I did my drawings and I'm happy with where they are.  However, when I send them to Layout and PDF they do not fill the whole 24x36 Arch D page.  What did I do wrong?

 

Thank you.

That's something you need to manage.

 

Search the Chief website for articles and videos on Layout.

That's really not helpful.

They are trying to help you know what to search.  Here is the link for where to find the videos.  https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/48/creating-layouts-and-construction-documents.html?playlist=105


Since there are many variables on what the issue is and the description you are giving doesn’t help to narrow it down the best bet is to search the database for the answer with your information or post the layout file here if you want help from the pros.  Sorry not trying to be rude at all but Chief is a very complex program that has so many uses that they could ask questions for hours back and forth before figuring out what the cause of the problem is and how to remedy it.   
 

Best practice is a concise but descriptive question and explanation of the situation, pictures with description of issue, or best yet is to upload the plan or layout file.  Hope this helps.

You really haven't helped yourself with your description, most of us don't want to play 20 questions..... and you haven't posted the Layout for Comment or even any pictures of the Issue, ie:  you need to help us help you in other words...

 

However is sounds like you didn't send it to Layout at the right Scale  ( 1/4" = 1 ft being typical )  , you can rescale the Layout views if so ..or send them again at the correct Scale.

 

Make sure your Drawing Sheet Setup is correct and set to the right page size and scale and go from there.... for both Plan and Layout....

      I have been setting up my layouts for the past couple of days and really like the new format in X6.
       
      One thing that I tried to do today was to add a new Template Page for Block Plans which requires the Arch D size paper space, but I'm fine for all the other Template Pages at 11x17 paper space.  I had hoped to set the paper size to Arch D on the Block Plans Template page, but have found out that the paper space is ONLY set on Page 0, and it governs all other Template Pages.  Is this a feature that could be added; Multiple Paper Spaces on one Layout Template?
       
      I look forward to your response!
