Hi all,

working with AC25 and setting up my working template for the new AC26 release.

I've set up under 'Product Info' for a window with a double glazing option which in the drop down you choose true or false.

 

is there any way when true is selected it adds text to the window in plan view? Or can I have autotext added to 'ID' when 'True' is selected under my double glazing option?

 

kind regards

It should be possible with another custom property, something like this : 

IF ("DoubleGlazing" = "True"; "TextToAppearOnPlan"; IF ( "DoubleGlazing" = "False"; ""; "" ) )
If you want to add this to the ID, you need to create a new property which will concatenate the "Element ID" with the double glazing property. 
Look into the Expression-Defined Properties chapter of the help website.
