Newbie Question- Exact Dimensions

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I am new to chief architect and I am having a bit of trouble creating floor plans with exact measurements. Many times when I try to change a length of a wall, it will shift another wall over in the process. A textbook that I use advises me to work in a clockwise direction and I have but it still shifts certain walls. Is there a way to control which direction a wall can be extended rather than hoping it extends in the direction that I please? Thanks. BTW I use x6.

Without seeing exactly what you were doing it's hard to say, but one thing you can check for is this… When you are about to enter a dimension into the dimension field look right next to it to see if there are a few little icons. Those decide exactly how you will be adjusting the wall. Click on the appropriate icon before hitting enter.

try selecting the wall that you are trying to move and click on the temporary dimension that you are changing.

There is a good video on this in the Chief training section if you have SSA.  Yes, you have full control over your dimensions and walls.
