For Symbol Label Suit 21

  • Model View Options added to allow users to globally control log file’s path in one place.
  • Adding one more log file’s path for Indigo Figs Zone Stamp. This feature is available for zone-aware elements only (Wall, Column, Morph, …).
  • For door/window, “Relate Zone to” option is added to allow users to choose which zone that door/window is belonged to, based on its opening direction.

(23 Jan. 2018)

  • For Building Material and Building Material ID of Composites/Complex Profile elements, user can select which skin to be displayed (other than the previous “Inside/Outside” choices.) (Available for Symbol Label Suit 21)
  • Error checking is improved. In case of transferring parameters from different element types or different settings, if the target element does not have the same parameter as the transferring element, the “-” will be displayed. If this occurs, just open the target label (Ctrl +T) and select appropriate content to display. (Available for Symbol Label Suit 21)

(9 Dec. 2017)

  • It is now possible to save symbol settings as favorites for various element types (Wall, Column, Slab, Door, etc.)

  1. First of all, great work!
    In Brazil we use the same symbols for wall finishes, and this is a great tool.
    Just out of curiosity, what is the standard for Thai Zone Stamps? In Brazil we are used to indicate this same geometric symbols under the name of the zone, showing every finish of the room. Is it the same in Thai? What zone stamp do you use?

    1. Thank you. Glad you like it.
      Regarding the zone stamp, it’s quite similar. We usually have finishing (Floor, Ceiling) along with finished floor / structural floor elevation level right under the zone’s name/number.
      Talking about zone stamp, I’ve been asked quite often if I could create a zone stamp that can acquire all these info and put them into a zone stamp. Unfortunately, no, not with the current gdl standard.
      I’d love to do it though.

  2. Do you have a label that just calls out the individual building materials of a composite or complex profile? So the user can select just one of them, not all?

    1. Sorry for the late reply. Just got back from the holidays.
      Currently, no, I don’t have one. But it’s a very good idea and I’ll definitely look into it.

  3. Hello again! Your symbol label is being very helpful here in the office!
    I saw you updated it, do you have plans for updating the Archicad 20 version?


    1. Unfortunately, the parameters/request options needed for the update is newly introduced in ArchiCad 21 and not available for ArchiCad 20. Sorry about that.
