I frequently transfer Chief files between my PC & Laptop. Consistantly when opening files after transferring, the width of text has contracted by a space and forces a 2nd text line to be created. This happens in both plan and layout files. If I then select all the text on a plan or layout and open, and then close, the text widths correct themselves and all is okay. Annoying. Any ideas or remedies? Thanks Glen
I know this has been talked about before but I can not find it and I can't figure out how to do it again.
I have a house drawing and I have the terrain drawn and I would like to orient the house differently on the terrain. I want to keep my house drawing square with my plan so it would need to be the terrain itself that has to rotate. I can rotate the terrain perimeter but that doesn't rotate the elevation lines etc. When I select the perimeter and all the elevation lines, i am not able to rotate the whole thing.
Anyone know how to change label text size? I am working on a large building and the layout scaling is 1/32". The labels are too small and cant be read. I cant find options for text size all the label panel, all it has that box that says use default, that I can check and uncheck. But don't know where to edit this default size or the individual label text size.
Does anyone know how to create custom arrows for leaders. I know Chief has many different arrows to select but I am still old school and like the thick arrows that I used to draw that are Architectural. This has been one of my pet peeves is keeping my drawings looking Architecturally hand drawn i.e. text, line weights dims, and arrow are key.
I have been struggling with this for sometime. I need to rotate the lot (including the dashed setback line) 10 degrees counter clockwise. I can not find the correct grouping to accomplish it, this maybe related to how close the house sits next the the setback. I start with rotating everything 10 degrees and the try to rotate just the house back to 90. Instead it also moves the setback with the house instead of keeping it 30’ from the property lines.
I have attached the file if anyone would be so kind as to give it a try or steps I should be taking.
