Default dimensions to finished floor/ceiling

Recommended Posts

Good morning, 

 

Is there a way to set your dimensions to default to the finished floor & ceiling rather than subfloor?

Which dimensions are you referring to?

On interior elevations for cabinetry, etc.

Review your dimension defaults for what is located.

Thanks. I've done that and also searched but I'm not seeing where I can change the defaults for those specific things.

I guess I don't understand.

 

What do you get now that you want to change? Do you just not want the dimension to pick up the subfloor?

Yes - correct. I don't want it to pick up the subfloor, which it always does automatically. It's one of many things on a long list of complaints about dimensioning in this program. If I can at least take care of a couple of grievances it would save me a lot of frustration.

Dimensioning in wall elevation, right?  Have you watched the Chief NKBA training videos?

Hmm, I've watched some video through NKBA where they happened to be using Chief. Not sure if I've seen the ones put out from Chief. I'll take a look.

 

Thanks!
