Chief Architect can no longer find one or more plan files from which views have been sent. You may have moved or renamed the plan files(s) resulting in the broken link so that views sent from the plan can no longer be displayed in the layout.
If you have not created a layout, or opened an existing layout, then you will see this message display when you click the Send to Layout button.
Using the Layout Page Display Options dialog and/or the Layout Box Defaults, turning off the display of layout box labels is quick and easy. You can also open an individual layout box and suppress the label, giving you additional control over which layout boxes display them, and which don't.
The steps outlined in this article explain how to quickly adjust the layers that display in a view that has been sent to a layout.
Your layout is an integral part of the design process. It's the one thing that doesn't change that much from project to project. Save time with a template by following the instructions in this article.
The weight of a line refers to its thickness on the printed page and is described in absolute terms as a fraction of a unit, often 1/100th of a millimeter or 1/1000 of an inch. In Chief Architect and Home Designer Pro, line weights are assigned to objects, patterns, and layers using whole numbers that correspond to the numerator of this fraction. You can specify the Line Weight Scale by defining the denominator and the unit used in this fraction in the Drawing Sheet Setup dialog. If the Line Weight Scale in the plan is different than the layout, and you attempt to send a view from that plan to that layout, you may receive the error mentioned at the top of this article.
This Information message is designed to call attention to how Layer Sets are assigned to layout views. 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 - even if the change is made while working on an entirely unrelated view in the plan.
This message displays when you send a view to layout at a scale that will make it either taller than the layout drawing sheet's height or wider than its width.
When you close one of these types of views in X13, Home Designer 2022, or a prior program version, and the view in question has been previously sent to layout, this message box may display, allowing you to choose whether to update the layout view or not.
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.
The Project Browser is a convenient way to access all of the views that are present in a plan or layout file.
Layout Page Templates allow you to create one or more title blocks and borders and then assign them to the layout pages of your choice.
Live views may experience a loss in quality as you zoom and pan on the layout page. To restore a view’s resolution, simply update or refresh it.
