Hello everyone,

I am trying to manage wall labels in ArchiCAD 24 (US version, running on macOS Big Sur).

Please see the attached image:
- Label #1 - this is a "NCS Wall Label 24". It looks almost perfect, except that the square must be rotated 45 degrees.
- Label #2 - this is exactly the label I need. I made it from lines and numbers, so it's not parametric.

I tried all labels, and I didn't find any label that I can use for my drawings to mark up walls.
Some labels don't have needed frame option, some just not rotate text vertically etc.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

I have one that is "similar" to what you are after, but it doesn't draw that thick line across the wall.

Just a heads up though, it is currently free but I plan to sell it in the next release (whenever it might be).

You can do your own label.

1) Explode the label you shown which is the nearest you could find (EDIT→ Modify→ Explode in current view)

2) Modify the lines as you want and in this case turn the square of 45°

3) The text must be an "automatic text" referring to a wall parameter or general parameter in your case.
If you want to put a "custom text", you will have to create a property "Custom text" and make available for your walls, and then choose the Automatic text field "Custom text" from the properties.

4) Select the "modified label" and in File→Libraries and Objets, Save it as Label.

Then try to use it by selecting it as type of label.
