Spot Elevation for Slab


This tag gives you the ability to show a spot elevation for the top of slab.  It ONLY really works in plan as the actual tag is placed at "0" of the design layer that it's on.

@Josh Schulman, here's a simple tag that you can attach to a symbol and then give it a name and color.  You can add additional fields to the Record, etc. as needed.   The tag is set up to look for the field in the record called "Name".  Edit the tag to see...The worksheet is set up to show the two fields called "Color" and "Name" from the Record

Cabinet Size tag


Here's a tag that will show the size of both base and upper cabinets (without the dimension "ticks").  There are several configurations and of course, you can easily change the font size, whether or not you want a box around the data, etc.  Check out the file...you'll need both the tag and the Record.  The record lets you change from "B" for base to maybe "SB" for sink base, etc. (you'll find that function in the "Edit Tag Data" button in the OIP)  Works on both design and sheet layers (in viewports in Annotation space)
