  1. Yes, that's exactly the look I'm after. Thanks.
  2. I'll look into all this. Thanks Michael.
  3. Hi, I'm having trouble graying out the walls underlying my roof framing drawing. I can go to the display options and gray out the windows, doors, etc., by selecting the color, but attempting to gray out "walls normal", which is what the layer is for the walls, doesn't seem to have the same effect. The wall assembly does have several colors involved which leads me to believe the color can't be changed from where I'm attempting to do it. There is only one color represented in the layer set. Anyone have any ideas? X10. Thanks.
  4. I found a saved version from before the problem that works. I'm guessing the problem must have something to do with a weird roof thing that I was attempting to do. It made the plan too big for the page, even though it wasn't showing. I could tell something was up when I was drawing that thing. Don't know why it affected printing going forward though. Thanks for taking a look at it everyone.
  5. Yes, I think you're correct in that my page setup is wrong. I'm just unsure how to fix it. I don't seem to have a lot in the way of options as I've clicked on everything that will allow and looked into it. Any idea how to get back to just clicking on print and having the view I'm looking at on the screen pop up in the window?
  6. The send to layout thing didn't really work all that well. It printed in miniature size. I wish there were some way to just reset to where it was yesterday but I have no idea what changed.
  7. I'll try sending to layout. Thanks for the tip.
  8. Here's what it looks like in print preview.
  9. The drawing behind used to show up on the page that is now blank. I'm noticing it says one of one pages but at some point it told me it was the first of over 1800 pages. It's a mystery to me.
  10. I'm not exactly sure how to reply here, but I'll attach a screen shot of what comes up. If there is something else it would be useful for you to see, please let me know. Thanks.
  11. Hi, I'm having trouble getting a page printed off the plan view. When I send the page to the printer it takes forever to load and then says 1 of 1800 pages. What shows up is a blank page to be printed but I'm guessing it's a corner of the page divided into 1800 pieces. I tried switching to pdf., same blank page in the preview box. I tried resetting chief in the preference dialog but that didn't work. I'm not sure what to do next. Any ideas? I could simply click on print and the page printed fine at 95% up until a few hours ago. I was trying to get it to fill the page better and did something wrong, although I'm not sure what. Thanks, Tom

    Yes, we are not allowed to wet set foundation bolts or holdowns in the silicon valley area or any of northern CA that I'm aware of.

    Wet set means sticking the holdowns in position as you pour. We used to do this out on Maui. In CA holdowns have to be secured in place prior to pouring. Foundation bolts as well. Much better practice.

    No worries. I know Richard Morrison does his own calculations and gets on here from time to time so perhaps he'd know. Thanks anyway.
  15. I believe Laticrete has a system whereby you can use a fluid applied membrane over concrete or block, apply a scratch coat of their proprietary material and adhere lightweight veneers directly to that. No lathing required which means no penetrating the membrane. What I'm wondering is whether or not anyone has come across examples of lightweight veneers that aren't designed to look like stone. I can't seem to find any examples of this sort of thing by searching the internet but maybe someone on here would know about more contemporary variations on veneer products. Thanks, Tom
