    Multi-Board Fascias

    I was a builder for over 45 yrs. and I see no problem with this fascia other than the drip edge should extend at a minimum of at least another one half inch beyond the top fascia board. I see no reason to criticize the detail. What little bit I see of the house it looks like it fits in win the "horizontal" theme.

    What does this ERROR Message mean?

    Dermot...……..….Thanks for the info. After looking at the "fix" I decided to contact my son-in-law. He's a computer techy. If I can make the problem occur again I'll send it into support. Have a great day.

    What does this ERROR Message mean?

    To be clear, I don't have or much understand "computer savvy". I was having a problem with CA X12 this morning and it keep closing the program. I finally discovered why and worked around the problem, but the last time CA closed unexpectedly and I went to reopen it I got this message. I have noticed that it is definitely working slower. What does this message mean and how can I get it unenabled? I've tried closing the program and reopening it, but I keet getting this same message before it would open. As I said earlier, I'm not very computer savvy so please bear with me. All advice will be much appreciated.

    Monitor question

    I've been using a 55" Hisense since January. I have had no issues and love it. I use that and a pair of Hp 2511 on the side.

    Placing custom door latch correctly?

    Mark...….…………..Thanks for the info. My wife has some "projects" for me at the moment. As soon as I can I'll play around with the info you gave. This should give me something to work with. Be safe and have a great day. I'll keep you all posted.

    Placing custom door latch correctly?

    Mark...….………….Not quite sure how to use the lever to work with. Those items aren't like a conventional symbol where you can "open" them up from the library and check their origins. Is it "origins" what you are referring too or am I in a different "ballpark"?

    Placing custom door latch correctly?

    Here I am again. I made a late 18th century plate latch for a door (way to much time on my hands ) and I'm trying to get it to place correctly on the door. On one side of the door I have the plate latch and on the other just a round brass knob. I call for the set back to be 2 3/4" which places the single brass knob correctly, but the plate latch is placed on the door as shown in the attachment. I've tried adjusting the "Origin Offset" for the plate latch symbol but the plate latch will not go any closer to the edge even if I tell it to be zero inches from the edge. The round knob on the other side will move to the edge, but not the latch plate. It seems like CA "reads" the edge of the symbol when next to the edge of the door. Then as it move in on the stile it starts to read the center of the symbol for placing. When CA places a lever latch it uses the correct area on the symbol for placing the lever latch. In doing that I'm thinking they must be using some kind of "Origin Offset" to accomplish this. If I need to I'll attach the latch and brass knob symbol along with the door in a wall plan file in a later thread. Any ideas?

    Door symbol stretch plane placement?

    It's stretching like it should on my end now and I didn't do anything other than rebooting the program. Thanks to all for taking the time and advice. Be safe and have a great day.

    Door symbol stretch plane placement?

    I made a 32"x80' door symbol and placed the "X" and "Z" stretch planes shown in red in the attachment. When I make the symbol wider it stretches in the panels where I want it to (door on right in attachment). When I make the door taller it stretches all the panels and rails uniformly seemingly to not use my "Z" placed planes. Where should I position the horizonal stretch planes so just the larger panels stretch?

    Casing recessed to Main Layer?

    Rene................I've been playing around with this "problem", which was kind of on the same thoughts as Eric's solution. I'll try to explain it to you. I think this is a partial work around in trying to get CA to correctly display what I'm showing in the cad detail I'm showing in my previous thread. I still have work to do. 1. I made a wall that had 1 3/4" studs (1/2 the thickness a 3 1/2" wall) and put plasterboard and plaster on just the exterior side. On the interior side of the Main Layer I set the line weight to zero. I then installed a door recessed to the main layer, Separate Trim and Materials on Each side Options dbx. checked and Interior casing turned off. 2. I drew a line parallel to the wall and copied reflect about. 3. I then change the copied wall hinged door to a doorway and labeled that wall as a "furred wall. 4. I brought the two walls together. 5. I added the framing just to show, what I think is the only downfall in this work around, which is 2 studs being placed at each location side by side because of the half thickness wall. I think this "might" be a better work around than Eric's suggestion. As with any (or most) work arounds it can be a PITA especially if there are a lot of doors/doorways in a project. It, I think, would be much easier if CA would just give us an option to recess the casing on either/or or both sides of a wall.--------------Any thoughts?

    Casing recessed to Main Layer?

    Rene............…......…. Can you "show" me how this works? I played with changing the jamb to 3 1/2" but the casing does not come into the studs like I want them to. "Inset box" just offsets the jamb location while the casings remain on the outside of the plaster. Am I missing some other setting? The cad detail in the attachment shows how I accomplish the framing/trim for this particular trim detail. As you can see I'm showing rabbeted jambs also.------------another issue.
