  1. I thought I would start here before calling SSA. I just installed X14 (was using X13) and upgraded to Windows 11. Since then (yesterday) I have been receiving the attached error message. Chief shuts down, I reopen it, continue working, and everything "seems" fine. I just updated my signature to reflect my computers specs. I got a new system at the beginning of the year which my IT guy assured me is more than sufficient for Chief (I am not a computer person). Any ideas? I can contact support but I have been successful here with all you Chief gurus.
  2. It seems the pet doors in the catalog are designed to go in a wall. Is there a way to insert a pet door into a door?
  3. I want it to look like this:
  4. Is there a way to put a pet door in a door?
  5. Thanks for the input. I get using the shape tab for the top, but I don't know how to use it for the bottom. I'm not going to spend a ton of time on this - we are replacing this unit and adding a portico so the current window is going away. I was just curious about how to do it and if there's a way to shape the bottom of a window.
  6. I am drawing an as-built of this house. How do I do the top arched transom?
  7. Thank you for the replies. I did update my Nvidia driver and everything seems to be working better.
  8. 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?
  9. It worked! And FYI, the text is under "Dimensions, Roof" and that is weird.
  10. 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?
  11. 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?
  12. Thanks Dermot. I get the reasoning but on a cabinet plan I want the labels facing the room. Your solution worked.
  13. 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???
