  1. Damned if this not show up on one of my plans today. Very odd. Note the newel posts - only happens at certain view angles. I fiddled with sunlight, textures and properties to no avail. Need to send file to CA to check out.
  2. You will have to diagnose the plan. Start a new plan and do an edit area of the existing and paste it to the new plan. Then you can start deconstructing it while you look at a 3D view. Sometimes you can have a slight wall overlap or other issue and it will do weird things. You should post the plan and see if one of us here can sort it out.
  3. Not sure. I would delete the cabinet and replace it. Seems like something is wrong with that particular cabinet.
  4. in 3d view, if you select a material eyedropper tool in the upper top row and select an object to paint, there will be icons on the lower left (paint component, object, all in room, all on floor floor or all in plan and then the "roller". At least this is how my toolbar is arranged. If roller is on it will change the color but keep any texture. If you start painting things, these buttons are critical as they can wreak havoc if not used properly.
  5. Did you paint it with the counter material at one point. Looks like it retained a texture. The little roller icon needs to be off to not mix color with texture. You might not be seeing it in CA renders.
  6. Just got a call about doing an underground house. Anybody have any experience with this? I don't do many new houses, so not really interested, but told them I would inquire to see if anybody else may want to take on such a project. Central Kentucky area.
  7. I am looking for old version 7 libraries. Anybody have access to these? Thanks, Charlie
  8. Lew, Thanks - I have X7 and that seems to work. Charlie
  9. I may need to send this to one of you to convert. Let me know if one of you can do it. Thanks
  10. Greetings, Trying to open a file from 2003 - it is in the old format. I have X1, but can't find the dongle. Will X1 open the old pl1, pl2 files? Thanks, Charloie
  11. Perfect. Thanks. I was overthinking it.
  12. Started a plan on a modified, by others, layer set and have the following issue - the ceiling clip lines are showing as HVAC line style. Who knows how this occurred. Question is how to find it and reset it to a simple dashed line? Thanks, Charlie
  13. Just had this problem on a plan and finally got it to frame correctly. I deleted my joist direction line for the second floor platform, which helped, but my joist direction was wrong, so I noted the bearing walls as such in their structure tabs. This made the joist go in the correct direction. I will add a cad line w/ note to show the joist direction.
  14. Got that. Just wondering if anybody changes the program settings for CA or if they tweak the global settings at all.
  15. I did and I have downloaded it. I will try it out later. Thanks
