    Breaking Stairs in X12

    Watch the "what's new" video closely and you'll see what they're talking about. I had to watch it a couple of times to catch it.

    This is what I do and makes it easier to dimension for engineer.

    Technical Support Question

    From what I understand, SSA technical support and "training" are different. Technical support is really for problems caused by the program. Technical support is really not there to train you how to use the program. They have a fee for that. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

    dishwasher moving on own when in a cabinet`

    I can't duplicate your problem in X12. Are you using a downloaded dishwasher?

    stair well issue

    As mentioned, don't use that tool. Use an open below room or auto stairwell.

    X12 - Copy and Paste In Place

    This is what I've done and used for so many years. I'll continue. Glad it will still work. Started my first plan yesterday in X12 which will have a little bit of everything. I pray it goes well. So far so good.

    X12 layout question

    I've got a bad situation and trying to see if it can be an easy fix with X12. Has anyone tried to open two layouts and copy items from one layout to another and then relink the layout? Trying to keep from resending things from one plan to a layout for the other plan. Hopefully this doesn't sound too confusing.

    Adding rebar to patio slab

    I show all steel and rebar in cad details. That is what the engineer wants and the planning department.

    X12 BETA Now Available To Public...

    Copied and opened a couple of X11 plans in X12. No problems or crashing when selecting stairs (two sets of stairs had custom made handrails) and opened them. One plan was very involved and seemed fine after a preliminary look when bringing forward.

    X12 BETA Now Available To Public...

    Downloaded X12 yesterday evening. No problems migrating my user libraries over. I was surprised how fast the install was for everything. I will use it on my next new project. Have several involved ongoing plans that I will probably finish in X11.

    X12 BETA Now Available To Public...

    Yea I know. I worry about doing new plans when they first release a new version, but I may need to break my rule. I have a job coming up where if I can break the stairs to make a certain part of the stairs wider, that will save me some headache and made it easier. I've been waiting for this feature for a long time. Think I'll download it this weekend and try it.

    Importing DWG detail files

    So very true. Many times if I feel something is missing, I'll change Chief's background to black and see if something is white.

    When you download and open the program, does it still say "Beta"?

    The only thing I see in my digital locker is the current X11 and a download for "Chief Architect X3 Beta information" with no product key. X3???
