Working on my first project in Chief. The attached PDF is a screen shot showing part of a PDF created in Chief and the layout page that the PDF was derived from. In the drawing I drew the triangles in the gable to represent louvered gable end vents. In the drawing, they are fine, but in the PDF, the triangles are shifted a couple inches.
Any idea what's going on here?
pdf vs screen image.pdf
For some reason, when I print to PDF some of the lines are shifting from where they are on the layout. It seems like it is just happening on the elevations, at least as far as I've noticed.
Here are some screenshots of the original layout:
This is what the PDF looks like:
Has anyone else had issues like this? Is there something I am doing wrong?
Here are the plans for anyone who has a moment.
So I don't know what the heck is going on here. I'm using several PDFs on my layout (like I've done many time before) and for an unknown reason the line weight on the PDFs are really faint when I use the Chief Architect Save as PDF option to print. The Preview and the Layout both show the line weights on the PDFs at the correct weight. It's only when I save out the PDF that it goe faint. Nothing else on the drawings change. The weight for everything drawn in Chief is good. The PDFs themselves have the correct weight when you open them. It's ONLY when I'm saving out the PDF that the line weight gets reduced on ONLY the PDFs.
See the photos below. They demonstrate what's happening.
Here's what I've tried already with no change:
-Run in in both black and white
-Save the PDFs to the Layout file
-Toggle line weight on Layout on/off
Does anybody know if there is an option to automatically save all imported images in the plan without having to remember to check the 'save in plan' checkbox?
At the moment, it's a checkbox option at import [or a setting that can be changed after] e.g. its set to not save in the plan as default on import. The problem is that in my workflow, many images that I add to a plan as supporting files are kept in a local download folder that I regularly clear out. You know the routine, quick search on the internet, locate picture, throw into the plan and move on etc. It's something I might do hundreds of times a week when every second counts. It's often the case that supporting images are not always resources that you want to necessarily permanently keep on the server. Occasionally, when I open a plan, if I have forgotten to save an image in plan, the missing image resource is lost and I have to find it again [or not] on the web. Interestingly, images that are copied and pasted in are automatically saved in the plan.
Somebody tell me that there is a secret place buried or hidden in plain sight that makes 'save in plan' by default? Many thanks to the community.
