  1. Thanks Kbird1. I'm going to give it a try.
  2. So I just added Signature with my computer specs. Updated Graphics Card with Latest Driver from NVIDIA Checked Shader Model with Direct X Caps viewer which indicates 6.5 Updated Windows. Still no graphics in X13 so back to wondering if a graphics card update is appropriate.
  3. Just downloaded x13 and found current video card isn't up to snuff. Not really wanting to buy a new desktop just yet. Attaching specs for existing desktop. Anyone have a recommendations for a new graphics card. Hoping not to spend a boatload of money if possible since I will probably get a new machine with in the next year or so. Thanks , Chuck
  4. Thank you very much Michael. That did the trick. I'd forgotten about the island room issues. Haven't had to draw one in a while. Chuck
  5. Thanks Ryan, Using glass house view I found that the missing lights were in the attic above the 2nd floor. I have no idea why. Plan is very much a work in progress. Attaching below. Roberts 71921.plan
  6. Strange issue. In a certain area of my kitchen plan ceiling lights disappear in camera view but not on floorplan. I can drag a light into that area and it disappears, As you can see in attached .jpgs there is a ceiling fan and pedant light that show up on floor plan and not in the camera view. In fact , as noted above, if I drag one of the pendant lights that do show up just outside of that area into that area they disappear from camera view. Can't find any hidden objects that may be obscuring them. Offset from ceiling is set to 0. No soffit in that area. They don't appear on floor above or be
  7. Thanks for advice. Eventually solved problem using wall specification/materials. Even though the lower exterior wall indicated "no change" I was able to select it and change the material to the appropriate material in the plans material list.
  8. Anybody have any idea whats going on with the intersections of these deck railings and the exterior walls? Cant get the original default siding to go away at the intersection. Have tried editing default material and making adjustments with the wall layer extents tool.
  9. Okay, Thanks, Just reset wall materials for all three rooms to default materials using room materials tab. Then used wall materials tab to reset to desired material. Seems to have worked.
  10. Hmm. Three Porches in a row. Separated by walls. All three have "No Change" in the room definition dialogue "materials" specification, but only having trouble changing wall material on one particular wall. Not actually sure how wall materials get set to "No Change" in the room definition dialogue.
  11. Thanks, I'll investigate further looking at room settings. It's a wall between two "Porches" Have a wall at the other end of the center porch that isn't having the same problem.
  12. Anyone know why exterior material on a wall would be set to "No Change" ? Every time I try to change it it reverts back to default material. Have deleted it, redrawn it Tried different wall types, but this particular wall won't let me change exterior material.
  13. Hi Larry,. I also always check keep deck framing and uncheck auto rebuild deck framing, but when I change a deck room from Deck to Unspecified all my deck framing still disappears In my current situation I have custom deck framing under a 3 season room and want to change the room to unspecified so my electrical outlets don't show up as weather proof. Have you run into this problem ? Chuck MTL Homes
  14. Thanks Gawdzira. I'll mess with it this evening. Been using CA for 8 years or so (self taught) and obviously don't visit the forum much. Have encountered this problem a couple of times before and managed to work around it by messing with roof framing settings, but since building has picked up and I'm really busy these days thought I'd check to see if anyone had other ideas before I spent too much time on it. It would be nice to be able to draw it the way its going to be built with both rafters landing on 97 1/8 inch top plates 9 1/4 inch rafters on the 10:12 pitch and 5 1/2 inch rafters on th
  15. Trying again to attach .jpg . Should show problem of fascia not matching when different pitches intersect in 3D. In real life not a problem, just trim the fascia off flat on the bottom of the steeper pitch or make the appropriate miter cuts. Constructive replies only please.
