  1. You are posting this in the incorrect section. Please post questions for other users in the Q&A secion. This section is to offer your own tips and techniques to others.
  2. Thanks. Wanted to check here in Q&A before I made a suggestion.
  3. Does anyone know a way to include a totals row for cabinet schedules that will add up the width of all base cabinets to give a total of the linear cabinets? I'd like to be able to provide a quick and easy calculation for preliminary drawings so the client can get a tangible sense of how much cabinet space is provided.
  4. I follow a workflow that goes from broad concepts to specific details, a narrowing of focus, over the time of 3 to 4 revisions. I let my clients know that on the first meeting when we are doing space planning that cabinet doors are not important to discuss at this time. Getting the general flow of the plan and the function and arrangement of the spaces determined BEFORE we go into too much detail is important and keeps the project on track, preventing major deviations from the original design from derailling the process near the finishing stages.
  5. This would be great for a preliminary phase when we are waiting weeks for the surveyor to fit us in his schedule. Thanks, I'll check it out!
  6. "Tips and Tricks" is somewhat ambiguous as to the purpose of this forum, being that it is to offer new ideas. Sort of the opposite of "General Q&A." While the sub heading clarifies it, it seems that a lot of new users and users not familiar with the forum navigate here to ask for help instead of the Q&A section. I think a better title might help people recognize the purpose of this sub forum. I can't think of a name off the top of my head, but perhaps people have some suggestions. I'll be back if I think of something.
  7. I've been wanting this one but never even thought to make a feature request.
  8. Stairs are still a major outstanding issue in chief. We got some things a while back to hold us over, but until we are specifying their framing, have railing offsets, and probably a bunch of other stuff they are still a very basic tool IMO.
  9. Damn, this has a LOT of things we've been asking for for like 10 years. I was hoping to see some position control of dimension text laterally (as in to the left or right, instead of just above, below or centered on the line.) But maybe for X14. Love the automatic C/L feature thought! And framing header controls are finally fully functional!
  10. I have my s key bound to another tool via hotkeys. Do you know what tool or function the s key is controlling so that I can bind it to another hotkey?
  11. You should post this on the Q&A forum if you want people to respond with help for you. This forum is to offer tips you know that will help other users.
  12. You should be posting this on the Q&A forum. This forum is for you to share tips and tricks you have learned with other people. You will get more traffic looking at your problem if you post it in the right forum.
  13. I don't understand how my post wasn't clear.
