Door Stamp in archiad 24

I want to use the Door Stamp 24 marker in archicad 24 solo project. You can show many more things on the door marker it seems. Which is great. However you can't show the only thing I'd ever want to show on a floor plan, the leaf size. Why would I ever want to show egress size or unit size? No person ever in the history of building ever ordered a door by one of those dimensions. I have to be missing something. If it's a 32" x 80" door, I want my marker to show 32" x 80".

You can get there using "D Marker 24".
Checking" Fit Shape to Text" will hide the Marker

What you really want is the "Builder's Dimension"
But as you have already figured, it's gone:

I finally found where this stuff is listed in help, but it was zero help. The help section for 24 shows the marker for 23 which has different settings.

Edit: The basic window-door-skylight marker shows the leaf size, but it also shows the ID of the door. I don't want to show the ID. You can make the ID blank, but I use the ID for other things sometimes in schedules to sort or eliminate things. I'm open to use a different marker if anyone has something else that will do this. Still trying to work out my 24 template as we go.

Awesome, that's the ticket! Yes I was aware that builders dimension stamp went away. Just for anyone that finds this thread in a search. Set things according to the screenshot, but you also can shut the ID off on the next page of options to get only the builders dimensions. Fit shape to text doesn't seem to have any effect once you shut off the marker shape as it greys out after marker shape is off.

Doing it this way is actually better than the builders dimension stamp as you can easily drag the text to other positions. I don't remember being able to do that in 22. Seems only able to drag back and forth along where the extension line would be but I haven't played with it to see if you can move it off the line with another setting.

Now if only they'd fix the cabinets so they don't count the doors in the size.

Thank you for the correction Nick.
"Fit to shape" has no bearing once the marker head is off.

I should have said:
"Marker Head" unchecked and "Show ID" unchecked.
