Room Names 4D

Very popular part that can be placed under a dimension string to show the zone/room name. The room name can be set as the “Zone name” through dragging a hotspot onto the zone, by selecting room names from a pull out list of common names or by simply typing a custom name.

Room names can be moved laterally so as two names can be butted together to form strings of names. eg KITCHEN/DINING/LIVING.
