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.

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.

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.

“My firm was an early adopter of the forward thinking design software, ARCHICAD. We’ve been using ARCHICAD for over twenty five years now and have found it to be the most comprehensive architectural design software on the market. It’s a complete package - suitable to use from early conceptual design through BIM oriented construction documents and into building construction. I don’t know of another software package that handles all of these various design tasks with such seamless and efficient continuity."
