  1. Have you tried disabling Nahimic? Until I came across Mick's post NOTHING would stop the weird s** lets call it stuff from happening on my new Alienware hooked up to (2) external monitors. Tech, good as they are, had no solution. The problem was at its worse when dragging a window to another monitor. Disabled Nahimic and no more problems - worth a try. I'll repost K Birds post from about a year ago. Saved me a bottle of xanax Since the Alienwares and NVIDIA cards are so tuned to gamers I think that setup is especially sensitive to the interference Some info appears to have disappeared from the Forum about this Issue so this is just a repost for Future Users to find ie a PSA. ** Removing the Sonic Radar Win 10 App only solved it for me, there was no need to remove Sonic Studio App or the " Nahimic Service" which is needed for Sonic Studio to work, though some have reported they had to remove both the Sonic Apps to solve this. (Sonic Radar is a 3D sound Source App for Gamers, which causes the Issue as it senses CA as a 3D game but CA does not have any Audio) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Nahimic Service is the Issue , it can be stopped in the Services App ( Service.msc in the Run Dialog) and configured for manual start only or disabled, at least as a Test to see if your issue is indeed Nahimic. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The are several reports online also posting about Nahimic having a White and Black List , and adding Chief to the Blacklist may work but personally I did not try that. Hi Yes there is known issue between Nahimic 3 and other applications (Maya, Substance Painter, 3D applications using OpenGL ). This primary happens when application is started on secondary monitors. some more research is found here: https://discourse.mcneel.com/t/rhino-freezes-on-secondary-monitor-problem-with-the-nihimic-audio-driver-on-the-motherboard/82258/39 All fixes are just .......uninstall the Nahimic 3 Apps....ie Sonic Radar ( game sound detector) and Sonic Studio (equalizer) For us who don't want accept that solution here is simple fix: Locate this nahimic blacklist ( maybe in a slightly different place on your PC eg if you have a Dell , see below) C:\ProgramData\A-Volute\A-Volute.Nahimic\Modules\Scheduled\Configurator\BlackApps.dat and insert your affected executable application to avoid injecting your application by Nahimic tested on Substance Painter.exe There is no needed to restart PC or Nahimic Service Just save file. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This has worked for me, so far at least. For my laptop Alienware m17r3 the file location is: C:\ProgramData\A-Volute\DellInc.AlienwareSoundCenter\Modules\ScheduledModules\Configurator\BlackApps.dat ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mick.
  2. OK You da man too Actually quoted your post on the Nahimic possibly causing the multi monitor issue in the other l o n g post on the mouse issue
  3. Similar problem started with the cursor recently. Sho enuf NVIDIA released an update 8/31/2021. All better. Once again you da man Rene! Also from past posts: Removing the Sonic Radar Win 10 App only solved it for me, there was no need to remove Sonic Studio App or the " Nahimic Service" which is needed for Sonic Studio to work, though some have reported they had to remove both the Sonic Apps to solve this. (Sonic Radar is a 3D sound Source App for Gamers, which causes the Issue as it senses CA as a 3D game but CA does not have any Audio) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Nahimic Service is the Issue , it can be stopped in the Services App ( Service.msc in the Run Dialog) and configured for manual start only or disabled, at least as a Test to see if your issue is indeed Nahimic. I was having many problems with (2) monitors hooked to my new laptop a year ago. I disabled Nahimic and it solved everything.
  4. I went through many of the posts relating to this and came across a post from renerabbitt about the cursor jerking etc.He said trouble with the cursor is typically not the mouse but the graphics card. Sho enuf NVIDIA released an update 8/31/2021. All better. Once again you da man Rene!
  5. Using a Logitech G502 corded mouse. Switched out to a G302 and same problem
  6. Wow exactly why I just signed on. X13 was working fine except for little quirks like change my 8x8 doug fir posts to bronze or randomly changing a polyline solid back to concrete. Annoying but easy fix. I'm working on an extensive timber frame. Cut a back clipped section to modify rafters and beams and BAM. Cursor works fine until I highlight a CAD item I'm modifying before converting to solid and the cursor becomes unlivable. Slide over to another monitor with the plan up and everything normal.....PITA
  7. Use a soffit. Position it where the pilaster goes. Align top and bottom at footing. Use the the material eyedropper from the wall to the soffit and the grout lines will line up. Use CAD to patch the plan view
  8. I have a CAD line in my layers called CAD, Whiteout... set to about 25 it covers most "unwanted" lines and can always be increased if need be. Handy to block a cross as well for those pesky dimension extensions that cross. Just copy paste on the intersection.
  9. As Gene said, the floor composition is in the structure tab>edit floor. You can build the floor layers similar to "building" a wall. You adjust the elevation of the materials with absolutes, rough and most important stem wall - top of footing to top of mud sill. Set your heights relative to all your structural elements and required rough height and you'll be fine
  10. I think the program is reading two switches controlling the same outlet - three way. Try overlaying a different outlet, receptacle, etc. and put it on its own layer so you can "white it out" - Make sure one switch goes to each hot point.
  11. Do it all the time. Basic architectural drafting standard (at least when I learned it in the 60's) is the main entry faces the bottom of the sheet or the right. When I change to a smaller scale such as 1/8" I send as a key plan and separate into 1/4" plans at logical and clearly marked break lines
  12. Have you tried File>Back up entire plan ?
  13. Or where you're trying to pull the dimension draw a cad line. They'll snap to the section lines. The dimension will snap to the cad lines. If you make changes to the model you can move the line by the connected dimension
