AC19 Tab Layer Settings

I am getting use to the new tab interface in Archicad 19.

Switching from different tabs requires extra steps to restore the layers and renovation to the last opened view.

In order for it to be useful, the tabs must be able to store the last layer combination and renovation status. Do you agree?

Double clicking on the tab does not work for you?
If not then you can right click on the tab and select restore.

I have just installed AC19 and was very excited about the Tabs, But after 5 minutes i am shattered to find out that you can only have 1 floor plan tab open, I had high hopes that this was going to be a great feature but once again VERY DISAPPOINTED with the new version, the 1 thing that was going to make a difference to me and wham NOT IMPLEMENTED!!! bugger

This is because TABs do not change how Viewpoints work. They just offer a new way of arranging them in your application window.
A TAB is simply the given Window being pinned to the TAB bar instead of floating freely.
The Floor Plan Viewpoint and the 3D Viewpoint still have one Window each (all Stories in the same Window, both 3D Perspective and 3D Axonometry in the same Window). All other Viewpoint types, which are generated types, can have multiple Window instances (multiple Sections, Elevations, Details, Worksheets, 3D Documents, etc).

In summary, to be able to implement this the basic way of how ARCHICAD viewpoints and windows work would have to be changed.

That's the point, i thought it was going to be a revision of how archicad works not just a simple alternate way of viewing the same information. If they wont implement this properly then at least give us a dockable layer window!!!

Make a wish for multiple Floor Plan/3D Viewpoints.

For the dockable (and floating) Layer Settings Dialog there are already wishes:
