To assign IDs and names to IE Groups and their viewpoints, use the General Panel of Interior Elevation Settings. The options in the General Panel vary depending on whether you are defining Settings for an IE Group:
Each new IE viewpoint is automatically assigned to an IE Group (even if there is only one viewpoint in the group).
In each individual viewpoint’s IE settings, the Reference ID and Name fields are set to “By IE Group” by default.
ARCHICAD’s default IE Settings further define the ID and Name of each IE viewpoint to include Autotexts.
You can define a logical naming convention for your IE Groups by including an Autotext in the parent IE Group’s ID and Name.
This way, each individual Interior Elevation contained in the group will display a logical Autotext value that can vary for each elevation.
By default, ARCHICAD’s IE Group ID adds an Autotext of <Number> to the ID of each viewpoint in the IE group.
Also, the default IE Group Name adds an Autotext of <Orientation> to each viewpoint Name. Consequently, each viewpoint name consists of its specific orientation, which automatically assigned using Autotext (North, South, East, West…).
For an IE Group, use the General Panel of IE Settings to define any other Autotext to include in the IE viewpoints’ name and/or ID. For example, you can set the Interior Elevation Group’s ID to be the Zone Number:
