I'm new to Archicad so still trying to understand how to work with it.

If I have a plan and a section/ elevation/ 3D open together, is there a way for me to select an element in plan or section and then with it selected flick to one of the other view types and still see it selected there? Often I want to select something in section but then want to edit it in plan but I lose my selection as soon as I move from the section view to the plan view.

Hello aditi,

You say true, it is better to understand the functioning of a tool rather than to look in it for the functions of another tool : this will allow you to get the most out of your design software.

I think you should be interested in this essential function of Archicad :

By this way you are able to modify into a view and check it by another view.
