I am helping a college who is having issues exporting a Chief File into a CAD . dwg file.
The issue is, she had imported a .jpeg of a clients survey to draw over to create a site plan.
Now trying to export the file to CAD, it will not export the .jpeg with it (that we sized / rotated into place).
The other option would be just to import the .jpeg into CAD and re-size / rotate to fit, but wasn't sure if their was an easier way.
See the files attached.
thanks in advance for the help!

Looking for design partner for upcoming projects. My previous designer used Chief and he is too busy to take on additional work. Ideally looking for someone who may have building experience in addition to being a designer. Looking for someone who can deliver preliminary floor plans and elevations to facilitate proof of concept, someone who can design to specific standards for ARC review and submission standards. The designer will need to understand page naming conventions and all related requirements for the city of Bend Oregon for streamlined permit submission. Structural drafting and coordination with structural engineers.

I'm having an issue in X10 using the Edit Area (All Floors) tool to rotate my site plan to a know reference line using the Make Parallel tool. I select the terrain perimeter (on the line segment I wish to align with the reference line), then select Edit Area (All Floors). I then select the Make Parallel tool, set to rotate the entire polyline, and select my reference line. Everything rotates, but a line segment of the terrain that I did not select gets the perpendicular treatment.
I know I've done this before, but for the life of me, I can't figure out what user error is involved.
See attached. (Notes in plan)
How do you dimension the distance between the property line and the setback line? I can't seem to get any of the dimension styles to "click" onto these lines. Do I have to draw a perpendicular line and add arrows to the line...and show the dimension?
Surely I'm missing something simple...
