Everything related to the integration for Archicad.

Info:

It seems the problem with the grass material is more serious than it seemed. The problem is that ArchiCad doesn't pass the right material info to the plugin under AC18 - not just the grass parameters but other Maxwell settings are numb too. Right now I am not sure if it is because wrong handling of the changed API functions, or bug in the API (or inside ArchiCad).
I have started a discussion about it with the AC guys, hopefully I will get more info soon.

+ lists (library parameters, Referenced MXS parts) are resizable.
+ after undo-redo plugin panels display is updated.
