One thing I have really been wanting the last few weeks would be the ability to have smart/auto text attributes within layout. for example, being able to do maths within auto texts, having it so I can input 2 dimensions for example and then having a 3rd auto text be them multiplied to show the area.
The auto text currently feels like a glorified fill in the blanks option currently however the UI for this still seems a bit clunky. It would be cool if you could input a place holder and then when you hover or click you mouse on the text it would open a textbox for you to fill in the blank. then wherever that auto text is it could fill in.
Another thing would be the ability for auto text to read into a linked viewport and call out more information than currently available. having something like being able to count the number of a certain component or refer to component attributes would be really cool to be able to do. My aim at my job currently is to automate as much of the layout side of things as we can and trying to make the most of auto text is proving to be not much faster than doing it all manually as it is currently.
If anyone has tips or some other things I would love to hear them as it may be my lack of experience with SU/LO speaking currently.
