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?

      I have a Water Supply view and a Drain Line view.  I want to show Hot and Cold water supply ONLY in the Water Supply view and Drain Lines ONLY in the Drain Line view.
      I am using polylines to draw my water supply and my drain lines.
      How can I show ONLY Water Supply in one view and ONLY Drain Lines in the other?  It seems I can only show ALL polylines or NO poly lines.
      What am I missing?  Is there a way to do this?

      I have a small commercial project with civil files created by a Civil Engineering firm on their title block. I would like to include their drawings on my sheet index on my title page for the entire project. I have created a blank page for each of the civil sheets in the project browser and checked the box "Include in Layout Page Table". I would like to be able to have these sheets listed but I don't want them to print. Is there a way to tell Chief to not print these sheets, but include them on the sheet index? I suppose the easiest fix is to just create a sheet index with text and manage it by hand, but hoping for an automated solution.
      Thanks in advance.2150plan-3.layout

      What is the best method for displaying preliminary design concepts to clients of the same room? An example being kitchens; I want to show multiple cabinet layouts but would rather not have a multitude of plan sets for their project from doing a "Save As" method.

      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!
