roof planes appearing on layout


Recommended Posts

I send a floor plan to layout, creating a new layer set. No roof planes show up. Perfect. But then sometime later, when I load the layout sheet, there are roof planes there. So I double click on the layout box to load the original drawing and there are NO ROOF PLANES THERE! So somehow on my layout sheet the roof planes show up but when I double click they are turned off on the original drawing in the plan. A couple of times I've re-created the layout page all over again and the problem goes away--for awhile. Unfortunately, one sheet I have has about six different layout boxes that all show the roof planes. When I click on any one of them, the original drawing shows with the proper layout layerset with the roof planes are not selected. I close that window and the layout sheet reappears WITH the roof planes.


I can recreate the sheet, but that means re-arranging all six layout boxes again and I'm just getting tired of doing this time and again. Not sure what else I can do. I'm still using X5 (just can't afford to upgrade).

      my address has changed and I want to update the existing layout sheets with a new template. How do I go about doing so?  Anybody got any ideas of how to make this change.

      I cannot get the breezeway roof on the opposite side to work and slope with stairs. I would appreciate any help.

      Have some pre-set cameras in my template for basic b/w exterior linework views that then sync to the .layout file cover sheet  - which is great in theory but my cameras don't seem to want to behave:

      Of course sending to layout as an 'image' solves this - but I wonder why the cropping changes when using the live camera?
      I tried a second camera view and it seemed to work more closely to how you would expect. Nearly identical cropping on these two:

      New to CA Architect 2021. Doing an addition that includes an attic room. I'm having trouble matching the roof and cieling deminsions for that area. It includes a flat and angled cieling plus pony walls that are also exterior walls. See the sketch with finished interior deminsions. Any help is appreciated.

      I am looking for some help on a roof plan I am working on (copying a 2d elevation from an architect) and can't seem to get this to look right! 
      (Also, I don't typically do exterior renderings and thought I would get some practice in - but clearly have no idea what I am doing :))
