IMPORT DWG AND EDIT FOR CHIEF USE

Recommended Posts

In This Video, we import a civil engineers dwg site plan into chief.  We learn how to make sure we import at scale and edit as necessary then change the line types and colors so we can read it and scoot around the site block to locate building within the setbacks.

      **I contacted customer support and found my answer.
      when you send your view to the layout if it is in no scale like before now you just have to hold the "x" key and grab the corner to resize. Hope this saves someone some headache**
       
      I have not seen this addressed anywhere but I am hoping someone figured this out. 
       
      In all previous version of Chief if you pulled the corner blocks with your layout scale turned off you could resize windows to their relative scale but in X10 that changed to altering the view window of the image or imported plan segment. 
      If anyone could tell me if there is an option to still use the original corner pull tool it would be much appreciated.

      I am drawing a plot plan using CA line type with P/L embedded within the line itself. Is there a way to change the line type scale to make it larger ?
      I would like to space out the "P?L" in the line and make the text larger. Right now I am getting at least 50 of the P/L callouts on each property line.
      I Would like only 2 or 3 of them on each property line and if the callout could be several time larger as well. Is there a way to do this ?
       
       
      Thanks,
