  1. I've used a split faced block on a number of steel buildings that had slit faced block to 8'. I had used a block (multiple colors) that a user made quite a while back. She was an airline steward that did a lot of Chief work on the side. She retired and don't recall her name. It was probably 10 years ago. I have not opened an older version of Chief that may have her library. I opened one project that I used it on, but  X15 did not recognize the texture. I haven't done any Split faced block for a number of years. It did look very good. I may search an older version of Chief to see if I can find it. I don't typically open the older versions.

  2. I produce condocs in Autocad, but do preliminal plans in Chief. Have been since '94. The process for me is to export to dwg. The layers have to be adjusted (color, etc.) easy enough.

    The symbols etc. import as blocks that need to be exploded and cleaned up if used if needed. A bit tedious if needed. The engineers or Architects that I use would never do that. If you don't have a dwg program, I don't think there is a way to send a cleaned up Chief file. 

  3. Just an attempt. I didn't try to start with a polyline. I did a curved railing (I didn't see a curved wall option) which gave me a radius that I could specify. Changed the wall type to interior 4 and unchecked railing. May not be the best way.

  4. I don't usually address the cabinetry views, but was curious about this. Opened a plan and placed a wall cabinet and the default was checked as frameless. I didn't change that and I had a flat bottom. Went back and checked framed in the dbx and got the recess.

  5. After seeing these posts, I checked and found that I too was missing a most of the wood textures. Called support and went through deleting core content and reference files and reinstalled core content. This did not resolve the missing content. Called support again and got instructions to manually install. This also did not work. All textures worked well using X10 beta. The update took out the textures. Hope they resolve this quickly.
