AC27 wishlist

Now that AC26 has almost arrived, perhaps we can already gather some wishes for AC27.
Again, wise to keep it short, and only name your top 3 with the highest priority.
Focus on what you want to contribute and don't react to what others submit worked well last time too.

So just to test the mood of current users, what are your top 3 wishes for AC26?

 

I know we all have more than 3 but try to focus on your priorities, ignore other posts and keep your answers short.

Mine are:

1. In-place Hotlink module editing e.g. a simple module, block, component. that can be edited in place and updates all copies.

2. Dimension fixes in 2D and 3D documents.

3. A common dialog for element storey settings that is the same in all 3D tools.  

Apple iMac macOS Monterey / AC26UKI (most recent builds)

1. Decent window builder

2. Schedule morph faces (area, orientation)

3. Clearer 2d look (thicker lines ending in sqares, not circles)

Communication with the users and community development, regardless of how much sales a geographical region generates

1. Clearing out of all the old bugs

2. Finishing staircase, railing, opening tools... and others that are 80% done (curtain wall scheduling, anyone?) These are just the newest in the line

3. Developing strong structural and MEP connections to de facto standard software, worldwide

Communication with the users and community development, regardless of how much sales a geographical region generates

  1. Unified Font Settings. I hate it when I have to change the pre-set font type for each and every possible element, view, marker, etc. to the one we want for our output. Yes, I know this should be pre-set in a template with the correct font, but this would save so much time for template building as well.
  2. Automatic dimension line/chain offset. If I want well structured and detailed dimensioning on drawings, I can't use automatic dimensioning. It doesn't work as good as it should for complex structures and doesn't work at all for detailing. For manual dimensioning there is just too many steps (and keyboard input) for placing a dimensioning line or chain to desired offset distance.
  3. Visual property manager, Grasshopper style. With dedicated rules, expressions, etc, for further output automation, schedules, lists, IFC mapping.

Archicad 4.55 - 25 | HP Z840 | 2× E5-2643 v4 | 64 GB RAM | Nvidia Quadro M5000 @ Windows 10 Pro x64

1. Software to be written to maximize the benefits of the Apple M1 MAX chip hardware. (This feature alone would inspire me to upgrade from version 22.)

2. Ability to organize layers into groups and sub-sets. (There has to be something more than just an alphabetical sorting and adding extensions...)

The other enhancements noted in this thread would be welcomed as well!

ArchiCAD since 8.0, currently on 22, waiting on 26, maybe...
