Is it possible to transfer the dimensions for the leader arrow between labels?
Eyedropper obviously does not work, but I thought the LABEL_POSITION globals might reveal something.
Or am I heading down an all too familiar GDL dead end.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hmm... pipette does works.
As option you can save label as Favorites.

When I try to use the eyedropper/syringe, the dimensions of the leader do not transfer.
See below screen shot.
The top row are two different labels. If I eyedropper/syringe the setting of 'Original Label' to 'New Label'. The dimension of leader of the new label seems to inherit unusual dimensions.
Am I doing something wrong? This has always been a frustration of mine with the new labels since they changes the labels in 21(??).

Yes, after using a pipette, only the size of the arrow and the angle of the label line changes. But now I understand that you need to change the length of the arrow line automatically. Unfortunately, it also annoys me that there is no option to do similar Labels lengths.

Being a Global Variable, Label_Position is reading the values from the Archicad environment (i.e. how you place the label) and is not a parameter you can set.
You can use these values (i.e. to position text) but I don't think you can influence or amend these values.

Thanks Andrii and Barry. That's what I suspected.
