  3. Thanks, I notified my web guy. It was working and I think when we had him change some code for the last revision it must have busted something in there. Thanks for the heads up.
  4. Vancouver, WA Residential Design firm seeking talented Chief Architect users with knowledge of residential construction methods. Wise Owl plans is a progressive firm of 10 draftsmen and designers. We are a good team but we can be better with the help of the right person. See our web page at for examples of some of our projects. Call me or email me to discuss this opportunity. 360-750-8911 ext 1
  5. Anyone interested in a local users group? Open to any and all ideas for collaboration. I am also looking to hire one or two local Chief users if you are interested.
  6. We are growing at a rapid rate and need help turning our residential designs into completed plans ready for permits. We currently have a team of 10 people and need more. Willing to hire as employee or you can work as a contractor. Prefer local but may consider other.
  7. Thanks, That answers my question. The concept sounded so promising. But it sounds like we are not there just yet.
  8. Thanks for the advice. I did see the Surface Pro 4 may be announced on October 6th. I would imagine that would not solve the chief vs the stylus issue.
  9. Is anyone using the Surface Pro 3 with Chief? Are you able to draw reasonably quickly with the stylus? We want to use it for as-builts. It is an expensive solution, but hoping it is the best. We looked at Redstick. That would be option 2.
  10. I am about to make the same leap. How did it work for you?
  11. We are experience a crazy rate of growth in our company. We currently have 60 homes in various stages of design and several of our clients are expanding. We anticipate this will grow to 80to 100. We currently have myself and 5 full time and two part time designers and we are struggling to keep up. (3 of the employees are being trained) I either need to hire and train new people or find an experienced chief designer who would like to work in Vancouver, WA. I dont think working remotely would work, but I may be interested in that if we could find a way to make it work. Also looking for advice from any other users out there who have gone through this type of growth and how they handle it.
