Preferences to New PC

Recommended Posts

I'm setting up a new PC and I'm having trouble figuring out how to migrate my Preferences to the new PC. I've read everything I can find but I'm not understanding how to keep Chief 'looking the same' on my new machine. Things like colors, crosshairs, icon size, etc. I haven't had any issue with copying all other relevant files.

Am I missing something obvious or do I need to make notes from the Chief Preferences on the old PC and then adjust them manually on the new one?

There is a KB article on migrating.

 

If you look at the folders used, it shows where preferences are stored.

I didn't find what you're referring to... which is why I asked here. 

What I ended up doing was taking a series of screen captures of the various preference settings (in order) and using that as my guide to match them up on the new computer.

I believe this folder contains preferences files that you should be able to copy from old to new system.

      I need some help with a two-story house that I am playing around with. I have tried every solution that I have found online and nothing has worked for me. The first two links are the methods that I have already tried in an attempt to resolve the issue. I have also gone to "Room specification>Structure" and tried to change the second "floor" height but it just automatically adjusts the "Ceiling Below" and I am left with the same problem. I feel like if I could lock the ceiling height and then change the floor height then I might be able to resolve the issue. I have attached a picture of the Orthographic Full Overview, the "Wall Type Definitions" from the solution provided in link 1, and "Room Specifications" where I tried to change the floor height. I am not in any big rush to get this fixed, but any help is appreciated. Thank y'all.

      I can't remember, or quickly find which layer controls the text portion of some electrical symbols. For my electrical set, most layers are light gray...and one of them is affecting the symbol display. It's gray as well, and of course, I want it black.
      Can anyone help me out?

      I can't get a skylight to build a square shaft when placing a skylight into a roof plane when the room does NOT have a flat ceiling. In my A-frame project, the ceiling is supplied by the roof and part of the skylight dbx is greyed out. Skylight works fine when its over a flat ceiling. Has anyone else run into this before?

      If I mull 2 exterior doors together in order to make a patio door that has a mullion, I can't see an option to specify this door as 'exterior' or 'interior'. This affects my schedules as I use a separate schedule for exterior and interior doors, because they're usually from unrelated suppliers. Am I missing something?
      I'd love the ability to be able to add a mullion to a double door.
       
      I now see that can be controlled in the schedule tab by exploding the Door Tab.

      I have a text macro in a garage plan that references the area of a polyline. In layout, that macro appears blank unless the plan file is open. Is that normal?
      I needed to open the layout file only (or so I thought) and make a few adjustments before printing.
