It would be great if there was an ability to add an ID to the surface names, similar to how building materials can have an ID.

It would be used in scenarios like auto-text labels, keys/legends etc.

An example would be:
P1 = paint red
P2 = paint blue
P3 = paint yellow
etc

An auto-text label could then be used on plans to annotate the wall linings, finish etc.
Eg: L1 / P2 / F1

Hi All,

Thank you very much for creating this poll, and for those who voted to express their opinion.

I am happy to say we took notice of this wish and I have added it into our WishList database (please refer to it in the future as Wish #12679). Hopefully, our Product Management team will adopt this one in the future.

Thank you all once more, and I wish you a great day!

Best regards,
Minh

This is something that I've also spoken directly to Graphisoft NA about. The simple addition of some parameters (ID, etc) to surfaces would be a game-changer. Really hope to see this implemented soon.

It would definitely be a step closer to a complete anotation (and maybe keynoting) system within the Archicad environment. Hope it happens.
