You're right: the autotext seems to work in 2D but not in 3D
I knew it worked in 2D and I just assumed (incorrectly) it would also work in 3D.
I should know by now to NEVER assume anything in Archicad.
Always check first!
So now we have the problem that the actual values for the project info fields can't be extracted.
Unless the Project Info is manually saved as an XML file when ever there is a change.
Or create your own Project Info object that can write a text file automatically when the parameters are updated.
You may as well just create a 3D sign-board object and add the data if that is the only object that needs it though.
There must be a way of getting the project info data without saving the XML file but only GS could tell us.
Or maybe an API can access this data but that is beyond me at the moment.
