Door & Window marker overwrite.

Anonymous
Not applicable
Is it possible to overwrite Doors and Windows marker for different views in some way?
First, for 1:50 scale and lower, I'd like to see all information I enable in marker setting, for 1:100 scale I'd like to see only hole dimensions, and for 1:200 scale I want to see only axes line. I won't not see the marker at all, and I won't se window/doors ID in 1:100 or 1:200 drawings. If this is not possible, I think I add this to request (but I hope it is already possible).

I think one of the markers that ships with AC allows for scale sensitive settings.

In the end it's just a GDL scripted library part, so it can be altered to act whichever way you like, but if you are unfamiliar with GDL this might be a lot of work.

I would say they should also be able to be scripted to work with model view options, but that would require even more knowledge of GDL and how to set things up to work with MVO.

You can use more labels with different info, for different scales with different layer.
you can apply them with "Label Selected Elements" command

I didn't find a marker that can do what I asked. As suggested by Fra, I can use label to add ID and some other information only in 1:50 views, but I see this as workaround, because I need to add new elements and a dedicated layer. And didn't find a way to hold only hole axis in 1:200 scale.

I did many GDL objects in past times, but with the latest Archicad version, GDL has become too complex and I have to less time.

If you are familiar with GDL it shouldn't be too hard to 'chop up' the existing marker script in to sub-routines that get called using view dependency.

We have 3 markers. One of them is part of our local subsription library (and that's the one I use). The other two I think would be part of the standard library. The one that has scale sensitivity doesn't seem to have the axis line option.

How did you obtain this? Editing marker settings? The problem is to obtain only axis in 1:200 views, axis with dimensions in 1:100 views, and a complete marker with axis, dimension, ID and still hight in 1:50 views. Mostly I can bundle the kind of marker to the scale, but I think it can be handled even better with MVO

Certain Zone Stamps in the default Archicad Library are scripted to be scale-sensitive, however, I am not aware of any Door/Window Marker that would be scale-sensitive in what it displays. Maybe a wish for such a feature would be in order.

Hi all,

Thank you very much for sharing your ideas about this issue!

As Laszlo said, unfortunately, the default Door/Window markers are not scale-sensitive. However, a wish for this function has been entered into our Wish List database previously (please refer to it as #9911). I really hope that our Product Management team will adopt this one in the future.

Thank you all once more, and I wish you a great day!

Best regards,
Minh
