    I'm trying to snape 2x12 corners together on the frame for the floor joist and trying to get 12' 6" ,but I keep getting 12' 6" 3/16 with a 3/16 gap so every time I stretch 2x12 over to get rid of the gap it appears on the opposite corner. I stretch again,it shows up again back to the other corner. what am I doing wrong?

  8. I would like to upgrade to something better than pro-2018 but now the x11 is 3000.00 and the renewal is 700.00 a year, pretty expensive. So my choices are auto cad LT for 60.00 a mth or chief x11. As it looks Auto Cad LT is the better deal and I always have the latest version. Can someone please give me an Unbias opinion on the pros and cons of both options so I can make a well-informed decision. thanks,
