I have a pair of questions related to moldings and lights in version X14 of Chief Architect.
I have a basic knowledge about moldings and I don’t know how to build a “molding inside a molding” (pictures attached)? I just created a symbol but it doesn’t look so realistic.
I though about a solid polyline but it doesn’t allow moldings. If I make a molding polyline I can’t rotate it properly.
Another doubt is when I worked with version X12 all lamps in general gave light enough. In version X14 everything looks almost in half-light. I tried to manipulate the data light of lamps getting no results.
Whatever idea will be welcome. Many thanks!
I’ve been trying to build a plaid for a bed since long time ago but, despite it looks easy, I can’t get a good result.
What I do is create a rectangular polyline, convert it into a solid one, then convert it to spline > advanced splines and try to modify all the mess manually.
I’m trying to find out a way to “draw” what I want to build. It’s just a rectangle with some curves but it’s becoming really difficult. Any ideas?
As always, many thanks in advance
I am trying to make a custom column that has a brace at the top (required due to height). I have drawn the shapes I want and the center portion (the exposed structural column) easily converted to a polyline solid. When I try to convert the the two polyline curved braces into a polyline solid, it only gives me the option to make them polyline moldings. Attached is the Column brace.plan file and a pdf of what the overall column needs to look like. I'm using X12.
Thanks for help figuring this out!

I am trying to create an address sign using a square polyline solid and REMOVING text from the square like in the attached image. I know I can subtract other simple polyline solids, but how do I subtract a letter or number? Chief Architect tech support had no solution.
Thanks in advance
