  1. OMG my ChiefTalk Brothers and Sisters, the solution is so easy and fast it's not funny, can I get a witness!!! So that I never forget again here is how: (1) Delete Wall Framing -- go to Edit, Delete Objects, Framing/Check Wall Framing, and Delete (2) In plan view, select the wall or walls you want to show studs -- Right Click and select Build Framing for Selected Object(s). BUT this is not what I had before because I have deleted all the other wall framing in the process and the studs shown are not the special display layer, Framing, Wall Addition Studs, th
  2. Nope you got it wrong, want new addition walls to show studs but want preexisting walls to NOT show studs least I confuse the building officials as to what is being built and what is not. We didn't used to have to show this kind of detail to get a permit. I can remember back when I first started in 1985, one could literally create a plan with notebook paper and pencil while standing at the city's permit counter with one of the officials coaching.
  3. In response to all you good people: My problem with Auto Framing ON, makes sense to me and so I will continue to try to figure out how to fix the display once I get AF turned off, didn't realize AF could screw up layer things -- to myself, I say, Duh! The error message about the deck I have learned to ignore when I've got all the basic pre-existing structure as I need it, I turned it off for all my recent sessions. Here's the thing about CA for remodeling work, one has to just work around program obstacles to get what one wants. I dare say at least half of my time working a plan
  4. New plan with stud display problem. CT New Plan with Prob.plan
  5. OK, I think I removed any customer info so here you guys go, plans old. Next reply will have new plan due to 25MB limitation. BTW, Save As does not seem to be what created the problem. CT OLD Plan.plan
  6. I think so, if I can have a layer without studs showing in plan view on the preexisting walls at the same time as a layer with studs showing on addition walls as in the case in my screen shot.
  7. But where to I go, what do I do once I have grabbed them?
  8. I always think leaving the plan is TMI, plus don't want to subject myself to nit picking on unrelated issues or oneupmanship least there be some troublesome trolls on board. Plus privacy issues for myself, my business and my customers.
  9. Thank you for your effort, but it didn't make a difference since the wall definitions are identical because the new file was created by saving the old file under a different name. I did import them twice to be sure. I think the problem must arise out of the display options and some ability of the program to have walls display differently in plan view. I can change one of the old preexisting walls to a new addition wall and does not make a difference. I haven't stumbled onto the secret yet of course.
  10. A peculiar problem I visited once before months ago but I have forgotten how it was accomplished, it may well have been solved in a rush by calling support, I can't find a thread of mine here for it. Anyway, I had an addition plan where I could display the wall studs just for the addition in plan view (see attached screen shot). These studs are labeled "Framing, Wall Addition Studs" in the Default Set of the Layer Display Options. BUT when I saved this plan to another name so I could change it without messing up the first plan, the new plan view does not display "Framing, Wall Add
  11. I desire to have a Polyline Solid and Brick Steps display on both First Floor and Foundation as does the screen porch slab. Possible? Please see attached screen shots. Thank you in advance for you kind people who contribute your time and expertise to help solve my problems, I assure you your input is much appreciated and respected!
  12. I'm sorry to say to you that I gave up on portraying screen, SNestor, maybe X13 or X26 will address the need. Maybe we could organize a protest.
  13. Naw, you couldn't rip but you did cut right to the heart of my problem.
  14. OMG, Chopsaw, you did it, thanks so much!
  15. I can't find a designation choice called "not obscure" are you sure your view here is Vector?
