    finding embedded files

    A few weeks ago I posted about a large file size and how to see a list of the embedded files. As suggested I backed up the entire plan to a folder and was able to see the list. I have tried to locate the "Brick" and "Siding" files in the plan and can't. Is there a way to find where in a plan a particular texture or symbol is used?

    Embedded files

    A client recently sent his plan drawn in X10 and its a 140 MB file and my computer struggles with it. Is there a way to see a list of the embedded files so I can perhaps see what's pushing up the plan file size?

    custom stringer

    See attached image of stairs. I am going to have 3" thick treads so they can span the 42" wide steps. How can I delete the center stringer? Also how can I edit the side stringer size? Would like to change it to a 4" thick piece of wood.
  6. If I import a PDF site plan or floor plan to trace over into my plan, then turn off imported file layer display when done, then go to print the layout to PDF I get a 20 Mb file which is awkward to email. If I delete the PDF site plan from the plan file and then print the layout I get a 2 Mb file. I prefer not to have to delete the imported file, I may need to go back to it. Am I missing something, is there a solution to this issue? I have also had this issue when I want to keep the imported file displayed during layout printing.

    Glass Shower wall not transparent

    attached is a shot of the page with the transparent shower glass in technical illustration in X8. You're right the opaque setting only works on windows, just tried in case it might work. Line drawing works much better for me in X10 see 2nd attachment, needs a little adjusting.
  8. I have recently upgraded from X8 to X10. Now when I open an existing plan the glass shower walls are not transparent in technical illustration. I did check to make sure the box for transparent glass was not checked in the "technique options". Any suggestions where to look?

    missing window swing on elevation

    Thank you for both pieces of advice. I did that and saw that the indicators were there just not turned on. Not sure how the opening indicator layer got turned off.
  10. On one plan I am working on the window swing for casement and awning windows does not show on the elevations, and I can't figure out why not. Any ideas??? They show on all the other plans I am doing.

    Perspective alignement

    GlennW, thanks for the reply. "Tilt Angle" that was what I was looking for.

    Perspective alignement

    When using the orbit tool to adjust the angle of view for a perspective view I like to keep the vertical walls plumb and avoid angled verticals. Sometimes it is a little tedious to get the verticals perfectly straight. Is there a hot key I can press while orbiting that would force the vertical walls to be plumb? Thanks in advance for your help.
