Archicad 28 global library sounds very promising


Reading the roadmap about what is coming soon, I hadn’t noticed that Archicad 28 will have a have a full global library to select parts from. 

This is a very good idea since I have read many posts where a library part that is available in one region is not in another. This will solve some problems for many users including me who doesn’t use GDL yet.


What do others think about this change ?

'Coming soon' means GS are actively working on it.

Sometimes they may arrive in the next update for the current version, and other times not until the next version.

Even then there is no absolute guarantee that it will be the next version, because if something unforeseen happens in testing, it may be held back - that is unlikely to happen though.

It is a pretty safe bet to say 'coming soon' will be in the next version.

I had that wish some time ago. Maybe that's the first step towards language independent archicad, which is a real pain now if you want to work across different (localisation) borders while using the archicad classification system, which every localisation version has in it's own translated version.
