Room labels

Recommended Posts

I can't get my room labels to display the number style i've set for that text box.  Im using a macro, but how do I get the macro to display the way I want?

 

Thanks.

Johnny,

 

You are using Chief's built-in Global, Object Specific macros.  Those are fixed format in inches.  Unfortunately user macros can't be used in Text Box Room Labels so you can't format those to Feet and Inches.

Thanks for the info - that stinks though.  I guess I should just type what I want then and skip the room label?

Johnny,

 

One thing that you should be aware of is that the Number Style settings that you show in your pic ONLY apply to dbx's, not to the general drawings.

Good to know - I was hoping it would apply to the macro, but I guess not.  So does that mean if I want to use a room macro im stuck with inches?

Johnny,

 

I can make it work in Ft-In - but only using the Label, not a Text Box.  It requires custom macros to convert the numerical values to formatted text strings.
