I was watching a CA video on Saved Plan Views. In the Video he said that CA was shipped with 12 default plan views.
I'm looking in the plan view folder under the project browser and there is no default plan views.

 

Is there another location where these default plan views might be saved ? If so, how do I get them into the plan view folder
under the project browser ?

 

Thanks,

Mike

Are you using an older template plan?

 

Try starting with the Residential Template.plan

If you migrated your templates take a look here:

C:\Program Files\Chief Architect\Chief Architect Premier X12 (64 bit)\Templates

I down loaded the residential template and see the saved plan views. 
How do I get those plan views into my existing template file ?

Importing Saved Plan Views
To copy saved plan views from one plan file and import them into the current plan, select File> Import> Import Saved Plan Views.
Most attributes of a saved plan view are, potentially, imported. The Active Defaults, Layer Sets including Reference Display Sets, and the Current CAD Layer will all be imported provided that items of the same name do not already exist in the destination plan. If items of the same name do exist, they will be assigned to the imported saved plan view instead.
Two attributes are not imported: the Zoom/Rotation of the original view, and the Default Set. Even when the Active Defaults are imported into the destination plan, the imported saved plan view will be set to “Using Active Defaults.” Default Sets can be imported separately if you wish. See Exporting and Importing Default Sets.
To import saved plan views
1. Open the plan that you would like to import saved plan views into.
2. Select File> Import> Import Saved Plan Views .
3. In the Open Plan File dialog, browse to and select the plan file that you would like to import views from and click OK. See Importing Files.
4. In the Import Saved Plan Views dialog:

• Check the box beside all defaults that you would like to import.
• If the list of views is sufficiently long, a scroll bar will display on the right side of the list.
• Multiple line items can be selected by Shift+ or Ctrl+clicking their names. Then check or uncheck the box beside any selected item to affect the entire selection set. See Shift and Ctrl Select.
• Click the Select All button to place checks in the boxes beside all views in the list, or click Clear All to clear all of the check boxes.
• Select how to handle Existing Saved Plan Views in the current plan with the same name as those being imported. When Replace is chosen, the attributes of the saved plan view will be replaced, but not those of its Active Defaults, Layer Sets or Current CAD Layer.
• Click OK to close the dialog and import the selected saved plan views.
