Restructuring the Wishes Section

Dear ArchiCAD Talkers,
In the past almost one year you have been very active on the wishes forum and generated a huge amount of wishes. I would like to thank you for this and encourage you to keep up this great work!

Due to the large amount of wishes we think it's time to give a structure to this forum and so we will organize the wishes into the following sections:

- User Interface
Visual appeal, Interactions (Navigate, Select, Edit, Input), User Interface Components...
- Construction
Modeling (Wall, Door, Window, Roof, Stair...), Favorites...
- Annotation
Label, Text, Dimension, Markers...
- Drafting
Any 2D tool what you need for drafting.
- Documentation
Plan, Section, Elevation, Schedule, Layouting...
- Cooperation
TeamWork, CAD Manager Tools, XREFs, Hotlinks...
- Publishing
Plot Control, Publishing, Import-Export (DXF/DWG, PDF...), IFC…
- Open ArchiCAD
GDL language and objects, API, Add-ons, Script…
- General
Any other not ArchiCAD related questions.

Let me introduce you to Balazs Simonyi from the ArchiCAD Design Team who will be doing this work in the next couple of weeks. Balazs is a Product Designer and from now on he will also be responsible to overview and actively participate in the wishes section.

Best Regards,

I tried to reconstruct some of the polls before this post came up.
So by my mistake
the "you top 10 wishes for walls" poll did not move because i have already made a similar topic on the wish forum. I fyou could delete the new, and move the old one i would be very glad. Of course if this is possible..

Thx and sorry for any trouble.

Actually, Kostas, I think these "top 10 wishes" become hard to vote for and could be of little value to product design. I never vote in these polls because it is never clear what you are voting for ... so many different 'top 10' things are discussed.

Having one concept-per-wish, with a poll, is easy to discuss and vote for ... and of course the top 10 are the top 10 vote getters. I like keeping the wishes focused ... and feel it is more likely that a clear message will reach GS if we do so.

What do you think, Balazs?

I think that in the current format of wishes your are right.
There is no reason to sum things up.
I posted that to sum things up because wishes did become a haos.
But in the current state i must agree with you, until we are proven wrong !

Hi!

I think both of You are right! But it's easier to manage and focus on one wish per topic.
I was also thinking about separating this "top tens", and I did with favorites. If You guys help me to post one wish per topic, You make my life easier, because I'm going to move the most popular wishes to our wishlist database. Thanks!
And all of Your comments about the new separation of wishes are welcome!

I wonder if a database summary of the wishes could be published so we can see what has been requested already. That way less likely to get duplicates or misses. As mentioned many wishes are often discussed in the one thread making it hard to vote and maybe these need to be revisited.

Hi Balazs,

I just read a wish via the 'messages since last logged in' search, and was at first a little confused as was another user there because the names of the new wish forums do not convey the fact that they are wish forums ... we only know that from looking at the Index page.

So, a meta-wish is: perhaps each of the new "wish" forums could have " Wishes" appended to the name so that it is clear when searching/etc that it is indeed a wish and not discussion forum. So, instead of the forum being "Publishing" it would be: "Publishing Wishes". etc.

Otherwise, I like the new organization!

Hi!

Thanks Karl, good idea!
I will ask our forum programmer to rename it as soon as possible, or find an other solution somehow

Why not put the word "Wish" at the beginning of the category so visually it can be located in the form?
Thanks,

Dear Laci Neda, you have omitted
" - ARCHICAD INTERNAL ORGANIZATION WISHES" I think that it can be very interesting for users and for Graphisoft.

What about My wishes:

1. about Open-GL improvement
(http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=18457)

2. Wish To have ability to build and edit any 3D objects (from Archicads building elements, and something like profiler) in ANY VIEW or ANY SECTION
I wish to draw a hole in the wall ON FACADE window, I want to draw specific windows on the facades, and make them Library parts, later.
It must be ability of archicad itself,
not a PLUGIN, like (http://www.encina.co.uk/objective.html)

3. What about to eliminate Plotmaker's convertion of 2D windows to some
internal plotmaker 2D format. It takes too many time! I wish to have AutoCad's Like Models view through Paper Space portals.

4. Make Materials more Categorized, (Folders and Subfolders like objects in AC library), and make a Rendered spheres on each materials in materials list to make choice of it more intuitive.

5. The same is with HATCHES: Make HATCHES more Categorized, (Folders and Subfolders), and make a BIG VECTORIAL SAMPLES of each hatch in list to make choice of it more intuitive.

6. Wish to have ability to enlarge intellectual cursor, and have ability to finetune it, Load different shapes, like mouse cursor in WINDOWS.

7. BIG WHISH (for AC 19, or AC 34)
to change internal surface engine, from polygonal to NURBs.
(like in Rhino3D, Like in 3DMAX, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, ...)

========== GDL

8. wish to have ability to make GDL objects, with multitext string variables,
and quick ability to edit this text, like ID field, and multitext in Archicad Label Tool


and so on...
to be continued...

those all fall into another wish category. Why do we need a new category for them?
