Viewmap model showing up in different window

Hi,

When I go to click on a layout in the View Map it goes into a separate window to Archicad, if I go to close the separate window it goes to shut the whole program down. Any ideas?

Thanks

There are no layouts in the view map so I assume you mean you are opening a view?
Can you post a screen shot of your entire screen, with the separate view open and show us the button you are clicking to close it.
You can blur the model if you don't want anyone seeing the details.

Hi Barry,

Sorry yes I meant opening a view in the ViewMap.
I've attached a screen shot of the window that opens when I click in a view.
I can't get rid of it. I'm not sure what I pressed to get the extra window.
The button I press to close it is just he red x in the left corner at the top.

Thanks

OK, that is your floor plan window which is why when you try to close it Archicad will ask you to save your project.

You have managed to un-maximise it and therefore it is no longer docked in the tab bar.
It will still have a tab in the tab bar but will open in a free-floating window.

Sorry I am not familiar with Mac controls, but in Windows I can just double click in the title bar of that window and it will maximize and return to the tab bar.
Or I can click the middle maximise button in the title which maybe equates to the yellow button on a Mac?

Unless, like me, you have a custom or old version Work Environment and that command isn't there.

I was looking as I was sure you can control the tabs from the menus.

I must have missed this command when I updated my WE.
I will have to add it.

I don't have that option even with the default Work Environment.

True that.

Could be Naomi's file was migrated from pre-AC19.
