Sending a .Layout to a Client - has missing information upon opening

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I seem to be having some trouble with the way a layout displays when I send it to a client. My assumption is that when I send the layout, and plan file all items should appear on the layout upon opening. Please note, I do have imported files in the layout, but I ".zip" everything with the layout and plan in the same file, so all items are together. However, some items on the layout still do not appear, is there something I might be doing incorrectly or need to add/lock to the layout?

 

Many thanks!

Chief will search the local folder for all items. So long as all items are included and zipped to the same folder their should be nothing missing, unless you have not managed to include listed items. 
What specific "Type" of item is missing? 

Upload it here and we can take a look

      A client sent me a old layout PDF file and I want to make changes to it. How can I turn it into a working file??

      I am looking for a solution on how to insert schedules into Layout. I have tried converting the schedule while in a Plan to a Cad block and then inserting into layout by Copy/Paste, but this deleted the Note # specific to each line item and I would then have to manually add them for each line item on the layout page.
       
      Here is a picture from a Chief layout where I have blue circled the schedule showing that Chief has inserted it into layout. Any ideas?

      I'm trying to send a Kitchen Island to my Layout in 2D without the other cabinets being in the elevational view. Is there a way to do that?
