Zone Stamp - show room dimensions?

Does not seem possible.  Saw a post from 2005 about a script, but that is beyond my knowledge.

 

Found an object online as well, but that is twice as much work.  Zone stamp to show area, then object over that to show dimensions.  Can change font etc. 

Add-on somebody created?

The problem is zones can be placed automatically based on the walls (or zone boundary lines).

And they will re-shape as you update them.

So they can be absolutely any shape at all and won't necessarily have nice x & y dimension as in your image.

 

That is why it is best to use an object with stretchy nodes.

I guess you could script a zone stamp (or now a zone label) that has stretchy hotspots as well, but you will always have to stretch these manually as there is no way Archicad could know what nodes you want to measure.

Yes, for odd shapes it would not be 100% accurate, but at least could give an estimate.  A script could calc average and take into account the shape for best estimate. 

 

For easy shapes though should be a setting in the tool already.  Faster than deciphering dimension lines.
