  1. Check to see if the object(s) you are trying to select are not locked.
  2. ....In this backsplash below, I used the snipping tool of the customers tile pick, saved it in the library as a material and mapped it on my material region. Its quick, and most important, the customer loved it. Even more important, I got the job! The ribbon is just another material region with a tile found in the library. Because of the random nature of your sample, it would be a bit challenging to have this fit together seamlessly without the use of third party software modifications as suggested. If you can get a large sample of this as DzinEye suggested, it just might work. Its quick to try this first before making your own custom tiles.
  3. Thanks for the tip, Michael, on the Plot Line option...Line work is noticeable crisper. I also do prefer the lighter pattern line work.
  4. Rob, I'm working on a kitchen design now, I placed my outlet on the island just as I would a wall with no issues (using X10).
  5. Who needs Watson when Mike is in the room! Thank you, thank you!
  6. Did that, no luck. There must be something like a preference or default setting that has to be checked... I did contact support and they were not able to reproduce what was demonstrated in video either.
  7. Training video 600 shows how to control these properties by layer sets. I was only able to control what was already controllable, and that was the color. Any way to also control the text height? I mimicked the video in a new file, but no luck. Any thoughts? I'm using X9 latest upgrade.
  8. Brilliant Michael, thank you for that!
  9. I'm saying for sure, but in some cases I know sometimes I had to force "rebuild framing" even though it might already be checked.
  10. yeah, unfortunately you missed that option by one version
  11. Good point! Check out this site...Pricy, powerful, but probably be around a while. I have an older gaming system and its feeling the demand that comes from the ever changing 3D design software. www.boxx.com They offer separate render "sidekicks" allowing uninterrupted work flow during a ray-trace.
  12. A lot of good advice...thanks everybody!
  13. I would like to know where it is I can find drafting standards/conventions. Been wing'n for a while, but would like to get on board. I would imagine, there are national standards and maybe by state, not sure. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks - Mike
  14. I did not want to move forward in a purchase without some feedback...and who better?! Thanks again everybody!
  15. Thanks Graham, I have time...and will spend it getting caught up on what constitutes the best parts that make up the whole. For me its a pricy endeavor, but like to get something that will be as adequate as can be for as long as it can be (within reason).
  16. Thanks everybody! Larry, the Quadro card has OpenGL (see attached). The card installed in system above (K620 in first post) runs about 160-180 bucks. Quadro K2200 and K4200 run about 450 - 850ish respectively. There are others (Quadro) that run in the thousands
  17. hmm...from what I hear, it is (Quadro) that is the preferred card for ACAD. Like many systems that support multiple GPUs, is it as simple as having both (GeForce for CA and Quadro for ACAD) and then the software can be configured to use the correct one. Any advice is appreciated.
