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.
run command: numbercountobject
prompt : enter start number (user enters “2”)
rhino creates a text object that just says “2”
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
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.
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?
InstanceLabeler.py (1.0 KB)
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
@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 ?
