Zoom-dependent hotspot cross

Bruce

Does anyone know how to achieve that little cross in the zone stamp that always stays the same pixel size, regardless of zoom? I've looked through the code of zone_stamp_macro and can't find anything that seems like it would do this.

The display of the hotspot is dependent on which Construction Method you use to place the Zone.
When using any of the Manual methods (Polygonal, Rectangle, Rotated Rectangle), the hotspot is not displayed.
It is only displayed when using the "Inner Edge" or "Reference Line" Construction Methods, which are both methods that automatically detect zone boundaries around the clicked point.
The hotspot marks where you clicked when using automatic methods. When using Manual methods, there is no need for such input (since you are manually drafting the Zone boundary polygon), so there is nothing to display.

Hi Bruce
That cross can be moved by mouse, it tells the program in which room the zone stamp is allocated. I have not found any GDL code for that.

Probably part of the Zone Tool itself, rather than the Zone Stamp...

As mentioned it is the anchor point for the zone and is not something programmed in GDL.
I think you will find it is controlled by the actual zone tool (Archicad).

The best you can do (I think) is a regular hotspot.
It would be great if you could add a HOTLINE2 and see it (but not print of course) - but unfortunately they are invisible - except to the mouse cursor.

The confusion for me is that I'm creating my own zone stamp. It is the same subtype as the GS part (Zone Stamp), and will, of course, be placed using the Zone tool. However, I get no such cross in my part when placed - which tells me there must be extra code in the GS part.

This seems like a question only those at GS know the answer to...
