I recently upgraded to Archicad 25 AUS, and every time I try to edit the railing by clicking it, the whole software freezes. It is ok to draw railings using the railing tool, however once it is placed, it cannot be edited or deleted because Archicad will freeze.
Thank you for replying. It isn't really like that situation. But rather, whenever I select the railing, everything stops responding, I can't do anything further with Archicad. This issue is less severe with a brand new project, as I tested drawing a railing in a new project with nothing, and it takes sometime but eventually loads. However, once I add in some more elements, clicking the railing freezes everything.
Thanks, I think it has helped a little. I will try local support too thanks for the advice. I am using a laptop Windows 11, with Intel(R) UHD Graphics, 8-bit, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. Not sure if this is the reason to the problem.
I understand this is an old thread, but I have just had the same issue in AC26 solo.
I created a U-shaped 1.1m high railing using the 'cast iron post 26' for the railing balusters, innerposts and node posts. Each had 2no spindles, with top and bottom ends. Balusters spacing at 100mm. I was able to draw the railing fine, but as soon as I tried to select it (in 2D or 3D views) Archicad freezes. I have to ctrl-alt-del and end task.
Fortunatley I was able to open the auto backup. However, the railing is still there, and as before cannot be deleted if you try to select it with the arrow tool. The only way to delete was to isolate the layer and use a marque around the railing then press delete.
I was then able to create a similar railing with the 'Railing Post 26' and that works fine. See screenshot below.
I did try the solution detailed by Barry in this thread but it made no difference.
