  2. As a builder , designer , contractor , woodworker , I would say chief wins !!! Unfortunately it is all about the marketing end !!! The only real advantage I see to 20/20 is how 20/20 can do there take off & set the order , however putting in a little extra time , the material list can be exported to accomplish the same .
  3. I believe you should be able to block that info & send it to your library
  4. Please help , When I click on a wall elevation marker in plan view & that view comes up fine ! When I send that view to the layout page the view is almost unreadable I have tried numerous ways in all different sets , camera view , all on set , kitchen & bath & can not figure out where this setting can be I manage to send one view to the layout page that was fine , just dont remember how I did it !! I am using x 10 THANK YOU & MERRY CHRISTMAS

  6. I am using x 10 & I was wondering if there is a way to show a reflective ceiling plan that I can turn off & on . How would i go about adding that to the main plan ??
  7. I have had different issues with how I use the program !!!! Biggest tip I have heard of is to THINK LIKE THE PROGRAM !!!! This meaning the program operates in a clockwise formation follow that pointer in that formation !! Also zooming in & out has helped me
  9. When I use the elevation camera for cabinets is there a way to change the grey line to a red line so I can see where I want the cabinet to snap to ? The grey line is hard to see with the black lines on the cabinets . If there is a way which default setting would i go to I am using x 10
  10. First of all the program that you choose should be based on a couple issues , 1 : Cost is a big thing , all the versions have different costs related to each program . 2 ; Do you intend to use it many more times ? or just for one project ? Home pro is a excellent program for average people ! Chief Premier & Chief interiors are very professional & advanced with multiple functions . Being computer savy is a very important issue with most of the advanced programs . Try the Home pro version as a free download & see what YOU THINK
  11. I have just starting using a laptop & I cannot find the grey bar that runs vertically to the right of the screen any ideas how I can get that back , I usually zoom in and scroll to the areas I have to work on .Please help

  18. I called up a diffrent sheet size in a layout when setting up some defaults & instead of going to the plan window i had a senior moment & just started plotting stuff in the layout file .If it was in a plan file i wouldnt have this issue I can redo the drawing but it would be easier having page 1 & 2 in x10 Worst part is i dont use chief everyday How are you doing eric i hope you & yours are okay in this crazy world !!
  19. I stared a drawing & made a big mistake !! I started drawing it on page zero . All the info on page zero i do not want on page one , is there anyway I can fix this This was a sub division plan i had all the lots , roads , tax map #s , owner name , and address #s on page zero . I want to have another page / page 1 without the lots , tax map , and address # s & just the roads .
