Auto Story Pole Dimensions Issue

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this was an issue in X11, but in X12, I added "FIELD VERIFY" to Trailing Text under Segments and it also added "FIELD VERIFY" into the extension next to the elevation.  Fortunately, in this case, that is fine, but maybe an issue in the future.

The framer does not care about ceiling height but instead top of stud wall.

Top of stud wall (plate) and rough ceiling are the same thing.  On this particular project, it is a remodel, so the framer needs to match existing elevations.

I think you mean Top of Wall Plate and Rough Ceiling are the same thing...   Typically  that is probable right, but I usually use Top of Plate as well

I am also a structural/civil engineer and I have always associated plate height with structural steel.  But as long as the guy swinging the hammer understands...

Depends on construction I usually use strapping theen apply the ceiling makes for a more uniform ceiling.

Yes, in Chief that would be the Finished Ceiling Height though , not the Rough Ceiling Height which would normally be the Wall Height or Top Plates.

      Is there any way to force new objects such as a window, wall, or door to snap to the grid? I have my snap grid/snap unit set to 1". I would like for new items to be placed in the plan on a whole inch and not fractions. As it is I can drop in an object and the dimensions to it will be off the grid and not a whole number. I have to manually move the object to get the dimension to a whole number. I have attached an example of my problem. To many unwanted fractions.

      I don't have the option for auto interior dimensions available in the dimension drop down menu. Am I missing a setting that makes its available? Auto exterior is there, NKAB is there, Just not auto interior. What am I missing?

      I need my CA walls to match these drawn measurements, but I'm having trouble getting both the diagonal-wall-length and horizontal-wall-to-horizontal-wall dimensions to agree. I think it's because CA can't/won't automatically alter the angle of the diagonal wall.
       
      Is there a way to get everything where I want it without eyeballing and manually fine tuning the the angle?

      Does anyone have a good way of doing a dimension for an arc.  I was so used to AutoCAD's nice way that you could dimension an Arc/Radius easily and have not found one way to do it nicely that I like.  I would love for CA to have an Arc dimension child menu that would be customizable.  I would also like CA to have the the dimension feature a bit more customizable as well as I don't really like the arrows either and would love a bit more of an Architectural arrow.

      Ever since I have updated to Chief 11, auto interior dimensions is not in the drop down list.  Where did it go?
