Message: No layout view or file was found.The information in this article applies to:
- Home Designer Pro
- All Chief Architect programs
Sometimes, when I select File> Send to Layout from the menu, a message says, "No layout view or file was found. Would you like to create a new layout window and send this view to it?"
Why does this happen?
This message will appear only in a specific set of circumstances, specifically:
When you try to send a view to layout;
No layout file is currently open; and
The program is unable to find a layout file with the same name as the plan that you're trying to send a view from.
If you click Yes, the program will open a new layout file and automatically give this layout file the same name as the plan that you're trying to send a view to layout from.
If you have particular layout file that you want to send views to, you should instead click No.
Then, select File> Open Layout from the menu and open the layout in question. When the desired layout is open, you can send views to it.
