Blocking/Bridging disappearing after adding openings(doors, windows)

Recommended Posts

It might help us understand what is going on if you post some screen shots and preferably the plan file.

You referring to wall detail view or? Make sure layer is on in active layer display options.

That's the way it works.

When you build auto framing, any manual framing work gets deleted.

How would it work if your manual blocking remained while the rest of the wall framing changed - your blocking would not be correct anymore?

And you can only auto generate 1 row of blocking at mid wall height.

      When I use the manual joist tool on a deck project, the manually placed joists and blocking always end up as ceiling joists and ceiling blocking.  I just know I am missing something simple, but I can't for the life of me figure out what that is.

      It is easy enough to adjust the heights, but then they are on the wrong layers and in the wrong groups.  What am I doing wrong?

      Hi all anyone experiencing an issue when opening an older plan version.
      I have downloaded cheif x10 beta and checked a few things so all good whilst also keeping the x8 version.
      Also tried to keep everything separate , new jobs in x10 and old jobs in x8 etc.
      It just so happens that when trying to open older x8 file a window pops up requesting permission to upgrade x8 to newer version (x8).
      I have gone thru process of choosing no  on one occassion and then choosing yes on another but with no success.
      Attached screenshots describe situation.
      My problem now is that i have an x8 file that i want to open in x8 but cant.
      Any thoughts.
      Do i have to remove x10beta off system??
      Or is there some low level tweak.
      I could then just convert x8 file to x10 beta but don't want to as our computers are not upto spec for hardware requirements...
      Any advice appreciated.

      I am a beginner Chief Architect user hoping to purchase a X8 or X9 Premier License to start out with. 
      I need to keep my costs down as I am a single mother.  Appreciate any input.
      Thank you!

      Please refer to attached images.
      I'm pondering how to do something along these lines in CA using X8.
      Assuming the following. Beam pockets in walls for the larger beams. layers for roof
      over interior structure include usual OSB with paper and corr. metal, and ceiling to int. roof with gyp board.
      I've tried different techniques and can't quite get there.
      Do you do deck/porch room and create a custom roof structure? Manually place beams and create
      an "elevated deck" for the porch covering? I'm sure there are some advanced techniques I'm not
      aware of to accomplish this.
      Can someone take a look and suggest a workable solution?

      I am looking to purchase a third license for a new contract employee.  Just checking to see if there was anyone who wanted to sell their X8 or X9 license.  I would need to be able to add SSA to it.  This may not be the correct forum to pose this question, and if not, then the mods can delete this thread.
      Thank you,
