Decimals and Digit Grouping

Ever wanted to change how the numbers appear in Archicad, but could not find the settings in the Dimension Preferences? By default all numbers are showing commas for digit grouping and full stops for decimals.

This can be very easily changed in the system settings of your OS as Archicad uses the global settings.

 

On Windows

Open the Control Panel/Region and Language.

Using both systems, the settings will only be activated after you restart Archicad.
