I wish that AC can show cut zones in cross-sectional views and zone tool has a label function, so that the benefits are as follows:

1. You can use layers to show or hide the space name and texts.
2. You can use the label tool to labeled space name in sectional views .

1. would be covered by MVO model view options

2. On my wish list. I think someone else already posted the request.

Yes, I had the same thought recently.
It is one thing that Zones have Zone Stamps which can display stuff.
But that is again a single Stamp, there cannot be more.
So I think Labels should be available for Zones as well.

With the AC20 advent of extended Properties and Categories, I'm inputting more room-specific information into the Zone.

However, the Zone Stamps are not versatile enough to show all the combinations of Properties I might want to show. Especially since I generally use the Masterscript Total Zone, which is great, but doesn't yet recognize custom Properties.

Using the "Categories and Properties" Label on the Zone would solve all my problems!

Get in touch with the dutch reseller,, their Keymember library zone stamp offers excactly this: using properties as tags in the zone stamp, maybe they will translate the part for you.

Or, depending on the outcome of the upcoming US election, I may be expatriating to Amsterdam, and learning Dutch anyway!

I would await the outcome of the upcoming Dutch elections first :lol:

In case you did not know, Jeroen, who runs Master Script, works at Kubus too. So that would probably clue you in why we have these great zonestamps and such 8)
