  1. I am beating a dead horse here. I have a Disto X3 and it easily sends dimensions to Chief but Chief will not accept the fraction format the Disto uses a straight line numerator over the denominator. Cheif fractions use an angle in their fractions and will not accept the Disto format. Does anyone know how to fix this or change Chiefs fraction format?
  2. Chief says you can use Disto X3 In the program but the Disto X3 sends fractions numerator over denominator not with an angle so your Chief plan will not accept that format. Does anyone have a solution? Can you change the fraction format in Chief?
  3. I gave up on the Disto X3 the big problem is how it sends the fraction format 1/2 Lieca uses numerator over denominator not angled. Is there a way to change the fraction format in chief?
  4. Chief is terrible blah blah blah.. I have made over a hundred grand seven straight years with Chief Architect versus Revit I pay a boatload for and make pennies. If Chief did one new thing with X13 it's still worth it..
  5. Yep this is what I normally do as well. I was going off into uncharted territory which did not make any sense..
  6. I am not sure I explained myself correctly. I create CAD Details in Plan View everyday and send them to layout to whatever scale I want . This is seamless. I am talking about while I am in Layout View I open up Cad Detail Management and create a detail in Layout View. It opens up a Detail Sheet that has to be zoomed in and when you send a Library Item say a Chief Detail it goes to the sheet at 1:1 and has to be shrunk to fit on that detail sheet: when I send that to Layout it has to be scaled. If I am in in the Detail Sheet View and I go too Print " Drawing Sheet Set Up it just shows the Arch
  7. Share with us the process you use with Blender and Chief Architect in terms of integration. I would like to know if its worth it. David
  8. Go to where you customize tool bars and add the old break tool to your menu bar. There is a universal one at the bottom menu bar. I added one on my Tool Bar Configuration I did this with the old copy and place which has been removed from the right click menus. I never used it for windows, doors, cabinets etc. Cheers
  9. I guess what I was getting tripped up on in the past is when you go to Cad Detail Management and create a new Cad Detail the detail page it comes up zoomed out and you have to zoom in and add your details. I did that today and added a bunch of Cad Details to my Layout Template. This is one of the things that I have been to busy over the years to take a moment and figure it out. Thanks for the help guys. Also when you grab a detail from the Library it comes massively over sized for the details page and you have to shrink it. Is there any preferences or default fixes. I am going to look and see
  10. I just click on the door and the small square box allows you to move it any where you want. If your talking about as a default you change that I think in the DBX.
  11. I love the saved Plan Views and use them all the time. It was a learning curve at first but it was a good upgrade in my humble opinion. David
  12. Does anybody use CAD Detail Management for creating a Cad Detail in Layout? and for what purpose. In 8 years I have never used it once but If I am missing something I would like to know. David

  14. Here is a real tech question. Where do you change signature line on forums. I do not see it in the edit profile. I need to up date my PC info so I can impress everyone because at 61 years old that is important to me lol. David
