HINGE/DOOR SWING INDICATION IN ELEVATIONS

You must have switched you default rendering technique to Technical Illustration for elevation cameras which does not seem to display Opening Indicators.

 

Switch back to Vector View and you should be fine.

Yup, that fixed it.  Seems strange though...technical view should  show technical details...like door swing.

 

Yes I thought so as well but it does not seem to be so.  No harm in making a suggestion if that is your presentation preference.

      Hello, I have attached my plan and the site picture from the backyard. Why is the brick veneer overlapping my basement window. What am I doing wrong? Site existing condition picture attached backyard

      My chosen floor keeps appearing black (it is medium walnut floor from the Chief Architect library). I tried to see if it was all of them, but it seems to just be this single flooring type. I haven't touched any of the display settings for it, so I'm at a loss. Any help? (I'm very new with Chief Architect so this might be any easy fix)

      Is there any way to create a small gap or offset between the door and casing? Like a real door would have, to leave just a tiny bit of room for the hinges. Specifically for open interior doors. I've made a door hinge symbol I'd like to use, and I assume I'd have to make a different one for various swing angles, but I'm not seeing any obvious way to create that small gap. By default, Chief's doors just meet the casing at the corner completely, leaving no room. I could force the hinges in there, but they would clip through the door and casing and look less realistic. 
       
      I'd also like to add a strike plate to the casing and latch to the door, but short of placing the symbols myself that doesn't seem very plausible right now. Maybe a suggestion for a future version of Chief.

      I am using Chief Architect Premier x9
       
      I have exported my chief file to a 3D viewer file so a client can look at it.
      When I went to open the file though, most materials are not there for example the siding is just shown as one solid colour vs a horizontal pattern.
       
      thanks in advance.
