Am I the only one having problems getting Function Keys to work on a MacBook Pro (with the Touch Bar feature)? They didn't work on my 2016 model, and still don't work on my new 2018 model. Function Keys do perform their expected behaviors as assigned by the operating system, but not as "Hotkeys" assigned within Chief Architect. I am concluding that CA has not tested or remedied Function Key behaviors on Mac notebooks newer than 2015, and that they must not be supported on these newer Macs. Am I wrong about this? Please tell me I'm wrong about this...
I have been working in X10 w latest update, setting up my defaults in a custom floor plan template for my kitchen or bath remodels. When I check out my door style selections etc in the full camera view, the cabinet lines are blurry and jagged WHEN the camera view is at an angle. When the camera view is straight on like a wall elevation, everything is perfect. I edited the current camera and turned off bloom, reflections, ambient occlusion etc., but it made no difference. I hope someone can tell me how to eliminate or improve what should be a straight forward quick view of a room. Thank you so much.
iMac Retina 5K, OS High Sierra--
I have several screen shots showing:
1. A straight on full camera view without these issues
2. An angled camera view and Chief Architect default camera settings
3. An angled camera view with all of the default camera settings turned off.
HELP! Trying to determine the best system to auto-input interior measurements into my newly purchased Chief X9 (IBS2018) software loaded onto my MacBook Pro or iPad. Looking around it appears the Leica 910 Pro system may work, but not seeing where others are using it with Apple products. I have a large 10,000+ house that I want to produce an as-built drawing in March2018. It has many areas with high ceilings and lofts with complex rooflines. I'd love to invest in the correct instrumentation to speed up data input into Chief Arch. X9. I'd also be willing to switch to Windows system if necessary. Also wondering if there are tripod mounted 3D auto-scanning systems that work with Chief. X9. Does Chief offer training with these systems that go beyond Room Planner?
Thanks, Jim Jones
MacBook Pro w/OS10.13.3 Mid 2015
Chief X9 upgradable to X10 once beta is done.
I am planning to finally make the move from windows pc to mac sometime later this fall. I am tired of all the problems with pc, viruses, windows 10 and Microsoft. Seams like you have to be a computer tech to use now days. Can any of you mac users out there give me feedback on your imac system, what you have, memory, graphics card, etc. and how Chief Architect is running speed wise on your system, any other thoughts? I'm looking at the 27" imac and others specs yet to be determined.
I have waited patiently to upgrade my iMac to Sierra because of all the problems I experience with Chief when I upgrade to a new version of Apple's OS. It is now the middle of Feb. are people still having problems with crashing?
I also have NOT downloaded Chief X 9 because of the same issues--I have been snake bit too many times with crashing, losing hours of work, graphics not displaying properly etc. I just want to avoid all of those headaches and am hopeful that the kinks have been worked out.
