Minimal Space for Custom Objects

Hello,

 

Our office does quite a bit of multifamily residential work with accessible needs, and thus we often use custom objects that are saved out from different configurations of the native Archicad toilet or tub with grab bar objects, since the toilet object with built in grab bars is too limited for our needs. This has worked great so far, with a custom 2D symbol used to get the correct line and fill types, but where we run into problems is the display of minimal space which we need to show in our drawings.

 

The only 2D script used currently is "FRAGMENT2 ALL,0" to keep the object the correct size with a custom 2D symbol, but if there is a way to add additional script to control the lines drawn for minimal space with the global settings, that would be great. Currently those lines remain on for any and all views, even for marketing plans where they look a bit odd.

 

My first thought was, when in the 2D symbol window, to put the lines representing the minimal space boundaries on a different drawing index layer from everything else, but after that I wasn't sure where to go given my GDL knowledge is pretty bare bones. Took a look at the code of other objects but it was hard to discern which pieces I might need to copy in. Screenshot of the 2D symbol attached, with the lines needing to be controlled by the minimal space MVO highlighted in blue. 

Any help is much appreciated!

You can save a copy and open it to save the presets, then you have access to all the other settings as well

Thanks for the response. Can you clarify what you mean by saving a copy? Of the original objects before combining? When I save all together as an object much of that code goes away. I have attached an example of the object in question if that is helpful.
