Can I open Saved Plan View Sets in other plan files?

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if there is a way so use Saved Plan View Sets from one plan in another plan without completely redoing my template. Thanks!

      My firm has structural standards that are normally done in AutoCAD. I want to be able to achieve them in chief architect.
      This is our section annotation. I was able to create the top but I need help on the triangle on the tail.

      Also, is there a way to change the appearance or display the structural framing members as a polyline in plan view and have them as original in 3D? 
      We currently use polylines for our joists, headers, girders, beams, rafters, etc. with a 1" to 3"  Global Line Width and either phantom, continuous, or dashed/hidden line types in AutoCAD.

      I want to be able to produce our structural drawings like in chief architect instead of going back in forth because I like the auto framing features in chief. 
      Let me know if additional files are needed for clarity. Or if this is the wrong forum for this topic.

      In doing some ruby stuff to automate information required by building department code examiners, so I wrote a bit of simple code

      to get this. 
      But I need that in an elevation, not in a plan view.  No joy it seems.  

      Anyone know why this is?

      Hi Chiefers,
      Quick question. Is it possible to display plan view in the watercolor mode? So far I can only get watercolor to apply to the 3D views that chief generates.
      I have a sample of what I am talking about generated with Sketchup imported dwg from a chief file.
      Chief normal version = Sample 1, sketchup watercolor = sample 2

      I am running CA Interiors X9 and have been working in a split view - plan view on one side and full perspective in the other.  I copied some windows and placed them in the perspective view, but they do not show on my plan view.  Any thoughts?
      Thank you

      Hello helpful forum people,
      I am looking to produce a plan set for marketing purposes. The realtors selling one of my current projects are asking for the plans to show the flooring materials in each room. I am unsure how to do this in Chief. Can chief even do this? I have done it with other software, but can't seem to figure out the chief method. I really do not want to manually do this in Photoshop.
      Any hints or tips welcome.
