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?
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.
