Blank box issue in layout x9

Recommended Posts

We are getting a blank box on our layout page in x9 Interiors when we send a plan to layout. It is on all pages. The box can't be altered or moved. It is in the upper left hand approx. one quarter of the the layout screen. When this happens you can still adjust and modify plans sent to those pages but it corrupts the print and you get a blank page when printed. Any thoughts? Has anyone seen this before?

Probably a leftover view on page “0” that is not linked anymore to anything. 

Goto page 0 and delete it.

Thanks for your responses. No luck with page zero. The line of the box is blue if that is significant. It can not be moved or altered. Also when you select print in the print dialog we get a very fast flash of something in print preview area. Prints nothing. This is a PC version by the way.

Absolutely significant.  Try going to File>Print>Drawing Sheet Setup.  I'd venture to guess your Drawing Margins are out of whack.

      Hi All,
       
      I was needing help potentially setting up a custom macro. I'm not sure how simple it is to do, but I would Ideally like to have a macro like %page.print% but is able to ignore the cover sheet. or Basically %page.pring% - # of cover pages (1) so page two which is the first page after the cover sheet would display one, the following page two, ect.

      I'm new to Chief. I'm using X-8.
       
      When I send my plan to a layout page in a 1/4"=1'-0" scale it does not let me use the tape measure tool in a 1/4" scale. My layout sheet is set up as 24"x36" D size
      paper. When I measure across the paper it shows 36" wide. If it was a 1/4" scale it should show 144".
       
      Is there a way to get the correct measurements in a layout page? Or do I have to go back to the plan file to get the correct measurements.
       
      Thanks,
       
      Mike
