    3D Issues X11

    Thank you for the replies. I did update my Nvidia driver and everything seems to be working better.

    3D Issues X11

    I installed X11 about a week ago and everything seemed fine - until today. When logging on I got a message that my video card could not handle advanced lighting techniques (I think?) and now my perspective full overviews are messed up. The thing is, it's been fine until now. Did I inadvertently change something in the settings?

    Explode CAD Detail Block Text Disappears

    It worked! And FYI, the text is under "Dimensions, Roof" and that is weird.
  4. I am using a CAD detail from the bonus catalog for a wall section. When I explode the block to edit the section, the text labels disappear. I've tried seeing if something is turned off in the layer display options to no avail. Attached is an example of the original detail and the detail when I explode it. I can explode/edit CAD details from the regular library. Any suggestions?

    Orthographic Floor Overview

    Thank you Alan! That was easy.

    Orthographic Floor Overview

    In previous versions, I would take an orthographic floor overview, send it to layout, go back to the floor plan, rotate the camera 180, reselect the ortho floor overview, and have the "opposite" view of the plan, then send that view to layout. So I had side-by-side versions of the plan from two different views. Now when I do it, the layout view is connected to the OFO so when I rotate it, it rotates on layout (it didn't do this before - the OFO wasn't connected to the layout). How can I get parallel views of a plan in OFO?

    Cabinet labels

    Thanks Dermot. I get the reasoning but on a cabinet plan I want the labels facing the room. Your solution worked.

    Cabinet labels

    The cabinet labels on the side wall of the attached plan will not face the way I want. They are currently facing the wall and I want them rotated 180. When I do this, they automatically revert to the current orientation. I have played with the settings but to no avail. Any ideas???

    Inkscape

    Thanks again for the help. I was able to import the DXF and trace/redraw over it. As stated, I'm a little technically challenged but that was pretty easy.

    Inkscape

    Thanks for the responses. Is tracing faster than a redraw? Sounds like redrawing is the simplest thing for me.

    Inkscape

    I posted earlier about converting a Sketchup plan to CA. The person who claims this can be done says using Inkscape will allow me to take the plan, put it in Chief, and edit it. I'm assuming this only works in 2D. Also I am not technologically savvy like many of you so use small words and simple explanations. Or just tell me it's easier to redraw the plan in Chief instead of messing with this other program.

    Convert Sketchup Plan To Ca

    I do some work for a contractor who heard from a draftsman that there's a program or app that can convert a Sketchup plan to CA. He claims the plan will magically import and I'll be able to do revisions. This sounds too good to be true (which means it probably is). Anyone heard of this?

    Wall Elevation View Incomplete X7

    Thanks to all for your responses. I did contact tech support and it was a video card issue. Updated driver installed and all is well.

    Wall Elevation View Incomplete X7

    I am having an issue when I use the wall elevation view. Cabinets/appliances will partially disappear. When I scroll in or out, they will sometimes reappear. This does not happen if I do a cross section view. See attached example. I have not had this issue in previous versions and it only happens with wall elevations.
