  1. I did install the studio drivers and have had less issues with CAX13 crashing recently.
  2. Richard, It has to do with the fact that I use the same computer but because I set the Windows default to a second screen at 1080 and I make that my main screen is why I believe this is beyond CA Because even if I move the screen back to the 4k screen on my laptop it doesn't effect the text boxes when my second screen is the default main screen at 1080. It only affects the text boxes when the 4k screen in the set as the main screen. This tells me that Windows is more likely the culprit and not CA because if it was CA then moving from one monitor to the next with different resolutions would have the same effect on the text boxes if it was CA.
  3. I've found that going from one resolution to another always creates this problem. My home monitor and second screen in my office is 1080 but my laptop is 4K. Most of the other staff on my team had computers that were 1080. If I open the files they worked on in 1080 with my 4k laptop all of the text would do that. So after numerous attempts at trial and error to figure this out (since Support had no answer to this issue) I figured out that if I set my second screen (#2 in image) that has a 1080 resolution as the "main display" in the windows settings and use my laptop as the second screen it resolves the issue. So obviously it's not a Chief architect issue, it's a Windows resolution issue with text boxes.
  4. Anyone aware of Chief's preferred driver version from Nvidia? Gameready Drivers or Studio Drivers?
  5. All my drafting staff make anywhere in this range, depending on years of experience. Most started while in college and have worked their way up, very few have been with me longer than 3 years as my company is not that old, but I've retained them through the pandemic, they have flexibility and they are treated well. They enjoy their jobs and enjoy learning as we go. I also offer 2 weeks PTO to my full time staff.

  7. Brian, Thank you. The reset options panel worked. I didn't realize that was a thing. robdyck mentioned it but I didn't know it was in that panel. Thank you for clarifying it's location. All is right with the world now.
  8. Anyone else having an issue where the Wall Type Definitions box can not be adjusted in size? I can only adjust it vertically and not horizontally. Thought this could be a Beta thing but after updating it this AM it's still doing it.
  9. Are there any additional updates and features, bug list, etc?
  10. Thank you. We prefer to input the information ourselves since the export Res Check never worked that well in prior versions and also we have a better understanding of the wall systems we are recording. We just did an export to ResCheck and it seems to work better now. Still not clear on what walls are which but I guess we can suffer through that for now.
  11. see below, usually has all of this information displayed, thermal envelope, wall heights, etc
  12. We noticed this morning that nothing is calculating like it used to in the Materials List for the General Section once upgrading to X13. Anyone else know of an issue or having an issue with this? I've submitted a ticket. See attached for reference.
  13. So some older GTX cards are supposed to support real time raytracing with the latest drivers but X13 doesn't recognize this. Any chance we could see an update to support it? "GTX cards that will gain basic ray tracing effects and low ray counts include the Titan XP, Titan X, GTX 1080 Ti, GTX 1080, GTX 1070 Ti, GTX 1070, GTX 1060 6GB, GTX 1660 Ti (Turing), GTX 1660 (Turing)."
  14. If an builder couldn't build that based on that view then they shouldn't be building houses. That's why elevation views are important as well. However, we do fill the first floor planes as a solid similar to what was shown in an earlier post to differentiate what floor plate the roofs start on.
  15. Why give the option of insetting the door jambs if the door isn't going to move with it? I have as built in a church that I'm working on and this is a 12" wall with a 4" door frame that is inset 4" into the wall. What is the point of giving control to your object's pieces that totally disconnect from the functionality of the entire object? Makes zero sense. Anyone have a solution other than trying to frame walls to act as the inset area?
  16. Figured it out. On the outside I have a stone wall up to 14' high so first floor wall is a 6" with Stone Veneer up to 10'. 2nd Floor wall is a 6" wall with a stone veener pony wall 4' high and then stucco up to the roof. The pony wall was creating the issue. So I'm going to have to figure out a different way to build the stone veneer up that high.
  17. I show the window outline that is being built over as "selected" you can see the dimensions and handles displayed.
  18. I have this situation where I have a 2 story venue with a curtain wall system at the end of the wall. I can't seem to get the walls to not build over the 2nd row of my windows. Bottom two rows are on the first floor and the 3 top rows are on the 2nd floor. Any ideas what can be done to get this to build right? I tried moving them all to a single floor and it didn't make a difference. Any thoughts on how to model this accurately?
  19. I was wondering if anyone could help me with macro's. Is there a way to add multiple macro's and get a total? If so could you add a video, I'm more of a visual person
