Callout's And Elevation

Recommended Posts

I want to resize my Elevation Symbols once I draw them as this picture, . That is, if I created them in 1/8 scale, but I then want them in 1/2 scale (the smaller), I am not finding any way to do that other then re-create them.

Every visible object that can be selected has a dialog box and in that dialog box one can then alter or edit that object, try that please.

The dialogue box that I have opened, Camera Specification, has limited ability to change size

You can change the text style used by the cameras through your layers.  By default, your cameras will be on the layer called "Cameras" using the "Default Text Style".  Change your camera layer to use a different text style and the camera callouts will update accordingly.

Okay, with a little playing around, I was able to have it change...

 

I think this is perhaps one of the biggest mistakes we as Chief users make (actually probably true with life in general).  That is...getting something to work but not quite knowing why.  I find that when I take the time to understand why something is doing what it is, or how exactly to achieve the desired result, that time is extremely well spent.  I'm able to work with confidence from that point forward not worried about crossing my eyes and fingers hoping the stars align and things all fall into place for me. 

 

I would strongly suggest that when you reach these points where you need to figure out how to do something that (as much as reasonably possible) you take the time to FULLY grasp what is going on.  You'll be all the better for it and happy you did so.

      I'm sure this is simple, but I can't figure it out.  I'm new to Chief Architect...
       
      How do I get the callout labels to be smaller, like 1/2 the size they are showing on the image I have attached?  I am referring to the appliance and cabinet callouts.  I can't figure out where those text sizes are controlled. 
       
      I appreciate all the help!

      Hi everyone:
       
      I am having an issue with a split level. I am using Chief X11.
      The plan i posted does not have foundations since when i add those things get really weird and I think I need to sort out the issue with the levels first or the foundation will never build right. I have a room that is going to be garage however no matter how i define it the door from that room into the main house is above the level of the ceiling. see attached photo. I have also attached the plan. The exterior walls are a sip wall customized according to the manufactures specifications with a layer for the furred interior walls. The total thickness on those walls is 10 5/8" The interior wall is a customized interior wall that is load bearing for use in certain areas of the design.
