how to auto label wall sections with correct label

Recommended Posts

I sent to plan a first floor framing wall plan.

 

The walls are all labeled such as "Wall detail-14"

 

When I highlight that wall and click on the "Open Wall Detail" icon, I get a 2d picture of the framed wall ....which is what I want. When I send that to plan, it IS NOT labeled with the "Wall detail-14" ....but has a label across the bottom ....something like "Wall Layer 4 - Viewed From Outside"  it does this on all wall sections.

 

I would like to have the wall labeled with the label from the plan on each section. Any idea how or what I need to do to make this happen ...I spend the last 2 hours screwing around trying to find out how ....could have just typed each on in!

 

Almost forgot...running x9 Build 19.3.1

 

Thanks in advance

You are looking at 2 completely different things.

The wall label in plan view is the actual wall number.

The Wall Layer # in the wall detail view refers to the wall framing layer number in the wall definition.

You need to use the %view.name% macro in the wall detail itself.

Thanks Michael ....I tried it earlier and the macro did not work.

 

Then, I read it again ...and found the small detail "in the wall detail itself" ....works like a charm!

 

Must have wasted 3 hours trying to make that work..... sometimes I think I'm losing my mind :)

 

Thanks again....works like a charm.
