Hide all SAF definitions on Work Environment profile

Vinicius Lima

That will be very befitting (according to others software definition like this, such as MEP items), if we could in "Work Environment" hide all SAF definitions/tabs. It's annoying as an architect open a slab tool definitons window (for exemple), and find an useless SAF tab open for nothing.

Hi Vinicius, 

You are definitely able to modify what gets displayed in the Tool Setting Dialog boxes. Please see the screen shot below as an example of how to hide completely the SAF settings fields. Once you do this for all of the tools, you can then save it as a custom set for you own Work Environment Profile. Wish wise, I do agree that it would be a nice feature to have this done with one of the out-of-the-box template Work Environments, and maybe with some additional attention from our users, this will gain traction with the Template development teams.

I agree that it would be be nice with a better way to customize tool settings dialog boxes and the info box. Having to customize each tool one by one is tedious.


For visibility. A list with all panel sections where you can select multiple items to edit their visibility in different tools, akin to layers management. 


For placement. A ordered list where you can specify the placement from top to bottom for each item coupled with the ability to override for individual tools.

Hello Duncan, I'm aware of this option, thank you for that anyway. But is exactly task such as this one, that make migration between AC versions so hard. As all new features/tools/commands of AC comes in the menu and dialog boxes, all users that have their own personalized profile, must re-do profile from zero. Otherwise as you know, if you apply an previous profile your are automatically "giving up" of the new features.
