Fixed element ID?

Anonymous

How to make element ID's, specifically Windows and Doors to be fixed number? I'm trying to create a catalogue of windows that correspond to real products and each window has unique product number, which I want to assign as ID within Archicad. The problem is that ID number automatically changes +1 for every new copy of the same window I create and I want to avoid that. Please help?

You can also use the Document > Listing Extras > Element ID Manager to modify IDs of elements, for example, assign the same ID to all elements meeting the same Criteria.
