Possibly a basic question but I can't find a simple solution in Archicad. Coming from a Revit background it's so easy to 'tag' a room in plan and then it can also be 'tagged' again in section/ elevation/ detail etc. I.e wherever else you might see it, using the data that you have already put into the 'room'. The 'room' being the equivalent of a 'zone' in Archicad. So I can see the room name, number, area etc. when I 'tag' it.
However, I cannot figure out how to get the same thing to happen in Archicad. The zones I have in plan are all labelled with their zone stamps working fine but I don't seem to be able to show this same information in section. What am I missing? Or is this not possible in Archicad? Seems crazy to be adding 2D 'dumb' information when the information already exists in the zone?
Thank you for your help! I'll have to ask our IT department if they can install the plugin. Your option 2, I (and a collegue) have tried in AC22 but neither of us could get it to work. It just showed the label with "#Zone" without actually picking up the info from the zone.
I find it strange that such a simple thing as this isn't already embedded in Archicad!
