Text Codes For Locating Details/Sections

Not applicable
I would like to see codes added to text or labels so that I can point to specific details or sections. For example, we often have labels that say something like:

"...SEE DETAIL 3/A305"

It would be nice to be able to link to the detail with some kind of code system like:

"...SEE DETAIL <D01:PmADrNo>/<D01:PmAShNo>"

You can kludge this now, see Alex's tip at http://archicad-talk.graphisoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=625. But clearly this should be possible entirely within ArchiCAD. Auto text is creeping it's way into other tools (check out the little pull downs when you select the text in a level or elevation dimension). Your suggestion is one of the most useful and is needed to close the loop now that we have titles and auto-numbering in PM.

Yes, you read that correctly, we are in the US but use the INT version.
