    G’day again!
    In my book, mature beats “old” any day. I’m a “mature” designer! It’s very easy to change your perspective . . .
    So on the location where your stairs start, you have a ceiling with opening cut through it for the stairs.
    On the location where your stairs end, you have a floor that is carpeted.
    In Settings you may want to lower the dimming percentage (I use 66% mostly) This makes it easier to get your bearings relating to the lower floor. You can change it back later if you so desire.
    In View Filter, select the “end” location, Display None, then select to display Floors only.
    Make sure the “end” location is current. Select your carpeted floor. Hold down the SHIFT key & roll your mouse wheel 1 click to check if there are any other floors on that location. Right-click & choose the Cut Opening option.
    Pick points as required. If scrolling indicated a second floor (maybe concrete slab or timber framed floor), you’ll have to repeat the cut opening option on it as well.
    Be aware that if you don’t get the opening(s) quite right, you can then drag the edges of the opening to where they need to be (to provide adequate head clearance, for instance) Hover over the edge in question, the MOVE icon will display, then just click and drag . . .

    G’day & Welcome Fritz!
    Your perspective just needs a slight adjustment – not an OLD brain but a MATURE one!
    You start writing your questions (New thread for each) & sure as eggs someone will provide an answer.
    btw, on the RHS of this “Community” page there are lots of resources for newbies as well as “old hands”

    For some reason when v15 offers me the 3 options for Add/Edit Segment for Surface 2 in a Custom Roof Shape (Straight, Gable or Circular) I can select Gable or Circular but neither is applied.

    Chimneys should be a piece of cake!
    draw a circle, convert to walls, then put a roof on (by perimeter) that has a flat section with overhang but then changes to a curved roof with starting pitch greater than the first section & ending pitch of ZERO . .
    Several openings near the top of the wall . . .
    Shall have to try it after the grandies leave later today . . .

    G’day Conrad!
    What country?
    I’m trying to figure the logo’s etched into the safety rail in your 3rd photo!
    Does the first say “It’s OK to lean on me”?

    Sometimes moving the wall break works

    Have you tried using 2x 36″ cabinets?

    No, the screens are in portrait mode – standing on end, long edge vertical.

    Oklahoma seems to be pretty popular with tornadoes so I had a quick browse.
    In Oklahoma, Table R602.3(1), item 6, Rafter or roof truss to plate . . .
    Does that mean no matter what the truss is spanning (20′, 40′ or even 60′) all that’s required to tie that truss down is 2x 3.5″ nails skewed in from 1 side and another 3.5″ nail skewed in from the other side?
    Would 24″ centres be typical truss spacing there?
    All our tie-down is governed by the area being held down (in square metres) multiplied by the uplift pressure in kPa
    Stratco has a design guide to help determine the relevant uplift pressure. All Aussie roofing manufacturers have similar guides.The type of fixing is also determined by the Joint Group rating of the top plate and truss timber (the weaker of the two)

    Currently using 17″ laptop (screen has emails, Excel, Hyne Design etc) with Envisioneer maximized on 28″ UHD screen
    Prior to this Metabox laptop – 2.5 years old now, I ran a desktop driving 19″ screen in portrait (with emails, Excel etc) with Envisioneer stretched across 2x 24″ HD screens both portrait. At one stage I even dragged the Catalogue (and Properties in Worksheet view) onto the 19″ . . . .iirc that made worksheets fit better & added a little more to the drawing area as well.

    Guess I’m showing my age because I detest the tabbed interface. I prefer to have most toolbars displayed so I can access just about any tool with a single click. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome obviously influences that choice!

    Are your 2x 24″ screens in portrait mode with desktop stretched across both?

    #2 does nothing for me & there’s something about #3 that I just can’t put my finger on . . .
