    Attach your plan and I'll have a look.

    Plot plan before floor plan?

    Start with the plot plan. Once drawn, save a copy. You will want to rotate it so the house is drawn square to the screen.
  5. Watch on YouTube: http://youtu.be/InRDAh5BZJk?hd=1
  6. Look again at the image I posted above. The cabinet filler is tiny -- 1/8" deep, 1/8" high, and could be 1/16x1/16. Placed back against the wall no one will see it.
  7. For centering a cabinet between 2 windows, or more specifically the casing on each window, place a cabinet between them and drag each end of the cabinet until it bumps into the casing. Open the cabinet and set the width you want.
  8. No -- as you found out, it needs to stay. A picture/drawing would help explain.
  9. This feature was just added to Chief this latest release -- center between 2 points, and in chief, you can pick up centers and edges of things. When I was using Pro, I frequently drew CAD lines to use where there was nothing to locate. Center cad lines on 2 windows. Draw a 3rd line connecting those 2. The center tool will find the center of the connecting CAD line.
  10. Make a small cabinet to act as a filler. You will need to change the cabinet defaults to allow a reduced width. Place the filler cabinet and size it, then bump the other cabinet against it.
  11. I believe you are correct -- might check the Bonus Catalogs for a horizontal outlet, and sill color is the same as casing color.

    You changed the ceiling height to what is shown by the short red line. You can see a black line in the 2 taller walls showing the level of the ceiling in that room. Ceiling height is one way of controlling wall height. Start by raising the ceiling 8', just as a test. Use a cross section or elevation camera to see what happens. And turn on Auto Rebuild Roofs.
