Detail Indicator NCS -- no numbers appear

Have I got my settings wrong? I can't get the details numbers to appear with Detail Indicator NCS OSL, though they show up with other indicators.

BTW, what's OSL, or OPH for that matter?

It's been a long time since I have looked at the NCS markers.

Are they current with the latest library? These functions have changed over the years.

Do the markers display correctly in the layouts? Are the details placed to layouts? If the markers are set to show sheet references they only work once the drawings are placed.

You must open the NCS marker with AC 13 first.
And than save it in AC 13 version.
Open it, you will have no problem.

Yup, AC13 Library, and details are all on a layout sheet.

Nope, the plan doesn't display correctly in the layouts either.

As I say, I could use Built-In Detail Marker or Detail Marker Simple -- they display ok -- but I've got a couple dozen detail markers in the plans/sections already and hope I don't have to readjust them all.

The marker came with AC13, not sure what you mean open it then save it in 13 first?

Geof, the marker you are using is not an out of the box archicad detail marker. It looks like someone customized the standard one. Perhaps OSL is their initials?

I misunderstood.
I thought, you use the NCS one from the former version.
In this case this file must be opened as library object first, than save it in own version. And than open it in section tool and so on

Weird -- I've never added any detail markers. No big deal; I'll switch to one that works. Thanks.
