Hello everyone I have a tricky issue to solve : I placed one drawing in the layout and I want to show two different scales in the same drawing title. The reason why I do it this way is that sometimes I need to print the layout using different sizes ( A1 size: 1/100， A3 size: 1/200). Could someone help me to solve this issue? Thanks for reading.

Coding of the title would do it,
if the variable "ac_drawingScale" is in the title, that gets auto populated by the program as text i.e. 1:50
if ac_drawingScale # "" then
!ac_drawingScale has been auto populated
!ac_drawingScale gets split into aax = 1, aay = ":" aaz = scale, i.e. aaz = 50 as anumber
if VARTYPE(aaz) = 1 then
!CHECKS IF aaz is a number variable type
text2 0,0,"A1: SCALE=1:"+STR(aaz,1,0)+"-----A3: SCALE=1:"+STR(aaz*2,1,0)
!STR(aaz,1,0) turns number back to text to combine with other text, i.e. "50"
!STR(aaz*2,1,0) doubles the number and turns number back to text to combine with other text, i.e. "100"
!output text A1: SCALE=1:Scale-----A3: SCALE=1:doubleScale
!i.e. A1: SCALE=1:50-----A3: SCALE=1:100
I am up to page 4,152 of Archicad 27 Reference Guide, (Bluebeam Connection), but i got to read it all 😞 don't tell 'em i cheated by reading the last page first to see how it ends 🙂
