Looks like a collection of icons and Style Pallets, not so much a set of "tools".

 

I'd probably be disappointed to purchase and then find out that was the case, so I'd want to know, and would expect you to say if that's what is included. And of course, it's important to include what versions of Chief/Home Designer this works with. Not everyone is running X14.

 

You might consider an install program to automate the manual editing of files shown in your 2nd video. People that cannot figure out how to do this on their own (icons and Style Pallets) probably won't be comfortable editing files.

Wow @solver that’s pretty harsh to troll someone’s post for offering symbols and content! 


You know a style palette is still a tool right?  I would say 90% of users don’t have the know how to put that many style palettes together to do those items.  The other 10% understand the work involved and value of the work put in, and 95% couldn’t put it all together with custom icons.

I love this tool pack!

The instructions were easy enough to follow with one minor step (at least for me)

I needed to click on each icon then press enter or OK to accept the new icon which took a few seconds.

Thanks again for this great tool.

Might also look at the included library items included and organized to make this work flow work.  I can't imagine how much time went into this.

My point is simply that no where did I hear Rene, or see him say something like:

 

I've developed a set of Style Pallets that make quick work of changing cabinets, and a toolbar with an associated set of icons that make accessing those Style Pallets quick and easy. I've also included several Architectural Blocks linked to icons in the new toolbar.

Because I've used tools already built into Chief, like Style Pallets, they can be easily modified by the user to do exactly what they need. For example, if the included 3 drawer cabinet needs different drawer sizes, simply open the Style Pallet and make your change.

 

-----------

 

I'm only suggesting that he be clear about what someone will receive.

 

While having a dedicated toolbar is convenient, all of this could be done by accessing items in the library.

Eric,

A lot of what Rene provides are Tools that set specific limited Style settings.  This allows extremely quick editing of a variety of things.

Unless you've really seen these in action it's not fair to make the above statement.  Some of the Toolbar Buttons do in fact select specific items in the library but that's just a starting point.

Hey Eric, you simply beat me to it, haha. I sometimes post just so I can get a link so that I can cross-post. If you or anyone else had navigated to my shop yesterday, they would've seen a detailed description, it has been up for several months now, I just hadn't posted here yet. You also have to agree to some lengthy contracts and such, typical shop setup.

I added the shop listing verbiage to the original post for clarity as well as a link to the listing.

The suite of tools seems simple enough and I've had a few live streams explaining how people could make it themselves but I have spent several hundred hours developing this system into what it is today. It would be easy enough to recreate and I have some videos on my YouTube that could point people in the right direction. My guess, since we have the blueprint, is that a very proficient user of Chief Architect and Photoshop could recreate the system with the architectural blocks and style pallets in about 10 hours or so, and probably another 20 hours to recreate my custom symbols.

Happy to have anyone support me here, it has been a ton of work running tech support on this stuff and thrilled that people are getting get use out of everything. Thank you all so much for the support and for the comments.

      For reasons unknown to me, I can no longer delete: Library items, or Catalogs, entire floors, of a plan. These are the things I've tried.
      Not sure what else. The program acts like it's going to delete, I get the warning, acknowledge it, and nothing happens. 
      This didn't happen in X12.  Any ideas why in X14? 
       
      Thanks in advance,
      Scott

      the X14 Layout Wall Surface Triangle Lines Issue has come back for me , using thelatest Nvidia Studio Driver in Win.10.  anyone else notice this?
       
      This is the Layout I am currently doing..... I am losing so much time with X14 between this , the Save Issue , and all the other "little anomalies" .....
       
      4 of 12 so far.......

      Since upgrading to x14 at least 2 of my co-workers in my department are having a text issue when saving as a PDF. I have not had the issue they're having but it's becoming an "inconvenience" that if they need something sent to PDF, those of us not having the issue will have to open the file and do it for them.
       
      I've attached some pictures of the issue vs what it's supposed to look like.
       
      Is anyone else having this issue and knew the solution to fix it?
       
      How it looks when they send to PDF

      I have a new video that shows how my "Screened Porch Library" for Chief Architect Premier works with X14...and it works great. 
       
      It's the easiest and fastest way to create custom looking Screened Porches...and if you are using X14 you can now see through the screen into to room. Fantastic new improvement the engineers at Chief have brought us. 
       
      Have a look...

      1.    YES, I have read Chief Architect's X14 migration guide.  
       
      But I want to dive deeper.   I would love to know the way you prepare to move things over.  Do you go through and clean up files?  Do you move some files to an X13 folder that are no longer needed, but "just in case".  What about your templates you have created for Layout?  Do you clean up your library?
       
      I know we all approach this differently.  I have been using Chief Architect since Chief version 8.  So, have done a lot of migrations, but always feel at times it could be done more neatly, cleaner.
       
      Would love to hear your approach.
