ArchiCAD is too slow when working on complex architectural projects. The software updates anytime, and I have to wait up to 3 minutes for each update. Each change I make in the drawings corresponds to an update. Solving this issue may help Graphisoft find new clients in very competitive markets like Canada and USA for example.
Other important things are to make old tools like Morph, Curtain Wall, Column, Roof, etc. complete. There are too many incomplete tools in ArchiCAD, and this doesn't help during the architectural and urban design process.

8 GB of RAM and without SSD, for AC 24, that's not sufficient,
i'm running AC 24 on a NVME 2.0 , 32 GB of RAM and 6 GB graphics, without any problems,
heavy projects with structural elements imported from tekla ( heavy file )
the "hangup" by deactivating the "auto update" is that heaven forbid you are in a crunch and just go to publish the PDF set....and notice your views are NOT updated.....yer screwed.
Also...auto-update keeps everything current.
I don't know why there's even the ability to NOT auto-update.
silly in my opinion. you ALWAYS want your views...ALL your views...updated at all times.
If you are working with layouting stuff on multiple pages with a couple of facades on each, jumping between pages, moving text, etc its a big pain to have auto update on. But there should be a third option, "auto update on publish".

My "Best Practice" is to use the Drawing Manager to check the status of all Drawings and update them as necessary before publishing. That way it can be guaranteed that they will all display the latest state of the project, even if they are set to "Manual Update".

We are actually talking about the Auto-Rebuild of Tabs.
We are not talking about Auto-Update of Views placed on Layouts as Drawings.
Ok, I see...I get it. the "tabs" that you have open at the time of your work session. I get it. Still......don't have so many tabs "open"....just keep the floor plan tab, or ONE elevation tab or ONE 3d tab and that's it....why have 12 to 16 tabs open for "when" you need to jump into them.....dunno but I've always found that those 'tabs' that are at the top are a bit distracting. Sure..you may say they are convenient but they take up a lot of resource power from your machine.
