Upgrading or migrating UK Essential Library

Nik

Hi everyone. We currently use the UK Essential Library 21 in our template, mainly for electrical symbols, scale bars and brick coursing.

 

I'm in the process of updating our template and would like to upgrade/migrate to the UK Essential Library 25. Is there a painless way to do this or do I need to go through each favourite and placed instance and manually change them, including all the settings?

 

Cheers, Nik

Looks like I can delete the 21 library and simply replace it with the 25 library. Archicad still finds the right objects. Wanted to check if this is the right way to do it, or if there is a more robust method.

I just normally delete and replace the library with the latest version. The 25 version also now had the objects that were developed by Applecore and they do cause a conflict if you already had the Applecore objects loaded in.

Deleting the v21 library and replacing it with the v25 library worked for most things, but not the scale bars. I had to set these up again, but it didn't take too long.

Still looking?
