Door & window schedules, & cross file selection sets

Hi some easy to implement ideas that could be HUGE for intermediate to power type users worldwide! To greatly assist with troubleshooting door schedules, can we please have some positive indicator of orientation ("R" or "L") that door will be listed ...

Graphical Improvements to lines

Lines which have square ends and the ability to show a line thickening left or right of the origin (see Informatix' MicroGDS method of doing this). At the moment we feel that this is ArchiCAD's biggest flaw. A much more presentable drawing could be p...

calculation menu overhaul needed

This could obviously be a mile long, but a start The simple - make the "set up list schemes" and "Link property objects" panels stretchable, like the rest of them. The important - Have a built in format you can actually manipulate, rather than having...

Specific view for linked elements : S/E & detail

Wouldn't it be useful if we could have a specific view for S/E and details that would work this way : If the view is linked, a switch in the display option would allow to : 1. Display everything as it has been until now in AC : live selectable elemen...
