  1. Diane,

    If you start with a standard rail, you can adjust the newel post height. In my example, I started with the long railing as a standard rail and the two side rails as post to beam. I then broke the long railing at the first post and reversed the short railing section to make it different than the longer section. Changed the short section to post to beam. No newels added manually. you will need to add the beam manually.

  2. I find Room Planner very lacking to do existing. I sent in a list of things needed when it first came out. Nothing has improved. 


    One thing it needs is a way to tell the difference from a computer generated dimension and a measured dimension. Redstick Cad Pro highlights the manual imputed dimension as Bold and locks it. Also different sized walls don't line up properly. If I remember correctly, they line up to centers. 


    We do need a better solution for doing as-builts. I'm still looking.

  3. Johnny,


    I'm looking for something portable to do as-builts. Presently, I use a Tablet with a program called Redstick Pro. 


    Redstick Pro work's great with a stylus. The problem is, I need to draw it over again in CA. Looking for something I can input directly into CA. Don't want to use a mouse in the field.

  4. I was looking at the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 & Microsoft Surface Book.


    Can the Stylus be used in X9? Will it draw Walls, dimensions and input data.


    In the What's New for X9 Pdf, it talks about Touch Screen Gestures. In the What's new video it talks about Zooming & Panning and Other Things. Don't know what "Other Things" refers to.


    Do I still need to use a mouse with the above computers?

  5. Is there a way to open the Plan File and Layout file at the same time?


    My present process:

    Open Chief Architect.

    On the Welcome screen, under recent files, select and open the Plan File.

    Once the Plan File is open, click File on the top menu.

    In the list at bottom, find and select the Layout File.


    It would be nice to have an option in the Welcome screen to open the linked Layout file when a Plan File is selected.
