ArchiCAD 17 - new feature: One-Step Renovation Status Update for All Elements

Date: Thursday, June 13, 2013

AC17_BOX_CAM1 When a renovation project is finished, you will need to update all elements’ renovation status: for example, those that were “To be Demolished” can now be deleted; those that were “New” are now “Existing.”

In earlier versions, this process required several rounds of Find & Select, and 2D elements, such as annotations, had to be updated viewpoint by viewpoint. Now you can do all this with a one-step workflow that is intelligently and flexibly applied to all elements in all views, including your annotations. The Reset Renovation Status command (Document > Renovation menu) lets you globally update (or delete) elements by status, or leave them unchanged – speeding up your Renovation workflow, leaving no element forgotten.
