#260194
Tags and Categories is increasingly our go to label, because it references our custom IFC fields, which we use for keynotes. One object can have many IFC keynote fields for all the different sheets it appears on etc.

Anyway, the bummer with this label tool is that there is only one shape - a box, or perhaps also a box with a line through it, and that's it. We need diamonds, circles and ovals and everything else!

In ARCHICAD 20 it is now called "Categories and Properties Label 20" Label.
By the way, I suppose the reason those other frame shapes are not available is because this Label many times lists many parameters. And in that case imagine how a circle or ellipse shaped frame would look like. It would be huge.
Those shapes make sense only when the label is only 1-2 lines of text.
