OPEN LETTER TO.... (off-topic)

Romans

There is another open letter addressed to the main competition, but some important issues could/should be easily asked also to Graphisoft too.

It is another sign and proof that many architects worldwide (also renowned) are struggling with tools/software that is inadequate (functions, bugs, etc.) and of poor performance.

Architects / Designers rely/depend so much on these tools on daily basis, but the relation with developers and also the responsibility of the developers to the users are not reflecting the importance of this relationship.
Another culture is crucial and urgently needed!

I also think it is not about new and fancy features, half-baked and not relevant for most of the architectural user base (the product is still called Archicad).

It is mostly about making the current toolset work, nailing down bugs, and making the thing as robust as possible. And of course: PERFORMANCE!

This is the minimum to be expected. 

Then, of course, come the still missing features like INSTANCES (maybe from favorites) and much better direct 3D-file exchange (FBX, SKP, etc) - and no import as 'objects' anymore!

To Graphisoft: Regarding a real and specific 'Public Roadmap' it needs the open involvement of the users. Almost all software developers use open Trello boards with voting-function.

This would give us users a clear view of what is going on and also provide influence on several development projects.

Yes, top priority right now need to be triage based maintenance - make AC the best version of itself and start with the easy things. There need to be a substantial and continuous effort to go through the application looking for things that are upright broken and things that could be optimised, harmonized and consolidated. As @DGSketcher suggested the result of this effort should be delivered with short intervals - not bottled up to be marketed as a new feature in yearly releases.
