Workspace schemes

Leo Mic
Participant

In Work environment\Workspace schemes\Command layout schemes\Toolbars, when you create new custom toolbars there is no possibility to export those toolbars to use them on new Archicad releases. So every time there is a new release you have to create them from scratch. If you apply a previously saved Workspace schemes template then all menus do not include the new release menu additions. An export custom toolbar possibility has to be added. Capture.JPG

I posted a workaround for this a while back:

This is really infuriating and has been for years. I have added this to a wish list previously and suggested that if you import your work environment to a newer Archicad version any new menu commands should by default display as on and not hidden as they do currently.

I have posted a wish for this some time back.  Lazlo, to his credit, pointed out the exactly same workaround. But I am sorry, we pay 1000s of USD to Graphisoft yearly and in return all of us who put a time into coustomizing our workspace have to flaff around to make it work. Our time is precious, we buy this software to work, not to dick around with settings and xml editors every time new version comes around! Meanwhile the fix would be so simple - just let users save toolbars settng independently of menus setting. How much programmer time is that? 2 hours?  (link to the original wish is in my description)

From Archicad 8.5 all the way to the present.
Passionate Autocad hater as well.
Wish to save palets and menus individualy in work enviroments:
