I’m trying to see how Rhino works for sketching floor-plans and other architecture relevant work.
I’m using autotext to keep track of the area of rooms (rectangles). The autotext is linked to the ID of the shape in question. When I copy these two (to add a new room to the plan for example) the autotext keeps showing the area of the original, and does not respond to changes in the copied rectangle, as the object ID references by the autotext doesn’t change in response to them being copied at the same time. Is there a way to make the copied autotext “change its allegiance” so to speak, to the copied shape? By for example baking them together before copying them?
Using copy/paste instead of the copy command fixes this issue for dimensions, but not for the autotext unfortunately. Could this issue be solved with Rhino alone, or do I have to crank out grasshopper?
Thanks in advance
