Framing issues


Recommended Posts

I just migrated from Home Designer Pro to CA X10.  I have a plan that is close to completion.  At one point, the framing was showing correctly- joists running parallel to my north and south walls.  Now, I have a big hole in the middle where my living room has no framing, and the joists are running perpendicular to the north/south now.  How do I figure out what I inadvertently changed?  Is there a way to delete and rebuild the framing?  Thanks in advance!

ok, I figured out the joists.


in the image below, I have a family room for a walkout basement.  How do I fix that gap between the wall and the ceiling?  I'm not sure why that happens.  The wall on the left is complete, the front and center wall is obviously an exterior wall, and the right wall in the image is also an interior wall.

      I am having Chief Architect X14 build floor framing and it keeps adding a double rim joist in the middle of a span. There is a Glulam beam in the middle of the garage floor, and a bearing wall for the other bearing line but I can't figure out why it is doing this. There are no walls above this floor system. First time posting so not sure what is needed to answer this question.

      Creating a Header schedule I select one row & click the "Find Object in Plan" which takes me to the wall frame view instead of the plan view.
      Do I have a setting off or is this normal?

      So I'm trying to get my rafter ends to show up like so (please ignore the rafter tails for all intent and purposes). I've tried adjusting the birdsmouth settings to get the desired result but no matter what I do, I can't get the seat cut. I can only get a plumb cut or a square cut, and the plumb cut is going through the floor and walls. Can someone please help, because this is driving me crazy! (also the steeper roof pitch is 25":12")
