I frequently transfer Chief files between my PC & Laptop. Consistantly when opening files after transferring, the width of text has contracted by a space and forces a 2nd text line to be created. This happens in both plan and layout files. If I then select all the text on a plan or layout and open, and then close, the text widths correct themselves and all is okay. Annoying. Any ideas or remedies? Thanks Glen
Anyone know how to change label text size? I am working on a large building and the layout scaling is 1/32". The labels are too small and cant be read. I cant find options for text size all the label panel, all it has that box that says use default, that I can check and uncheck. But don't know where to edit this default size or the individual label text size.
Does anyone know how to create custom arrows for leaders. I know Chief has many different arrows to select but I am still old school and like the thick arrows that I used to draw that are Architectural. This has been one of my pet peeves is keeping my drawings looking Architecturally hand drawn i.e. text, line weights dims, and arrow are key.
I am having a problem with Rich text adding double arrows, one on each line segment. It just started doing this in X10. I have looked in Help and looked thru numerous pages on Search and find no option to even add a second arrow, much less turn it off! Very frustrating. Anyone know how to change this to just one arrow? One old topic suggested the Connect Line Segments might be turned off, but that is not the case; I checked and it is On.
I have doen all of my cross sections and details in AutoCAD and am trying tgo import into Chief. Everything comes across great except for my text formatting - if I dont explode my text in CAD prior Chief doesn't see it at all and by exploding it I loose all my formatting. There is ALOT of text to deal with. Anyone here know of a workaround for this? Thanks!
