This 16 minute segment on Library Management is the third part of week #4.
The Library Manager in ArchiCAD 14 and later versions looks similar to ArchiCAD 13, but it has a number of very useful enhancements. This segment demonstrates these new features of the Library Manager, which are especially useful when migrating a project with complex library usage.
As before, when the project is migrated, one can simply open it in the new version of ArchiCAD and continue to use the previous libraries. However, this gets a bit more complicated when moving more than one version (for example, from ArchiCAD 12 to 14). The new tools in the Library Manager will do automatic substitution of Migration and Subset Libraries when one requests the use of the new version 14 library.
In addition, there are some excellent options for inspecting which parts of an older library are actually in use, and a simple button for embedding only those parts which are used from a particular linked library into the Embedded library for the project.
