I have been looking at the Chief Architect Trial software but have noticed some of tools are limited. Is there a problem?
The Chief Architect Premier and Interiors Trial versions are designed to let you explore the software's powerful toolset, but they do have a few restrictions to prevent users from producing files that could be used as professional construction documents or presentation material.
Specifically, the Trial versions do not allow:
- File Saving
- File Exporting
- Recording of Walkthroughs
- Printing or Exporting of Materials Lists
- Use of the Time Tracker utility
- Permanent changes to the Library Browser and its content
- Use of the CAD Detail from View tool
- Creating or saving of Plan Database files
- Exporting of Layer Sets
If you have questions about any of the restricted tools in the Trial version, there are a number of resources available for you to gain more information:
- Select Help> Contents & Index to view the Chief Architect Help menu.
Select Help> View Reference Manual to open the complete Chief Architect Reference Manual in electronic format.
