  1. Thanks Graeme! I think I have searched all of them. Hard to keep up with it all--I find the library organization and search is the weakest part of Chief. There seems to be everything but a clean simple modern handle. It takes less time to build a house than search through all the disparate catalogs.
  2. Hi all, I don't see a simple handle like this in the library: 7" to 9" vertical and horizontal. Is there one out there or is this something that would be easier to make. Thank you, zowie
  3. Hi All, I've reset all my options to stock: stock templates, stock toolbars, but the tool bar still scrambles a few times a week. Anyone else have this issue. I'm thinking of reloading the program. I'm not sure if it occurs when toolbars are locked. I'll have to reset and lock it, sometimes I unlock it to add something. But I've never locked it in the past and it hasn't bee an issue. I've been using chief for about 15yrs, I do about 50 projects a year, never had this issue before. Thank you, Barry
  4. Thank you, Mark! It takes a village...to find things in the library.
  5. Hi, Has anyone seen this symbol? I could have sworn I had come across it once. Thank you, Barry
  6. Hi, I run a 2080 gpu and a pretty robust processor. My system monitor never really shows system memory past 50%. but I was wondering if anyone has felt a difference when they've increased memory from 16 to 32 megs? Thank you, Barry
  7. HI All I know we can create schedules for exterior and interior doors and control schedules by room, but what would be super helpful for filling out energy code is being able to check on or off, "include in standard area calc" or not. This way the standard area total in the window and door schedule only includes windows and door checked, yes, include this. Would there be a macro for this? Thank you, Barry
  8. Hi Eric, Essentially wall defs made in chief, when they're exported from chief I think they have this format so they can be re-imported. If you look at File, Import, Wall Definitions, it has (DAT) after it. Thanks, Barry
  9. Hi all, I've been rebuilding templates and layouts and have been meaning to add more wall definitions, but thought I'd check to see if anyone has shared a robust set as DAT format? Anyone know of any out there? Thank you, Barry
  10. Hi All, Anyone else feeling this? I crashed while working with cabinets. All x11 Templates, not sure what's going on, also hard to replicate, just started noticing after last update. Thank you, Barry
  11. Hi all, Anyone else notice a lot of crashing when dealing with cad details? I haven't had this many crashes in several years. Clean load, stock templates. Very few alterations. Thank you, Barry
  12. Saved Plan View Specification dialog "Use Any Floor" seems to allow the view separation to layout, works for now. Training wheels until I understand the advantage of separating floors in Saved Floor Plan Views.
  13. Just searched and found the thread. I'll have to wrap my head around it tighter than I thought. Always used anno sets, seems like an extra step is needed to define floors. Thanks guys!
