Tracker in Archicad
Tips and Tricks • Khan • 21 November 2022
The Tracker appears automatically when a second click is made on a selected element or when an element input is started. If the Tracker does not appear automatically, it is probably switched off.
If you want to have the Tracker always displayed, go to Options/Work Environment/Tracker and Coordinate Input. If you want to display the Tracker temporally, press the ‘N’ button and the Tracker will be shown. To hide it, press ‘N’ again.
WHAT IS DISPLAYED IN THE TRACKER
By default the Tracker shows the ‘Distance’ and ‘Angle’. X, Y and Z coordinates are hidden, they are shown after the Tracker is expanded. The Tracker can be expanded using the little arrow on the Tracker (appears after pressing ‘Tab’) or by using the ‘Arrow Down’ or ‘Tab’ button.
SWITCH BETWEEN TRACKER INPUT
To switch between DA (Distance/Angle) and XY coordinates on the fly, press ‘/’ (slash character) button. Units can be changed in the Options/Project Preferences/Working Units.
