Hello, I’m wondering if I’ve discovered an issue with the coding of the “Text” object type and how it pertains to lists.
The scenario I’m experimenting with involves isolating all the plain text on a specific layer in model space. My intent is to use the “All Objects on Layer” node to generate the first list, then the “List.RemoveIfNot” node to create a subsequent list with only “Text” objects remaining.
The problem with this approach seems to be that the “Text” object type appears to be coded as “DBText” in the “Object Types” node, whereas within the list generated by the “All Objects on Layer” it is simply “Text”.
In my experimentation the workflow above works fine for isolating objects such as “Polyline” or “BlockReference”, but not “Text”. I’m wondering if this is by design or an oversight of the Dynamo code?
