Uniform Settings for Line Tools

Ken

How many times have you set up and drawn a bunch of Lines then switched to the Arc / Circle Tool only to find it draws with completely different properties?  I know this has caught me out hundreds, if not thousands, of times over the past 20 years!!  With the following ArchiHACK you need worry no more!  

 

If you open the Line, Arc / Circle, Polyline or Spline Tool you will see an option called Uniform Settings for Line Tools at the top of the dialog:

 

 

 

Once you activate this (in any of the Linear Tools) all the Settings in the other Linear Tools will be set the same.  This means you can set a Line with whatever line types, colors, layers etc and the other Tools will match!

"I attended a multi day training session with Chris and Link of BIM6x. Their knowledge of Archicad, organization and accessibility during the course were exceptional. I left the class feeling more confident using Archicad, with many useful techniques to save time and produce better drawings and models. It was extremely helpful to work with instructors that know the software inside and out and who were able to share their knowledge in a clear and enjoyable way."
