I'm importing views from archicad into Plotmaker 3. Whenever I update my drawings, another archicad is opened and stays open. I don't see it on my screen but I see it through task masager. It seems to really bog down my system until I end archicad from task manager. I leave the pln file I'm importing open in archicad when I update. Could this be causing the problem? 8.0.0 r3 usa (6318)
Whenever PlotMaker updates drawings or imports them, PlotMaker will open Archicad in the background to access those Archicad files that the original is at. This is normal and you shouldn't have to close that background Archicad in task manager. I would imagine that you may be need add some more memory. You probably don't have enough, so as your computer uses swap files from your hard drive, it's bogging down your system.
