I'd like to use gradient color fills in ArchiCAD 2D projects without using Adobe Illustrator application. MiniCAD (VectorWorks) can do that for 10 years and now also AutoCAD can use gradient 2D solid. I miss this function very much.

Palettes Wishes

1. Magnetic Palettes. Palettes should 'snap' when they get close (to eachother, the screen edge, the drawing window, etc.) Adobe is the king of making Floating Palettes work. 2. Autohide for the Navigator Palette (and Preview). Similar to the Dock in...
