Hi !

I'm currently developping an Add-on that aggregates data on the project, then outputs it in the form of a word document.
However, I recently found out there seems to be some kind of way to generate written reports readable directly in ArchiCAD, like the "Documents -> Listing Extras -> Elements List -> Default" menu option, as seen in my attachment.

However, I could not find any mention of it on the forums, searching for "Scheme", "Schedule", or "Report" : and neither in the examples projects.

I did try out WriteReport, but I'm not sure it would be the right fit for this feature.

Could someone confirm / infirm me that it is indeed doable with the API, and, if it is, link me to some related functions ?

Thanks !
