This 16 minute video covers typical problems and challenges you may encounter as you start working in ArchiCAD and try to follow a training demonstration. The screen configuration of palettes may be different than what I’m showing, so I go over both the manual resizing and placement of palettes and windows, as well as how to set the Options menu > Work Environment > Palette Schemes (and also Work Environment Profiles) to default or standard configurations.
I also cover typical issues that come up when the Edit menu > Grouping > Autogroup command is turned on, which will (when it’s activated) automatically group elements that are drawn using certain commands such as Polywall or Rectangle Walls. The use of the Suspend Groups button in the Toolbar or the Edit menu > Grouping > Suspend Groups command will allow you to select and modify individual elements of a group.
Additional tips are included for the use of the Escape key, right-clicking and Control-clicking (when you don’t have a multi-button mouse) to get the context menu, and the use of the Shift key for selection.
