Not the way to do it, try to do all dimensioning in the plan then send to the layout. Not exactly sure what you want though.

It would be good to go through the basic tutorials that Chief has. This question is almost at the level of "how do I draw a wall?" and is asking more for tutoring than help with a problem you can't solve. This forum can be very helpful, but people expect that you've taken the time to learn the basics on your own.

Just send it to layout or export as an DWG then import into chief and then sent to layout

      I usually print layouts on 24"x 36" paper so that is what my layout template is set up to do. A client wants to print on 11"x 17". When I change the size of the drawing sheet, it changes the paper size without adjusting the title boxes, notes, etc. Is there a way to resize the entire layout without creating a new layout template for 11" x 17" paper?

      The architect I am moonlighting for wants the title sheet to be rotated 90° to the rest of the sheets. I am not sure this is possible without creating a new layout just to have the title sheet be in the correct orientation. Is this an accurate assumption?

      Upon sending 3D cameras to layout, I've noticed that they don't come through with the same aspect ratio as shown on my screen. That means I need to zoom waay in to get the view to look correct on the layout. What gives? Is there some setting I'm missing or is this a bug?
       
      Here you see a screen shot of my camera (exactly as shown, with no toolbars turned on so it's the full CA window) and the view as sent to layout (again, cropped perfectly to show how the camera came through). Next I match the widths and put them side by side to show the difference. What accounts for this? I have been unable to figure it out.

      Hello,
      This is a reoccurring issue, and I have stumped the folks at tech support.  Often, my roof framing plans are showing roofs on two levels.  I show the second level roof via reference display.  The problem is that the text inserted either on the level I'm working on or on the reference level does not display properly.  If I insert text or a dimension on the level I'm working on, the text displays behind the reference drawing.  If I insert the text on the reference drawing all is well, until I either zoom or move the drawing on the screen at which time, the text again displays behind the framing.  Looking for a work-a-round.
       
      Thanks,

      PS: I'm looking forward to meeting fellow CA users at the IBS in Vegas.

      Hi 
      I am using x10.  I have a kitchen type that I will multiply many times and save by unit #. I need to have the unit # show up on my layout page for each plan that is saved. 
      Not sure how to save the units and have the info show up. 
      Thanks in advance!
