Elevations fuzzy in layout

Recommended Posts

eSince updating to V8, when I send a section or elevation to layout, it is very fuzzy and unreadable. Sometimes it works fine but most of the time it doesn't. Any suggestions?

Thanks

If you are sending as live view this is typical as a way to keep program going faster. They will print fine though. If you would like it to look crisp the send in plot lines, however you will need to update views manually.

To take advantage of the other new features of X8 you can always open the layout box and switch it back or do that just before printing.

It is intended to let the program work faster.

      I'm attempting to relocate a polyline solid in the "z" direction.  I drew the polyline solid for an elevation on the high elevation of a shed roof and it located on the low elevation.  Is there a way it can relocated to the high endOverview - 2.20.21.plan

      Has anyone had their elevations become corrupted lately? The only fix for me is to open up the elevation and send to layout on some junk page I'm not going to print. This restores the elevation on the elevations page I intend to print. I'm an advanced user and have tried all the visual styles, plot lines, etc.. I feel like this is a hardware issue, driver issue, or software bug.

      Looking for design partner for upcoming projects. My previous designer used Chief and he is too busy to take on additional work. Ideally looking for someone who may have building experience in addition to being a designer. Looking for someone who can deliver preliminary floor plans and elevations to facilitate proof of concept, someone who can design to specific standards for ARC review and submission standards. The designer will need to understand page naming conventions and all related requirements for the city of Bend Oregon for streamlined permit submission. Structural drafting and coordination with structural engineers.

      Does anyone know how to change the decimal under the story pole marker lines? I've attached a picture, it's the numbers circled in orange. I would like to get rid of them completely as some of my story pole markers are close together and this takes up extra space.
       
      Thank you in advance!!
