"I remember a while back you spoke about placing your downloaded lwa files in a folder you created, how do you get it do load in archicad (as an active library???)

because I put my lwa files in that folder that everyone recommends but I'm not sure the materials are actually added, and I'm not sure if I'm replacing existing materials with new ones, which I don't want to do. "

1: The archives can be referenced in making new material qualities - no interference with existing unless you mess up. Make duplicates before editing materials - always! Learned me the hard way, boyo.
