Good Morning! I am upgrading to x11 this week and wanted to know what to do with x10 and x9 on my desktop. Can I move these over to a zip drive and retrieve them later if I need to view an old plan that I made? I'm trying to free up some space on my computer. I haven't used x9 since I upgraded to x10, so I'm assuming that once I upgrade to x11, I won't be using x10 either. What do you guys do?
So I have a remodel I am attempting to draw of a old house with a 4 square Gambrel second floor. No easy task, so the owner wants me to fit 4 bedrooms and 2 baths up there, but I am giving him options for 4 and just 3. With the upstairs Within the gambrel (not under it) the 4 corners are useless so space is tight. I thankfully will not have to ever draw the roof.. I think. So I drew the 4 bdr version and pushed to Layout page with first floor views etc. All is good. ... then I Saved As.. three bedroom version plan file, altered the second floor to only be 3 bedrooms, pushed to (same) Layout so both the 3 bdr and 4 bdr floor plans are side by side. looks great ..got them labeled, print to pdf and...crap the layout has two 3 bdr floor plans side by side.
I go look at the Layout and it now shows the same... I pulled back up my original 4 bedroom plan file and it too was altered to become 3 bedrooms. what the heck?
So Idiot me.. I restore a back up of my 4 bedroom file and perfect.. it is now a 4 bedroom file again. So I go to get my Layout and BOTH of the plan views are 4 bedrooms... and of course both plan files are now 4 bedrooms again. and There are no .bak backup files with the 3 bedroom layout!!! &^^%#$!&@%%!!! and $%##$*!!
Is there any way to recover from one of the UNDO files Chief writes as it lays down its trail of bread crumbs? there seem to be many of those.
And I wonder if this has happened to anyone else? I used to have similar issues with Microsoft Access doing unwanted (system-wide) blanket changes to multiple databases at once back in Windows XP, and apparently it was a cache problem if you had files which began with the same name like pumpkin1.mdb pumpkin2.mdb pumpkinspice.mdb pumpkinseeds.mdb, etc...
Thanks for any help,
**I contacted customer support and found my answer.
when you send your view to the layout if it is in no scale like before now you just have to hold the "x" key and grab the corner to resize. Hope this saves someone some headache**
I have not seen this addressed anywhere but I am hoping someone figured this out.
In all previous version of Chief if you pulled the corner blocks with your layout scale turned off you could resize windows to their relative scale but in X10 that changed to altering the view window of the image or imported plan segment.
If anyone could tell me if there is an option to still use the original corner pull tool it would be much appreciated.
