Changes Made In Defaults Won't Take

Recommended Posts

Well I keep trying to set all my framing defaults and when I click done, then open up defaults again many of my changes did not stay put. I'm attempting to make sure none of my layers are locked. What am I missing his time?

You guys have been great today! This would be much harder without you guys. If anyone ever needs any help with structural design issues just let me know.

Can you be more specific as to which defaults you're changing?  And perhaps make some of the changes you've described and attach the plan.

For example, under framing defaults, beams. It is stuck on LVL 1.75x11 7/8. I change it to 6x12 lumber and click done. Then when I go back to defaults it's changed back to LVL. I'll post the plan in a second post

I am having the same  problem.  I cannot change the default post.  roof beam and floor beam sizes.

 

I think this is a bug,  please report it.

Give it a try Michael,  maybe you can figure it out.

This is a bug in the X8 beta.  If you try to change any of the post or beam defaults through the Framing Defaults or Build Framing dialog, the changes might not stick.

 

This should be fixed in the next available update.

 

For now, the easiest way to avoid this problem is to edit the post and beam defaults directly by double-clicking on either the post or beam tool.

 

In the future, I would encourage you to report these kinds of issues to our technical support team.

I haven't downloaded X8 yet.

Thanks Dermot, I'm hesitant to report anything because it's almost a given that my problems are new user issues. The odds of me actually finding a bug... Well I guess I should have bought a lottery ticket!
