opaque windows in vector view

Recommended Posts

I'm using Chief 10.08 and am having trouble trying to change window appearance from transparent to opaque in a vector view. Basically I don't want to see into the house. Any suggestions?

Newer versions look like this.

Like Eric said. I am NOT sure if you mean X10 or Ancient version 10 but attached is a screen capture from X10. I no longer have a working seat of version "10" circa the year 2,000 AD.

Back then I remember having to place additional internal walls across the windows, had to use 2 plan files 1 for the elevations and 1 for everything else.

yep - I'm working with ancient  version 10. XP operating system....  only one of my many saved plans has the transparent windows. I have tried 3D>3D settings>options>vector view options> check opaque glass from outside.

Didn't use it back then but can you just change the window glass to white or gray instead of glass?

For such an ancient application I think Ryan's suggestion is the best you will find. I used versions 4-10 but my memory is not that good. My version 11 Or X1 will run only in XP x32 and currently my XP hard drive is not working. Try that and see if that does not "solve" your "problem"

found the solution - in trying to alter the window frame size, I set it i "0" which might have removed the glass. After resetting to default size, the opaque windows reappeared. Thanks all for your suggestions.
