Room dimension labels not rounding consistantly

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am working on townhomes that are exactly the same on both sides. I need the room dimension labels to be the same on my "advertising" plans or people will get confused and wonder why they are different. The actual dimensions are exactly the same, but I don't want to show people all the dimension lines for advertising. As you can see in the attached, both living rooms are actually 13' 10-1/2" X 16' 9-1/2". The room labels are rounding to 16'8" on one side and 16'-9" on the other side. I don't care if it rounds up or down, but I do need it to be the same on both sides. Does anybody know how to fix this? I am working in X5.

 

Thanks!

That is the reason I do not use that tool, if you want them the same, then manually make them the same.

The plan you have attached is empty.  A zip file that's only 164 bytes can't have anything in it.  My guess is that you had the plan open when you tried to zip it. 

 

You may want to try reposting the plan to get a better answer then a random guess.

 

There is a possibility that your rooms are not really the same size.

 

There is also a possibility that this is something that works better in X8 then it does in X5.

 

There is also a possibility that this is something that the program needs to handle better.

 

No one is going to know for sure unless you post the plan.

Thanks for the replies. Still crossing my fingers that this is fixable so I don't have to remember to change the labels manually every time I make a change. I forsee myself missing a lot of corrections, but I suppose I would get used to it after a while. I have attached a better zip file. Thanks!

This works better in X8.  The room dimensions are both rounding the same now.  You might want to consider upgrading.

Howdy Lee,

 

No problem here in X8 when changing dimension defaults to 1" rounding (Primary Format/Accuracy/Smallest Fraction).

      In my plan, in one room there is a room label without any room dimension. Is there a way to find out where is it and why it is generating without any room dimension? (screen shot attached)

      In our practice, we do a lot of duplex work (attached housing). Is there a way to set up total floor living area calculations for two separate dwellings when they're attached?

      I am using Chief Architect Premier X9
       
      My defaults seemed to have changed so that when I select a window - it is now showing temporary dimensions of the window casing / center of window / trim. (see attached screen shots)
      How do I change this to only show the window opening to wall stud? 
       
      thanks in advanced!

      When I open a plan in X12 that was created in an earlier version of CA, the layer "ceiling break lines" does not appear.
      I believe that layer was not available in versions prior to X12. Which was always an annoyance to me because they couldn't be turned off.
      I assumed that all the functionality of the latest version would be available in the plan once it was saved in that version?
      Am I wrong on that?
       
      The other thing that i've noticed is that "new" Room Labels that are in the drop down list as supplied with X12 also do not appear in plan saved in X12 that was created in an earlier version?

      Hi,
           I am trying to place columns and grid line with dimensions.
      I have to create on column circles and columns lines , then the dimensions will not place correctly to center usining manunel dimensinos (its leaves 12in on each side of column center lines.
      Chief Architect needs to be more friendly and have more commercial symbols and column lines to dimensions to them. They do have a commercial templet, but it does not have any of those.
      Plus they need commercial window details etc. I am donating this for a non-profit to design a rendering and another area added on the back of this building.I am donating a rendering of exterior to help them fund raise $300.000.00 (by December) to buy the exist. building and remodel adding finishes to look better and another 2,000 s.f. to it.
       
      Can anyone help me on working out the Grid center lines and will measuring correctly? turn on background and existing bldg. is under neath. 
       
      Thanks,
