[SOLVED] New line in dimension note

ReignBough

I found out that the note in dimension can now be a multi-line. But when I tried using "\n" it was shown as the replacement character "▯" but it is correctly displayed in the settings dialog. When I tried using paragraph marker, "¶", it is shown as it is.

EDIT: (2016 Feb 02)
What I did was:

for new line:
sprintf((*memo.dimElems).note.content, "<MeasuredValue>\n%d EQ PANELS", panelCnt);
for paragraph marker:
sprintf((*memo.dimElems).note.content, "<MeasuredValue>¶%d EQ PANELS", panelCnt);

I don't think that either one is correct.
You should not see any such character.
The text following such a character should simply be placed into a new line.

This might have something to do with your Archicad version and Windows version not working together well.
Try upgrading to the latest hotfix and see if this problem persists.

Can anyone move this post on Developer forum, please? I post it on a wrong forum. Thanks.

How about creating a multi-line dimension manually (i.e. with ARCHICAD's tools) and then examining the resulting data through the API to see what delimiter it uses?

Thanks. Found it. It is ASCII 13, or 0x0D, or '\r'.
