Thanks very much Stuart that will be very helpful. You seem to be way more helpful than that Dwight guy who only seems to want to sell his book on here.
I didn't answer Gareth's post yesterday because Stuart got here first. Of course, Stuart GOT that answer from page 136 of my book since I solved his optometrist shop lighting problem last year. ALong with dozens of other problems including the now-eradicated "Black soffit" and "Spotty stucco" diseases.
It has been nice to see how my book has improved lighting solutions since it arrived last fall. Readers and students of mine are now sharing those solutions as they make their way into Archicad illustrator minds.
So now we seem to have a Forum member expecting that I should jump right on it every time someone asks a question that draws on my private research and experimentation - to solve problems that Graphisoft hasn't, and write personal essays about it to them in private messages. And if I don't, I receive a dig, here.
In short, I'm supposed to give away what I know with illustrations for free and am resented when I suggest privately that a Forum member should buy my book - After he writes privately with the sucker's "just a short question" message. Of course, I remember how I felt when I wrote to our local totem pole expert with a question and she suggested thet I buy HER book: cheap and embarassed.
Shame on Forum members who are too cheap to buy this full color detailed book that answers most Archicad illustration dilemmas in ArchiCAD AND comes with a FREE supplement to ArchiCAD 10. I have written and published this project ENTIRELY at my own risk. So go figure.
