Printing issues can generally be resolved by specifying a default printer, using the Clear Printer Info tool, or creating PDF, and then printing the PDF.
Create a PDF by installing a PDF print driver then using the Print dialog set the PDF print driver as your printer and then print your PDF document.
When the Print dialog is opened, the Drawing Scale is already set and is displayed as a reference only. The print scale can be modified in the Page Setup dialog.
The size and orientation of the drawing sheet is defined by the Drawing Sheet Setup dialog. When Drawing Sheet is toggled to display, it can be moved using its edit handles. A blue border represents the margins of the printable area.
Chief Architect can export to a PDF file by accessing the Export PDF dialog or one of the various Print dialogs, then selecting the Chief Architect Save As PDF option from the Destination Name drop-down.
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.
You can import .pdf files into Chief Architect in floor plan view, cross section/elevation views, CAD details, and into the layout. Once imported, PDF boxes behave and can be edited similar to imported pictures.
