Can we please have much, much, MUCH faster display of raster images dropped in to plans.
Images are often needed as backdrops for tracing in non-cad data (old Architectural drawings etc)
A high resolution tiff positivity cripples ArchiCAD performance in a way that does not apply to same image dropped in to other applications. Not only panning & zooming are slow, but every editing operation is acutely painful even when no navigation involved. (a pause of around 6 seconds after every mouse click on fast machine is normal)
Raster images after all do not need to interact with CAD 3D database, so should not cause such a huge performance hit
Can we also have an image de-skew option - typically when an image is scanned in and rotated for tracing purposes, it become & Reference tools slightly skewed - so there needs to be a method of correcting. Amount of de-skewing needed could be determined by tracing lines along known square edges of raster object
Can we also have images visible via the Trace & Reference Tool - images are usually placed in plan for tracing purposes anyway, and toggling display this way would simplify management of slowdown issue while image not being used
