Many architectural objects have a Components dialog that lets you control how that object displays in the Materials List.
Control what information is included in a materials list by using the Preferences dialog or using the Materials List Display Options dialog.
The Structural Member Reporting dialog allows you to specify a Mixed Reporting, Total Lineal Length, Cut List or Buy List option for lumber.
The Master List saves price, supplier, manufacturer, and other information about items in your Materials Lists and allows you to apply that information to items in future Materials Lists. Select Tools> Materials List> Master List to open the Master List. Chief Architect allows you to have more than one Master List. Only one can be active, however, and only the active list is updated with new information. You can specify which Master List is active in the Preferences dialog.
The Project Browser is a convenient way to access all of the views that are present in a plan or layout file.
