There's no label which extract properties out of a fill? In the settings of the label it looks like it would be possible to extract the properties of the building material... Is there another way, another label I could use or did I something wrong? We need this information for the 2D-details, but don't want loose the hole information of our building materials.

It should be possible, but it isn't?

What you are showing on the first image is the Building Materials Dialog, so that "Compressive Strength" is a Building Material Property, not a Fill Property.

Thank you for your respond, yes I'm agree it's a fill drawed with the settings of a building material. And yes it sounds not that logic, that we want to get properties out of a fill;) but in the background the fill is asking the building material for the front/ backpen and the fill, so why not the properties too?
Maybe a short explanation what we want to do: We're drawing our details 1:1 or 1:5 in 2D with fills, but we need the information of the model in our details. We discussed that problem already here https://community.Graphisoft.com/t5/Developer-forum/Labels-with-a-data-base/td-p/342374
And at the moment we'er doing it like this, we're drawing our details in the section. Put the label on the elements in the model and hide the model, that's working for small projects. In really big projects we often have two different files, because of to big files. One file with the detailplans and one file with the BIM-model and there's the issue and to put a modul into this file doesn't work, because we're splitting in case of the file size.
If we could extract the information of the building material out of a fill, we would solve that problem and the reason why I'm asking for that is, that in the settings of the label it looks like it works for fills too...
Thank you for your thoughts;) maybe you've a solution for bigger projects;)

Currently, Fills can not have Properties, only Building Materials. Therefore, Fills can not "inherit" the Properties of their Building Material. You should make a wish for this feature if you want to see it in Archicad, so we can submit it to Graphisoft.
If you make a wish, please post its link in this thread.

Bimdo, if you are drawing with building material fills, you can extract info with the skin list tag. The downside is that you have access only to the basic properties, ID/Manufacturer/Description, but still very useful to keep the information coherent. We are using the same method as well.
