  1. GeneDavis's post in Open Valley was marked as the answer   
    I belong to a club of about a thousand members.  At any event or meeting, we all wear our name tag badges around our necks on nice logo (it's a car club) lanyards.  It is a great big group, much larger than my Rotary club meet, which is nametags also.  It is simple courtesy to wear the tags and badges, even though most of us know most all the members.
     
    It is a courtesy here to do the same thing.  Your sig which gives very important information relating to software version and hardware on which it runs is essential to knowing how to respond to a question or problem or issue.
     
    So be courteous.
     
    Attached is a view of a plan with valleys in the roofscape.  I pulled back the planes at one of the valleys, six inches exactly.  I could make a copy of the building right alongside this one, auto roof it, edit the roofs away to leave just two 6" valley planes (the "valley patch"), retexture them as galvanized steel, and then copy and paste this into the roof with the gap valley.
     
    So this was a courtesy, and we'd like to see you back sometime, all badged up.

    It's a toggle, and you might want to add the three buttons to your toolbar, as most need to swap and change depending on situation, and it's too tedious to make the change going to Edit>Preferences>Marquee Selection . . . 
     
    See the attached for all three added to the toolbar:  Contained, Intersected, and Centers.
  3. GeneDavis's post in Corner boards not showing in layout elevation view was marked as the answer   
    Solved!  Deleted the window in layout and ran it again, and it's OK and with cornerboards.

    Or as you probably know, control the placement by casing width, using the wide casing that locates your jammed door correctly, then select all doors placed thusly, and change their casing widths.
     
    Chief does not have an auto-placement feature such as what you may want, but you can go on the Suggestions forum and make your case.
  6. GeneDavis's post in Vanity arched header - How to? was marked as the answer   
    A curved ceiling plane would make the surface, but then you would have to deal with the vertical surface and its bottom shape.  So, to do it best and quickly, just model the center and the flanking rectilinear soffits as one polyline solid.
