I've had so many problems with ArchiCAD that I had to start writing everything down. Eventually I came up with the attached list of steps for solving ArchiCAD problems.

Great stuff, Jay!

Don't you want to post that on ArchiCADWiki ?

Thanks Jay! This will be very handy for cleaning up various temporary files -- the User's can do this themselves (without the need to "bother" me) and I don't have to worry about them deleting the wrong files -- thanks again -- LJY.

I also found this from Eric's website (for those of you (like myself) who have no idea how to set this up) -- LJY

Thanks- Very nice- On my wall here as well, Well Fridge.

I would like to add that I have had to reformat my computer twice now.
That could possibly be one of the most annoying things to have to do when you are working in this feild.

Based on the input I received from this thread, I updated the list. It is now called The 12-Step Program Of ArchiCAD Problem-Solving. I rearranged the order of some steps, and added a step (thanks Rob!)

Matthew, it is not so easy, I think I am ready to be admitted to the psychiatric ward already.

there would only be 6 or 7 though, right? you surely can't do all those complicated things like "reboot" and "reinstall" on mac 'toys' can you? "reformat" - huh? "reinitialise" - what's that, never heard of it . . !

You'd only need the last step wouldn't you?
