Finding created drawings

Recommended Posts

I am a new user and have created quite a few standard drawings. I noticed that in the opening page it was listing the drawings I created. I assumed I would be able to access all drawings from this location on a scroll down menu. Now that I have several drawings created I realize that I can only open the most resent from that location. How can I find the older drawings so I can move them to another folder for future use?

Open a drawing, click Save As. Observe where the drawing is being saved.

 

Simply opening a drawing from the Open menu should show where they are saved.

File associations are created upon the installation of Chief Architect. On a Windows system, you can use "File Explorer" to locate, move or file your .plan or .layout files anywhere you want. Then, simply double clicking the .plan or .layout file in "File Explorer" will launch Chief Architect.

Or...Preferences>General>New Plans>Open and Save As

I always have it set to Use This Folder.

I am not sure what the OOB setting is.
