Working in Windows 10 on a surface pro laptop. All updates for Chief Architect Home Designer Architectural 2020 have been installed. 

The library keeps freezing me out of my plan when I type a 2nd search in the search bar of the library browser. I can see the cursor out of the plan window but can't do anything but save and close the program to start again. This is very annoying having to start and close the program continuously. Are there any fixes for this?

I too have experienced problems with the catalog.

Chief is up to date & windows 10 just did an update.

I was able to "send the report" & continue working.

Opened a support query at Chief.

For the original poster:

 

Please contact our technical support department during our normal business hours for further assistance.

 

 

For Alan:

 

Does your library have any cad blocks with schedules in them?  If so, then you are probably experiencing the same problem discussed here:

https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/topic/26268-serious-error-occurred-send-report/

 

(Which is very unlikely to be the cause of problems in any HD products since they do not have schedules or cad blocks.)

 

If not, then you should continue to work with tech support so that we can determine what the problem is.

No schedules in my library items but the first occurrence was when I use the copy material eyedropper in one plan, switch to another plan & tried to paste the material.

Then in the same session in the library, I was selecting my folders. I'll see if I can reproduce the error.

I was able to reproduce the error & narrowed it down to two (so far) blocks with text.

I will add it to my bug report.

OK those blocks do have a "Layout Page Table" in them.

A layout page table is actually a schedule.  This problem will be fixed in the next available update.

      Many of these I have personally made or modified. Some of the content may have been created by others for which I will give credit. Many of the materials have free licensing, so no credit is needed. 
      Some of this content may slow down your program as I have a high powered machine and often times use complex and high resolution textures. I will try and give as much detail as possible. Use at your own peril!
       
      No but seriously dig through and enjoy, I've spent a good number of hours ensuring the quality of these symbols and will update them periodically- so CHECK BACK IN! and PLEASE GIVE A LIKE FOR THE POST OF ANY SYMBOL YOU LIKE, IT ENCOURAGES ME TO GO BACK AND REFINE/REDUCE/OPTIMIZE THAT SYMBOL. GIVE A DOWNVOTE AND IT'LL PROBABLY ENCOURAGE ME TO DO THE SAME THING...YOU'LL JUST BE A JERK FOR IT

      I am having an issue with the Library Browser where even when the top left Icon and in the view tab icon is show with a check mark to indicate being open but there is no sign of the Library Browser actually popping up on my screen or right sidebar, next to the Project Browser, as I have used it before. Has anyone else had this issue? Am I missing a setting that would hide the Library Browser or does this sound like a glitch/issue?

      Hi All.  
      Was working with two monitors - down to one, and now my library won't pop up.
      Did the obvious.
      Restarted,
      Reset Displays.
      Nothing.
      Am I missing something?

      Hi,
      I'm having an issue with X9 - anytime I open an item and try to change the material type, I get a pop-up box that says "searching for files" and it appears to be searching through my file folders, but it's on a continuous loop searching the same folder endlessly so the search message isn't going away and I have to force stop the program. I've tried opening different files to see if it was just happening with a possibly corrupt file, but it's happening with several different files so I don't think thats it. I called the help line and they are not familiar with the problem. They said I should try my luck here. 
      Anyone have this problem?

      Hello!
       
      I got a new computer (old and new are both Windows) and while the program and my plans transferred okay, my bonus and purchased libraries didn't transfer over. All I have is the basic core library. I've done some searches to try and figure out how to get them back, but I haven't found anything.
       
      Any suggestions or help on how to get my bonus and purchased library back would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Sorry if this is an obvious question, but I haven't figured it out on my own yet and don't know where else to look so I'm hoping someone here might know. 
       
      TIA!
