Problem from legacy plan

Recommended Posts

Several years ago I upgraded to Architectural Home Designer from an old Broderbund product.  I brought drawings from that old product over and have consistently run into odd errors, most of which have disappeared over various upgrades.  However, there is one error message that persists:

 

c:\p4sync\dev\releases\21.2\chief\camodel\cabinet\cabinet.cpp(1394): Warning #272003803

"A zero width cabinet has had its width changed to one inch (2.5 cm)."

Build: 21.2.0.48x64

 

No matter what I do, I cannot find that damn cabinet to delete it from the plan.  There seems to be no way to locate it, and I'm tired of getting this message every time I open the plan.  To try to start over from scratch on this 4500 sf home would be a chore of mammoth proportions, especially as I need it to develop renovation plans in several areas.

 

There is no such directory on my C: drive as p4sync.  There is no file on the drive called cabinet.cpp.  Any suggestions as to where or how I might find that damned cabinet?

 

Thank you so much!

Have you tried selecting and then deleting all the cabinets?

 

It should be obvious which ones to put back.

 

Select all cabinets, Cut and Paste into a new plan. Select the good ones and put them back (paste hold position?).

Legacy plan files are by default problematic, especially in terms of materials and symbols, due to the changing programming of those objects from version to version. The first thing I do when opening and working on a legacy plan is to start from scratch in "Edit - Default Settings" all categories and reassign materials to materials in my Library Browser, replacing older symbols with ones from my Library Browser. It takes a few minutes to do thoroughly but will have to be done sooner or later with old plans. It is what it is.
