Redbike BIMApps AutoNumber is a great time-saver in managing room numbering on the fly. With a pre-defined structure including prefix and suffix, you can apply an incremental number to each selected room element.
AutoNumber takes a start number (default = 1), a prefix and suffix that you specify (default is blank) and specified length for the numeric number. With the structure of the number defined you can individually select room elements in your preferred numeric order. AutoNumber will apply the incrementing number that you have defined in the room's 'Number' parameter. For example, if you define the structure as:
Start number= 1, Prefix = "L1", Suffix="", Numeric Length=3 then the first selected room element will be numbered as L1-001, second will be "L1-002", third will be "L1-003", and so on.
