    Plan View

    I download the residential template from the list. I see the default saved plan views. How do I get those save plan views in my existing template file ? Thanks, Mike

    Plan View

    I was watching a CA video on Saved Plan Views. In the Video he said that CA was shipped with 12 default plan views. I'm looking in the plan view folder under the project browser and there is no default plan views. Is there another location where these default plan views might be saved ? If so, how do I get them into the plan view folder under the project browser ? Thanks, Mike

    Layout window sent to the layout page

    Layout window sent to the layout page

    Can we modify the shape of the layout window sent to the layout page ? The surveyor sent me his plans for a house I am designing. I needed to rotate the layout window in order to fit on my plans at a 1"=20' scale. The surveyor has a lot of stuff on his plans that I do not need to show. In order to to this I would need to reshape the rectangular shape of the layout window in order crop out this unneeded information. Thanks, Mike

    Cad Details

    In the video I watched they said nothing about setting defaults for detail. It makes since. So I create a layer set for the details. Do I need to create a layer set for each detail scale that I will be using ? Thanks, Mike

    Cad Details

    I am drawing a number of details my engineer sent over. On prior projects I would draw them in AutoCAD then bring them into CA. I want to start using CA cad detail management. I watch one of CA video's on drawing details. It said that details are drawn in real scale. Then send to the layout page in at the desired scale. I started to add the text to the detail I just drew and the text is to large. Also the arrow is way to large. In the video he added 6" high text and a leader with an arrow and it looked to be the right size. I way using 4.5" high text and it looked much larger than the 6" high text in the video. I must be missing something. How do I get the text and arrow sizes to show correctly using the cad detail management tool ? I will be sending the details to the layout page at 3/4"=1'-0". Thank You, Mike

    Printer Problem

    I recently replaced my HP Designsjet 750c plus plotter with an HP Designjet T525 36" wide. I was printing a job today and ran out of 36" wide rolls of paper. I have some 24" wide rolls that I loaded up. I need the layout plan to be rotated 90 degrees in order to print on the 24" wide roll of paper. I went into the print dialog and selected portrait for the rotation. The drawing does not rotate. It splits the drawing in half and places half of the drawing above the over half. I also printed as a pdf file and tried rotating the pdf to print the plan. I still could not get the plan to rotated 90 degrees for printing. Does anyone know how I can get the layout plan to rotate 90 degrees so I can print the 36"x24" plan on a 24" wide roll of paper ? Is this an issue with Chief or is it an issue with HP ? Thanks, Mike

    Text problem

    A few months ago I bought a new Dell computer. I'm using the same monitor since it fairly new. I upgraded to CA 12 at the same time I bought the new computer. I have CA 11 on the new computer as well. When I view the note sheets in CA 11 everything looks fine. It only messed up when I view in CA 12. I have corrected some of the text by double clicking on the text, one line at a time, This for some reason this corrects the text size. Thanks, Mike

    Text problem

    I already had, one line at a time changed the notes you revised. I tried it on one of the other notes. It worked on half of the text . The text is now not on top of each other. Half of the text is about twice as big as the correct text size. I have the first 6 lines of text to big. The next line is correct. Next line to big, Next line correct. Next 5 lines to big. Next 8 lines are correct. I have no idea why it would correct some text and leave the other lines twice as big. It must be the mystery of Chief. At least half was corrected Which leaves me less work to correct the other half. Thanks, Mike
