I am new to Chief but so far I love it. Far better than my previous software. So far, the only problem that I have had is using macros to create a custom label for cabinets.
All I am trying to do is get chief's labels to match my manufacture nomenclature. I know I could manually change it on every cabinet, but that seems like to much work and honestly a waste of time. So could someone give me some help. Either a bit of a guide on custom macros and some recourses and documentation (which I, for the life of myself, can't find), or maybe a working-ish or example macro.
Some examples:(chief nomenclature, needed nomenclature)
Thanks in advance for the help! And if I didn't give enough information or if there is a better way to go about this, please let me know.
Oh, almost forgot. I am running Interiors x14.
Somewhere along the way here I found a good roof label macro and modified it to fit my use - which was great up till now that there seems to be a roof label fill which is background color (white) but it covers up the arrow for the roof plane itself. Does anybody have this issue yet and how can we control the label background on a roof label? I haven't been able to find it.
Some objects, like GFCI's, toilets with a handle, or kitchen faucets with a lever control are tedious to locate. When inserting them into a plan they are located based on the center of the symbol, including the 'GFCI' label or the side handle. Is there a way to redefine the 2D insertion point of these symbols? Thanks!
Wondering if there's a way to drop the '0' which is generated in front of the schedule numbers. It adds size to my labels and most of the time there are less than 10 items so it wouldn't be confusing - but I haven't been able to find any options where we can omit this automatically generated zero.
Anybody have any tips or insight?
Hi, I'm working on CA x10 Interiors. I have a kitchen with high ceilings and stacked cabinets, but can't figure out a good way to have all the cabinet nomenclature/labels to show in plan. If I fudge it in the plan, the elevations expose my work-around. I'd like to see both layers of labels in plan--any way around this other than manually moving each cabinet layer's label? I suppose manually moving the non-displaying label elsewhere in the plan may work...Many thanks. Scott
