Access Settings from Quick Options

Ken

The Quick Options palette that has been part of ARCHICAD since version 10 was redesigned in ARCHICAD 19… but not that you would notice as it looks virtually identical.  However – it now includes a fantastic set of shortcuts that make life a lot easier.

If, for example, you are working on a project and want to go to Model View Options – before ARCHICAD 19 you would have to go to Document> Set Model view> Model view Options…  

Now in ARCHICAD 19, all you need to do is click the appropriate shortcut button to the left of each category:

In the screenshot above, the shortcuts have been highlighted and Model View Options used as an example.

From Quick Options shortcuts you can easily access:

  • Layer Settings

  • Scale

  • Partial Structure Display

  • Pens and Colors

  • Model View Options

  • Renovation Filter Options

  • Dimension Standards

"We have been using ARCHICAD at BMA LLC for over 15 years and have been super satisfied with the software! The integration of Architecture and Engineering into a complete BIM model helps us from the creative prelims through the Construction Documents combining with all the disciplines. We seem to be modeling more and more and that has helped us with the overall design, details and documentation. The power of ARCHICAD is the seamless process of Design Development, Client Interaction, Documenting Working Drawings, and Construction Understanding and Visualization - the complete package!"
