A new Snap Point has been introduced that will measure the total length of an element and then give the Best Division by Distance. Effectively, what this means is if you have a line that is 950mm long and you want to divide it to approximately 250mm, it will show 3 snaps at 238mm spacing. Clearly this
If you find you are having trouble selecting and/or drawing in ArchiCAD and you have a little dot following your cursor around (like in this image), then you have inadvertently turned on your grid snapping. You can turn if off but hitting the Grid Snap icon in the toolbar or go to View > Grid
To set the incremental angle of your Guide Lines, go to Options > Work Environment > Guide Lines and set the desired angle. If your project has no angled walls, you can set this to 90 so ArchiCAD automatically snaps to only horizontal and vertical.
If you want to change the ‘Special Snap Points’ color, go to Options> Work Environment> On- screen Options
You can toggle Grid Snaps using the ‘S‘ key on your Keyboard (Alt-S for NZ Users). Alternatively Hit the Grid Snap Icon in the Toolbar. NOTE: This feature can be accidentially turned ON when saving if you miss hitting the Ctrl or Option key and just hit ‘S‘.
When using Special Snaps to place objects, Along Entire Element uses the overall length of the element and Between Intersection Points recognises any other elements including lines that intersect the element to determine its length.
