Finding Imported DWG objects

Recommended Posts

I've got a really busy floor plan.  When I import some DWG files to use as moldings, I can't always see where Chief has placed them upon import.  I'm assuming they come in at the 0,0 origin, but I don't always know where that is...  Is there a way to zoom into these newly imported, selected CAD segments?  If not, what is the easiest way to find them?  Is there a master objects list hidden somewhere in Chief?  Thanks, Kevin

Maybe try importing them into a blank cad detail or use your all off layer set with only the imported cad layer turned on and F6 for Fill Window.

Thanks Chop.  Yes, I guess importing into blank CAD or even a new plan would work.  I thought there might be a way to zoom in on selected - would save time.  Kevin

I most often bring dwg into a cad detail but I also have a point set at 0,0 in my templates and set the bottom left corner of the building there. It helps if bringing in dwg from architect which I do a lot. You can add it at any time though.
