ARCHICAD lets you set a particular drawing as an Autotext reference. This means that your Autotext does not necessarily have to refer to the view or layout onto which you are placing the text.
To set a drawing as Autotext reference, select a drawing in the Navigator or Organizer or on the layout, then right-click to display a context menu and choose the Set as Autotext Reference command. (The same command is also available from the Drawing Manager.)
Once defined as an Autotext Reference, this drawing will appear as a choice in the Insert Autotext dialog box.
The Autotext entries that use the Reference as source will then show values based on the reference drawing.
If you later define a different drawing as Autotext Reference, earlier Autotexts referring to the original drawing will remain unchanged.
