[COPIED FROM THE POSTING ON ARCHICAD-TALK 12/21/07 BY MICHAEL GRANT - http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?...

I purchased Eric's Master Template last week, and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking to maximize their productivity and advanced understanding of AC.

Personally, I'd find it a mouthful for a beginner, due to its complexity. But I've been on the program for a number of years now, and I got frustrated trying to develop my own streamlined template. I was only tapping 75% of AC's capabilities, and I was always curious how an expert user would set up their system. Also, I was getting burned out on the petty, redundant tasks, like setting up new Layout books and tampering with pens ad nauseum.

This template gives me a setup of all the expert "latest" tricks, a treasure collection including:

  • hot linked modules
  • consolidated layers and expanded layer combos
  • parameter transfer pickup from pre-set Visual Legends
  • naming conventions that streamline, according to project workflow, between Views, Layer Combos, Model Views
  • cloned folders

At first view, the template looked intimidating, requiring considerable dedicated studying of the systems and concepts. But if, like me, you're dedicated to mastering the software, this is an amazing educational tool.

Furthermore, the template is fully supported through Eric's live "talk" forum [THIS ONE], through which he answers questions and updates the web based User Manual, which continues to grow with detail.
