    Cad Detail In Layout

    Yep this is what I normally do as well. I was going off into uncharted territory which did not make any sense..

    Cad Detail In Layout

    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 24x36 sheet size. I do not see a way to scale the detail Sheet only the actual detail Would you be up for doing a screen share. We use Zoom Video Conferencing. I can create a layout with all these details by working through Plan View and sending details to layout but like you said some times. files get mixed. I wan a Layout with all the details Embedded and I can just delete the ones not specific to the current project I am working on. I hope I am making sense. David

    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

    Cad Detail In Layout

    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 but if you know a better way let me know. You guys are a tremendous blessing. David

    Door label text position

    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.

    Cad Detail In Layout

    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

    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

    Copy and Paste in Place X12

    Yes I loved it but there were times when I would leave a window on top of a window ect so making you go an extra step might be helpful. I just do not want Chief to change things based on low level users. I consider Chief Architect to be an increasingly Professional Software . We use Revit as well but Chief is Streamlined for the Residential Market. Over the past six years Chief Architect has brought almost a million dollars into my business and for that I will be forever blessed. I have little to show for that success because I like toys but hey life is short. Cheers.

    Copy and Paste in Place X12

    Yeah I figured that was the reason. I do the other ways as well all the time. There is still copy , paste in place on the other menu so I can still use it when I am stubborn. I love X12 lots of great things like the point to point. Cheers.

DropBox and Google Drive If you are using Google Drive can you weigh in and let me know of any issues. appreciated..
