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 ;-)

This time, rather than launch the Finder or Explorer, a pop up appears which will show the recently added locations:

"We use ARCHICAD exclusively in our office for all phases of design. We have developed a template over the last several years that saves us time on every project. We are also very pleased with the graphical output, using the software to produce project maps, construction documents, 3D details and photo real renderings that update automatically as the design evolves. Our clients are impressed with our ability to study various options on the fly using ARCHICAD."

"Having switched from Microstation to ARCHICAD I haven’t had the need to contact support but a few times. On those occasions, BIM6x resolved the issue before a call to support was even necessary."
