Question:

How can Allplan be operated under a QHD / UHD / 4K resolution?


Answer:


Starting with Allplan 2018, a query will appear in the Allplan Start under a QHD / UHD / 4K resolution (from 2560 x 1600), in which you can decide whether the operating system scaling should also be used in Allplan. This choice can be changed at any time in the Allplan Options-> Desktop Enviroment- > Display-> Scaling of the user interface.

Note:

If this option is switched on, Allplan uses the scaling level, which is set globally in the display settings of the operating system. Side effects of this scaling can be slight blurring in the symbols, drawing elements, and dropped graphics in Allplan.
Please note that this functionality is only available from Windows 8.1 and higher.

Question:
How can I work together on a project with a partner from another country?

Answer:
Using Allplan 2019 and later, you can work on projects across countries.
You can define projects in a country-specific manner. This means that a project gets the resources (for example, hatching, patterns, layers and so on) and reinforcement settings of a specific country. Depending on your license, you can install one or more additional country packages. For example, you can then create a project with resources and settings for Germany and another one with resources and settings for the UK.


Requirements:

Whether you can use country packages depends on the Allplan license.

Only the ‘Cubed’ and ‘Exponential’ license types include country packages.
These license types enable you to use as many country packages as you like. You can create and open projects with any country code.

The ‘Lineared’ and ‘Squared’ license types only include one country package by default. This also applies to all conventional license types such as ‘Architecture’ and ‘Engineering’. In other words, you can only create and open projects with this country code.

Installing country packages:

When installing Allplan 2019 for the first time or upgrading from Allplan 2018 or earlier, you must explicitly install the additional country packages.

A default installation onlyinstalls the country package of your country. If you want to use different country packages, you must do a custom installation. Only a custom installation allows you to select the country packages you want to install.
You can do this whenever you want - be it the first installation or an upgrade or update.

Doing a custom installation:
Start Setup.

Select Customfor the Setup type.
When it comes to selecting Features, you can select the language packages you want to install.
You can see a list of all Allplan languages included in your license.
After this, you can select the countries. Select the country packages you want to install.
Click ‘Next’ to confirm all other dialog boxes.

Note:Please note that the more country packages you select, the longer the installation will take and the more hard disk space will be required.

Using country packages in Allplan:

You must define the country when you create a project. You cannot change the country later.

Creating a new project:
When creating a new project, you can select the county in country-specific templates.
Select the country and the template you need.

If you do not select a project template, you must select the required country in the next dialog box.


In the project:
The status bar shows the country set for a project.
The units for length entries and reinforcement set in the Options are project-specific settings. These units are preset depending on the country selected.



Important note:
  • When checking out a project in a workgroup environment, you can choose which country-specific office standard you want to check out.
  • Click in the ‘License Settings’ to see which countries are included in your license.
  • There is a default country, which is usually the country entered in your license. Setup always installs the data for this default country in the STD and ETC folders. During installation, Setup creates a STD.??? folder and an ETC.??? folder for each additionalcountry package selected (??? stands for the country code). The office path and default path are always based on the country set for the project that is currently open. That is to say, when you open a project and save a favorite or library element in the office path or default path, these elements will only be available in projects with the same country settings. ProjectPilot is an exception; here, the office path and default path always refer to the STD and ETC folders.

Question:

The windows for options and the window for IFC import and export are closed immediately when opened. How can this issue be solved?



Answer:


1. HP computer

If you are using an HP (Hewlett-Packard) computer, please take these steps. Otherwise proceed to number 2.

Check whether the security software "HP ProtectTools" is installed on this computer. If yes, then uninstall "HP ProtectTools". This software suite consists of several progams. In most cases, these programs are:

  • HP ProtectTools Device Access Manager
  • Embedded Security for HP
  • Face Recognition for HP ProtectTools
  • File Sanitizer For HP ProtectTools
  • Privacy Manager for HP ProtectTools
  • Theft Recovery
  • Drive Encryption for HP ProtectTools
  • HP ProtectTools Security Manager



It is possible that more or less HP software than the listed is installed. When you uninstall the "HP ProtectTools Security Manager", no other dependent software should be listed during uninstallation.

If there is dependent software listed during uninstallation, please uninstall these programs first. As the last step, "HP ProtectTools Security Manager" should be uninstalled.

An example message, listing dependent software which is still installed:




Important notice: Please restart the computer to complete uninstalling the software.




2. Dell computer

If you are using a Dell computer, please take these steps. Otherwise contact the Allplan support.

Check whether the security software "Dell Data Protection" is installed on this computer. If yes, then uninstall "Dell Data Protection". This software suite consists of several progams. In most cases, these programs are:

  • Dell Data Protection | Security Tools Authentication
  • Dell Data Protection | Security Tools


It is possible that more or less Dell software than the listed is installed. When you uninstall the "Dell Data Protection", no other dependent software should be listed during uninstallation.

If there is dependent software listed during uninstallation, please uninstall these programs first. As the last step, "Dell Data Protection" should be uninstalled.

