1. Maybe a workaround to do it with a function in the property-set. Create thre properties, the first one with A, B, C, D, the second one with 1, 2, 3, 4 and the third one is the function which is combining this two properties. With this workflow you could select all elements in one row.
2. If you only need it as an information in the plan, you could do it with a label, which you write in gdl.
yes, agree, if you need the information only in the plan, I prefer the second solution - fully automatic labels. If you need the information in an ifc, I wouldn't know a way to do that without python or grasshopper. Do you have an idea?
Not a direct solution, but have you looked at Element ID Manager? With no selected sort criteria and the unique option selected, the ID will be set in the order the elements (columns) are selected. Might speed up assigning values to a row if you have enough points to consider.
