    Perfect. A tutorial will be helpful!

    Thanks Mick. No. I'm not familiar with Paint. I don't think I ever used it. I'll try to experiment with the suggestions you forwarded. -DG

    Staggered Lap Siding/Pattern to Texture?

    Thanks all. What basic image editor program would you recommend? I think the only one I have is Paint but it's probably 10 years old.
  4. I reviewed this older posting: http://www.chieftalk.com/showthread.php?65927-varying-lap-siding-reveal and was able to successfully download the pattern created. What I don't understand is how one transfers that pattern to the texture file for 3D viewing? I'm hoping it's easier to do this now as the posting dates back to 2014? Here's the elevation view with the intended siding pattern: Now to just get the material to follow.

    Loss of Patterns in X12?

    Just to reiterate: The pattern libraries are the only libraries that seem to be missing files. ALL the other libraries have migrated correctly and are accessible as normal. It's only when I choose to select a pattern through it's DBX for a particular item (such as flooring or roofing) do I experience the problem. I have 're-migrated' the files several times through the new X12 feature to no avail. I also have opened plans with X11 and a particular pattern I'm searching for and tried the 'add to library' option. Still, not accessible even after resetting.

    I should add that all libraries are accessible as normal in every other situation.

    Loss of Patterns in X12?

    It was a pattern from the Chief library and not one of my own. It does not appear my user library nor anything other than the Chief core library is accessible when choosing a patter in the DBX. This capture shows what I see when I try to choose a pattern. Only the core library has an arrow next to it.

    This is a roof pattern that I've used for years and cannot find in the X12.... There are also several others but don't have time to forward right now.

    This is what I'm seeing.

    Loss of Patterns in X12?

    In the library when selecting a pattern. The core library is the only one made available when choosing. The bonus, manufacturer and user libraries are not accessible. And when I open the core library there are fewer patterns available than before.

    Loss of Patterns in X12?

    Did I import/migrate something incorrectly or did numerous patterns (shingles, wood, stone, tile, etc.) disappear in X12? It seems like I only have about a quarter of what I used to have in X11. I realize there is the new feature that allows for syncing patterns and textures but I miss some of my standard favorites and don't know why they didn't 'carry over'. Are we supposed to search for and import these individually? I don't see anything in the archives addressing this.

    Actually, I thought I had done just that Joe. Sometimes my changes and layer assignments don't seem to 'lock'. I'm sure it's something I'm doing incorrectly, however with what seems like sporadic success, frustration levels rise quickly.
