Binding a PDF or JPG to a titleblock

I know that I have seen this before but somehow I cannot seem to find it anywhere.  I am trying to bind my logo to my titleblock so it shows up every time and does not have to go looking for it.  I was at one of the Chief seminars and we had quickly gone over this and now I seem to have forgotten how.  Just one of those things that if you don't do it enough, You call on help from other users.  The main reason for asking is my hard drives have failed and I need to replace them and we all know that when that happens it can be days worth of time lost trying to reinstall all your programs and getting setup once again just the way you had it.  Well that is my situation and it could not have come at a worse time as I am so darn busy.  Thanks for any help.

      I am trying to do a presentation plan and am using a top down orthographic view with watercolor and overlaid lines. I can't get the resolution I need exporting an image from CA so I have sent the view to Layout as a live view. We also tried it as an image. The problem is that every time I try to create a PDF two walls disappear. The view box is large enough, so I haven't cropped the view, I've had our veteran Chief guy look at it, and we're stumped. Here is the result:
       

      Here is the view in Layout:

      And Here is the print preview:

       
      Has this happened to anyone else? I have tried outputting this about a dozen times and the same two walls are cut off every time. 
       
      I am running CA Premier X12 on a Dell with these bells and whistles. I also have Bluebeam Revu as my PDF print driver in addition to the "Export" function in CA. I have tried to print and to export with the same result . Any help would be appreciated.

      I've never seen this problem before - I "print" my layout sheets to Chief PDF, and the floor plan comes up with super-heavy linewieghts, making it virtually unreadable.  No problem with the rest of my set including elevations, sections and roof plan.  Any thoughts about what is going on?

      I would like to hire a drafter to setup a print template/titleblock and print layout.

      I typically insert pdf's of details from the manufacturer's in my CD's which really slows down my system.  Is there a better format that I could convert to that would be more efficient in chief(PNG, JPEG, GIF, BMP, TIFF) without losing quality?

      Working on my first project in Chief.  The attached PDF is a screen shot showing part of a PDF created in Chief and the layout page that the PDF was derived from.  In the drawing I drew the triangles in the gable to represent louvered gable end vents.  In the drawing, they are fine, but in the PDF, the triangles are shifted a couple inches.
       
      Any idea what's going on here?
       
      Thanks
