I hope someone has had this happen to them...I started a new plan this morning and when I try to move my walls by typing in a new dimension on either the manual or temporary dimension string, it will only move the wall in feet increments...the only "help" article I could find, only referred to the "default is in inches" for moving objects this way. For Example, I try to move a wall 36 inches and it moves it 36 feet. I cannot find the default to change this.
simple beginning of the plan attached...
Windows Prof 7, CAX7
I just started using Chief X7 and have come up against a problem.
In X7, every time I zoom in close and select an object, the temporary dimension extension arrows block out the view. In X6 if you were zoomed in and selected something, the extension arrows would not show and would not block the view. X7 ends up blocking the view unless I turn the default dimension arrows down to zero. Unfortunately, this also effects all the manual dimensions as well. I’m using the same style of arrow in both X6 and X7.
See attached picture.
I click one side of the box and the temporary dimension pops up. From the selected line to the left is 12" and the arrow shows. To the right the temp. dim is only 1 5/8" and because it's so close, the extension arrow automatically doesn't show. So X6 automatically turns the arrow on and off depending on whether or not it covers the dimension. Is this a setting somewhere in X7? I took the pictures of the exact same plan, on the exact same line and in X7 and you can see it didn't disable the arrow on the 1 5/8" temporary dimension.
