snap to those angles for walls and accessories when angle snaps are turned on, which also helps.

    Orbit Camera Control

    Ctlr + Alt + S is a better way to initiate the spin and the camera "Incremental Rotate Angle" determines the rpm. Every time you start will be in the opposite direction also.

    Stair landing.

    Sounds like you need two landings ?

    quadrant bearing reversed

    Aha.... No please don't. That is what surveyors do and it causes all kinds of problems and frustrations. Actually I think some of the survey software will do it automatically. Surveying should be a science not an art !

    You are quite welcome and hopefully with enough suggestions Chief will some day make some improvements to this system.

    3D Graphics Not Rendering in X10 on Windows 10

    As far as I know that is not actually a solution. It just allows you to keep working on a system that is not capable of properly rendering the scene.

    Definitely a known issue. Please send that in. It is really annoying an still plenty of time to get it fixed.

    Auto Deck Framing Issue

    Any thoughts on why auto deck framing would invade a porch room by the thickness of the exterior wall beyond the defined deck room ?

    Give soffits a try and see how that works for you.

    Yes unless they fixed it for X13.

    Auto Deck Framing Issue

    So I assume that means you have no idea why anyone would ever frame a situation like that in such an awkward way having tried to figure it out every time it happens ? I don't think it would even meet code here.
