    Hi Eric,

    These last few videos have had quite a few juicy nuggets of information. You never know when they may become necessary or even critical, but that at least a few will eventually is a certainty. I particularly like your explanation of creating a custom column.

    Thanks again for explaining everything so clearly.

    Dear Erric,
    I am using AC13,but the problem is , no Profiler in design menu. Please guide me how to download the same from net.

      Rajagopala –

      Inside ArchiCAD, go to the Help menu and select ArchiCAD Goodies (or it may be called ArchiCAD Downloads). On the web page that comes up, you will see a variety of free add-ons for your version of ArchiCAD.

      Download the one for Profiler for your platform (Mac or PC), and install it (following the directions in the ReadMe file) and you will see the command show up in your Design menu the next time you start up ArchiCAD.

        Dear Erric,
        I installed “Profiler” successively, start getting complex designs effectively.
        Thank you for good guidance.
