  1. Can you tell me how to link library symbols to hot keys? I either forgot how, or it isn't possible. I want to link an exhaust fan, ceiling fan, chandalier, smoke and carbonmonoxide detectors to hot keys. Possible? If so, how. Thanks
  2. I hate when I don't notate what I did so I can refer back to it. I did create these hot keys for library symbols, Now I want to create more for other things in the library that I use often. I can't figure out how I did it. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!!! Sorry about the second quote. I had two saved somehow and I can't see how to remove the other one.
  3. Well darn, The above options work in the 3d perspective views for the materials, but the pattern is still single lines 7" apart in the vector and 2d views I send to my layouts.. Anyway to get the pattern 5" and 3" for the 2D views? Thanks for all the great ideas!
  4. Eric is there an image editor that you like to use that is easy to use?
  5. Any suggestions on how to modify a material so that I can create this effect. I have created a 2" reveal and a 7" reveal, but never one that alternates between two sizes. Thanks!!!
  6. Thanks everyone for your advise. Didn't realize there was a section for building code questions. I will keep it in mind for next time. I appreciate everyone using their ESP in figuring out what I was trying to ask and giving me the help I was looking for on this stair question. I will confirm that the landing is 44".
  7. Sorry, I didn't mean to post both of them, but they both have some really good information in the replies, Is there a way to merge the posts?
  8. Thanks Mike, that makes sense. Not sure how/why anyone would want to create that situation.
  9. is this allowed? Wanting to do this so that the opening at the top of the wider stairs will match the double door on the house. I remember reading the landing is supposed to be the same width as the stairs, but wasn't sure if it would work if the stairs came to the landing from different directions, so thought I would ask one of you experts. Seems like a 6x6' landing would be incredibly large. Thanks!

  11. Is the a way to have an exterior landing framed automatically with its required support posts so it isn't floating in mid air? I alway go back and add the posts manually, but wonder if there is an easier way to do this now.
  12. Eric, The picture I attached was from my layout page. I'll try to make the roofing material thicker. UPDATE: Where do I make the roof material thicker? UPDATE 2: I found it Here it is.
  13. Any ideas on what I did wrong that caused the rafters to show through my roof material. I need to show the open rafters tails.

  14. It was changed somehow on mine. I did the update around 10:00 yesterday morning and before that I had several .plans archive folders. I had 4 on the 10th which were all done before I did the update. Today I have changed the preference back to archive every hour. I had one at 10:17 but now that one is gone and I have one at 11:26 am. I'm not sure what happened or is happening. (¯\_(ツ)_/¯)
  15. I I have always had several archives that were available to choose from before the update. Not sure if it was one every hour, though. I think they have a maximum you can set and then maybe they get over written when it gets to that point???
  16. Thanks for the info. I looked that way as well and it was the older version since I had the file open working on it. Oh well, I have started redoing my work. Thanks for reminding me to set the archive preferences so I won't have this happen again. I think they should add that to the list they give us to make sure certain things are done before we install the update. /They tell us to make sure we have backed up our work. They could also tell us to be sure to reset our archive preference when we get done.
  17. I do, but I don't know if it updates files that are open. I will check One Drive to see. UPDATE: I looked, last one uploaded was 23 hrs ago which is the one I have now. Won't upload open files, evidently.
  18. Gotcha. Is there a way to find the autosave files? Are they stored on the computer in another location?
  19. I wonder if i set this for the last save, would it use the last autosave as the archive?
  20. Oh, Thanks! Checking that now. I wish it would have set my preferences the way I had them in the x12 before I did the update. Then, I wouldn't have had this issue.
  21. I was working on this plan since I installed the CA x12 update yesterday. I had it on save every 5 minutes. It crashed and there are no archived plans to work on since 10:35 am yesterday. Now I have to go back and try to remember all the changes I made. I was nearly done with it! Grrrrrrr! Frustrated.
  22. Is there a distance I could move those windows over where it could still be ICF? I guess what I am asking is what is the minimum space between openings where ICF can still be used?
  23. Does anyone know if there is a problem having windows this close to the door on an ICF build?
