Custom Drawing Title with ac_drawingName

Narska

When trying to use the ArchiCAD parameter ac_drawingName to show the drawing title I get a message that the variable is uninitiated. If I put the parameter in the parameter list it doesn't pull the drawing title. Can someone please explain how these are meant to work?

Never tried it, but here is a thread about something similar.
Probably it's required also to add "ac_drawingNumber" - ID of the drawing. (gdl reference guide -> miscellaneous -> fix named optional parameters -> parameters set by AC -> Drawing Title atributes)

Hi,

Check these:
- is it added as a string type parameter?
- is the subtype set to Drawing Title?
- is the gsm saved? Objects opened from an lcf can't be overwritten.
- are you testing it on a placed drawing? A drawing default might have an empty name.
