Reference Layer Set Question (SOLVED)

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to show the hips/ridges of a roof either above or below using a reference layerset?  Am I missing something?  The edges of the roof appear (see pics) but the hips/ridges do not.  I've tried this with some of the Chief OOB templates...and I get the same result.

You might try turning off the XOR option.  If you draw the same line twice with XOR turned on, it is hidden.


For some more info about reference display settings see my post here:

No issues on my end, care to post your plan(s)?



Rene - Thanks for taking the time to help.  Dermot answered the question....I had "XOR" turned on.

I deleted my post after seeing Dermot's post, you resurrected it somehow!

      I'm working on a huge plan right now, and it's starting to run really sluggishly so I decided to take some time out to troubleshoot and clean up the file a bit. I've done a few suggested things (purge unused materials and CAD symbols, for example), and moved on to my layers. When I started the file, I imported all individual layers of the CAD file so I could work on the plan bit by bit, but it also resulted in a lot of unnecessary data being added to the scene. I'm trying to go through and delete all the layers I don't need or have finished with, but most of them won't let me. Some will claim there's still something on them despite nothing showing up when I hit Control+A, and others will switch to "Used in defaults," after I deleted everything on them. But I don't know what that means, and I can't figure out where in the defaults they're being used so I can turn it off.
      The layers that claim they aren't empty when they should be are bugging me, too. Control+A, zooming out and dragging a box over the scene never select anything for me to delete, but they still say "in use." I may be able to provide a back-up if necessary, though I'm not sure my company will allow it and, again, it's a very large plan. Can anyone help?

      I am initiating a walkthrough  and all my Landscaping layers are not showing up. All the Layers are on in the plan view
      that I initiate it from but they are off in the walkthrough. What am I missing & how do I fix this?

      Pergola Ceiling framing issue when sent to layout page from Pergola -Framing Layout set.
      I send Working PLan View to layout sheet w/o pergola framing.

      I send Pergola-Framing layer to layout sheet w, pergola framing and it automaticaly adds the framing to the working plan View floor plan. of layout. (How can I correct this issue). I put the 2x2's, 2x6's and 2x8's all on their own layer. Still cannot solve the isse. 
      I would  appreciate any assistance with this issue.I was trying to get to client tomorrow for review.

      Good evening, I was tweaking my defaults today and somehow I must have turned on an extra layer for temporary dimensions?
      How do I disable temporary dimensions when I am only selecting a wall?  For instance, I click on a wall ( I already have a dimension on the plan), and I get like a doubled mirrored effect of temp dimensions, very busy looking when this happens.
      Can you please assist how to disable ?  I do like the temp dimension when I am drawing a new show the length... so I want to keep this on...
      Many thanks

      I must be having a blond or seniors moment.  
      I am inputting an existing design for an addition plan.  When working on the foundation level, I want to display the main level railings so I can add in the stairwell.  I believe I have turned on the railing wall in my reference layer but it is not showing.  I am just going to use a cad box for now but would like to know what I am doing incorrectly.
