One segment of the coaching call focused on how to transition Favorites from one version of ArchiCAD to a later version. I referred to an article that I wrote that was published in ArchiMAG magazine. Here is a PDF version of this article:

    Eric, I love the course and feel that it has helped me a lot. How do I access week 10 and beyond.

      Ralph –

      I’m very glad to hear your feedback about how much you’ve been helped by the course.

      At this point, only weeks 1 through 9 have been completed. I am currently working on finishing up the QuickStart Course, then will resume work on the Best Practices Course materials starting with week #10. I am aiming to complete all work on the course in time for our first anniversary in November.

      I apologize for how long things are taking, but this is a huge project and I keep chipping away at it…I promise you that the wait will be worth it!

      Eric
