I am working on making a craftsman style column, but I would like to control the base and the column/post separately.
In the Symbol DBX there are sizing options that seem like they should offer this option, and I've tried. But as soon as I add two Z options, the whole symbol stretches. See image.
It is working to keep the box cap from stretching, so that is nice, but not what I need. If I set up the top OR the bottom, it works perfectly for the top OR the bottom.
**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.
A few things I would like clarity on, if anyone has any thoughts. I was preparing a tiled floor and the client showed me the individual 2" hex tile with the smaller square accent tile and the border 1x2 tile. The only way I could reproduce the hex/accent layout was to choose the 12x12 tiles that have this layout on it. Given the size of the floor, this 12x12 tile would have produced a 3" hex tile. So I manually counted and measured and reduced the tile to 8x8. This was perfect. But I was unable to change the grout color, as it treats the entire square tile, not all the smaller tiles within. We wanted to end up with a grid of all white so we could decide where to have darker accents. It was hard to see. Also, when I tried to render it as a tech drawing, the tiles only show up as the 8x8. Some of the tile choices are actual physical materials, and some are surface colors/patterns. Kind of confusing. Also, when the option to stretch-to-fit isn't right, I uncheck and resize, but it's not clear if the stretch option was too big or too small, until I try a bunch of things. I also had to add floor materials for the border in two different ways so the tiles were going in the right direction.
Thoughts? Thank you!
