    I guess I must be missing something but it seems that most of the label GDL commands are missing from the 22 GDL guide.
    Or have I missed something

    It seems there are 22 label parameters in the 21 guide.
    Only 5 in the 22 guide.
    Anything to do with the fact that “LABEL_CUSTOM_ARROW” is considered deprecated since ARCHICAD 22?

    Most of the label global variables are considered deprecated starting from AC22.
    For the complete list of them, see here.
    In the meantime, lots of fix named optional parameters have been introduced to continue the role of the deprecated globals:
    – label specific ones are here
    – text handling related general ones (for all annotation elements) here.

    So, the above is the reason why the updated GDL Reference Guide does not contain the same stuff as the previous one.
    Hope this helps.

    Also, we have a “new features guide” to give you some general overview of changes in ARCHICAD 22, see here, please.

    I have a Label which pulls parameters from door objects to define the Australian Egress Width correctly.
    The Egress Width shown in Door 22 does not comply with Australian Standards.
    My Label uses….
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Pull standard parameters from standard doors
    n = REQUEST (“ASSOCLP_PARVALUE”, “gs_rebate_width”, index, type, flags, dim1, dim2, framerebate)
    nn = REQUEST (“ASSOCLP_PARVALUE”, “gs_ds_w”, index, type, flags, dim1, dim2, framerebate2)
    m = REQUEST (“ASSOCLP_PARVALUE”, “ac_leaf_width”, index, type, flags, dim1, dim2, leafwidth)
    o = REQUEST (“ASSOCLP_PARVALUE”, “gs_leaf_thk”, index, type, flags, dim1, dim2, leafthk)

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!transfer to Label parameters
    parameters rebate =max(framerebate,framerebate2)
    parameters gs_leafwidth=leafwidth
    parameters gs_leafthk=leafthk

    Which works fine for the label (at the moment)but I cant schedule the result as I cannot transfer these parameters to properties.
    Any ideas anyone?

    so basically I need to be able to link these door parameters to properties otherwise I cannot correctly define the egress width required for AUSTRALIAN doors

    Related to the new text and label parameters, this Tip & Trick page needs to be updated:

    Creating a Label Text with AC Globals

    It would also be great if a similar infographic could be created for the Pointer, Symbol Label, and Text Label settings panels. Thanks.
