Area Unit display in Schedules

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi, I need to display units in schedule. I have list of zones, or fills and measured area, or surface area column in schedule. And I need the units (m2) to be displayed next to area value. It show after sum value, but I need this in each row.
I searched lot and couldn't find anything
If there is no way to do that, maybe it's possible to turn of unit display after sum value and then I can insert custom text column after (I can't use superscript in custom text but it's ok)

see pic. (the language is Georgian )

I don't believe it is possible to show the units for each value - only for the totals as you have discovered.
I often put the units in the text for the column header or as you have suggested you could use a column of custom text.

You can use superscript text if you copy and paste it from your floor plan text - or any text editor - even this post.
i.e. type 'm²' in the floor plan (or text editor) and then copy and paste it to the schedule.
Once in the schedule you can copy and paste it from there.

I tried copying formatted text but in schedule it becomes flat

Maybe it depends on the font you are using.
I was trying with Arial.

which Archicad are u using? I have 17 and I tried with arial but same happens. But it's ok for me.
I wish in next versions schedules to be more flexible

I think that was 18 but I just tried 17 and that worked too.
Maybe select the text on plan and open the text editor and copy from there rather than copy the text directly from plan.
I tried also in version 12 and I had to copy from the text editor.

Or copy this text and try to paste it...



Are you Mac or Windows OS?

Ok, I got it, what you write is not superscript function, it's in font character already superscripted that works thanks

Yes sorry - I have always used the alternate characters rather than superscript.

ALT+0178 in this case.

But oddly enough you can not type this directly into a schedule.
You must copy & paste from another source.
