Eric (and AMT team & contributors) -
Thank you for a great body of work. I've had a chance to begin using the AMT for at-home office work (as well as personal design work). Having AMT based project examples and the internal configuration Worksheets really boosts my understanding of the AMT structure.

As you may recall from our past discussions, I am utilizing ArchiCAD for space planning work as well as design visualization. I have a couple of comments/questions:
1) The AMT did not include block plan layouts, so I created some simple plan view layouts. This layout type would be helpful for other commercial and institutional applications such as ours.

2) I am having some challenges making the zone stamp detail fonts large enough to show on an overall plan (30x42 @ 1"=20'). I tried setting my preferred sizes in the Element Attibutes, Zones section, but it does not appear to affect the stamp detail as a standard. So I'm going into the Zone Settings and modifying them there. Not quite as efficient as having a global setting. Perhaps I'm missing some available method?

3) Is there a way to include the zone list as a space allocation schedule on a given floor layout? Again, if so, it would be a great AMT layout standard for paper based area reporting and takeoffs.

Marc -

Thanks for your note and positive feedback about AMT in general. I'm sorry it took me 10 days to respond to your questions - I've been in Boston for the AIA Convention and can't keep up with everything.

We'd like to take your input and improve AMT, but need to understand it a bit more. It would be great if you could send me one of your files so we can review what you're doing. If that's not possible, then screenshots of a block plan layout and the zone list / space allocation schedule will help us to answer your questions better.
