My "My Documents" folder on my work computer is actually on our server, and I know CA is not meant to be used over a network. I would like everything Chief Architect uses "My Documents" for to go in a different folder. How do I re-direct everything that references "My Documents"? I have started a folder on my hard drive called "CA My Documents" and was hoping to use that as the replacement folder. I have already moved all the CA files and libraries that I can find, but chief seems to look for that My documents folder sometimes.
I have a new laptop. I have installed my Chief X5 from disc to the new laptop,then updated it. My old laptop still has all of my Chief X5 plans, files, and textures. I exported .calibz files easily and loaded those to the new laptop. However, I am missing quite a few User symbols and textures that did not seem to install correctly. I thought my .calibz export/import would have taken care of that. So, where can I locate the missing ones in my file system on the old laptop, and then where do I install in the file system on the new laptop (I'm assuming a copy to thumbdrive and then paste to the new laptop) so that missing textures can be discovered by Chief?
Thanks for any help that you can offer. I did not find a specific answer in doing a forum search, some that were similar, but not exactly what I needed.
I was looking into a new laptop and wanted to see what the desired parameters are for optimum use in CA. I work with pretty big files (100+MB) and now it lags quite a bit. As well I am wondering if there are video cards that allow showing more than 8 lights at a time.
Thanks in advance
So, after using Chief (currently 9.54) for over 14 years, I'm upgrading.
But XP is no longer supported, and the latest Chief X6 won't run on XP (so I'm told). I'm accustomed to using a desktop, plus a laptop to meet clients. But I'm considering ordering a laptop only, with multiple monitor capability. Is anyone currently set-up this way? And is there a reliable laptop that will get the job done?
I generate full working drawings, and I will be expanding the rendering side of my business as well.
