Find those elements, wherever they are!

This has to be one of the simplest and easiest commands in ARCHICAD - but one that is often overlooked… yet it is one of my personal favorites!

 

Often when you select something using Find & Select or even Select All Walls, for example, it is difficult to know that you have the correct elements selected.  Well, with the help of this command, you can zoom directly to that selection and confirm it is what you think it is!  This is very useful, particularly in a busy model.

 

To use the command, select your elements then right click the mouse and choose Zoom to Selection as shown below:

 

 

Alternatively, you can find this command in View> Zoom> Zoom to Selection
