Got a minute? We appreciate your feedback:
Is it possible to see the beam sizes over the floor plan display? Similar to beam tags on revit. It will really make the beam modelling process less back and forth.
Go to Solution.
You can add a label.
An autotext label is probably the best, as you can format it to say exactly what you want.
Can you please elaborate? Adding beam cross section in autotext label doesnt show the beam X x Y.
Beam cross section is whether it is rectangular or round.
You want just 'width' & 'height' from the general parameters.
Additionally, is it possible to add autotext labels to all the beams at once in a floor plan?
As soon as you're done setting up one label, you can ALT + leftclick it to define it as your standard setting for upcoming labels.
Afterwards you can select all your beams at once with the beam-tool active plus CTRL + A or via Search and Select (CTRL + Shift + A).
Then use the label selected elements tool, which you can find here:
Document > Annotation > Label Selected Elements
The label will associate to the centre of the beam.
If you have the leader line on, you will always just get a default leader line.
If you turn it off, you can control the position of the label a bit with the anchor point.
