Hello - I am new to Chief Architect and desperately need help figuring out this deck I'm trying to create. When I go to add railings to it, they are floating - which they weren't before. And the structure below is no longer showing up - I would like to have the deck reach the top of the terrain for a clean look. The hot tub is supposed to be sitting on top of the terrain as well, and the deck should be built around it, but I'm not sure how it got raised. The paneling also doesn't look as good as I'd like, but that is not main priority.
I also cannot figure out bay windows...one of the windows has disappeared, and I have the width I need and location of the window where I need it, but the deck is being built around it when I would like it to just continue underneath of it. If there's a way to connect the windows and not have brick in between - that would be great as well - if not, I am open to any help. I have attached the file here. Please help! Thank you!

Hello, I'm having an issue with the brick overhang the foundation when there is a transition from brick to siding.
The brick return is only supposed to be 2' but shows up on the elevation as longer, it is correct on plan and foundation pages.
I've attached images of everything my current setting and views.
I'm looking for advice on how to best render an addition where the addition is in one file, and the original house is in another file but visible as a reference file. This was my first time trying this approach (the purpose was to be able to split out new framing from old framing, etc.) and it works great - until I went to Ray Trace the whole project. Is there a way to make the reference file visible in the ray trace, or is there a better way to combine the files at the end for the final rendering? Thanks!
I'm wondering if there is an easier way to mass delete surfaces when trying to edit a symbol. This specific example was a light fixture I downloaded from 3D warehouse. When imported however I noticed the user had added an image beside the light fixture. So I went to try and edit the symbol / create a new symbol without that figure. Come to find out that the dress has a bunch of Polkadots on it and each dot will need to be deleted.
In conclusion, I wasn't sure if there was a way to delete this large area faster than clicking on each individual dot. I have run into this before with other symbols trying to edit them but I would just give up and not proceed as it would take forever to delete all surfaces.
I'm looking for a way to change a texture image. Not sure if there is a free photoshop type of program that can be used.
I would like to achieve the flagstone with a Natural Red / Brown Granite texture, and the fill between to be a Gravel texture.
thanks in advanced!
