Window Headers in X8d

Recommended Posts

I am not seeing my window headers in my framing detail.  I have selected lumber, default headers  and built the wall.  I found some post in here that led me to believe that Chief does not frame the header but then found a video that show how to frame them.  I have followed the video as precisely as I think I can but still no headers are showing over my windows

Select framed wall, Hit "Open Wall Detail", when details opened turn  framing Labels layer on. Do you see T* labels. Now check the framing schedule.

Not seeing the Labels or the headers....can not see where I'm going wrong...looks like it is showing up on the schedule but not the elevation.

You need a macro for that. Joe's "layerset opening labels will do it. Michael also has one.

You have a header on the Door Opening but not for the

Windows.  I would check the following:

  1. Window Heights
  2. Window Defaults for Window Framing.
  3. It's also possible that they got edited to a different Layer or even deleted.  If so, you can just re-build the Wall Framing.

Posting the Plan would allow us to find the problem rather than just guess.

Window heights were equal to ceiling height......guess I won't make that mistake again...and labels were turned off

 

Thank you all!
