Does anyhone know why on Remodeling Floor plan Elevation that siding is covering up doors and windows? I copied existing plan over and made revisions.

Also some walls on the interior is not connecting. Any help here also.

Rebuilding the roof corrects the door/window problem.

 

The walls are connected. It's the way you have them defined that makes them show this way.

The 2" roof overhang on the porch front wall seems to be the problem. Set to the default of 24", or even 12" and things look OK.

this is an existing roof with 6 ft overhang across front of porch. Existing shows okay. But when I copied it and revised the plan it is showing the front siding issue going thru windows. roof fascia lines up with concrete below.

My guess is that at some stage you had that room defined as a Deck - you defined it with railings.

It has now lost it's room definition because it has lost its external walls (railings).

So, replace the Porch walls - it will probably be named automatically as a Deck.

Change it's room definition back to a Porch and the wall should be fixed.

      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.

      Im a new user - 24 hours into using Chief Architect!  I have the auto elevation tool on tool bar but cannot seem to get elevation views ? what am in doing wrong ?

      I have tried changing my elevation views to live view on demand and it appears fuzzy and does not print correctly, however all brackets appear on the elevations.  If I change them all to plot line view only 2 of the 4 will display brackets...what gives?  If I refresh all, it switches from one set of 2 to the other set. So odd.  I've only been working in chief for 5 days, so surely it's something I'm doing wrong?
      Please help!
