  1. Thanks so much, you have solved this problem for me. As suggested, I went into the wall type dbx and selected the drywall in the wall layers. I was able to change it to the 4x12' version, easy peasy. Never knew this was an option.
  2. I need more of a hint Eric. I found the 4x12' wall board in the library and tried using the paint tool on plan setting and it didn't work. Still shows 4x8' shows on material list. Thanks!
  3. Just wondering if anyone else has been receiving these inquiries. Over the past few years I am getting emails (at least 7-8) that start off asking if I provide Architectural Drawings for residential plans. I let them know that I am a draftsperson and give them information regarding my services. Here are the last 2 examples. I have pretty much just blown them off because I think it is a scam situation that is somehow trying to get my personal information and perhaps access to my financial information. They all seem to word it about the same. What are your thoughts?? Anyone else having similar experiences. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ April 28,2020 Hello, I am Fred ..

This one gave an actual address. You can tell that English doesn't seem to be his native language. Not that that is a problem as a number of my clients are from other countries and have difficulty expressing themselves in English. We work it out with pictures and and they bring family members that speak English most times. But when it is put together with multiple fishy emails, it gets my radar up. May 8, 2020 I found your contact in the Architects Directories, Do you do Architectural drawing and design planning for residential houses..here is the address of the property:10456 Mixonville Rd, Mc Kenzie, AL 36456... Do get back to me if you if this is your service area so i can forward you the details and talk about the payment plan.

  4. Me Again!!! Another question because you folks are so very helpful. My client would like to use 4x12' instead of 4x8' sheets of drywall. Is there a way to change this in the defaults so that Chief Architect would calculate this size for the materials list?
  5. Thanks a bunch. Everyone stay virus-free and prosperous!!
  6. yep, got to remember how to update my signature info, thanks!
  7. Anyone else having this difficulty. I have had difficulty pasting a picture from Snip and Sketch and a wall from another plan that was created in x12. Never had any problems in x10 doing what I am trying to do. I have tried control C, Control V, and using the actual copy tool in chief architect when I select the wall. The paste options aren't available (grayed out) Any suggestions. A little more information. I went to a different plan and copied a wall and was able to paste it into the current plan. Then I went back to the original wall I wanted in the other plan and was able to copy it and paste it in the current plan as well. What the heck????
  8. Solved it. and change floor level
  9. Another 12x problem where I could use some help. Seems to be a problem with identifying the floor that is being referenced in the layout. Anyone have the solution? This is whatI want and what I sent to the layout: This is what the layout shows it received
  10. Excellent!!! Got it done. Thanks!!!
  11. Ok. I will work on adding these. Can you tell me what the names are of the icons when you hover over them?
  12. And of course it would work out that I don't have the icon available on my toolbar that you are showing. Suggestions?
  13. Wow, that is different. Thanks for being there and helping me figure it out.
  14. Thanks, I changed the default but it is still showing solid lines where I have the reference set showing dashed lines.
  15. Where do I find this now? I have switched from x10 to x12 and can't find how to I can set the reference display layer set to the one I prefer to use that has all the walls dashed
  16. Awesome!!!! thanks so much!!!
  17. Good Morning! Anyone have a similar symbol or know how I can make a window like this one? Thanks!!!
  18. Solved see below: K. I did something stupid and can't figure out how to get the layer display dialog box back to its normal size. Minimizing didn't work as this is the minimized size. Can someone tell me what I need to do to get it back to its smaller size. Well I figured it out before I posted my question, and thought I should post it in case I or someone else runs into this again. Maximize the dialog, and then there is a small area in the right lower corner that will allow you to drag the corner up and in with your mouse to the size you want.
  19. Thanks everyone for your guidance. I have breadcrumbs to follow now.
  20. For me, sometimes the frieze boards show up and sometimes they don't or are only partially there. I am super happy that most of the gables have the auto frieze working properly, That just leaves the two front gables for me to deal with, thankfully.
