I'm having one problem....

I want to make same lists but everytime i finish my work and save file, i loose everything i have done...

Drawing is there but lists, components, descriptions, properties, links to criteria are lost...

I tryed save, save as but nothing works...

how do you save your lists, components, descriptions, properties, links to criteria with archicad file ??? Do you have similar problem ?

I have attached pic....Before and after

somehow archicad can't overwrite existing database...

I saved my project database (master gdl, comp,crit,desc,key,unit)
to embedded library, can that be problem ???

Do i have to run archicad as admin ?

Archicad 17, 64 bits, build 4005

SURE

....when i saved library from embedded to my hard disk and then i linked it to archicad libraries it start to work as it suppose...updating changes

Something fishy is goin' on with archicad calculations....


I hope GS team will refresh this long forgotten part of archicad

Everything about the database/Calculation engine (vs element/component schedules) is pretty much the same as it was in the year 2000, so I'm not completely surprised that it doesn't recognize putting the database in the embedded library.

Until you posted your observation, I was going to guess it was a permissions problem.

Thanks for finding the workaround which will help others who might run into the same thing.
