I have been working on a stepped foundation and was wondering why in the cross section for the foundation it does not display the entire wall length? It seems to extend only until the perpendicular wall intersects it. I was wondering if there is a way to change this and if not what are the easiest ways around this or to accurately measure it in the floor plan view. I attached an image (in this case there is a 4'' gap on the left side and a 3'' gap on the right side of the screenshot). Thanks.
I have had this issue for a couple of years and just lived with it. I do have an iMac with the Apple mouse. Often when I do long end-to-end dimensions the lines are not straight or drawing a CAD object, they are off. I have my "angles" checked so that I am not drawing an off angle item. I have gone into Chief preferences and see nothing there and have also gone into the System Preferences on my computer to see if there are any controls for the mouse.
I never had this problem before. It used to be, that I didn't have to worry about actually drawing a straight line, as Chief seemed to make sure the intended straight line was drawn that way.
I put an example --this is a CAD line that I attempted to draw and I truly meant to draw it straight. What am I missing??

I'm having issues with my walls not returning over a lower roof plane on a raised section of my home. When I try to extend the walls it shows up on my floorplan inside with brick which is not accurate.
Does anyone know how to fix this?
