WISH - copy text count

Hi!

I would love to see the ability to create a TEXT object or maybe it would be a “number object”
Let’s go with that.

  1. run command: numbercountobject

  2. prompt : enter start number (user enters “2”)

  3. rhino creates a text object that just says “2”

  4. user makes copy of number and rhino automatically counts to the next number … so the copy would actually be “3” and then if they copied it again, “4” and SO FORTH.

YES I WANT TO BE ABLE TO NUMBER MY PARTS AND NOT HAVE TO MANUALLY DO THE TEXT COUNT, thanks

Let me know if something like this exists please!!

Hello - see how this works- I think the text settings broke at some point with a change in Rhino, but it might be OK for now.

Unblock it from Windows, then drag and drop onto Rhino. The command is Numberer

OK Awesome, thanks @pascal - Open to this - in fact great solution. If I wanted to explode these could I somehow? for example, If I wanted to make these single line text and scribe on my part? this would be the full solution.

@pascal

I’m wondering if you could do this with text blockinstancename. So instead of a leader, you could simply click on your block and it will populate your blockname in a text object for you? Kind of a stretch, I know

Hello - so you want a labeler for block instances?

Like this?

To use the Python script use RunPythonScript, or a macro:

_-RunPythonScript "Full path to py file inside double-quotes"

YESSSSSSSSS!!! I’m clapping and applauding over here

THANK YOU.

@pascal ! is there anyway to get this to work on a leader ?

and or to work in a detail window view on a layout sheet?

Hello - I’ll need details about what ‘works’ means in these cases…

Pascal, is there a way to get this script to “update” if the block name changes ?
