I'd like to change the default fill pattern for my footings. Chief has the default as concrete (which is fine) but I want to have the default footing fill background be grey instead of white and the concrete pattern lines in black. We can of course change the default fill patterns for concrete walls/foundations, slabs, etc. easily but I don't see any option for footings or anyway to change the default concrete fill. Is this possible? (FYI am using x12). The Chief "Help" guide just says that footings default fill is concrete but does not indicate whether it can be changed or how it can be changed.
I'm new to chief. I'm using X-8.
How do you show a stucco pattern on the exterior walls in elevation views? When I turn off the color
in elevation view the walls have no fill pattern. I have been using AutoCAD since 1993. In AutoCAD
I would assign a hatch (fill) pattern of random dots that represents stucco.
Is there a way to show a stucco pattern of random dots in elevation view after I turn off the color?

I'm working on my first plan with chief. On the rear of the house there is a bay window. This bay window is a part of
a breakfast nook. The breakfast nook has a vaulted ceiling. When viewing the rear exterior elevation (North) I get
extra horizontal lines that should not show. These lines are on the 45 degree walls of the bay. They are at the 8'
plate height. This wall is at the gable end. Also the corners of the bay window walls are thicker that the other corner
I have attached the plan. If someone could let me know how to remove the horizontal lines at the bay window and
why the walls are showing thicker on the 45 degree walls.
