  1. You have a non default ceiling structure 16" and non default ceiling finish 18" on the first floor. Are those correct? They 12" and 11-3/4" in the default.
  2. Chief Architect plans and layouts often contain many references to other external files so it's necessary to copy all the associated files to a new location when a plan or layout is moved. A copy of your plan along with all of your textures and materials can be quickly and easily created by using the Backup Entire Plan/Project tool. @lbutteryYes Plans are not backward compatible! Very important Point ! You can use the Backup Entire Plan Tool to make a copy the plan and all of the associated files in X10. If you have a complete x10 back up saved you will have a version that you
  3. You could also make a full backup copy of your plan and keep it as an x10 plan and upgrade the other to which ever version x12 or x13 you are trying out.
  4. Best if you post the plan for best responses but you might use a pony wall concrete on bottom framed with siding above
  5. Turn on the Fixtures and Moldings layes in 3d
  6. Watch This Video should help you.
  7. If understand correctly what you are doing is setting up your "pony wall wall assemblies" in your library to have a specific height for the lower section (bottom) of the pony wall? When you change ceiling height the top part of the pony wall assembly adjusts to the changed ceiling height. Once that lower wall height is set it does not change.
  8. I'm not sure how you're doing this because the only way I know how to set the wall height requires a room to be drawn and I believe the room height is pulled from the Default Settings for Floors and Rooms, Floor levels tab. You can also change wall height in the Room DBX Structure tab. You can draw a room with any one wall type and change the walls to 4 different types and the height of your walls will not change
  9. You can select the wall you want to change, open the dbx and select the pony wall type you want and that will also make the change!
  10. Yes the wall types are in the library now in X12 but you can just as easily choose your wall type and make copies, changes, define new types in the Wall tool DBX with out issues ! All your wall types should and could be in that location! I do not think one way is any better than the other.
  11. Steve, I have had and used this program since release 4.0 and have never used the Library to select my wall type when drawing a plan. I always have used the wall tool and it's walls specification dbx to select and define the wall type. I think using the library is messing you up.
  12. Steve, I may be wrong but I do not believe the walls in your library are the default walls.
  13. Here is a detail that may work for you. See the attached pdf document for an Insulation resource. The project is in Climate zone 9 and requirements will depend on if you are doing a vented or non vented attic. 102219_BI_BID_285_CA_Title24_MultiFamily.pdf
  14. Not sure exactly what you are after? What about just displaying the RO on the window Schedule?
