Global Variable gs_label_width

I am bringing an old Archicad 11 Project back to life as we have been tasked with re-cladding the Building and so need to edit a lot of the original Details.

 

What I have discovered is that a Label object I made as a poor mans Keynote tool uses a couple of Global Variables to find out the size of the label within the MasterScript.

 

Now it seems since Archicad 22 this is a bad thing. The other problem is the variable I called doesn't appear in the current Archicad 25 GDL Guide which means I assume I need to find out its new name.

 

The two variables giving me the issue are...

gs_label_width

gs_label_height

 

Any idea what these variables are now called as I haven't found them in the manual yet?

Thanks

Oh argh, so my object was based on a Graphisoft Archicad 9 label object which I tweaked to suit what I wanted as it was good at handling changes of view scale and guess what it uses the variable "Glob_Scale" in the Master Script which the manual says you can't use as a parameter which obviously this label object does...
