It has been some time since ARCHICAD 20 was released - and like previous versions, from time to time, GRAPHISOFT release updates.  These updates perform maintenance on your installation and apply fixes for issues. 

Updates are particuraly important right now as Apple have recently released their new Operating System macOS 10.12 Sierra

To Check for Updates - launch ARCHICAD and go to Help> Check for Updates...

This is the final article in a series of four #justthetip articles showing you how to master the primary keys you need to Command and Control ARCHICAD.  The key we will examine today is not one that is traditionally thought of as a shortcut key at all… the Spacebar.

The Spacebar has two types of function - the Magic Wand and as a toggle to invert a command.

This is the third of a series of four #justthetip articles showing you how to master the primary keys you need to Command and Control ARCHICAD… in this article we will take a look at the Alt key and what it does in ARCHICAD.

The Alt key can be shown with a variety of symbols… alt, Alt, ALT or even Options on some older Apple keyboards!  The bottom line is they all mean the same thing!

"Chris and Link have been an invaluable asset for my company. While ArchiCAD itself is an amazing tool, it's the support I get from BIM6x that brings it to life. I've managed a competitive edge over other firms because the guys have helped me automate a great deal of my production work and utilize the power of the software to all but eliminate errors and omissions. They're very accessible and their knowledge of the industry and software makes them indispensable to any firm that wants to utilize ArchiCAD to produce high quality projects with efficiency and accuracy. I absolutely recommend them; it's not a choice, they're essential."

"Chris and Link provide tremendous customer service and technical support. We run a small office in a small city, so our training opportunities are largely limited to online videos and tutorials. Chris and Link provided personalized training on a recent visit to our office, which has helped us take the next step in productivity. Using ArchiCAD on MAC computers is a no-brainer for us - especially with BIM6x supporting us so thoroughly."
