    Editing All Instances of One Note

    If I have several instances of a Note in, say, several interior elevations, that is in a Note Schedule (in a CAD detail), can I then go back and edit all instances of that note at the same time, or do I have to go in and edit them all individually? Tried Help and searched here. Surprised not to find anything. Thanks!

    Loft floor is showing on top of wall

    Not exactly sure what you mean, but you have some kind of polyline solid on the first floor that is the concrete material.

    Green & Purple Fill Patterns on New Monitors

    The image I attached doesn't show the green and purple as obviously, but still shows on my monitor even looking at it from here. Probably fixable in the setting somewhere. Thanks folks.
  5. Got a new computer and triple 43" 4K monitors which I am thrilled about, but ran across this little quirk where some of my fill patterns, which are clearly designated as black lines, read as alternating green and purple on the screen. I tried playing about with the color settings of the monitors, but couldn't see much change. They don't print this way, so it's a pretty minor thing, but just curious if anyone here had some technical knowledge of LED TV's that might explain this. They are TCL 43S425 43 Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart Roku LED TV (2018). I have a 32 and a 65 at home and have been very happy with them. Or is it the graphics card? MSI RTX 2060 SUPER 8GB GDDR6 Thanks! Hope everyone is safe and well.

    panoramic background picture orientation change?

    I got a Ricoh Theta a while back and I guess I just got lucky with the orientation the first time when I was trying to create a spherical backdrop for a new custom home with an ocean view where I was hoping I could give the client an idea of what their view would be like at eye level on the second floor on a fairly steep lot. I got a story pole with a camera mount on top and guesstimated the height to eye level on that floor. You can operate the camera remotely with a smart phone app. But, second time I didn't get lucky and my solution was taking a series of 360 panos rotating the story pole about 20 degrees at at time and then picking the image that most closely matched the actual view. Not perfect, but with a lot of disclaimers to the client, there is a real wow factor to using this tool. I logged a feature request to have the ability to orient the pano within Chief. The more people that do this, the more likely they might do something about it. Can't imagine this would be technically difficult, just a matter of getting it to bubble up on the priority list.

    Commas in Note, Note Schedule

    Thanks. Now I have to FIND it.

    Commas in Note, Note Schedule

    What causes these commas to appear? Nothing in Help and searching here didn't turn up anything. Went digging through the plan trying to find some stray additional note I put somewhere, but can't find it.

    cultured vanity sink top

    You can't explode sub objects in a Sketchup file imported to Chief. You have to do whatever editing of the object in Sketchup, and then bring it in to Chief. It's always been this way.

    cultured vanity sink top

    Don't remember ever seeing those in the core catalog. Why wouldn't you just use an undermount sink in a countertop?

    Printing Grid Lines

    Yeah, thought about that too. Just thought there might be setting or something.

    Printing Grid Lines

    Okay, thanks. Tricky to get a snip to scale, but do-able. Not critical, just thought it would help with verifying an as-built plan in the field.

    Printing Grid Lines

    I never have the grid showing, and did a little search but couldn't seem to find an answer. I would like a print to PDF to show the gridlines. Is this an option at all?

    Custom Layer Set Dimensions

    Sounds like you need to set up a Saved Dimension Default and assign that to your Foundation Layer Set.
