  1. Does anyone know of a program that converts pdf file into a .plan file ? I am always getting advertisements for converting pdf to .dwg file. Thanks, Mike
  2. In the last hour every time I go to delete something I get the message "Do you want to delete the selected object". This wasn't happening before. Something got changed. I'm sure there is a setting for this somewhere in the program. Does anyone know what and where that setting is ? Thank You, Mike
  3. I am adding an exterior stairs to an existing two story house. I started by adding a 48"x48" landing on the second floor. I then added the stairs to the second floor landing going down to the first floor patio slab. The problem is the stairs only show on the second floor plan. How do I get them to also show up on the first floor plan ? Thanks, Mike
  4. I have been using Chief for 3 years, 1 year full time. Prior to Chief I was using using AutoCAD since 1993. At first I found Chief difficult to learn because of the different terminology used in each program. With help from the people on this forum I am almost as productive as I was with AutoCAD. One year from now I should be more productive. The people on this forum are a great asset to all Chief uses and are more that willing to help you. With that said, I like the idea of a So. Cal. user group. I live in Simi Valley. Years ago I belonged to the AutoCA
  5. I am working on a small remodel project. The original house has a raised foundation. In the past they added an addition to the rear of the house that has a slab foundation. The problem I am having is most of the existing slab footings are shown with solid lines for both the foundation and footing. One of the footings is shown correctly, a solid line for the foundation and dashed line for the footing. Does anyone know why this is happening. I have included the plan for your review. Thanks, Mike Houck Design 2.plan
  6. Thank you, Joey. That worked.
  7. Here is my plan file. The deck railing shows in plan view but the stair railing does not show. Yes these are auto stairs. In 3D view the stair railing is displayed. In plan view they do not show. Thanks, Mike Papata
  8. I'm drawing a deck that is 30" above grade. The deck railing shows up but the stair railing does not generate. Is there a setting that I am missing ? Thanks, Mike
  9. Did that and re-started computer and still have grainy elevations. Attached is a screen shot of the graphic settings. I will need to look at this on Wednesday. Everyone is waiting for me. We are going to Laughlin, NV for a couple of days. Thanks, Mike
  10. No. I just did. Went to preferences then video card status, it still shows Intel UHD Graphics 630. I do not know how to change it.
  11. I followed Alaska_Son's and Eric's instructions and the elevations still are just as grainy, no improvement.
  12. Just tried Alaskan_Son's instructions. I got as far as the Graphics Settings then choose an app to set preference. I do not see the "Desktop App" in the pull down menu. I see "Classic App" and Universal App" see my screen shot. When I select "Universal App" I get another pull down menu below that says "Select an app". Under that pull down list I do not see Chief Architect in the list. See screen shot. I'm not sure how to get Chief Architect to show up in this list. Everything has been working fine until recently. Yesterday is the first time I ran an elevation view
  13. I have never done a search in the forum before. Not sure what word(s) I should use to find this topic.
