Defaults

Having trouble figuring out layer sets and defaults.  I want to have my camera view always on PBR but when I think I've set it as the default, it goes back to standard view the next time around.

I want to always have the sun setting at a certain angle, and other specifics for the camera view. But none of the settings stay.  Also want to always have lights at certain heights off the floor and at certain lumens.   Can anyone walk me thru the basic steps? Thanks.

Are you changing the settings in your Template Plan?

 

 

Yes most of that can be done in the Camera or 3D view Defaults , but you have to do it in whatever plan you use for your New plans ( your Template File ) so the settings are there each Plan.

 

Look in Preferences>General>New Plans for the File you use as your Template Plan Name.  The Default in X10 of US plans is Residential Template.Plan

 

Also, it's good to have your Forum Signature filled in, especially with the Software Version, and of course a real Name is nice too :) ..............
See mine below in Blue for how to do that.


If you don't see my Signature then you have them turned off for the Forum so you need to Toggle it on by going to the Upper RH Corner of this Forum Window and Clicking on your Username and making sure Signature are enabled (green) and then Add your Own Sig. too :


UserName> Account > Signatures

Please take a minute to fill out your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left. 

 

This info helps others help you.


Your version of Chief (X9, X10) (Premier, Interiors) is the important info.

 

Make sure you turn on View Signatures too.

I am trying to create a template plan, just realizing it even exists, and the defaults I set, still don't stick.
