Door schedule mixed up? X13


Recommended Posts

So, I'm working on this duplex, created a door schedule.... and the entry door labels are being mixed up somewhat with the doors into the garages.

Both entry doors should be D07, and both Doors into the garage should be D09.... but one of each is switched around...  one of the entry doors on the plan is called out as D09, and one of the Doors into the garage is being called out as D07... 

And, yes, if I open the doors from the plan, they are showing up correctly in the dialog box.

Got your message solver... I've been using Chief for many years (since version 8)... I used to post quite a lot years ago on this forum.   But, I haven't really run into any issues that I need help with for years.   If you don't have a solution, that's fine.   I'm likely going use my SSA for assistance, as I'm guessing it's a bug.

Based on the limited information you have posted, this does not look like a bug.


Objects in schedules are grouped based only on the text information that is displayed in the schedule.  The preview image is not used for comparison.  It is just a representation of the first door found by the program.  


In your pictures above, it looks like your schedule is including the door label that includes the hinge side, "L" or "R".  Since the doors to the garage are mirrored, they do not match, as far as the schedule is concerned.


If you want those doors to be grouped together, you will have to remove the hinge side information.  If you have other doors grouped together that you don't want grouped, you will have to add some more information to the schedule that makes them different.

Not really sure what Solver told you but this is not likely a bug.  I suspect that you have not included enough columns for the doors to sort the way you are expecting.  The only sort criteria that seems to be in play with your posted schedule is "3068 R EX" or "3068 L EX" so that is what Chief uses to categorize your doors for you in your schedule.

      When a pocket door is used in a plan, and the information is populated into the door schedule, is there a way to account for the 4.5" at the top where the hardware is hidden in the wall above the door?  The header height currently appears the same as all the other interior doors, and does not seem to account for this.  The schedule does get the width of the pocket door opening correct (twice the width of the door panel).
      Is there a reason Chief does not include this information?
      Is there a way I could adjust my defaults so that this information is included on pocket doors in the future?
      I have a client who is self-building, and although I explained that my plans are not an instruction manual for building (I'm an interior designer, not an architect or engineer), and my standard disclaimer says "door schedule is for planning only - refer to manufacturer specs for all installation instructions".  However this client went and put the header at the height listed in the schedule and is now shocked that he has to reframe, when he bought his doors weeks after the framing began.  He's wondering why "my software didn't account for that".  His framers don't seem all that experienced either.

      So.., I know this may sound counter productive and not make much sense to the 99%, but i think i might have found a bug in the software (X-15).  Here's what happened:
      When placing a default interior door I set the size to 2880 (Its a Swing door).  I then converted the door to a symbol and renamed it (I find it quicker for myself, to pick a premade door from the library browser). I then placed the door on a wall with perfect success.  It has all the components that I want and the type that i want. .  Here's where things get wonky.... I then change the size of the door to a 2080 and convert it to a symbol once again.  The difference now is it turned the new symbol door into a bifold door.   Does anyone know why a Hinged door would revert to a bifold door when the size is 24" or smaller?  Is this a bug Chief Crew?

      Regarding door placement tool:
      Does Chief have any hotkeys that toggle the door orientation during placement?  For example, toggle between inswing / outswing and left / right?

      The title basically describes it. Is there a way to display a door as open in certain views (i.e. an elevation view), but not in others (i.e. on the floor plan, or a different elevation view)? And, if I want it to display halfway open in 3D views, but not on the floor plan, is there a way to do that?

      Hello everyone
      New to the Chief forum. I'll get right to it... I recently got magic plan for an iPad I have to easily do a floor plan when on site (Have always used pencil and 11x17 paper). It has it's ups and downs, but for the need to know dimensions (I shoot with laser, and it auto populates) it's been great and has cut my sketching time in half. 
      I have learned that Magic Plan can export DXF files. I have been watching tutorials on YouTube, and have learned how to import DWF/DXF into Chief. Learned about layering and so forth. 
      Here's the problem. When I import to chief and get all my ducks in a row, and layer all I can, chief won't recognize the cad windows when I go into perspective view. chief thinks they're all door openings in the wall when I Cad To Walls. How do I fix this? Using Chief x10.
      Thanks in advance.
