I have spent forever trying to make a schedule that lists various finishes in my projects. Everything from paint colors to tile to clear sealed steel to walnut veneered wood paneling. It seems that the best way to do this is by scheduling surfaces. Of course, surfaces have no inherent properties apart from a texture image, hatch, and title.

I don't see why I can't add Manufacturer, Finish, Supplier, Notes, and other properties to individual surfaces. Please add this basic functionality to Archicad.

Could you instead work with building materials? They allow a few more properties to be added.

Surfaces are just another of Archicads poor children that have been neglected as they push on to have as many children as possible. If they spent a bit more time on some of their original children then some of the base functionality of Archicad would work so much better.
