ACADuser Posted September 4, 2014 Share Posted September 4, 2014 I feel like I'm learning to crawl again. Just installed Chief Primer Trial.Have looked at many videos on the Internet & from Chief.I guess I missed the Chief 101 video.Open a sample plan & find myself in Layout #1.How do you get back to Model Space? (If that is what you all call it)In a new template file I want my default wall to be 5/8 stucco + 7-5/8 CMU + 3/4 furring strips @ 16" o.c. + 1/2 drywallI found all but the furring strips, although I added a 3/4 air space/ insulation which will work for the trial but not for future BIMI have a window I adjusted to my liking & want to update existing windows (Match Properties)How do I copy the properties of that window to other windows?Are there any preferances that you would suggest changeing?One thing I prefer is to pick a start point & then pick an end point but you must pick & drag to draw a wall.Can that behavior be changed?When you hit Escape the current task is ended & you are put in the previous task mode.I prefer to be returned to the Pick mode on any Escape. Can that be changed?I want to change all text & dimensions to use Arial Narrow. Can you do a global change?BTW I am a Autocad user which may not be in my favor for transitioning to Chief. I tried Envisioneer, even bought it but returned it at the 30 day mark.There were too many work arounds in the basic text, dimension & CAD work areas. The basic drafting environment was too clumsy for me.Hoping Chief will be more to my liking.Thanks in Advance Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
