redline drawings during online meeting?

Recommended Posts

What is the best way to "sketch" over a floor plan during a video conference, sharing my screen with a client or consultant?  Occasionally it would be handy to be able to do a sketch the way I would use tracing paper during a live meeting. Can you do that directly within Chief?  or would it be better to use a pdf and software that allows you to draw over the pdf?

Yes that can be done if you like.  The PDF can be imported directly into Chief and traced over but there are some quality and speed issues currently and that can be improved by converting the PDF to PNG format before importing.  There is also software that will convert PDF to Cad  ( DWG ) and that will give you some snap points to work with.

      I used to be able to sub-divide rooms with ease by just clicking on one wall and drawing across to the other wall.  Since the update, it does not work.  The sketch tool also does not follow the existing walls, creating weird rhomboid shapes.  Is there a fix planned for this?  Really annoying and time wasting.
