Archicad

After 20+ years of Powercadd, we've moved our office to Archicad after the 64 byte upgrade. It's fairly pricy, though has excellent teamwork capabilities, so numerous people can work on the same project from a shared in house server.

Needle Tool Help

I have a condition where my WT Needle tool will sometimes suck up a fill and apply the fill to another object, and sometimes it will not. It does seem to be able to always copy line weight and dash pattern.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

For what it's worth, the Attributes box allows you to add transparency to objects filled with a gradient.
