Footprint

Hello,

I am trying to create a plot plan showing the footprint of the building as per the video # 1930 (location at 10:50 min in the video). But it creates a separate cad details. I have traced over survey drawing to create a terrain perimeter and wanted to add the footprint. Does anyone know how to achieve that? I cannot insert that cad detail into my plan. Any suggestion?

You could paste it back into your plan from the cad detail but why not just use your layers to display the actual structure just the way you want it to look ?  You can make a Room Polyline or Living Area Polyline from the exterior room if that is all you need like at the very end of the video.

 I tried to copy and paste the data from the cad detail, but I was unsuccessful.

      Is there a way to move the plot plan dimension text?  Ideally, I would move it where it doesn't conflict with other lines/items.  See attachment for example.

      Chief Architect has been a blessing to me in the last year that I have been utilizing the software. However, I work in the United States Virgin Islands St. Thomas,  where there are seldom flat land to build on. Therefore, there is always a slope in the land and I am having a hard time landscaping. Are there any techniques or tips anyone can offer.

      How do you dimension the distance between the property line and the setback line?  I can't seem to get any of the dimension styles to "click" onto these lines.  Do I have to draw a perpendicular line and add arrows to the line...and show the dimension?  
       
      Surely I'm missing something simple...
       
      Thanks

      I want to toggle the terrain between existing and proposed for my client so they can see how much site work will be required for the project. Is there no way to do this? I know I can use CAD lines to show this information in a plan view or section, but need to view it in 3D also like these pictures show. To do this i had to delete the elevation region, which is obviously not an option in the real world.
