X10 Resizing plan views or images on layout. FIXED

Recommended Posts

**I contacted customer support and found my answer.

when you send your view to the layout if it is in no scale like before now you just have to hold the "x" key and grab the corner to resize. Hope this saves someone some headache**

 

I have not seen this addressed anywhere but I am hoping someone figured this out. 

 

In all previous version of Chief if you pulled the corner blocks with your layout scale turned off you could resize windows to their relative scale but in X10 that changed to altering the view window of the image or imported plan segment. 

If anyone could tell me if there is an option to still use the original corner pull tool it would be much appreciated.

There are now several ways to resize a layout box the same way yet we have lost the default left click and proportionally drag out the corner of the layout box that we had in X9.

 

Please see this thread for the complex detailed way it needs to be done now.

I really hope tech support did not suggest that their solution was the same as the X9 functionality because the "x" and drag is the same as X9 but is not proportional.

FWIW it is simpler than that explanation, unless I missed something there?

Have a hotkey for rotate resize about point, once active just drag the corner as in prior releases, hotkey deactivates RRAP. No points, no X...hotkey, click drag release, hotkey.

There must be something I missed Mark.   Can't seem to make it work but would love it if I could.  Could you post a 20 sec. video ?

      I've created my layout templates, according to their sizes. Within the template everything looks great - everything fits within the sheet margins, the page size aligns with what I've titled each template to be, etc. However, when I go to send my drawing to my prefered layout the 'Drawing Sheet Setup' drawing sheet size is a different size. So when I change the setup sheet size to what I want then my entire layout is far too large and I need to scale everything back down. (the blue outline in the image below is my page outline 18x24)

      Hi 
      I am using x10.  I have a kitchen type that I will multiply many times and save by unit #. I need to have the unit # show up on my layout page for each plan that is saved. 
      Not sure how to save the units and have the info show up. 
      Thanks in advance!

      I am hoping someone can tell me how to handle this.  I have done all the framing, and using the project browser, sent all the Wall Details to a Layout page.  When I first did this, everything showed up perfect...The wall detail names on the walls in plan view, corresponding to the labels in the Layout.  
       
      Well, I made a couple of window changes, rebuilt floors and ceilings and now what I have is this: The wall detail numbers show up correctly in the plan view, but the layout shows: "Wall Layer 4 Viewed from outside".  I must be able to change the Views on the Layout to correspond with the plan view!
       
      HELP!!!!
       
      TIA
