thanks Joe. that works ok for line dimensions.
I was looking more for Room Interior and Room Standard Area indications. 
could you enlighten me with that please mate. thanks

I could write a couple of custom macros to do that.  It shouldn't be too difficult using the Number Formatter Class.

But Chief may already have something I haven't looked for.


Actually the 3 object specific macros can be used and modified using 3 corresponding custom macros to provide the alternative displays.  This can be done in a RTB place in the Room.  I use RTB's for all my Room Labels.

Here are a couple of my "Room Macros" that will provide the "Secondary" output for the "internal" and "standard" areas.

This is just a sample of what is going to be in that Macro Package.


These macros can be placed in the Default Room Label - or in a Text Box placed in a Room.  Whatever the current system (Metric or Imperial) the macros will display the opposite data.


Stay tuned after the 1st of the year for a complete listing of all my macro packages.


I will be adding a similar macro to display the Secondary "Room Dimensions"
