You may, or may not, have noticed the new Quick Options Bar in ARCHICAD 20:

"ARCHICAD has enabled Slichter Architects to expand our services while mainstreaming our workflow.

"Chris and Link provide tremendous customer service and technical support. We run a small office in a small city, so our training opportunities are largely limited to online videos and tutorials. Chris and Link provided personalized training on a recent visit to our office, which has helped us take the next step in productivity. Using ARCHICAD on MAC computers is a no-brainer for us - especially with BIM6x supporting us so thoroughly."
