Text matching the value of a dimension through text fields

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if it was possible to create a text field which would automatically display the value of a dimension for a title block layout. And have it update if the dimension changes.

Additionally, is it possible to ‘link’ two text fields together as to display the same information? So that changing the contents of one would automatically update the other?


This feature does not exist for text fields, but is on our wishlist at https://mcneel.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/RH-49774

I’m not sure I follow what you are requesting here. You could have two text fields that both have the same function and would therefore result in the same content when things change to make the function resolve to a new value.

Makes perfect sense. Thank you.

Lets hope this feature gets implemented soon!

This feature will not be implemented for Rhino 7. We might be able to do this for Rhino 8, but it will take quite a bit of effort as there are a lot of corner cases to deal with.

Would this be possible in some way? My title block has multiple fields displaying the same information in different formats. It would make it so much easier if I could simply modify one field and have the other automatically update. I guess I could use UserText fields for this but is there an alternative manner?


Forgot to mention that this value may change between different layouts in the same file, therefore I would need to create UserText fields for each layout every time. It would be much easier if I could do this via normal text field commands.
