    Hey guys,

    I draw a lot in the 2d symbol putting things in different layers and using code like

    IF layer1=1 THEN
    FRAGMENT2 1,0

    for every layer so I can turn things on and off.

    The problem is the values of A and B don’t adjust automatically. I activated the “FIT size to 2D symbol” and the “create a bounding box”(compatibility options).

    in layer 1 there is a box of 100 X 200
    in layer 2 there is a box of 300 X 800

    Archicad makes a perfect bounding box depending on the layer but the values of A and B are entire layers limits so they end up being always A=300 B=800.

    Any code that i can make the A and B values= bounding box?

    Thanks in advance

    It is probably better to post in one forum or the other, and then if you get no reply try the other forum.
    It gets a bit tricky when the same conversation is happening on two different forums.
