Hi, I have a problem with zone tool, the thing is it adds a door area and increases overall number which I don't want as I need only usable area rather than what I have.
The right example on image shows the correct area 26.806 for that room but left one is adding to area as you can see.
if I set zero to "Reveal to Wall Face" / a door offset, then the room area is correct on one side (in which door is located towards the interior face) but another rooms area is getting inside anyway, how to solve that ?
In other words I need only room contour area without getting inside door passage.
And by the way who includes bottom door area into area of room, it is not correct. It shouldn't be like that by default.
Though I have one more issue with duplicated stamps.
Because I couldn't customize that blue stamps(I just didn't find a way to do that) I enabled "show zone stamps" from "model view options" this one is customizable from tool option window but now I have duplicated stamps. In other words I can't get rid of that blue one at the background, any workaround on that ? Zones are heavy and complicated thing.
And why that blue one appears at all if stamps are disabled by default ?
I don't know if the old zone stamps will ever be completely deprecated as there is the problem with older files having only zone stamps.
So Archicad now needs to have both systems.
Maybe in years to come, the zone stamps will be gone for good - I don't think so though.
That is why there is a Model View Option and a Preferences/Legacy option (hide zone labels in sections) and the label zone button in the zone tool, that should be set to use zone stamps still when you open an old file.
You then have the choice to change these settings and use labels or leave them as they are and stick with the stamps.
You can even use both at the same time as you have discovered.
The new template should be set to use zone labels.
