I use Chief architect pro x14. Is there a way to lock wall length once done with imputing all your walls? Every time I try and use the room divider tool my wall always changes lengths; I thinks its just because of the angle I watched a video on how to fix it and was just wondering if there an option to lock your walls from the dimensions changing and not just being able to select them because of the active layer display . I'm new to Chief architect and when I used Revit it had a lock constraint next to the dimensions line, so I never had this problem before. Does Chief Architect not have this as a feature?
I have a question on creating wall caps.
I have a plan with 12" Concrete Wall w/ 2" interior drywall for the basement exterior walls.
The 1st floor has 6" Siding exterior walls.
I have a U-Shaped stairs from basement to 1st floor in back left corner.
I want to place a wall cap over exposed basement wall where basement meets 1st floor in stair well.
How do I handle this? I can't find in documentation anywhere.
Sample 3D Picture with red arrow where I want "wall cap".
Using X13. Have "framing default" checked for "Allow Automatic Balloon Framing"...but, as you can see in the picture below it's not working. I have auto framing walls turned on...experimented with the joist direction...didn't seem to have an effect.
I'm on a MAC...maybe this is a reason? Does anybody know if this new feature in X13 actually works?
