Using Macros for Room Labels

Recommended Posts

Chief provides several Macros that can be used in Room Labels.

 

These can be found in Macros>Global>Room Info but the way to get them to display in the actual Label is a bit tricky.

 

In Default Settings>Rooms>Room Labels insert the macros you want.

 

The other way to get similar results is to use a Rrich Text (allows better formatting) and simply place that RT within the room or add an arrow which points to the room.  With RT you have to manually place a copy of your RT into the room.

 

The first attaced pic shows what I typically use for my Room Labels in a Rich Text.  If you instead use the Default Settings approach, don't use the %room.name% macro as chief will provide that automatically.  The second pic shows 3 examples:  1: Room Label, 2 RT with Border, 3 RT w/o Border

 

Note:  With Room Labels you also don't need to use the %room.dimensions% macro since the Standard Label does it for you.

FYI -- You don't need to remember the spelling. Just open the > icon which will list all the standard Chief macros. You may need to expand the text box to see it.

Gerry is right about the "insert macro icon" >.  I didn't see that in the Defaults because it was in a different position and appearance than in the RT.

 

I modified post #1 to reflect that.
