Dimensions Are Huge

When I start adding dimensions poor chief starts to lag especially with electrical, where I need to add alot of them.

Maybe there is a trick to make it work as it should, CAD softwares don't have this problem at all.

Any suggestions?

Dimensions in other CAD programs are normally quite dumb while in Chief they attach to and adjust with changes in the model. This has an associated computational cost.

 

However, what you are describing doesn't sound normal. Unless you have an exceptional number of dimensions or you are running on exceptionally slow hardware, or your model is extremely big, or...

 

I would suggest getting in touch with our support team to see if they can identify the root cause of the problem and help you get your system to be as responsive as possible.

 

Posting a plan here that demonstrates the problem can help as well.

It is a little slower,  but not a deal breaker......  but slower in plan.....  in floor overview using elec anno set,  as quick as it should be......  yes,  in plan a bit slower scrolling in and out but again,  not a deal breaker for me...  I assume you know the back wall is not square to front wall......  yes the right wall is not square and I am sure that is intentional,  the left wall is square.
