Dimension Extension Lines Showing Over Part of Room Label

Recommended Posts

In the image below, you will see that I have a room label for my deck that includes the room name as well as the room (deck) dimensions.  In the room label dbx I have given the room label a white solid fill and have included the box (border) around it.  Please note that my dimension extension lines are over (visible) for the room dimension part of the label while the dimension extensions are under the room title.  Is this the way it is suppose to work or is this a bug that needs fixin?  I want the dimension extension hidden under the complete room label - not just part of it.

You can also see in the image that the dimension extension lines are under the text box for my deck floor and ceiling elevations which is what I want.

Is that Chief's automatic label or your own text box? I suspect that it's Chiefs automatic label which limits what you can do with it. I would personally just use my own text box along with a macro for that.

Having said that, if those top two items are Chiefs automatic labels, I would consider that a problem that needs to be addressed and would report it to tech-support.

Michael:

 

Yes, they are Chief's automatic labels.  I agree, I believe that is something Chief needs to fix.

      I apologize because I know this topic has been covered many times but I can't seem to find exactly the help I need from previous posts.
       
      I have created a simple room information label but wanted to modify it slightly.  See attached.  Want ceiling height to read in feet and inches and want to round the room volume to nearest whole number.
       
      A related matter is when I go in the text box and try to insert a user defined macro they are all grayed out. I was attempting to copy and modify the volume macro to round out, but could not insert the modified version.... Not sure why that is.
       
      If someone can point me in the right direction and or provide any assistance, that is greatly appreciated.
       
      Thank you,  Mike Dolce, Architect

      I have added the Room ceiling height and the Room finished floor material to the Room Label to make a my custom room label. 

      I need the ceiling height to be in feet (&inches) not in inches. I need the floor finish material to be the Generic type of finish (wood, tile, carpet, etc.) not the specific type of material. 

      How can the label be modified to do this? Or can I change the way the room ceiling height dimension is noted without affecting my other dimensions? 

      Can the materials be automatically noted as a type as they are found in the library rather than a specific material?
