Little Xs - how to remove

Recommended Posts

I'm using Chief Architect Premier X11

 

I have all these little 'X's can someone please tell me how to get rid of them?  I've been really playing around with the roof and i THINK they are from that but at the same time i have a couple random ones outside where the roof is -- i cannot get them to go away. Help!

 

thanks in advance

CAD -  Points - Delete Temp Points

 

 

 Above is quicker/best but Hitting Delete on the Keyboard , while absolutely nothing else is selected will also remove them one by one.....( keep hitting delete) , and I'd definitely uncheck the option in Preferences so you never get them automatically.... if you don't want them.......

Learning what they are and how to use them might not be such a bad idea either.

 

By the way, I love them and I use Temporary Points (both auto and manual) almost every session.  I just assigned the Delete Temporary Points tool to a hotkey (the minus sign on my number pad).  The + key is Place Point Marker tool, and the forward slash right next to them is the Rotate/Resize About Point toggle.

They're very helpful when doing roofs manually. Louis Fernandez used to call it a laser tool for roofs.

      Hello, I am trying to put together a floating deck on top of a roof patio. As soon as I draw the deck it cut a hole in the roof slab. How can I achieve to show the deck?

      can anyone explain how and help me enclose between this new gable roof and ceiling. Also looking toward house thru gable closing in with Hardi-siding. The old roof is showing thru and something else when I do a rendering (see attached). Need to look good for a client in 3 D. They are adding a roof over existing 10' x 20' patio. 
       
      thank you if you can help.

      All,
       
      I am working on a house that the customer wants a vaulted gable roof over the great room. I would like to get this gable roof to span the entire great room if I could, but can't seem to get the roof lines to work. I also don't want a very tall gable wall at the great room. See the below images to what I am talking about. I also attached the plan file for reference.
       

       

       
      Any suggestions or help will be appreciated.
       
      Thank you in advance,

      having a difficult time getting the clear story wall done.  tried quite a few different ideas but none really worked well.  i drew in an attic wall but when i try to extend it forward it screws up the walls below.
       
      Anyone know how to do it correctly?  i have uploaded a few pics of the area and my plan file.
       
      thanks  andy

      I am having a difficult time with the framing of the rafters; in regards to birds mouth specifically. I am looking for assistance as I have tried many different options in aligning them to the beams. Please help me! I'd greatly appreciate it!
       
      Ps, I only began to notice the difference, when I changed depth of hip rafters to 3.5".
