Add Text Encoding Info

This tool is part of Simplebim Prototypes addon. In order to use the tool, you need to download and install the addon from here.

Tool for adding information to all objects about the text encoding used text properties. Adding this information is useful if using for example unicode characters is not allowed in some BIM requirements. In this scenario you would run this tool and set validation rules that reject the Unicode value.

The tool adds two properties to the objects:

  1. Text Encoding: ASCII, Codepage or Unicode.
    • If any of the text properties use unicode, then Unicode
    • If none of the text properties use unicode, but any text property uses codepage, then Codepage
    • If all text propertis use only ASCII, then ASCII
  2. Text Encoding Properties: a semicolon separated list of all text properties that use either unicode or codepage
