Coaching Call – Jan. 20, 2011

This special coaching call on January 20, 2011 was offered as a free bonus to all members of the Best Practices Course who posted a comment on the website. The call ran for one hour 10 minutes, while the video is about 3 minutes shorter because of a technical difficulty around 20:50 into the recording.

      Ignacio –
      At this point, the Coaching Call videos are only downloadable from each individual page. I will have my assistant compile them into one page for ease of downloading at some point – I apologize that we haven’t done this already.

    This is a really good video – every bit of it covered information useful to me. The only thing was the quality of the recording was a bit and it was difficult at times to make out what was said.

    Is there a glossary of AC definitions like “Projected with Overhead”? I play around with settings like this sometimes successfully and sometimes with frustration.
    Also, the descriptive language from Hungary or Europe to us in other parts of the world are different and/or the spelling and terms are incorrect as we know them professionally. A list of terms as AC intends them would be helpful.

      Jim –

      I don’t know of anywhere there is a collected glossary of terms. However, I’m sure that if you do a search in the ArchiCAD Reference Manual (available from the Help menu) or the ArchiCAD Help itself, you will find a concise explanation of Projected with Overhead as well as other terms used in popup menus or settings.

      I’d be happy to start putting together a list of terms that are spelled incorrectly or referred to differently than in standard professional usage. Perhaps you could send me (or post on the site in a comment) some of these terms that appear incorrect or out of place.
