palette-based addon refresh

Hi,

 

Working on a palette-based addon requires reloading the project every time I have to load / unload the addon, upon re-building the .apx after some changes. This is a time-consuming process everytime I need to test a change (which happens frequently).

 

How do you guys go about this? Is there a way to check the effect of a change in an .apx without unloading/re-loading it in Archicad?

 

Thanks.

If you have a palette based addon, than your addon should be preloaded. It means that it is kept in memory all the time to handle the palette properly.

 

Unfortunately it means that you have to unload/reload the addon to see the new version. Personally I prefer to restart Archicad, because in this case the addon will be reloaded automatically, and it needs fewer clicks.

Thanks for sharing that tip Viktor.
