I have a big problem with the coordinate points in AC25. I have imported a big project from AC23 where I used the survey coordinate point object, and now in AC25 I can't see them at all. It's the only issue I noticed switching from AC23 to AC25.
It's really a big issue for me, as there were over 40 coordinate points on the projects, on 4 storeys, plus the project survey point.
Is there anything that can be done, I wish I don't have to manually add them again one by one, it's such a waste of time...
I don't even know what is the correspondent tool for this in AC25 and how to use it.
I have attached an image with how the points were placed in AC23 and the missing warning from AC25.
Thank you very much for your report and I am very sorry for the experience!
With your description, I could easily reproduce the issue. We couldn't come up with a solution, so I have entered a case into our system for further investigation. Once we have an answer, I will share it with you here!
Thank you very much for your understanding! I'll keep you posted!
Hi Barry, thank you. I have loaded all the libraries parts, but this object doesn't seem to exist in the migration libraries to load it. I have also tried to read it directly from the archive but it doesn't work.
I have received an answer from the developer. Unfortunately in Archicad 25, we handle only one Survey Point in a project.
We had been thinking on the possibility of multiple survey points, but we wanted to concentrate on using the survey point as a coordination tool for position matching (basically with IFC files from other engineering disciplines).
If these Survey Points are important in the project, we can make a copy of the Survey Point object into the Embedded Library in the original PLN file, replace the object instances to this copied library part.
In order to do it:
- Select a Survey Point on the floor plan
- Open the object by using the hotkey Ctrl + Shift + O (or File > Libraries and Objects > Open Object)
- Save the object into Embedded Library: File > Save As. Give it a special name and click save.
- Replace the Survey Points in the project using this new object from the Embedded Library
- This will help preserve the Survey Points when opened in AC25.
I hope this helps you with the issue. Please let us know if you have any further questions!
