Oh dear! Although I like the Cadimage tools and find them useful, the annual upgrade fee from one version of Archicad to the next is exhorbitant, since generally there is little if any functional improvement. I also have Objective and have never had to pay for an upgrade!

Karl, don't hold your breath, I have been looking for the AC17 version of objective and am pretty sure that there will be a significant cost annually to get it now, will probably have to do without it unless the cost is reasonable and not a hostage situation price >> 'all it takes is money'.
just did a little bit of investigation and it appears that to use objective via upgrade is so far still free, thanks cadimage, hope this lasts for a few years.
