Hi all,

Recently started a new job and I have been setting up my workstation to suit my preferences. For some reason, I cannot work out how to display the window tabs in AC20. I pulled my WE from home and imported it onto the work PC, but they have still not appeared.

Any suggestions would be great, not a fan of constantly going back through the navigator to swap between windows / tabs.

It is actually not a WE setting.
Go to 'Window' menu and 'Show Tab Bar'.

It should be there.

I would say that you are using a custom Work Environment from an older version of Archicad that didn't have this command.

You can either add it into the menus yourself or load the default Standard Work Environment.
If you are using an old custom WE, you are probably missing a few other menus and toolbars as well.
