I wanted to edit a detail marker that it was already created, but I think is better if I delete it and start again, or do you have any sugestion?

It is difficult to answer your question when you do tell us what specifically you trying to do?
Are you trying to change its size? move it? link to another detail?


Also include in your profile platform & version of Archicad you are using.

Hi Mario,
It sounds like you are trying to edit a linked marker as these items would be grayed out in this situation. You have a couple of options.
1. Right click on the selected detail and choose "SET AS SOURCE MARKER". This will allow you to make those changes. When done, right-clicking again on this same marker will allow you to turn it back into a linked marker by choosing 'SET AS LINKED MARKER'.
2. If you want to find the source marker, right click on the detail in your view map select 'FIND LINKED MARKERS' click on the first one listed, right click and click on the GO TO SELECTED' button. This will take you right there. Select it and then you can edit the ID and NAME.
3. To be tidy, you can right click on the detail in the Project Map and rename it to match.
