ALIGNING FLOOR PLANS

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to align floor plans in layout?  I want each floor to exactly overlay the floor above and below on the sheets.  Thanks!

Have you tried the copy, place and hold method?

Try placing a marker on layout page zero and then you can point to point move anything to that marker.

Thanks everyone, but I'm not sure how either of these methods works.  If I do point to point, it says to hit the double center arrows button and then pick the second point, but it picks the center of the cad drawing rather than a specific point.  I'm not even remotely understanding the copy, place and hold idea.  Sorry, new to X12, haven't really used Chief since X1.

1.  Send main floor plan to main floor plan layout page.

 

2.  Copy main floor plan from main floor layout page.

 

3.  Go to Foundation page in layout, place and hold position.  Change to Foundation View.

 

4.  Go to Second floor Layout page and repeat step 3 except change view to Second Floor.

David,

 

It took me a couple of minutes to figure out what you were saying, but I did figure it out.  This is PERFECT!  Thank you so much!  This was one of the issues that drove me crazy in X1 and I never did figure it out, so thank you again!
