Hello, sorry if this question is repeated, I just jumped from win to mac, so I used to use shift+tab in win to put coordinates, when I'm making a line or wall. But in mac, i couldn't do it :( I have tried to find in settings something similar, but unfortunately unsuccesefully...

Thanks in advance....

Do you have "Tracker" turned on?

If so... tab cycles through the options.
Shift+tab cycles in reverse.

Yes, you probably don't have the tracker turned on.
I am assuming that MAC is the same as Windows in this case.
SHIFT constrains the angle and so long as the tracker is turned on, the first TAB will activate the expanded tracker and then subsequent TABs will cycle through the tracker.

A little bit different Barry:
Shift (held down) jumps to the nearest preset incremental angle.

Option + A locks the angle.

Sorry, I’m new in mac, when you say “tracker” you mean in mac or in archicad? And how I should turn it on?
Thanks

It may be in a menu somewhere as well but this is the toolbar button that turns it on or off.

That is what I meant by constrains the angle.

My tracker is on, the problem is, when I draw a line for example, with mouse I choose a direction, with shift I straight the line, when I press tab with holding shift, the tracker is not work, when I release shift and press tab, tracker is working.

I didn’t see like this problem in Windows
