  1. Hello All- I've searched hi and low to find the button to push on this one and have come up short. See example pic for reference. What I want to do is set up a default 1-time for certain rooms (baths, utility, mud, etc.) that when I choose that room label designation I don't have to go back in and add a room polyline or standard area polyline, choose fill type, step step step. Trying to eliminate steps. I've looked into the material region info and other areas and I just can't figure it out. I'm sure someone will answer this in about 12 seconds with a nice eye-roll and a huge sigh. I get it, but I'm done hunting this down. Thank you in advance. FLOOR MATERIAL REGION DEFAULT.pdf
  2. Ken- I would agree with your assessment in that our computer rigs need upgrading for sure. I'll start the process for all 3 computer stations I have at the office. Thanks for taking time to review and the advice.
  3. Chief group- Thank you for all your input! I'll go back through and take your advice and see where we go from there and on future projects. Thanks again, Justin
  4. Hello All- I've got this giant file size on this project and it's giving me some microsoft blue circle of death each move I make with the mouse button now (very slow to work in). I don't know what's going on with this but I can't seem to figure out how to make the file size smaller and not have the computer / program calculate a bazillion items before it allows me to make another move. In fact, in order to upload the plan and layout files I needed to compress them to get below the 14 mb limit. I couldn't even upload the layout file due to being over the 14mb limit here. Sheesh! Thank you for your help in advance. Justin Update on memory... GOT 32G from 16G. THE SUMMIT - COMPRESSED PLAN
  5. I have a curved wall that creates my turret style stairwell and I have a few issues that i need your help with. -first off the windows that are located in the turret stairwell below the pony wall have the brick finish misaligned when they span from floor to floor. -second when I put a roof over the stair well the brick finish will continue all the way to the roof from the foundation and cover up the windows. i did fix this with removing the roof and just creating a solid in its place. but I would like it to actually work as is should. one plan file is the house with the errors, the second file (test) is just the stairwell and is in the same position for copy and pasting back and fourth... Thanks everyone, I'm on a corporate account so i cannot add my individual equipment to the signature. -Chief X14 -I7-11700 @ 2.5GHZ -16GM RAM -RTX 2060 Thanks for your help! -George turret stairwell
  6. Thanks everyone. Great insight and I appreciate the time to respond. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
  7. Hello All- Looking for some suggestions on what materials from the manufacturer's catalogue downloads we have access to that will mimic the picture I've added. Customer wants a smooth, tight-fit linear stone pattern and a horizontal wood-type veneer. Thank you-
  8. Hello all- Am I missing these in our catalogues or are they hidden away somewhere special? I cannot find these options anywhere. If they're not then is there a way to create one with a standard door or has someone created one of these themselves? Thanks and have a great day- Justin
  9. Roger that. Here it is without the zip. Thank you- COVAULT_3-16-20.plan
  10. Hello All- For whatever reason my cabinet schedule can add the schedule number to the floor plans but the window and door schedule does not. Hmmm..Closed the plan tried again, nothing. It's supposed to be a simple box check under the label tabs in each of the schedule dialogue boxes but hey what do I know....Any hints? COVAULT
  11. I have NO earthly idea how those doors got there. Oh my! That last comment from Alaskan Son was AWESOME! Brahahaha
  12. Ummmmm WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That stupid wall between the master and great room was the issue. Deleted it and the rest of the master wing inside walls and presto, all's well with the world again. OMG. That was breaking my spirits over the last few hours. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
  13. Joe- Yeah, I looked at the disk space remaining and I've got plenty of space. Less than 40% taken up so far. Thanks for the help. J
  14. Also, I'm sure there is a way to purge unused walls / layers / files associated with the plan? Any suggestions?
  15. I also went through and turned off any other layer that was not necessary. A blip faster but still crashes when I move a wall in the master bathroom area that I'm working on. Hmmm. Any other suggestions?
  16. Ok, so I removed the pdf survey from the plan. Turned off roof planes. Turned off any labels that didn't need to show. Deleted the suv. ....And it still crashes. Hmmm Are there other layers that need to be turned off or could there be something with the staircase? I don't know, I'm grasping at straws here. ha
  17. Ok, so I've been working on the plan now for the last 2 days and each day I save it as a new plan. Within an hour of saving it again this morning I started getting some slowdown in the commands. It didn't take but 5 minutes to then get to the point where it was not going to let me move a wall, adjust a sink or delete some hanging shelves in the master closet area. I have no idea what's going on. It's slowest and actually locks up when viewing the main level but is still very slow on second and basement levels. Things to note: Ran a virus check - nope (this file and whole computer). ANY other plan I open up through Chief 11 works just fine. I rebooted the computer several times. Any suggestions and or a way to clean the plan for unused files etc would be helpful. I don't even know if that's the answer. If, at the end of the day, I cannot get this cleared up is there a way to transfer to a new file without bringing the lockup issue with it? Gotta get this out today. Sheesh! Thank you all in advance for your suggestions. Justin CHAMPION_1-2-20.plan
  18. Hey Everyone- I've got a situation where I'd like to place text on a radius and I'm having trouble figuring this out. Is there a way to bend a text box to follow a radius I set up? Example: Along a curved street. Thank you- Justin
  19. I KNEW IT!!!!!!!!!, Just a simple button click. Sheesh. That was it, they work now. Unbelievable. What a simple fix. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Justin
  20. Yeah, even a new plan does the same thing. Here is a screenshot of the defaults for temp. dims. Thanks for the help....
  21. Well....that's what's happening in your version. Mine, does not do that. My question is what button do I need to push to make that happen? lol
