ARCHICAD 19 introduces the Tab Bar for multiple viewpoints. You’re already familiar with tabs from web browsers, so there’s nothing new to learn. By taking advantage of faster background processing, the Tab Bar allows speedier switching among Floor Plans, Sections, Elevations, and 3D windows.

Thanks to the Tab Bar, designers can access various project views almost instantly in an organized manner. Background processing support makes it possible to switch fast - no need to wait for rebuild times between views.
