    Everyone has been to school, some instructors you like, some you don't. Some instructors like some students more than others, that's life, but if you're going to give me a hard time every time I ask a question then I'm going to speak up.      

    Educate yourself a little bit. I know this isn't your first time on this forum. So I know you've seen the numerous times they've posted about how to ask good questions to get good answers. Read into this a little bit. If they ask you to clarify something, don't have an attitude. Show a little respect. I've been using Chief for YEARS. I wouldn't be where I was today without some of these guys. I can't begin to tell you the amount of times some of these guys got my as* out of a predicament. Maybe apologize to the forum and learn from some of the best. Because some of the best are the ones you're fighting with...

    Eric might be the greatest guy on here for those who are Architects and those that have knowledge in this field,but for me I have always felt he was not interested in helping or a little flexible in his thinking to help someone like me with a limited vocabulary and knowledge.     

    Where the hel* did you gather that conclusion from? There have been numerous times where I've searched for something on this forum I was having an issue with and quite a few of those times it was ERIC's response that helped me figure out what I needed. The guys chiming in here are the guys that help other out on the forum the most. Why bicker with them? I guess you should just memorize Chief's support number because quite a few of these guys are probably going to overlook your posts in the future... Good Luck!

  3. I've been in love with the "Frank the Architect" Font for about a year now. Before that I used Graphite Light. Never cared for Chief Blueprint. When I was using Chief Blueprint I was told once by a builder that my fonts made my prints look "unprofessional" so I switched to Graphite Light. That builder turned out to be an a$$ anyway so why I let that get to me I'll never know. Lol. I understand if you're using bubble letters or something else cartoonish how that could make a print look "unprofessional", but not CB?! 

  4. Hey Mick. Thanks for replying. I tried to call priority support and was met with a message saying they were ALL in a meeting. LOL. I will try back later. In the meantime I just have to press forward. I currently have 8 clients on my desk right now and have no time to really dig deep until late this evening. I did go into my preferences and noticed that the user library was greyed out as well as the browse button... That was a tad confusing... see pic attached. I will try to dive into this this evening. Thanks again for the reply. Have a good day.


  5. Strangest thing happened today. I opened Chief on my laptop and my User Catalog had nothing in it. Closed and restarted Chief and still nothing. Anyone ever come across this? I spent hours creating that library. I usually back things up every few months and that was on my to do list, but I've been swamped with a renovation, work, family, and a new rescue pup. Any thoughts?

  6. Steve, I was actually going to send you an email regarding this. I've noticed that you use a mac in your videos. Currently I switch between my laptop and desktop to work on projects. Sometimes I'd rather sit on the patio with a glass of wine, rather than sit at my desk all day. Do you think there would be issues working on a plan on a mac desktop and them switching to a windows laptop?

    I think you’re client's bigger problem will be the flooding in his home. 

    Please see an architect or draftsman to correct your roof. 

    I’m not sure why nobody has mentioned it here yet. 

    I didn’t open the plan. I’m just looking at the first image in the post. Yikes!

    You got that by looking at the front elevation pic? Impressive. I don't think he understood when he was asked to post his plan. He shared the layout in a pdf format. Not the plan file. 

  8. To get the cap on the half wall, open the wall and check "railing" in the wall specification dialogue. Under the "Rail Style" tab select "solid" and your cap should appear. It kinda looks like you used a full height wall and drug it down. That also fixes your drywall issue above it.

  9. There’s a running joke in my house that if you need to fall asleep fast, put on a Chief Architect video. I’m not saying they are boring or slow. They are very informative. I just can’t keep my eyes open while trying to watch them. Lol

    Rosco2017 - What did you update besides your video card drivers?

    I was behind on some windows updates and a video card update. Are your file accessed from one computer or do you use something like OneDrive? I thought that could have been my problem, but after updating everything it seemed to work fine. 

  11. Huh? Funny. This happened to me on three separate plans over the past few days. I'm impatient, so I just Ctrl+Alt+Delete to close the plan and reopen it. Eventually the plan cooperated. I did notice this only happened when working on roofs. I became fed up and just updated everything. It seemed to work okay after that.
