Chief Architect is able to share settings, such as, defaults and wall types across plans allowing you to recreate a specific style from an existing drawing.
Layer sets are an effective way to control not just what displays while you are working, but also what displays in the views you send to layout and print.
To see framing in elevation views make sure framing has been generated and that the appropriate layers are set to display in those views.
Since mobile devices have different capabilities, it is wise to simplify your design prior to exporting your Chief Architect plans for use in the 3D Viewer.
A great way to show the as-built condition on a remodel project is to create an As-Built Mask CAD block of the existing structure following these easy instructions.
The display of foundation walls, slabs, curbs, piers and footings is controlled in the Layer Display Options dialog. The Foundations layer controls the display of ALL objects on Floor 0 in 3D views, but does not affect floor plan view.
Layer Sets are used to control the layer settings for different views in a plan or layout file. All views associated with a plan file - including views sent to layout - make use of layer sets stored in that .plan file. A layer set consists of a complete list of the layers in the current plan or layout along with the display settings for each layer as set for a particular type of view or purpose. These display settings can be modified, and can be different for each layer set.
When there is more than one floor in a model, it is often helpful to see how they relate to each other. Any floor can be shown as a Reference Floor along with the current floor.
