SECTION MARKERS THAT SCALE TO DRAWING SCALE?

gotphish001
Enthusiast
Most of my work is 1/4" scale so I have my section markers set to be a good size for that. Sometimes I'll have a floor plan that doesn't show much in a project so I'll want a smaller scale, let's say 1/8". I might do this if it's an addition on a slab with no basement. I just don't need a big scale for this. The section markers are huge at 1/8th scale. Is there a way to make the markers scale up and down like text does? I can't find a setting anywhere and google failed me also. I'm using built-in-section markers for 22 solo and also have some section marker_NCS 20.

Yes, so you are wishing for scale-dependent Section Markers.
I think in theory, this could be done by modifying the default Section Marker in ARCHICAD.
I have moved the topic to a Wish forum and added a poll.

This should turn into a wish and might also be extended to apply to Grid Elements as well.

I wasn't exactly wishing for it to be a thing as I thought it probably was. OH well. What is the work around people use? Just use a second section marker on a different layer that is smaller that doesn't link to anything? I hate to double things up as it can easily create drawing conflicts but do what you gotta do I supposed.

Laszlo, I have the same request for scaleable section markers or detail tags as Nick noted in his original post.  I just can't seem the find the a way to get to the Wish Forum to vote on the poll you created.

 

I sure do miss the simplicity of the old forum.....

As far as I know, polls still do not exist in this new forum...

Well, I guess I strike out on two accounts.  No scaleable section markers and no wishlist.

 

So I wonder how we are supposed to let GS know what features we would like to see added if there is no wishlist anymore?

Hopefully polls are part of the forum improvements that are in the works mentioned by Noemi recently...

You are in the 'Wishes' section of the forum already with this post.

We no longer have 'polls' as such in this new forum - but it is being worked on so I am told.

Graphisoft do have records of the old polls still - we just can't see them.

And no, I have no idea when polls may happen again here.

 

All we can do for now is 'Like' the post making the wish.
