The information in this article applies to:

Chief Architect Premier


I created and saved a camera view, but now that the view is closed, I do not see its symbol in floor plan view.


In Chief Architect, camera views, overviews, and cross section/elevation views can all be saved with the plan file in which they are created.  If you have saved a 3D view but now do not see its symbol in floor plan view, turn on the display of the Cameras, Inactive layer in the Layer Display Options dialog.

A list of all saved views associated with the current plan file can also be seen in the Project Browser.

To see a list of saved camera views

  1. Select View> Library Browser  from the menu.

  2. Click the Project Browser tab of the Library Browser window and click the  beside your plan's name to expand the project category.

  3. There are two ways to open a saved, inactive camera view:

    • Double-click on the name of the saved view.

    • Right-click on the name of the saved view and select Open View from the menu.
