  1. 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
  2. Thank you, Mark! It takes a village...to find things in the library.
  3. Hi, Has anyone seen this symbol? I could have sworn I had come across it once. Thank you, Barry
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. Hi All, I'm using all the default x11 templates, when I send floor 1 to layout it changes the previous fl 0 sent to layout to to fl 1? I then have two floor 1s on the layout? I called it in, Chief said they changed some code and that I should send it as "Saved Plan View" None, then make a copy of active layer set and name it? Huh? Are they saying that saved plan view set is not ready for prime time yet? They said it's dependent on how I change my templates, but I'm using Chief's templates? Anyone else experiencing this? Thank you, Barry
  13. It should work, just don't create new library items while both are open, it can crash your library...might even be wise to backup your library before hand. Cheers, Barry
  14. Somehow one ceiling got unchecked and I must have replicated it with match properties, the exponential downfall of match properties:) Note to self, don't work more than 12hrs a day.
