    dormer & bonus room

    I Agee, build dormer manually ON THE FLOOR ABOVE, check roof cuts wall at bottom, put hole in roof.... I do not think it is necessary to create a room. I did countless videos years ago trying to figure this out.

    It is probably a soffit. Turn roof soffit off to verify.... if so, change the SUBFASCIA depth. SUBFACIA controls location of soffit.

    How to show SLAB sq ft

    The only solution that I know of is to use Michaels (Alaskan Son) area macros or Joe Carrick's package. This by the way is required for EVERY SET OF PLANS I do. I need a breakdown of Garage Areas, Heated Areas, Porch areas, sidewalk area etc. I would of thought this capability would of been baked into CA but it is not. I suppose the benefit of this is the two aforementioned guys came up with two different methods to solve the same need.

    I don't think you should ever manually adjust a wall height in elevation unless you. know what you are doing. That is what got you in trouble in the first place.

    X12 New Features are listed Here

    No, I do not use that glass house feature. You got me thinking about turning off the ref set, it would be a good feature, but until they give you this feature, simply toggle the ref set to ref the 3rd floor or the 18th floor. (a floor that does not have anything on it). Almost as simple as a toggle one/off button.

    BTW, if you do want a ceiling in that living room, I think you will need to build if with a. CEILING PLANE in lieu of the room DBX. If you want to use the DBX, go to the ceiling structure and change the depth of the ceiling joists from 5-1/2" to 16" and then to 1" and you will see how it effects the siding finish on the gable end.

    Larry, you must be missing something, the Multi Ref is about as good as it gets. I have used 3. ref sets for one layer set in certain plans. It really is where it should of been years ago. Thanks CA for this.

    California Assembly Bill 68

    Yep, not a good thing. Some folks buy into their neighborhoods for a certain level of quality of life and this bill could wreak havoc.
  13. I missed the 200%.... I will look again... it only makes sense.
  14. BTW, I think it is relatively easy to go from 24x36 to 12x18, but I do not think it I as easy to go from 12x18 to 24x36.

    How do you handle changes?

    Nope, too much trouble. I have a TB of memory on computer. When I get close to being full I put older files on the drop box cloud. Files stay on the drop box cloud and I have only the icon on by hard drive for access should I ever need the file again.
