The information in this article applies to:

Chief Architect Premier or Chief Architect Interiors or Chief Architect Lite


The display of dimensions on my screen is too small when I am zoomed out.  How can I make their display bigger so that they are easier to read, without affecting the size that they will be when printed?


The on-screen size of dimensions can be specified in the Preferences dialog.

To change the display size of dimensions

  1. First, launch Chief Architect and choose to Open  a plan.

  2. Next, select Edit> Preferences .

  3. Under Appearance, in the Minimum Display Size for Dimensions:, specify the number of Pixels.  

  4. Click OK to apply this change.
