template(S) missing

Recommended Posts

Starting a new design, and like I have always done b4, started it from a temp-plate that I had set up for this specific builder via the File pull down.  I get the popup of "was not found".  So I checked a couple others that came with Chief and that I have not modified and get the same message (see attached).  So I followed the paths to these templates and can open a new plan via this method.  How do I get it to work via the file pull down??

Tthey are in My Docs>CHIEF>temp>.. that's what I meant when I said I followed the path.   I can open a new template from within this folder, but cannot from the File>new plan from template pull down in Chief.

Its like a disconnect from that pull down, because they were there.

Where have you directed chief to look for your data folder ?    Preferences> General> Folders> My Data Folder: __________________________

You should be able to navigate to where they are from the open template dialog.

Nothing has changed on how I open a new plan.  I always use the pull down from under the File menu.  And I checked out the preference setting per your recommendations Chop (see below) and it appears correct.  But when I do try to open, I get the not found pop up.  Second attachment.  BUT.. I can manually go into my folder C:\Users\mtlde\OneDrive\Documents\Chief Architect Premier X9 Data\Templates, click on the template and it opens correctly with all the settings.  My third attachment is all the templates via that path.

Are you using New Plan From Template, or just opening a new plan using the default template?

So you can access the correct template from File Explorer?

 

Can you copy it to your desktop, or some other place and access it from Chief there?

Did you try re-establishing the file path in Preferences ?
