Creating Suite Numbers

Recommended Posts

Wondering if there is a function or a symbol idea to making suite numbers or Suite Type letters.  So for example I've got a large multi-residential building with say 40 suites on 4 floors with 4 different suite layouts.  How would you go about labeling them?  Not which unit is 101, not do I start to the left or to the right, but the label itself, something that acts like a symbol but is very easy to edit and populate throughout a floor/layer and something that is scalable.  I've attached a pic to give everyone an idea of what I'm getting at.  Right now the Unit type is a simple text object ("Type A, Type H, etc.") and the unit number is a red rectangle with rounded edges and a separate text object above it that says ("101, 201, etc.")

Although I'm not an expert, I reckon what you're after would suit Marrionette perfectly. @Marissa Farrell would be able to give you much more info than I could

If I'm not mistaken this is exactly what the Data Tag is for.    But it has to attach to an object,  such as a "space" or whatnot to obtain the info the tag displays.

I agree with the suggestion of Data Tag, but if you find that it's not a reasonable solution, we can absolutely tackle this with Marionette in one way or another.
