IDs for Surfaces

Josh Verran
It would be great if there was an ability to add an ID to the surface names, similar to how building materials can have an ID.

It would be used in scenarios like auto-text labels, keys/legends etc.

An example would be:
P1 = paint red
P2 = paint blue
P3 = paint yellow

An auto-text label could then be used on plans to annotate the wall linings, finish etc.
Eg: L1 / P2 / F1
ARCHICAD 18-25 | BIMcloud Basic | CI Tools - CI Extension by Central Innovation | Windows 10 Pro | Intel Core i7-6700K @4.00GHZ | 32Gb RAM | Dual Samsung S27F350 1920x1080 | Nvidia Quadro P2200 5Gb

Similar kind of wish, but for Composites and Profiles..

You should add a poll to your post.

Hi All,

Thank you very much for creating this poll, and for those who voted to express their opinion.

I am happy to say we took notice of this wish and I have added it into our WishList database (please refer to it in the future as Wish #12679). Hopefully, our Product Management team will adopt this one in the future.

Thank you all once more, and I wish you a great day!

Best regards,

This is something that I've also spoken directly to Graphisoft NA about. The simple addition of some parameters (ID, etc) to surfaces would be a game-changer. Really hope to see this implemented soon.

It would definitely be a step closer to a complete anotation (and maybe keynoting) system within the Archicad environment. Hope it happens.
