Save-Layer-Settings Add-On



I made an Add-On for Archicad to store layer settings in existing Layer Combinations (without the need to open the layer dialog and redefine the layer combination manually).


You can download the free version and watch a video which demonstrates the functionality on my website:


Or watch the video on YouTube:


The paid version includes the following additional features:

  • A menu item to save into the last used layer combination "Document -> Layers -> Layer Extras -> Save to Last Used Layer Combination".
    • For this menu item you can define a Hotkey to quickly store the current layer settings in the last used layer combination.
  • A palette instead of a modal dialog.
    • The last used layer combination is tracked in the palette.
    • Change the layer combination with a double click in the palette.
    • Save the current layer settings into a new layer combination.

The additional functionality costs 25 EUR per seat in your Archicad license. It is a lifetime license for AC24&AC25. This is a promotion available for a few weeks. After that it will cost 50 EUR per seat.

Please check the website for my mail to contact me if you are interested in purchasing a license.

@bschwb , good feature but I think we need also a special part in the community for tools Adv. to be able to review the tool and to track it’s update, maybe a commercial section.

@Mahmoud QenawiI agree that a special place in the community would be good 🙂 Until then I'll try to post it in the most relevant board.
