Font "Chief Blueprint"


Recommended Posts

We have been using the Chief Blueprint font for some time, we noticed a few months ago that the font no longer would center in the text box. Not sure what has happened but this never used to be an issue. It makes it frustrating if you are trying to keep the text box centered with another object. I have played a little with the margins but cannot seem to get it perfect. I have tried other fonts and they are centered in the text box. I feel that this is a font issue? I attached pictures of how the text is placed in the text box and pictures of the text specifications dialog box tabs. Any thought would be great. Thanks

I assume you are talking about the vertical centering.

I don't know why that happens, but you can fix it with the margins.

You can enter negative numbers for the margins to get it exactly as you want.

Probably worth a bug report or at least ask Chief why it happens that way.

I suspect it may be that the centering is correct if you use lower case letters instead of uppercase because Chief is accounting for descenders and ascenders - which aren't used for uppercase.

      Our company uses OneDrive for our file system. The company also has particular fonts they use for documents. Our Template plan file and layout file use those fonts but there's an issue with that. Anytime one of us opens a plan file or layout file (whether it's a new blank one or for an existing project) we get the 'Replace Fonts' Dialog box asking us to replace the missing font (company font) with another. Is there a way to get it to stop asking that each time and remember where the font is?
      We all have the font installed on our individual laptops. The fonts are also found on OneDrive. I've followed the article about this issue but the solution doesn't help since we all have the font installed but CA program can't seem to find it. Even if we replace the font with the same font (ie. it'll say 'Arial' font is missing and you select replace with 'Arial') that it doesn't actually replace it with that font. Once the file is open it chooses 'Verdana' font whether we choose the correct font we want or not.
      Any solutions that allow us to keep using the company font?

      I'm working on a remodel of a house that is very small....and old. It is only about 1,000 SF.  My default text is Chief Blueprint @ 6".  This size font on such a small footprint seems way too large...but, I'm worried if I change it to 4"...and print the plan at 1/4" will the font be too small to read?  
      Maybe I should use a different font altogether?

      The callouts for the electrical symbols (threeway, dimmer, timer, etc) do not change scale with the electrical labels. I am working in 1/4" scale and the symbols are tiny. I am receiving complaints from my builder that they cant read the symbols.  Is there a way to change the size on the symbols?
