Custom Door Leaf Options Empty

ETSaum

If I'm right, this isn't a new issue, but still a vexing one.

Seemingly at random, computers in the office will *forget* all of the Custom Door Leaf options. Screenshot is from my Windows laptop, but the same thing happens on Mac desktop.

 

I can *create* custom door leafs that then show up as options for other computers in the office, but my options remain empty. I created one again today as a test, and then checked on the Principal's Mac, and, lo and behold, there it was.

It's clearly a library issue, as the computers don't seem to be looking in the Embedded Library for door leaf options (there are 40+ of them). In each instance, a computer that initially showed the options later decided not to, and to register the door leaf options as empty.

 

What workaround / fixes have folks come across?

It being a .lcf should not matter as the writing to the Door Panel Collection is file specific and temporary.

Yes, I just tested and the macro does get updated even when it is in an .LCF

I just tested, and the 'Door_Panel_Collection.gsm' object inside the .LCF does get updated.

There doesn't seem to be any copy of it in the user folders.

 

@ETSaum , I am not sure why your 'Door_Panel_Collection.gsm'macro is not being updated.

It shouldn't be a read/write access problem as this is in the default library in the Archicad program folders.

And you would have had the correct write access to install the program.

 

Do you have other libraries loaded rather than just the default 26 library?
