Unreserved Level Dimensions move when editing Slab

When you are editing the polygon of a reserved Slab in Teamwork and it has unreserved Level dimensions on it, these Dimensions might move along with the editing actions, regardless of not being reserved.


These Dimensions were most likely placed with the Gravitate to Slab toggle on, which makes it possible to place Level Dimensions on a surface that are in a live relationship with it. Therefore, when you modify the eg. the Slab height, these Dimensions will be updated automatically. However, if the dimensions are not reserved by the user, ArchiCAD will not be able to modify these dimensions.



The easiest way to avoid this situation is to reserve the Level Dimensions along with the Slab that needs to be edited.

However, it might be difficult to keep track of all the Dimensions, so you can set up a Registry Key to have an automatic, english Warning appear, each time you attempt to edit a Slab that has unreserved and gravitated Level Dimensions on it:


You can add a new DWORD type registy Key into the following location:

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GRAPHISOFT\ArchiCAD-64\ArchiCAD-64 15.0.0 INT R1\Teamwork


Set the Key value to 1 to enable the automatic Warning dialog.


Please note that from Hotfix 5 of ArchiCAD 15 due in February the warning message will be turned on by default.
