Do you mean the Dimensions as Chopsaw has pointed you too or how to Start with a Feet and Inches Template Plan ?


Profile.plan       is the Imperial feet and inches OOB CA Template


ProfileM.Plan     is the Metric OOB CA Template


(OOB = out of the Box /default)

      I'm new to Chief, I'm using X-8.
      I'm starting to convert my AutoCAD title block sheets into Chief layout sheets. I have one converted into my main layout sheet. That took sometime to get it correct.
      In my usual plan sets I have 3 different types of title block sheets. The first one is my site plan sheet. This sheet is broken down into 4 blocks. The largest bock is
      for the site plan. The 3 other blocks are smaller and of equal size. In one I show a vicinity map. The second is a legend of symbols and abbreviations.  The last one is the sheet index.
      The second sheet is my main title block sheet, which I use most often. This sheet is already converted
      The third is my general note sheet which also has my door and window schedule.
      Is there a way to have these three sheets as layout sheets in the same plan files.
