Calculating Square Footage

Recommended Posts

Hi, we are new to chief and wondering the best ways to calculate square footage for tile schedules.  We do a lot of bathrooms and have cheif interiors. Hoping to be able to export a schedule to verify square footage onsite before ordering material. 


Thank you!

You can also create a polyline of any shape and open it's dbx to show the area of the shape.

The Materials List might be something to look at. There are various ways of applying tile.

      Is there a way to download a picture of a tile from a manufacturer's website and create a material?  I am trying to use the attached pics of tiles for a backsplash in a kitchen and have followed the instructions on the videos, but cannot get the tile to align properly.  I have attached pictures of the two tiles I'd like to show the client, and a picture of what happens when I try to use the material.

      I just upgraded to X10 and all of my text boxes are misaligned so once I have finished writing my text and press OK to go back to floor plan view, I can only see half of the text. The text is also misaligned with the white background of the text box. The white background is where it should be. I have even tried to change the layer and alter it as a custom text size to see if it was a setting issue but it is the same problem for all layers.
