Updating Layouts

Recommended Posts

I have made changes to an elevation and the message pops up asking me to update my layout when I exit. I click yes because I want to see how the layout works with some of my material regions. My question is, is there a way to update the elevation so it makes changes to the layout without having to exit out and reopen the layout?

You could set your layout box to live view and update always. You could always revert back to plot lines once you have what you want. Live view uses more computer resources.

      Most of my layout sheets have general notes such as SEE SHEET A7.1 FOR SCHEDULES.  On occasion, depending on the project, the sheet with schedules may change to A6.1.  Is there a way to reference a specific sheets label so if that changes it will change in the note and not have to do it manually?  I do not think there is, but trying to reduce some of the things I miss when doing a final review.

      I have tried changing my elevation views to live view on demand and it appears fuzzy and does not print correctly, however all brackets appear on the elevations.  If I change them all to plot line view only 2 of the 4 will display brackets...what gives?  If I refresh all, it switches from one set of 2 to the other set. So odd.  I've only been working in chief for 5 days, so surely it's something I'm doing wrong?
      Please help!

      New to CA, scope of work is typically kitchens, but steadily growing and starting to offer more services then just cabinetry.  Many years of 2020 experience so I am looking to see how others are putting together layouts for their clients/installers and utilize the layout/template tools since I'm not fully aware of what can be done with the program. Currently am printing on 11x17 but am definitely open to going to 18x24. Please feel free to showcase anything and everything will be helpful I'm always looking for new ways to make things easier.  TIA!

      Anyone used scaling with X10 yet?
       
      in X9 I used to be able to send to layout as "no scale/scale to fit" and grab a corner of an object on a layout to click and drag to change the scale of the object.
      Now, grabbing corner handles reshapes the object on the layout page, which is a nice add, but I would still like to be able to drag the scale of an object on a layout page.
       
      Anyone know if there Is any way to still click and drag to dynamically scale objects on a layout?
