I want to create some wet area objects with additional hotspots for use on a slab penetration plan. I don't want to modify the standard Archicad library objects so I will to create a folder of renamed copies of the objects that I can then modify and add to an office library.
My concern is that I understand there are problems with saving objects as objects, and I don't want to create conflicts between my modified objects and the standard library parts. So a two-part question: why is it a problem to save an object as an object, and how should I save copies that I can modify without causing conflicts?
You can also go to location where your copy of Archicad is located, you will find there a folder named something like Archicad 25 library. This folder contains your standard Archicad library parts. You can simply copy this folder (to keep as backup) or the content you are interested in to another location. Here you can select the objects, rename them and then load into your project. This is handy if you plan on altering large numer of objects and dont feel like going trough opeoning and saving each of them idividually.
From Archicad 8.5 all the way to the present. Passionate Autocad hater as well. Wish to save palets and menus individualy in work enviroments: https://bit.ly/3pg3Bx7
This is the issue I have seen previously in old office libraries. I knew it was related to saving copies of objects but didn't know why that caused a problem and was therefore wasn't sure how to avoid it happening with this new project for the new library. Very helpful!
