Display egress width

Anonymous

We would like to automatically display the egress width on our code plan (Life Safety Plan). We were able to get both the width & height to show, but we only want to egress width, similar to the attached jpg. Anyone have any suggestions?

If you know a bit of GDL and feel a bit adventurous you can try to save the "Door Window Stamp 19" Label under a new name and modify that.
It already has a "Display Egress Dimensions" option, but that displays both the width and the height. You would have to slightly modify it to display only the width.

I'll give a little GDL a try, but how do I save the stamp as a GSM that I can edit?

It is a Label, placed with the Label Tool.
Actually, you did not state your ARCHICAD version, I just assumed you are on AC19.
This Label is available only with AC19, it is a new feature.

Yes, we are on version 19. So how do I save a "Label stamp" into something I can edit?

Place the Label called "Door Window Stamp 19". Then select it and use the File\Libraries and Objects\Open Object menu command (CTRL+SHIFT+O).
Then save as under another name. Then you can edit the copy.

Thanks for the guidance. Edited out the height after a few minutes of scanning the GDL.
If anyone is interested, the JPG below is the code removed (by adding "!" in front of line)...

Cool, I am glad it was as easy as that.
And I suppose you will specify "" (empty string) for the Separator Value instead of the default " x " string?
So instead of displaying e.g. "ED 0.90 x 2.00", it now only displays "EW 0.90", I guess.

Yes, the separator is empty. We added a frame around the text. Would have preferred an oval, but couldn't figure out that part.
Thanks again
