Text Rotating Incorrectly when Rotating Layout Box

Hi!

I use Chief for a semi-production home builder. We have stock plans that are customized. I want to be able to draw my plans with the front door side down, but when you send the layout box linked to a camera view to the layout page, you cannot rotate it.

So, I have to rotate my plan layout pages to fit the side view on our 11x17 paper. Rotating the title block and the layout-box itself is fine, but the dimensions text rotates incorrectly. All our text boxes face right or down.

When I rotate the plan-layout-box to the right, the text stays facing right, (now up) but the dimensions turn so they are now facing left / down. image.thumb.png.470a7b4c9725d66475513b0a99b696be.png

When I rotate the plan-layout-box to the left, the text stays the way it should still, but now the up-down dimensions rotate to the right/up.  

 

I have tried all alternatives around the "rotate with plan" checkbox in the dimension defaults.

 

Can anyone help me keep the dimensions the way they are on the plans? 

Thanks!

Elicia

      This issue started today (7/13/22) after I installed the x14 update. In my layout view, everything looks correct. The elevation layout boxes are scaled at 1/4" per foot, same as it's been for years. However, when I print a PDF using Chief Architect Save as PDF or Adobe PDF drivers, the elevation scale appears to change within the layout box defined area and is cut off. I have tried everything I know; deleting and recreating the page, deleting the camera and creating new elevations, checked print settings, layout set up, tried on 2 different computers and several other things. This issue is only occurring to the elevations. The site plan and floor plan layout boxes print correctly and to scale. Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Any ideas??

      Since upgrading to x14 at least 2 of my co-workers in my department are having a text issue when saving as a PDF. I have not had the issue they're having but it's becoming an "inconvenience" that if they need something sent to PDF, those of us not having the issue will have to open the file and do it for them.
       
      I've attached some pictures of the issue vs what it's supposed to look like.
       
      Is anyone else having this issue and knew the solution to fix it?

      Our company uses OneDrive for our file system. The company also has particular fonts they use for documents. Our Template plan file and layout file use those fonts but there's an issue with that. Anytime one of us opens a plan file or layout file (whether it's a new blank one or for an existing project) we get the 'Replace Fonts' Dialog box asking us to replace the missing font (company font) with another. Is there a way to get it to stop asking that each time and remember where the font is?
       
      We all have the font installed on our individual laptops. The fonts are also found on OneDrive. I've followed the article about this issue but the solution doesn't help since we all have the font installed but CA program can't seem to find it. Even if we replace the font with the same font (ie. it'll say 'Arial' font is missing and you select replace with 'Arial') that it doesn't actually replace it with that font. Once the file is open it chooses 'Verdana' font whether we choose the correct font we want or not.
       
      Any solutions that allow us to keep using the company font?

      Hey Mr. Chief Wizard,
       
      Is there a way to display only selected text in say a "Framing, Floor Plan View" active layer set that will not show up in the "Working Plan View"?  When I send to Layout, I would like specific text associated with the "Framing, Floor Plan View" to only show up on the "Framing" page and not on the regular plan view sheet that I have.
       
      Thanks,

      Good morning, would anyone know how to show the dimensions text horizontally and not parallel to where the dimensions is being taken?
      I am tried looking in preferences / setting / other chief talks with no luck.
       
      Much appreciated!
