A new way to search for help in ArchiCAD

Search Results from the
ArchiCAD Help Centre
Almost a year has passed since I last wrote on this blog which is shameful.

I've been posting regularly to the ArchiCAD India Group on Facebook which has slowly grown to just over 150 members, but I really should post my likes and rants here as well.

Version 17 has been launched and, with it, a revamped website from Graphisoft.  One of the interesting things is the new Help Centre that searches not just official GS websites but, much like the search box on this site, others on the web as well. What I absolutely love about it is the way the results are displayed. See the screenshot on the left to get an idea.

I don't know for certain which sites "on the web" the search covers so if it fails to provide me an answer, I find myself falling back to my now-primitive-looking-but-still-effective solution.  I don't know if GS got the idea for such a search from here but I'd certainly like to think so!
