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

“Getting started with Archicad was much easier because BIM6x was there to make the purchase easy. They continually provide support anytime I need it. If I have a question, they respond quickly. They seem to actually care about my company and my needs.”

"As the complexity of our designs have increased, Archicad has proven to be the tool that allows us to work through our designs in 3D, then allows us to provide documents that demonstrate our design intent."
