Do you know how to select elements in ARCHICAD with the Direction Dependent Selection method?  This has been available for a number of versions and is a really useful option – but in the default installation, it is not activated, so you may not even be aware of it.

"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."
