  1. Not sure if this is the correct topic area but for some reason, I can not figure out how to display the electrical fixture I just dropped in. Here are the steps I've taken: 1. create wall elevation (E4) 2. clip wall elevation in plan view making sure the fixture is well within the limits. 3. saved, exited, restarted .plan 4. added light fixture in plan view 5. opened elevation by double-clicking the callout in .plan 6. display opens sans light fixture Sorry had to zip the file... didn't have time to figure out how to shrink it...

    Electrical Fixtures not displaying in Elevation

    That is very odd... It wasn't displaying like that before. I have a feeling it may have been a graphics card issue. My GeForce is no longer recognized on my computer. I'll be taking it in today to see if that resolves the issue. Thank you both for the help. Out of curiosity what program do you use to record a live screen share? If the problem still isn't resolved I'd like to see if that would help in the diagnostics. Thanks again!

    Out of curiosity are there any downsides to unchecking this?

    Mouse issues

    Just jumped into this thread because I'm having this very issue. I did try @HamlinBC fix to no avail. Has anyone had this issue? Resolution. I've tried adjusting the sensitivity issue but it doesn't seem to be a sensitivity issue.

    Nvidia Drivers Updated and a possible "Fix"

    Thanks for all the help. I've been using 390.77 for a few hours and the issues I've been having seem to have been resolved. I'll update my post if I run into them in the next few weeks but for now, it seems to be working great! Thank you again for all the help and expertise! :: UPDATE :: I've been using Chief heavily over the weekend and today with no apparent issues. Thanks for the fix!

    Nvidia Drivers Updated and a possible "Fix"

    Hello everyone, I just skimmed through this post coming over from another. I'm having the issue described above (running Nvidia GTX 1060) and am unable to Roll back my driver. Not sure if there is a way around this or if anyone has figured out a permanent fix. I'm also having this same issue anytime I generate an elevation and then attempt to click out of it.

    Were you able to resolve this issue? I'm having the exact same problem.
  13. When I print to pdf (600/1200/2400dpi makes no difference) the resulting image comes out as shown in the attached screen shot. also, there appears to be some image on top of the distorted portion on the pdf. If you rest your cursor over the distorted image it changes to a cross hair and allows you to click the area showing a blue box that directly relates to the portion of the drawing that is distorted. Please also see the attached pdf for reference. Has anyone experienced this or does anyone have any idea why it might do this?

    Print to PDF distorts portions of the drawing

    I am using Adobe Acrobat Through my Creative Cloud Subscription with Adobe I am using Adobe Acrobat and you are correct it only appears to happen near the bubble transparent fill areas. Also, I have not been able to find the "Save as PDF" option in Chief that everyone keeps talking about. I assumed it would pop up as a file type after the "Save As" option but it does not. Thank you both for your help.

    Thank you for this tip, however, I do not see a "Save as PDF" option. Am I missing something?
  16. After adding an extension to an existing home I ran into an issue with the ceiling heights in the now open floor plan being different. I went to universally adjust them but it raises the entire problem rather than leveling them out. I'm getting the message "Ceiling values may not be changed as the floor above this room has varying heights. Has anyone encountered this? How should I go about fixing this issue? Thanks.

    Problem with Different Ceiling heights in open floor plan

    My apologies for getting back to you all so late, I appreciate all the input (and friendly debate ). This seemed to do the trick thanks so much!

    Problem with Different Ceiling heights in open floor plan

    I was unable to replicate this result. Here are my steps: 1. double click balcony to display specific room settings. 2. Change room type to "unspecified" 3. View room from floor below = no change 4. Edit Floor Defaults while on second floor = no Change 5. Edit Ceiling Defaults while on first floor = no Change What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help!

    Problem with Different Ceiling heights in open floor plan

    I did not! Thank you very much that seemed to work. I tried this but to no avail. It just pulls the same problem up by "x" inches... WORKINGProposed1_Shreeve.zip

    Problem with Different Ceiling heights in open floor plan

    It is a two story plan I've tried doing that but I think because the addition on the first floor extends further into the backyard than the second floor this is where the problem begins. I tried uploading the .plan(x6) file but I was getting a 200 error code.
  21. We recently started using CAx7 to design and build all of our jobs requiring plans but often run into situations needing the stamp of an engineer. We need to find an engineer that would be able to use the work we've put into producing the design and layout files to produce their set and collaborate with us in the process. Our typical requirements are for small home additions and random structural approvals as required by the building department. If anyone is interested, or knows someone who is, please let me know. I am also fairly new to CAx7 (background is Revit/ACAD/Rhino) so there may be a bit of a learning curve on the front end as I get over my "bad habits".

    Looking for Orange County,CA Engineer to Collaborate on Jobs

    Thanks for all the feedback. I suppose for now we'll have to continue to send .dwg or deliver prints. On a fairly similar note has any used Chief to Collaborate at all? Is it useful for this type of trade to trade communication the way Revit is? Thanks again.

    Match Properties & Walls

    I am fairly new to CArch(usingX6) but I've also wanted to do this when changing foundation/slab properties. A. where is the tool located (I did say I was a noob correct?) B. would it even work for what I'm wanting to do? Basically, the existing foundation was a floating slab under an old addition. Now we are going to demo this and build it properly to match the conditions of the adjacent kitchen (which I have built properly).

    Elevation Callout Help

    I'd like to be able to create a single elevation callout in the center of the room as is shown in the attached image. Is there a way to do this?
