I think I am out of luck, but.... Two issues with stairs and sections.
I have written a few macros I use in the plans for stair information, however I am unable to locate the stair in section view. It would make more sense to have this information on the section.
If I cut the section through the stair, I am able to dimension treads and risers, i.e. Chief can locate the objects and locate the landing. If I pull the section away and the stairs get drawn in "elevation", the only thing Chief will locate is the top of the landing. I have to place points and adjust the distance to get the correct dimension for treads and risers. Chief is however able to locate casing in this same view. Hoping I am wrong and someone knows a workaround......
I have generated a building section on an addition project I am working on. My questions are regarding line thicknesses,
drywall not showing up in the section, R-30 attic insulation showing as 4" thick. There is a couple other questions that I
marked on the plans.
I have attached my layout sheet with the building section. Can someone take a look at the section and let me know how
to change the line thickness of the P.W. Sht'g. and walls. Also why is the drywall not showing up. How to have the insulation
in the attic show up the right size. I have already tried changing the line thicknesses in the layer display options. That worked
for some of the lines, but P.W. roof Sht'g and walls did not change.
Since upgrading to x8 I am getting some really weird display artifacts. There appears to be some weird vertical alignment issue. There are vertical breaks and misalignment in horizontal and angled lines. This is showing up both in the chief client and in the export pdf's.
See attached pdf for example.
Any idea what the issue is with this and if there is a fix for this?

My roof was finished and the framing was fine, but then I had to change the size of the top chords in my attic trusses. Increasing the size in the truss spec box didn't raise the roof, but sent the extra width down into the rest of the framing. I changed the value in the default settings and rebuilt it (I tested this in another plan to make sure it works and it did) and now there are sections of the framing missing, most of it won't reach the roof, and my interior walls are different heights. I've triple checked every setting I can think of when rebuilding and I can't get anything to change.
Is there a way to have multiple wall types be recognized as a single wall? I think that's what's causing the missing ends on my exterior wall. I'm lost on everything else.
