    Hi This is more of an observation than a question. The export to ResCheck is great idea but not unlike most new features it'll take a version or two to get it right IMO From what I can see it would be much more beneficial If the export went to AreaCalc (ResCheck sister program). There's a lot to straighten out after the export and it would be much easier having all the envelop items separated as in AreaCalc then send it to ResCheck from there. I'd be interested if anyone is using this feature with any consistency... TIA Oh! and I stumbled on the "Make Living Area Polyline" today,,,,, nice one Chief guys! :-)
  7. Oh Yaaah! Thanks Dermot. Worked like a charm. and thanks for the try Col.
  8. Stick build it... make up a thin white wall, set angle, width, height (rm ht), window dims and all that stuff then select one wall and set to no room def.. then lower the windows to fit your white framed walls. on that exterior wall place a fixed glass to show the interior. old school
  9. Help! Hi Folks Can't get the project browser to show up. By way of the view menu or the tool button. I have tried it with Side Window Drag Dock checked and unchecked. Also tried other than my custom tool bar configs (out of the box) with no luck. I sure hope this is operator error!!

Hi Dave don't normally have a problem with ram on this machine,,, 12 gigs From layout I went to select printer and found an entry in the printer list "Save as PDF" , never notice it before and don't know where it came from, dah, anyway it created the pdf almost instantly unlike the other pdf printers I tried that bogged down,,,who knew! "-) sending the pdf to the 500 works I just leave out the layout page with the pdf's on it and print that page by it's self.... phew thanks for the reply Perry, yes I switched to that earlier with some success,,,,, but o so sloooow tnks
  11. Hi End of the day trying to finish a plan up and never fails,,,,,, printing problem's I drag and dropped a couple of PDF eng. reports onto the last layout page of the plan,,,, causing all sorts of memory problems with my HP500 hp /gl2 card. Having the same problem printing to every PDF printer on this machine I guess my question is, any way to decrease the size of those files, I tried turning them into jpegs thinking it might help but no go... great feature,,,, if it works this is in X6, last one I had kicking around b 4 I moved up to X7 TIA
  12. Joe Wo! Never expected that, just starting to us x7 from 6,,,, Chief certainly has come a long way, Thanks Johnny,,,, if there is I couldn't find it,,,,
