Subject: [chief-users] basic chief
I'm new to Chief (10 full) and it really annoys me because it seems
to be an increadably unstreamlined program. I come from a CAD
background of MicroStation, AutoCAD and ArchiCAD. Here are just some
of the things that are driving me up the wall and make drafting very
slow compared to these other programs.
How can you move more than 1 wall at a time? The help file tells me
to use an edit area, but when I do that it doesn't select the whole
wall but chops the walls into bits. Even using an edit area, how can
I select different walls spead in different places in the plan
without selecting the whole plan?
In CAD mode, why, when I group select a heap of lines (dragging a
box), does the trim command dissapear? Yet when I select the same
lines individually, the trim command does not disapear.
On the subject of trimming, is there a way of undoing a single trim
without undoing all of the previous trims already completed in that
What is the go with some of the trims? I have at times specifically
moved lines away from the trimming line (50mm) and yet when I click
right on the one I want to trim, it doesn't trim that one but the
one I moved away that doesn't even intersect with the trimming line!
These are just a few of the annoying problems I've found with this
program and the obviously have a big impact on productivity. Oh one
more, does anyone else have problems with it crashing? It crashed 5
times in about 2 hours on a simple CAD mode drawing.

>Just curious, but what is the "Rake"?When you select a line to be used as a trim line, a small tool appears
that looks like a rake or a picket fence, take your pick. If you click
on that you can draw a line across a bunch of lines to be trimmed and it
will get them all, even multiple lines stacked on top of each other,
which happens frequently in section views.
