Speeding Up Your Performance for ARCHICAD 21

Link

Are you experiencing some slowness in ARCHICAD 21? Especially with MacOs High Sierra? Here's a tip to increase your performance. It's a little drastic but it works.

 

Customize your TV screens and monitors

...and lots of other things too!  

Rather than use the same old GRAPHISOFT images on some of the Objects - use your own personal photographs or graphics.  This applies to the following ranges of ARCHICAD 20 Library parts:

Time to Check for Updates...

Ken

It has been some time since ARCHICAD 20 was released - and like previous versions, from time to time, GRAPHISOFT release updates.  These updates perform maintenance on your installation and apply fixes for issues. 

Updates are particuraly important right now as Apple has recently released their new Operating System macOS 10.12 Sierra

To Check for Updates - launch ARCHICAD and go to Help > Check for Updates...

Add Libraries to a Project the quick way

Ken

When you are working between projects you often find the need to add additional Libraries.  It is prety frustrating having to navigate through the same repetitive folders trying to find that special Library… usually the one you keep meaning to move to a more sensible location ;-)

If you open the Library Manager you can add more Libraries using the regular Add… button which will take you to the Finder or Explorer to locate your Library.

Command and Control ARCHICAD - The Box Set

Ken

Over the past four weeks we have been running a series of #justthetip articles showing how to Command and Control ARCHICAD.  These have shown four of the main keys that can be used to tame ARCHICAD and increase your productivity.  They include:

Command and Control ARCHICAD - Part 4

Ken

This is the final article in a series of four #justthetip articles showing you how to master the primary keys you need to Command and Control ARCHICAD.  The key we will examine today is not one that is traditionally thought of as a shortcut key at all… the Spacebar.

The Spacebar has two types of function - the Magic Wand and as a toggle to invert a command.

Command and Control ARCHICAD - Part 3

Ken

This is the third of a series of four #justthetip articles showing you how to master the primary keys you need to Command and Control ARCHICAD… in this article we will take a look at the Alt key and what it does in ARCHICAD.

The Alt key can be shown with a variety of symbols… alt, Alt, ALT or even Options on some older Apple keyboards!  The bottom line is they all mean the same thing!

Command and Control ARCHICAD - Part 2

Ken

This is the second of a series of four #justthetip articles showing you how to master the primary keys you need to Command and Control ARCHICAD… in this article we will take a look at the SHIFT key and what it can do for you!

Shift is one of those multi-function keys in ARCHICAD that performs a number of important tasks allowing you to select, deselect, constrain or act as a shortcut modifier.  In addition, the Shift key works identically on both Mac OS or Windows.

“The decision to adopt ARCHICAD as our company’s only BIM modeling platform was the best decision I ever made! Not only do we produce professional three-dimensional details and artistic construction documents, we are able to quickly update the drawings anytime a revision occurs. Graphisoft provides best-in-class support and has been very responsive to our needs.”
