Creating construction documents in Home Designer Pro is easy. This article will show you how to use the layout feature to prepare your designs for printing.
Plan sheets are documents that can be used to present your design to a builder or building department. Home Designer Pro uses Layouts to create these.
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 in Home Designer Pro, you will see this message appear when you click the send to layout button.
This message displays when you send a view to layout at a scale that makes it either taller than the layout drawing sheet's height or wider than its width.
Cross Section/Elevation, Backclipped Cross Section, and Wall Elevation views sent to layout are semi-dynamic; you can choose to update the layout or not.
One way to edit an existing Home Designer Pro layout title block and border is to select all of the CAD and Text objects and resize them to fit the newly selected sheet size.
