Advanced Redraw Options

(Options > Work Environment > Advanced Redraw Options)
Simplified Model: The full model is shown in simplified version (for example, hatches are temporarily hidden).
Structural Contours Only: Only the outlines of construction elements appear during a panning operation.
Full Model: All elements are shown in full.
Mac only: Do not antialias horizontal and vertical lines. Check this box if you want to exclude horizontal and vertical lines from the antialiasing process.
To turn Hardware Acceleration off, move the slider all the way to the left.
Off: Hardware Acceleration off. 2D Drawing takes place in software-only mode.
Level 1: 2D drawing of lines, fills, etc. occurs using the software, but certain layers of information (e.g. Floor Plan, Trace Reference) are constructed using the video card. If the ARCHICAD project is divided among several monitors, then the merging of these layers is helped to some extent by software processes.
Level 2: Both 2D drawing, including antialiasing, and the layering of information types is done using the hardware (video card) if the project is on a single monitor.
XP – processes are identical to Hardware Acceleration Level 1.
Vista – Full hardware acceleration works, but without antialiasing (this is a technical limitation.)
Full: Full hardware mode. Regardless of the number of monitors, all 2D Drawing processes, including antialiasing, are done by the video card. However, the performance of certain older video cards (in terms of speed and memory) may be insufficient: the redrawing process must be repeated on each monitor, requiring a great deal of video memory.
Warning: A hardware test indicates that the currently set 2D Hardware Acceleration Level exceeds the performance capabilities of your video card in some situations. Therefore, ARCHICAD will automatically switch to a lower level of 2D Hardware Acceleration.
