Custom Object Labels


Recommended Posts

Is there a format or code that allows you to create custom labels for objects?  For example, the automatic label for a 30" x 60" single hung window is 3060SH which appears to come from the object name.  Is there a way to create a custom label such as [30x60] that draws from the width and height and allows a user to insert an "x" in the center?

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.

I am using Pro 21 and discovered a way to create a label. Go to your window and under "label" go to specify label. Then in the label box, enter %width%x%height%SH (the SH is for single hung, though you could change it for the type of window it is. It should display as 36"x60"SH. Hopefully it will work in your version
