Edit height of a complex profile in 3d view.

Not applicable
IS it possible to edit the height of a complex profile in the 3d view like a normal wall, without editing it or adding a new element to make it cut with booleans?

Yes you can stretch the height with the pet palette just like a normal wall.

However you can’t make it shorter than the original profile.
You can only stretch higher.
So the profile has to be made as the shortest height you will require.

This has changed in version 22 as far as I can recall (I don’t have Archicad in front of me at the moment).
You can now stretch shorter as well.

Versions 6.5 to 25
Dell XPS- i7-6700 @ 3.4Ghz, 16GB ram, GeForce GTX 960 (2GB), Windows 10
Dell Precision 3510 - i7 6820HQ @ 2.70GHz, 16GB RAM, AMD FirePro W5130M, Windows 10

The one limitation is that as a complex profile you can only stretch one wall at a time. Profile stretch can only be applied per profile rather than across multiple profiles...
