Converting AC26 Intel files to Apple Silicon?


I have had my new MacBook pro since mid-February, but just learned today when I went to update that I should have been using the Apple Silicon version of AC26....So I have downloaded that, did the most recent update, but when I open any of my files, none of the windows and doors are showing up.  I get the little circle that means it's missing.  Do I need to do some kind of conversion process?  This is less than ideal.  Even opening old versions, the program just automatically updated libraries.


Sounds like you just need to reset the library path to the new ArchiCAD 26 ARM folder's library. No need for "file" conversion.

I found out that I had mistakenly downloaded the International version of AC26, so downloading the correct US version did the trick. Thank you.