An example message, listing dependent software which is still installed:




Important notice: Please restart the computer to complete uninstalling the software.




Notes:

HP ProtectTools Security Suite was developed by McAfee in cooperation with HP. It is pre-installed on most HP business notebooks and on some HP desktop computers.

HP ProtectTools are using Full Volume Encryption (FVE) by McAfee Safeboot, which changes the Win32 API behaviour. This causes problems in Allplan.

Also Dell is using similar mechanisms for the Dell Data Protection Suite. They have the same influence on Allplan.

Please note that these programs in either case have negative effects on stability and functionality of Allplan, even if you might not notice it (example: working options and IFC windows in different Allplan version).

Question:

How can I output a test plot with different data types used in Allplan?



Solution:

Allplan comes with drawing files containing test data that can be used for this purpose.

If necessary, create a new project and copy the drawing files with the test data to this new project.

Open ProjectPilot: Allplan -> File -> ProjectPilot - Admin.

Set the external path to the '..\New\Testplot' folder, which is a subfolder of the local Allplan program folder.
Click 'External path' with the right mouse button and, on the shortcut menu, choose 'Select external path'.
Select the '..\New\Testplot' folder, which is a subfolder of the local Allplan program folder: c:\Programs\Nemetschek\Allplan\New\Testplot, for example.

The following layouts and drawing files are available:

  • Layout 1 - Test Plot Allplan Testbild / Allplan Test Layout
  • Layout 2 - Test Plot Muster & Schaffur / Patterns & Hatching
  • Layout 3 - Test Plot Allplan Testbild / Allplan Test Layout
  • Drawing file 25 - Füllflächen + Stifte / Fills + Pens
  • Drawing file 26 - Muster / Patterns (Version 2006 and later)
  • Drawing file 27 - Schraffuren / Hatching (Version 2006 and later)
  • Drawing file 100 - Allplan Test Drawing File (Version 2008 and later)


Copy these layouts and drawing files to the new project.
Select the relevant drawing files with the right mouse button and choose 'Copy to ...' on the shortcut menu.
Select the new project.

If necessary, create a layout, place the drawing files in this layout, specify an output device and and print the layout.

Note:

Make the following settings to ensure that the data is output correctly:

  • Select "white" for the background color.
  • Turn off "Color stands for pen" in "Show/Hide".
  • Turn off "Surface elements in background of each document" on the "Selection" tab of "Plot Layouts".
  • Use Windows drivers for printing.
  • For HP plotters, select the "Avoid out of memory condition" or "Output as a bitmap" option in the plotter properties.
  • For optimum color output with sRGB values, apply the settings described in the FAQ entitled Color adjustment - Windows drivers and Nemetschek vector drivers.
    https://connect.allplan.com/en/faqid/0001a106.html



Notes:

Colors in printouts can vary depending on several factors such as

  • Output device used
  • Paper used
  • Ink used
  • Driver type used (Windows or Nemetschek drivers)

In particular, colors can differ regarding

  • Color display
  • Brightness


Colors in printouts can even vary if you use the same output device but different Windows drivers.
On-screen display can be influenced by various factors such as different settings for contrast and color temperature.

As the possible settings are so widespread, you can see that it is essential to print out test data in advance.

Question:

Can I run Allplan 2018 on an Apple computer?



Answer:

Basically, you have two options to run Allplan 2018 on an Apple computer.


1. Allplan 2018 with Parallels Desktop 13

Quality assurance at Allplan tested this option with the following components:


Hardware requirements

  • iMac (end of 2015 or later)
  • Intel Core i5, i7 or i9 processor
  • 16 GB of RAM
  • 50 GB of free hard disk space
  • AMD graphics card or NVIDIA graphics card (Note: Parallels does not support OpenGL 3.3. Consequently, Allplan uses GDI+, and the graphics card is labeled as unsuitable by the system test.)


You can also use the following hardware, which was not tested:

  • MacBook Pro (end of 2015 or later)
  • Intel Core i7, i9
  • NVIDIA graphics card


Software requirements

  • Mac macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 or later
  • Parallels Desktop 13 for Mac
  • Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit
  • Allplan 2018-0-6 or later


Please note that running Allplan 2018 on Parallels Desktop 13 is much slower than running Allplan 2018 on a native Windows operating system.
Parallels Desktop 13 supports OpenGL 3.2. Therefore, Allplan 2018 must use the GDI+ mode, which is generally not suitable for architectural data. We do not recommend using this approach. Parallels Desktop 13 is available as a free 30-day version. So, you can test Parallels Desktop 13 for 30 days and see for yourself.

Important note: You cannot activate an Allplan trial license or presentation license with Parallels Desktop 13.



2. Allplan 2018 with Boot Camp

This option has not been tested by quality assurance at Allplan. With Boot Camp, Allplan 2018 runs on a native Windows operating system. Therefore, Allplan 2018 with Boot Camp is faster than Allplan 2018 with Parallels Desktop 13.
Make sure you use current hardware and software (Mac macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 or later).
We do not provide support for this installation.
