  1. Line drawing rendering style is so fast now! It used to take forever.
  2. FYI - the transfer fee depends on the license. If you have the first 4 digits of the license key, you can ask CA directly for accurate info. Barb
  3. yes. pm me if you're interested. This is a 2nd seat license. Barb
  4. Second seat X10 for sale - checking with Chief sales now about transfer fee. Stay tuned and get a jump on an upgrade to X11! Barb
  5. Nvision...If it doesn't/didn't work out with Wereley, send me a message. Barb
  6. I tried a clean install and it's still not finding the files. Interesting that it's not finding Chiefs own "" and the location is in the default setting. I'll check with tech support as soon as I get a chance. Thanks for the help! Barb
  7. Hi Perry The funny thing is, everything was installed in the default locations and was fine prior to some kind of "clean up" (I think) happened. I'm only missing the new stuff from X10. The old textures as well as bonus stuff is all there.
  8. Hi all Somewhere along the line recently I lost my Chief X10 texture files. Any ideas on how to retrieve them? Thanks Barb
  9. Just don't try to mull those together if you have lintels. Try it and see what happens.
  10. Thanks for looking guys! I’ll be upgrading to X10 for new projects, but don’t want to switch in the middle. Enjoy the weekend, we got another 8” snow overnight. Getting deep out there! Off to shovel. Barb
  11. I get the same result. I was mostly concerned with the missing wall framing on the right. If you have the section view and the floor plan windows tiled on your screen (so you can see both views at the same time), the framing disappears as soon as you break the section line, you don't even have to drag it. Happy Friday.
  12. Hi Glenn Sorry, I forgot to save the camera. it's saved in this plan with the break line shown. If you moved the section line up and down you should see how the framing disappears. Barb section cut.plan
  13. Here is a plan file and a pdf that shows the condition after cutting the section. You can see that the wall framing on the right side is missing in the section cut, but shows in the floor plan and a wall framing detail. Thanks for looking. Barb section cut.pdf section cut.plan
  14. I was really excited to discover that I could break a section camera to create a jogged section cut. HOWEVER, as soon as I put a line break in the section line, the wall framing (most of it) disappears. Tried it on a clean floor plan just to be sure it wasn't plan specific. When I move the break back to the original location, voila! the framing is back. I know X10 will be out soon, but anyone else have this issue in X9? Thanks Barb
  15. I just installed the old driver and everything seems back to "normal". Thanks Mick! Barb
  16. Laptop specs attached Nvidia GTX 960M in addition to the Intel HD Graphics 530 All was working fine until Tuesday afternoon.
  17. Thanks Mick. Downloading it now. Keep your fingers crossed!
  18. EEK! I'm have this problem on my laptop also. I updated all my drivers, mouse, Nvidia etc. but still not working. I get the disappearing cursor in 3d as others described, and the other thing that's not working is cabinets. In the dbx, it won't let me select "fill" or "linestyle". All else is fine as far as I know. My desktop is fine. Any other suggestions? Barb ps. I wasn't able to roll back my video driver to the May release because they didn't offer that option. Earliest I could get was July.
  19. or, select each roof plane and change the material there.
  20. Thanks Michael, but I've done that. Not sure what I'm doing wrong... Edit: I figured it out. I needed to rebuild the trusses. BTW - thanks for the tip on how to make the trusses behave from the beginning. Barb
  21. I would also like to see the truss tails generate a square cut. No matter how I have the roof set, trusses will only generate a plumb cut. Am I missing something?
  22. I deal with energy heels on a regular basis here, sometimes with a 2x10 top chord. It's frustrating to have the truss not build the engery heel correctly. " Not sure Why CA insists on building that small wall between E.H. Trusses either... (Blue) 2x10 vertically Blocking perhaps ...or are some areas actually made to do this? " I do what Jared said. Use a wall type that has no material for the framing.
  23. I would love to see the recording! Sorry I missed the live version. Thanks guys for doing this. Your constant help here is greatly appreciated. Barb
