Unexpected Solution With The New Plan View Feature in X10

Recommended Posts

I always wanted a way to change floors to the foundation level when I changed the Anno Set to my Foundation Anno Set and it was always a 2 step process both down to the foundation and back up to the main floor. With a foundation plan set it changes floors and Anno Sets together with one simple step. SWEET!!

Yes, the plan views are indeed incorporated into my template plans, never have to set them up again

Me too. After watching Jared Baehmers video about setting up his templates (below link), I decided to erase my entire template set for X10 and start from scratch. It cleaned up the initial template file by 100k. I also took Jared's advice because he mentions that enclosing a room on your template, that room, even when erased, retains memory in Chief. So even if you erase the room and redraw a new room, it would automatically get labeled like the old room that was in it's place. I never realized that until I tested it. So my new template only has a few walls on the plan that I use regularly, but no defined rooms.

Hi Ed , I have watched Jared's Video Previously and need a new Template for X10 after finding a few issues with old plans brought forward , if you have time would you mind looking at my Post below ( from a few weeks ago ) and share any tips about starting a new Template from scratch Please.  I don't want to clutter up Larry's thread here with that, Thanks.
