Object Records pull data from OIP fields, to expedite Data Visualization updates

Question

Submitted on behalf of a Vectorworks user/client. 

 

They pointed out that when Data Visualization is being used to represent values of given objects, how cumbersome it is to manually update record field values if an object changes - for example - in dimension or area etc. His suggestion is to add the capability for Record Field Values to be drawn from object values in the Shape tab of the Object Info Palette. 

 

I seem to recall witnessing an implementation of this type of thing using Marionette, but this doesn't translate or connect to the Viewport Data Visualization facility.

I agree. Data visualization should be able to access anything that can be accessed in a worksheet.

 

And the things that can be accessed in a worksheet should also be expanded to anything that is displayed in the OIP.

 

Somewhat possible for PlugIn Objects, but certain other objects (like dimensions) are not PIOs and don't have a "Parameter Record" that can be accessed.
