Command X or delete to go back to the default.

I have tried this but have not had success. Does it matter what format the image file is in?

Hi Mike,

It works pretty much like it always has on a Mac. After you select the program and hit command "I" then select the icon for the program in the "Get Info" window, then command "V" to paste in the new image.

The most common error I see is folks don't select the icon image in the window that comes up.

Thanks Erich. I was trying to select the icon in the preview portion of the get info window and apparently you need to "select it" in the header of the get info window.

Here's a Mac friendly 128x128 pixel tiff I just made.

Also note that you can change the application name that appears in the dock by simply changing the name of the application in the Finder. Changing the name in the menu bar is slightly more complicated. You need to edit the info.plist file within the application package. Go find the free Pref Setter utility and use it to change the CFBundle Name key. (Save a copy of the unaltered app first.) I now have everything named ArchiCAD 11.
Had to zip this since the forum doesn't like tiffs.

It's also on the Trace & Reference Palette.

Transparent Fills & Zones works only when Trace is activated.
Another simple but useful one - new User Interface for Door Dimension Marker.

In Drawing Manger.... the Primary and Secondary sorting order indicators have been improved. You can see them now :shock: and they indicate ascending or descending order (which don't have to match).

That's correct Rich. Something that really annoyed the hell. :evil:
After placement you then have to edit!!
Get 11 it is fixed, and allows you to place segmented sect/elev markers directly. :D :D

The measurement tool now shows the cumulative length and area if you keep clicking as well as the individual segment lengths.
