Stagedeck Text Options in Different Views/Viewport


Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm having issues finding a way to show stagedeck height apart from Top/Plan view. As soon as I change for Top view the Text Options parameters disappear.

See pictures below.

 

My end goal is to have Text Options (stagedeck height) parameters to be visible with Top view (and also in Viewport). Is there a way to go about this?

For anyone following this thread...

Adding a setting to echo the 2D text block in 3D within the PIO, itself, is quite doable.  For decks and plugs, the text block would simply "follow" the 2D location but would be at the "deck top" height:

My question:  if this capability were to be included for the steps and ramp tool, would you want the text block to be at the height of the top step or ramp top?  At floor level?  Aligned (raked) with the angle of the steps or ramp?  Something else?

I like the "+30" because that's the only text field I'll add vs Dimensioning. That said, I only use it in Plan view.

 

I would think ramps and steps don't need labeling in 3D because the slope indicates direction up/down, and the heights at top/bottom are already labeled, so it would just create visual clutter.

 

Then again:

Look at all of the potential text items that could be displayed - beyond arrows and their labels.  While I, personally, might not use them in 3D, I can definitely see others' valuing that.
