    rotate layout view

    I don't do a lot of printing. For this project, the client requested something he could print at home and I was just testing how big the text would look for him when printing on 8 1/2x11 and noticed this happening.

    Thank you for this. I will check into it more.

    rotate layout view

    If I convert the elevation to a CAD detail, and want to make them look the same as my other 2 drawings in the drawing set, I would have to manually select all of the pattern lines and convert them to a lighter gray color. That will take a lot of time. I am good with it the way it is now.

    rotate layout view

    Sorry for the confusion. Not using a pdf in the layout itself. I am printing TO a pdf from layout, and then printing that pdf to my printer. Maybe it is a printer setting or something. This has never happened before.

    Nope, no fill in the layout box.

    rotate layout view

    Here is the final PDF drawing set. It shows a little more of why I was trying to rotate the 2 elevations on page 3. Seamed like they would fit the page better if I rotate them. I did convert the original elevations to a CAD detail but at the expense of not having control over the pattern line defaults. I like to show my materials in a lighter shade of gray (see page 2), and also at the expense of if a change is made, I will have to convert it again to have it update.

    Appears that way. Unless I am totally missing something. You would think this would be a standard feature just like how you can rotate other things.

    rotate layout view

    It's a problem because the black covers up the text notes on the elevations and part of the cross sections notes, uses excess black ink for no reason, and is visually unatractive. Just seams to be doing it on the election layout boxes and not the layout box for the cross section.

    I am also getting this when I am printing. The black fill behind the elevation. It does not show on the pdf that I export from Chief. IMG_8745.HEIC Shultz Shed-Final Plan Set 4-13-20.pdf

    rotate layout view

    Does anyone know how to rotate a layout view? Seams like it should be fairly simple like clicking on the view and rotating using the handle. There are no handles that show up. Is there another way. Also right clicked on transform/replicate object, but the option for rotate is grayed out and not available. Using a sheet in portrait mode, and would like to rotate elevations 90 degrees to better fit on the taller sheet size.

    X12 ray tracing change?

    Here are some of the other renderings I did last year using X11.

    X12 ray tracing change?

    Here is the X11 plan that the original renderings came from about 1 year ago. Camera 2 is specific camera I was showing previously. Bercher-Wigand-Eyck-Remodel_E_2-11-19.plan

    X12 ray tracing change?

    Hi Michael, hope things are well with you. I do not have a roof or foundation on this model. I have been working on a current project and got to the point where I was ready for an interior rendering. This is the first time doing an interior rendering since upgrading to X12. I set some interior general lights in the room like usual and rendered. Very poor quality lighting and grainy image. I then opened a project I did about a year ago in X11 just to compare. I opened it in X12 and changed nothing. Did a rendering and still get poor quality lighting and grainy image. I've also played with bumping up the lumens like 3 times as much with very little improvement. I seam to have no control over the general lighting.

    X12 ray tracing change?

    Here is a render setting the camera lighting to default light set. No change. Also getting that weird reflection thing at the tops of the cabinets on all of these.
