X10 Issues with refreshing multiple Elevation Views

Recommended Posts

This has been an issue with X10, when I select multiple elevation views (mostly Cabinets elevation views) on a layout page, some of the views don't update or the cabinets will be missing the doors and showing the shelves.  Just checking to see if anyone else has this issue.  If I update one at a time, then the views typically update correctly.

 

Just checking to see if anyone else has this issue and if there is something I need to do to fix it.  It is nice to be able to select all the views and then click refresh after making kitchen changes.

 

Thanks,
Roy

I do not believe it is possible to update multiple elevations at a time. I always update them one at a time with no problems, I have no idea how or why I would want to update several elevation views at a time. Updating elevation views places a load on one's PC hardware which I do not believe is a good idea even if feasible. I do not believe elevations can even be simultaneously updated, programming wise. Of course, I could be wrong and missed a "new feature" since I started using Chief in Version 4 but I think not.

If I do an "update all" for my elevations and sections (which I do after a number of plan revisions) I have noticed a few issues.  My garage doors have become see through, only the panel lines show, and some of the exterior doors have double opening indicators on them.  If I them select them and update individually, they correct themselves.

This is currently happening on a plan I brought forward from X9 so I will wait and see if it happens on a new plan started with my new X10 template.

Sherry,

Just shows to go you, that Chief has so many gadgets, it is easy to overlook one or two. Being a long time user, I just do it that way I did in Version 4 :) . Newer features are sometimes a little less than reliable. Thanks for the update (I doubt that I will ever "know it all" when it comes to Chief).

I have not had this issue,  nor have I had Mon Ami's issue,  but I have experienced the SUN SHADOWS on exterior elevation not updating.  I have not noticed it of late,  but I would  not be surprised if it was still an issue.

This problem may just be related to the plan I'm currently completing.  There have been another few things that tech support is working on.  All may be related to X9 to X10 migration.

      I think I am missing something. I want the "Text Below Line" on my Elevation Camera Labels/callouts to show the sheet number. And make this the default. Does any one know how?

      When you unlicense  x11 it also unlicenses x10 or if you unlicense  x10 it also unlicenses x11. That is fine and I understand why it is being done. However is should also work the other way if I license x11 for my laptop then it should give me access to x10 or vise versa..
      Case in point, I licensed x10 on my laptop to go into the field and meet with a client on a job, I have been working on for a while. Unfortunately the drawing had been opened and saved in x11 and was in the wrong file folder. Being in the middle of nowhere without internet connection I was hosed <that's the nice word> thanks to chiefs new way to  license. If you are going to remove access to x10 and x11 if just one is unlicensed then if I license one product the other should be licensed on the same machine it should automatically give access to the other product.
      Chief please fix this MAJOR licensing problem.
