Love the idea....but what's the use of an "Object Specific Area (%area%) that doesn't round?
My old method, a text macro %ObjectArea% [=area.round] was context "Reference Object" and didn't work on labels. Re-contexting it to "Owner Object" broke the macro on my other referenced objects, but it then started working for use in polyline labels. In the short term I've created two duplicate macros labeled %ObjectArea-Owner% and %ObjectArea-Referenced% - cumbersome but it works. I'd rather not have to duplicate all my macros - but I love not having to chase and ensure the arrows and referenced objects remain touching when I'm moving things around.
Next, unless I'm missing something, Labels are all the same size, they all map to the same layer "Polylines, Labels", so their text properties are identical and, thus far, I cannot find how to differentiate them - so again, I'm forced to find a work around, versus just plain working..
Last, when are you "chief" guys going to hire Joe Carrick? - He seems to be the only guy out there explaining what the manual you've refuse thus far to provide for Ruby and Macros....And I'm tired of piecing it together by scouring this forum. (For instance, I just found Joe has posted a method which tests and thereby combines both my separate macro's above - I just don't have time to learn it just yet cause I have to get some actual work done tonight.)
