  1. I'm very happy with BenQ. I bought two and use them as dual monitors. https://www.benq.com/en-us/monitor/designer/pd2705q.html
  2. Until then, Do you have a compatible TV to Mirror the screen wireless using Wifi ? An Apple TV device will also do it. I use a 65" 4K Sony TV to mirror when I meet customers. In the upper right of the OS tool bar, you'll see an icon that looks like two sliders stack on top of each other. Click that and select Screen Mirroring. My TV shows up there and when I select it, the TV automatically switches to Screen Mirroring, select it again and the TV switches back.
  3. Do you use Time Machine? If so you can revert to Big Sur until a fix is issued.
  4. Many Mac sites and Forums including MacRumors have reported problems with Monterey and USB-C connections including Hubs. Hopefully Apple has a fix soon.
  5. Thanks Eric, Mark & Robert. I was able to create the new wall and save it to my Library. It looks good.
  6. Here's a PDF of the front elevation I'm trying to reproduce Brick Siding.pdf
  7. Are you receiving this error when the MacBook Pro is plugged in or when it is running on battery? The default is Automatic Graphics Switching = Checked, This means that when it runs on battery the computer using the onboard Intel UHD Graphics. When it is plugged in, it uses the Graphic Card, in my case, it's the AMD Radeon Pro 5500M Go to System Preferences > Battery > and also Power Adapter (Both) > Uncheck Automatic Graphics Switching. This will use the AMD graphics card at all times, but will decrease battery life.
  8. I fixed it, In X12, PDF Box Specification > Line Style > Drawing Group, I always set it to Front. In X13 I have to set it to Back.
  9. In X12 and all the previous versions, when I imported a PDF, I could see the CA walls, doors, windows, etc. In X13, the PDF background is White and I can not see the CA walls, etc. Any idea how to change this? X12 is on the first screen shot. X13 is second Ignore images 3 & 4
  10. My 2019 Mac Book Pro has dual video cards. Onboard Intel Graphics and AMD Radeon Pro The default is for the computer to use the Intel when running on battery, but use the AMD when plugged in. In System Preferences > Battery, there is an option to automatically switch video cards when using battery. This can be turned off.
  11. Go with Lift Master, top of the line in residential
  12. Yes for all projects. I haven't had a problem.
  13. CA uses Vimeo. In the Vimeo settings, CA has unchecked permission to download. They would simply have to check that box to permit it.
  14. Should be fairly easy 30" Base cabinet with a 48" Base next to it. 30" Base back to Back with the other 30" Select the Cabinets and make one double door, no drawer, no toe kick. Add molding to the bottom of the base cabinets All cabinets should have no countertop Add custom countertop Add cabinet legs Add cabinet molding under the open areas Add the stools
  15. You guy are correct about Apple. They are the ones I should be upset with. I'm looking at a PC, now. Here are the spec. What I I missing? Will this support VR? This is Dell Alienware Processor 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 11900KF (8-Core, 16MB Cache, 3.5GHz to 5.3GHz w/Thermal Velocity Boost Operating System = Windows 10 Pro English Video Card = NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 10GB GDDR6X Memory = 64GB Dual Channel DDR4 XMP at 3200MHz; up to 128GB (additional memory sold separately) Hard Drive = 2TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD (Boot) + 2TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s (Storage) Chassis Options = Lunar Light chassis with High-Performance CPU Liquid Cooling and 1000W Power Supply Wireless = Killer™ Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 (2x2) 802.11ax Wireless and Bluetooth FGA = no FGA Base =Alienware Aurora R12 Processor Branding =11th Gen Intel Core i9 non-vPro label $3,824.99 Show savings - $76.50 Item Total: $3,748.49 Includes a 1 Year Hardware Warranty with Onsite/In-Home Service After Remote Diagnosis
  16. I downloaded it. I'm extremely disappointed that X13 Real Time Ray Tracing is not supported on the Mac. I have a $4,400 Mac Pro and a $3,900 MacBook Pro. It's hard to justify buying a $4,000 PC just to Ray Trace.
  17. I registered for both, did you?
  18. Webinars on X13 - June 3 and June 10, https://www.chiefarchitect.com/events/#whats-new
  19. I'm an electrical contractor. I use CA for electrical design, meet with the owners and wire the houses according to the drawings. Jorgearaya gave you accurate advice. The "6 ft Rule" is used as a bare minimum for outlet placement. If I were designing a spec home or apartment, I'd use that rule. For custom homes, I place all the furniture and design the electrical and lighting based on furniture and cabinet layouts.
  20. We made Blueprints in college back in 1973. The method was obsolete even then. Invented in 1842, blueprints were truly Blue The drawing to be copied, drawn on translucent paper, is placed against paper sensitized with a mixture of ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide. The sensitized paper is then exposed to light. Where the areas of the sensitized paper are not obscured by the drawing, the light makes the two chemicals react to form blue. The exposed paper is then washed in water. This produces a negative image, with the drawing appearing in white against a dark blue background.
  21. I prefer having two different pitches like 12/12 for the roof and 8/12 for the ceiling plane or 8/12 & 6/12. That allows for plenty of insulation and venting.
  22. They told me having all your files on Apple iCloud was also a known cause.
