Create a plot plan polyline by imputing distance and angle into the New CAD Line dialog then converting the polyline into a terrain perimeter.
When Chief Architect can no longer find a plan file from which views have been sent to a layout file this Message will appear.
If you have not created a layout or opened an existing layout in Home Designer Pro, you will see this message appear when you click the send to layout button.
Cross Section/Elevation, Backclipped Cross Section, and Wall Elevation views sent to layout are semi-dynamic; you can choose to update the layout or not.
If you would like to send a view to layout and so that it never updates when changes are made send the view to layout as an image or convert it into a CAD Detail.
A check plot is a test print that allows you to print at a reduced scale on smaller, less expensive paper so you can check that the drawing will print as expected.
You can edit an existing layout title block and border by selecting all of the CAD and Text objects and resizing them to fit a newly selected drawing sheet size.
3D views such as elevation views cannot be rotated on a layout page. If you would like an elevation view to be rotated, send it to layout in a different format.
When views are sent to layout you can specify a scale, or you can direct the program to select the scale that best fills the printed page.
If changes are made to a Layer Set used by a layout view, those changes will affect the appearance of the view on the layout page.
