AC25 User Manual of the air

KeesW

I tried to access the on-line AC25 PDF User guide and got the following message:

"The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."

 

This is disastrous - 4040 pages of useful content completely inaccessible if one is looking for specific things. Perhaps its been taken off air to create a detailed word index and/or give it some page numbers!

OK, it was pointed out to me that the PDF file is not available. I also reported it to our engineers, we will try to fix it as soon as possible. Please use the above link in the mean time.

Thank you.

I was able to download and save it as a PDF from the link above. Thank you. I notice that you now have page numbers in the user guide, but still don't have a comprehensive word index that can relate to these page numbers. Yes, a lot of work to create this but most software manuals include such indices. Can I suggest that the money saved but not printing manuals for each sale of Archicad be spent on producing a comprehensive word or topic based index? Archicad used to have this.

Hi KeesW,

You can access the user guides on our help server, in case of Archicad 25, it's here: https://help.graphisoft.com/AC/25/INT/#t=_AC25_Help%2F001_ACHelpIntro%2F001_ACHelpIntro-1.htm

 

You can replace INT with other language codes if it is needed (e.g.: ITA - Italian, GER - German, HUN - Hungarian, etc.)

May I ask you to share the link with me which did not work for you?

Thank you,
Noémi

I agree about the index being a serious omission.

The lack of an index is absolutely mystifying to me... the Reference Guide has had an index for every version through AC 23.  For some reason, it was deleted for AC 24 and 25.  It was always a hyperlinked index with very meaningful organization and terms making it way more efficient than doing a word search of a 4,000 page document.  The index for AC 23's Reference Guide was 37 pages long.
