Hi!

I'm working on a project template for AC20.
And i'm noticing some differences to AC 19.

I have created some favorites like doors, walls etc.
For example:
I have a door on favorites, with measurements 910x2100, ID D9a.
When i have that door selected and placing it, it automatically changes the ID.
the first one is D9a, the next D0a, D1a etc etc.
Is there someway to stop archicad from automatically updating the element ID?

And.. can you somehow choose which folder is shown (and lock it) when you click och the favorites arrow?

The 'quick favorites' thing in the toolbox remembers the last chosen folder, as far as I can tell.

Sweet!
The element ID thing works, Thanks!

Yeah, it remembers the last folder..
But when i launch the project on teamwork it resets the folders.
I would like the folders to stay like the template file, for all the other people joining the project aswell.. :D
