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.

Awesome !  Will give it a try and report back.

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 ?

      using live camera views in layout, how do I change the size of these in the layout sheet.  I would like my renderings to measure 12" wide but I cannot change the size. Probly just an oversight on my part.

      How can I speed up layout? Seems ridiculous that moving some text WITHIN LAYOUT and not even touching my synced viewports has such an awful lag time. I have a fast computer and the modeling is plenty smooth. I also have used lots of other cad software and even old, clunky dried-up CAD software doesn't have the terrible lag that working in Layout has. 
       
      I've devised ways around it - trying to do everything in my model and nothing or as little as possible in Layout - but this is just bad and seems unnecessary. What is going on within the code when moving text like this takes a few seconds?
       
      Is this common or am I an outlier? I've posted a video of the lag time here - can anybody else corroborate this lag? Is it time for a (nother) computer upgrade, or will even DeepBlue have a similar lag time? Is it some secret setting within chief that is slowing me down like this?

      Hey all,
       
      Sorry for the slight tongue-twister of a title. I'm here with another novice question.
       
      When creating roof plans to send to layout, I'm running into an issue. After I choose to display all of my roof planes on the same level, they appear as though the program is deliberately displaying the lower roof planes on top of those that should be above. I've attached a couple snips showing an example of how one of my roof plans is drafted and another two with what that plan looks like in plan view. It's in the roof plan view but it looks the same regardless of the layer set I use.

      I am trying to do a presentation plan and am using a top down orthographic view with watercolor and overlaid lines. I can't get the resolution I need exporting an image from CA so I have sent the view to Layout as a live view. We also tried it as an image. The problem is that every time I try to create a PDF two walls disappear. The view box is large enough, so I haven't cropped the view, I've had our veteran Chief guy look at it, and we're stumped. Here is the result:
       

      Here is the view in Layout:

      And Here is the print preview:

       
      Has this happened to anyone else? I have tried outputting this about a dozen times and the same two walls are cut off every time. 
       
      I am running CA Premier X12 on a Dell with these bells and whistles. I also have Bluebeam Revu as my PDF print driver in addition to the "Export" function in CA. I have tried to print and to export with the same result . Any help would be appreciated.
