Breaking an elevation from its live link to the model

Wal
Participant

Hello everyone, greetings. Please I'm fairly new to using Archicad. I wish to find out how views such as elevations and sections can be detached from the live link model, so that I can draft over it to my desire using lines, fills e.t.c. thanks

You can select the elevation or section line and set the method to be 'Drawing' instead of Manual or Auto-Rebuild. This will create a 2D line version of the section or elevation. You can then trace and reference the 'Own Model Section' in to the view so you can manipulate the 2D data or trace over the live model in the background. This kind of goes against what Archicad is all about though.
