  1. Another previously undiscovered good tool. Thanks Sam.
  2. I've had a couple of projects with grooved stucco look. For the horizontal grooves, I use the exterior molding polyline, which wraps the corners and trims at windows and doors, unlike the MR. I then use the MR vertically, which also trims and allows for the windows and door. Not a perfect solution, but works for me. My walls are block with stucco surface. The MR doesn't cut the stucco surface, however.
  3. I've noticed the sluggishness recently, as well. Nothing to document though.
  4. I had not observed that in the dbx. I have never needed to have different trims on each side. Or at least not in a number of years. I do remember using a molding line once to change the material for one side. Good to know this has been conquered. Thanks.
  5. Just tried the interior door on a blank plan. I could change the door slab colors each side, but couldn't change the trim colors. (OOB) interior panel door.
  6. That process has been available in some counties in Florida for several years now. I don't know all of the details. An Engineer has to pay a fee for an electronic seal and signature either per use or yearly. The counties that I have had contact with use Blue beam software. Sealed and signed construction documents become protected so that they cannot be abused and protect all parties. I could not get the Engineers interested, so I quit pushing the idea. I think they never felt secure enough regarding liability.
  7. I used to use the Jeld-wen library, but it is no longer available from the online content. It had a single sidelight option as I recall.
  8. I didn't try a PDF. (test) Again, chose file. STEP DETAILS.pdf
  9. The screenshots didn't open for me. I did not drag and drop this image, rather chose file.
  10. Wish I had ordered when this topic was current. Price is back to full now.
  11. It has a 24" roll feed. http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-designjet-t520-24-in-eprinter
  12. I've had the HP T120 for a couple of years now and like it very much. It replaced a 110R that I had for several years. The T520 would have been my first choice (faster and has stand), but I needed to save on the price at the time (on sale for $800). I'm not familiar with any other brands as a comparison. I love the wi-fi instead of hard wire connection.
  13. https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/719/one-and-a-half-story-roofs.html This is the hyperlink to the video. Looks like it may be video #719.
  14. I checked out one of the videos, but There is a new format to access them now, so I don't know the video number. It showed a single room structure. You can still build a story (half) over the existing garage and use the described technique. Actually, it demonstrated (3) ways to do it. I think I typed in "one and a half story" in the search in the online videos.
  15. There is a good demonstration in the Chief videos for a one and a half story or bonus room. Provided you have SSA.
  16. Michael did an excellent quick video about the align distribute tool that might be helpful.
  17. Good advice Joe, but I cannot find another schedule anywhere in the plan. Deleting the schedule does get rid of the double call-out, but then I get different (additional) door designations that do not match the door schedule. This plan layout has been revised many times and may be corrupt. I don't use the schedules normally. I'm working with a new Engineer that takes my drawings (2-D drafting) and inserts them into his formatted sheets that include door and window schedules. The door and window installers have done their own take-offs in the past. I thought I'd experiment with the CA schedules and came across this anomaly. The project has already been permitted, but I went back to explore a bit. I have not gone back to other projects to try. Thanks Joe.
  18. This may not be the same problem, but I have tried to get rid of the extra door call-out to no avail. This is a single story project that has been modified a lot of times, however. All doors have two call-out symbols.

  20. "Microsoft print to PDF" May have been added to windows 10. I used it for the first time a few days ago.
  21. So, does everybody occasionally use double doors for entry that are 5' wide or less? Once upon a time, it was common to use a double door (30"), but code, in most locations, follows the egress requirement you posted.
  22. I don't know what accessibility or ADA compliance codes would allow a door to swing across a clears space. But, with that said, I do more commercial work which may be more restrictive.
