Viewport crop legend / count

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


Currently i'm working on a drawing with multiply break out rooms and now making a viewport per break out room. I was just wondering if it's possible to make a Legend / Count for counting the objects / symbols in your viewport crop. So what I actually want is a countlist per viewport, with the actual quantities in the area.


Would like to hear if someone has an idea.

Use the Location field in the Database Criteria.

To do this fist place a polygon outlining the room

Name it

List objects within Location=Name of the ply

Thanks for the reply, but unfortunately is this something I already tried, and not worked for me. Didn't had a clear overview of symbols in the drawing crop but only nonsense..


Also tried to referer to the viewport number but it didn't work as well.

The Location selector only works for objects in the design layers, not for the crop. You'll have to add additional named polygons to your design layers.  An extra step over restricting by VP, but easier than manually counting.
