1 Controlling the Snap Grid and the Reference Grid

The Snap Grid and the Reference Grid fulfill two different purposes and can be manipulated independently in the Plan Defaults dialog.

2 Defining Corner Boards and Quoin Materials

The default materials for corner boards and quoins can be specified in the Material Defaults section of Default Settings.

3 Specifying Which Wall Layer Exterior Dimensions Locate

By default, a wall’s Main Layer is also its Wall Dimension Layer. You can, however, specify a different Wall Dimension Layer in the Wall Type Definitions dialog.

4 Turning Off the Reference Grid Display

There are actually two grids in Chief Architect: the Snap Grid and the Reference Grid. The display of both is easily controlled in the General Plan Defaults.
