Hey Archicad, there are a few posts here about time drainage due to "Auto Update" drawing in layout. The manual update is a nice option but often one forgets to put it back to auto update.
Could the simple solution be a button to "Pause all auto updates" as a global override. This would make it possible to go into a kind of "layout mode" when you are just moving things around and don't need all the drawings updating constantly. This should of course not affect the updating of the drawings when publishing but only the preview in the layout - just like manual update works.
This would save precious minutes when working on big files.
There is a warning and in 23 it will constantly warn you about outdated drawings even if the last operation you did was updating the Layouts. Anyway I kind of like this idea of a global "don't bug me, I am doing layout stuff for the next x amount of time".
Please vote on your wishes.

@Lingwisyer, "manual update" views always update when I publish, so no fundamental problem there.
My request has more to do with time spent waiting for views to update constantly when in "layout mode".
Indesign has this feature as a global override (as well as object based) and it's quite useful. In Archicad this would not not just be useful, but essential as our drawings are getting quite heavy especially with visible hotlinked IFC's from other disciplines - which is so nice to have when visualizing interior schemes.
Thank you very much for sharing your wish, and for those of you who voted to express their opinion!
I am happy to say we took notice of this wish and I have added it into our WishList database (please refer to it as Wish #12716). Hopefully, our Product Management team will adopt this one in the future.
Thank you all once more, and I wish you a great day!
