dear all,

i am sure we are not the only one who struggle following which AC version you are currently working in, particularly since the default AC logo has remained unchanged for quite some time...

... and so we decided to create our own and make it available for everyone - actually since we are trained architects like most of you, we made a few options...

1. column: transparent white outline
2. column: white
3. column: transparent

please download the respective versions from the following posts.

enjoy,

ds.

schagemann, could you repost the AC13.zip file?
I thought you accidentally posted the same message 4 times and deleted one of them.
Only then did I notice that they are not identical posts but there was no way back.

As one AC-Talk user sometimes says: Someday, I'll get there.

Schagemann,

What a nice set of icons and instructions. I did the same thing on my own but instead of a big number over the existing icon, I just changed the color cast for the icon. I find that is quicker to pick out on my screen.

another version and although this time they have changed the logo, at least on the mac the version number is still not displayed... thus:

How do you get past the "ArchiCAD.app" level? I can't seem to do anything except open ArchiCAD.

you need to right click on 'ArchiCAD.app' - if on a mac and right click is not setup ('system preferences > mouse') you can alternatively control-click, then select 'Show Package Contents'.

hope this helps.

Thanks ds. That got me in and allowed me to replace the file...but after a re-start, the old icons still show up. I must still be doing something wrong.

BTW, thanks for sharing your hard work with the world. Good karma.
