ArchiCAD 19 Composites Issue

Anonymous
Not applicable
I have come across a glitch / issue with Composites.

If you open the composites tool panel and create a new composite, but then decide to cancel and come out of the composite window, you can't get it to re-open.

If you click ok, then it works fine, but if you cancel i cannot get the panel to come back up, not even if i go the long way through the top menu Options, Attributes, Composites, it still does to re-open, you get a non approving bong from the machine instead.

The only way i can get it to come back up is if i restart AC19.

We work on macs & i have tried this on 3 machines, it does the same on all.

I just tried this, am getting the same result. Looks like a bug.

My AC19 copy does the same, reporting it to Graphisoft as a bug.

It always surprises me on a new release how many things get broken that were OK in the previous version. If the bug is in a new feature it is somewhat understandable but it seems that often they are in things that were functioning just fine for several versions.

Colour me curious.

I think this is just a fact of life with software development.
These applications are so complex that sometimes a change causes some unexpected effect somewhere else in the software one would not expect.
I don't think this is an ARCHICAD-only phenomenon.

I remember many years ago when a new Windows version came out (XP or Vista or something like that), it was said in newspapers that Microsoft knew about 64000 know bugs in it at the launch.
Not trying to belittle these bugs or issues, but CAD/BIM software applications are just very complex pieces of stuff with millions of lines of code.
