Finding a Saved Camera that Does not Display in the Plan

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> Project Browser  from the menu.

  2. Expand your plan's name to see the project categories.

  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.
