Cross Section Title Text

Recommended Posts

Hello,

On my sections, (not my typical 4 elevations) I would like to change the font on the title text. Is this possible without changing any other text?

This is coming from my CAD Details

Thank you

That looks like the label. Check the layer controlling the label and adjust the text there.

I label wall sections and details in Layout often times.

I label my views within the Plan (Project Browser Name) and don't use the "Layout Box Label".

I actually have a Library Object (Block of Rich Text and a Graphic Scale) that I place in every Plan View:

  • Floor Plans
  • Elevations
  • Sections
  • CAD Details
  • etc.

That way I can easily locate the Title any place I want and simply by changing the name in the Project Browser I automatically change the name of the view.  It's all controlled by standard Chief macros.

Thank you! I need them only for my sections and would like a specific font when I place the section in the layout.

Thank you! I'm already doing this for my elevations because those are preset.

Automation is the key. I continue to remove these steps to speed up and create congruency from drawing to drawing.

I was wondering if there was a way to block the text - would you care to share the code? And where do I place so it is suppressed before I send to layout?

I did this long ago, but it does not effect sending to layout.

Thank you
