How to generate 'Wall Legend' Table automatically from the prepared drawing?
Legend means, Table of 'Preview of wall type' and 'its description written aside'. I want to generate this from the already prepared ArchiCAD plans.
I have generated schedules and lists but those don't show previews.
This would make a good wish; a preview image of wall types in schedules similar to door and window schedule previews that can be annotated.
Use Cadimage KeyNotes.
If you tag the wall types where they are used, Keynotes will automatically produce a schedule of them.
I'm not sure if this question is still actual, but adding an answer for anyone else looking for a solution.

I managed to find a way around it by making an 'off-layout' 'sample list' of walls, zooming in to this, then Document -> 'Save view and place on layout'.

Then one can use the usual in-layout text-tools to annotate each sample.
In version 20 you can add section, plan and 3D previews of the 3D elements (i.e. not for 2D fills) right there in the schedule.
