Please have a look at the example macro named 'label.layout' in the folder macros/examples of the LayoutEditor package. (open it with the build in text editor and press the execute button to run it) That macro is exactly intended for this common application. Alternatively copy&past the macro below. Of course step&repeat as well as the id format needs to be adjusted to your needs. ```cpp #!/usr/bin/layout #name=label macro #help=automatic labeling int main(){ int x,y; for (x=0;x<10;x++){ for (y=0;y<10;y++){ string s1,s2; s1.setNum(x); s2.setNum(y); layout->drawing->point(x*1800,y*800); layout->drawing->text("#"+s1+"/"+s2); } } layout->drawing->selectAll(); layout->drawing->setWidth(400); layout->drawing->toPolygon(); layout->drawing->deselectAll(); } ```
