Create Patch Object

With the Document > Annotation > Create Patch command, you can save the area enclosed by the 2D Marquee as a parametric 2D Library element. You can later use this to “sticker” your plans in order to provide the necessary detail in Floor Plan and Section views while saving time on modeling.
Use Document > Annotation > Create Patch.
Note: The Place Patch Now option is checked by default; the new patch object is placed automatically.
Note: Objects created this way will be enhanced with parametric behavior, specified by a special template in the ARCHICAD Library. If this template is missing from the loaded libraries you will still be able to save patches, but they will be plain stickers with no special intelligence. If ARCHICAD fails to locate the Patch Template, it will notify you, and you will have the option to either proceed or cancel the operation.
