Recently it came up from many of you that it would be nice to see the unread posts directly instead of browsing a huge amount of content. We are constantly working in the background to improve the Community and find what is helping all of us to access information and people the easiest way on Graphisoft Community.
Allow me to share some shortcuts in this post you can use until we can improve this area.

I usually like to list all unread posts on the whole site, but group them by thread:
For me, the biggest obstacle to using this forum is that the "Back" button on my browser returns me to the top of the sub-forum, rather than the page of the lists of posts I was just looking at. For example, I am looking at the Design Forum, and after six pages of threads I see a post that looks interesting. After reading and maybe even responding to this post, I click the "back" arrow and am taken to the top of the forum, where I now have to click through all the pages again. This is just too much work, and I've stopped participating much. I hope this can be corrected.
I've not run into that as I use the same method here as I did with the old archicad-talk: from whatever topic list I'm looking at, I cmd-click / ctrl-click the link to the topic I want to read to have it open in a new tab. I can close that and return to the first / search tab... or go down the rabbit hole as far as I want with more tabs.. Not what you want, but an option 🙂
I have also bookmarked this first post with the links (3 dots options next to post and then 'bookmark'), so I can go to my profile icon and see it in 'My Bookmarks' to find it again easily.
Do this for any post you might want to remember without having to search for it later.
I have actually bookmarked that first address in my actual browser (not the 3 dot options) and have that tabbed in my browser address bar.
So I can just open it at any time and it shows me only the posts I have not read yet.
Also like Karl, I open multiple web pages so I can go back to where I was before.
I open a forum and when I want to read a post I open that in a new web page.
When finished I close the post and then I have the original forum open still.
Clicking with the scroll-wheel of the mouse also works for me for opening links in a new TAB.
