How do i edit a cadimage wall covering favorite?

Anonymous

so i have saved my coverings as favorites while the covering tool is activated with a wall selected. which works great. however when i go into my favorites dialog box out side of the settings dialog box the favorite does not exsist. i can see the favorite only when i have the wall covering tool active, and only in the settings dialog. the issue im having is because the favorite only shows up in the favorites dialog when the tool is active. and the favorites dialog is the only place i can edit or delete the favorite. so if i want to make changes to a wall covering favorite its not possible. am i missing something? would this be an issue on archicads end or cadimage?

Cadimage Tools/etc are 'other products', so strictly the discussion doesn't belong under 'Working in ArchiCAD'... but it sounds like the issue you're talking about is primarily a Favorites thing. See the attached screenshot - click the triangle at the top right of the Favorites palette to get Favorites Preferences and perhaps uncheck the box to show only favorites for the current tool?

My apologies on the wrong placement, is there something i do to move it or does a moderator have to?

even when i uncheck "show favorites of active tool only" the wall covering favorite that i have circled does not show up in the favorites palette.

No problem. I think this is a Cadimage issue, but it may not really be - so let's leave the topic here for now.

Cadimage offers free, responsive technical support for their products. I suggest that you contact them, as it seems that they may treat the favorites for their add-on differently than standard favorites.

I don't use the Cadimage wall covering so this is just a guess.
I assume it is an object so you need to be looking in the object favourites (further down in your list) and not the wall favourites?
