Hi, i'm quite new in archicad ( 2 years) so this may be a silly wish.
I always found archicad pen sets cryptic: description is shown when a color cell is selected and this makes difficult to understand the pen set logic.
I think it would be useful to have columns and rows description.
I know there is a recent post viewtopic.php?f=24&t=61689&p=284009&hil ... escription about pen set headers but it has no poll.

This would be fine if every pen in each row and every pen in each column had exactly the same use (description),
But that may not be the case.

With the individual description for each pen, any pen can be recommended for any use.

Although I do agree it is logical to set the uses by rows and columns, but it may not be practical.
There will always be exception needed.

I agree, but i think i'll prefer a general fast reading than a perfect coherence. Maybe a 20x13 matrix is not enough flexible for archicad 22 tools.
