How to preview Grasshopper text within layout space?

Hello. I need to automate custom layouts that consist of constant text and variable text (generated using Grasshopper). I am not able to reference points from layout space / preview GH geometry to layout space. My solution is simple:

  • Create layout with permanent texts
  • Overlay the whole layout with one detail
  • Place reference points into model space and use them as reference for the automated text
  • Hide reference points in details because otherwise they mess up with other geometry

This is somehow working, but it’s also counter-intuitive. Does someone developed a better approach than mine?

am using fab tools for this
