auto-scalable object (2D symbol) | scale independent (paper size)

CharlesC

Hello community, 

 

Newbie question here, I'm looking for a way to create a scalable 2D symbol. In my case its a '' + '' that I want it to change scale accordingly to the scale I'm in. Exactly like a symbol line set to ''scale independent'' (paper size). 

 

regards, 

Charles C.

As far as I am aware I don't think Param-O can easily use the GDL Global Variables, and it isn't the best tool for creating advanced GDL objects. Try searching for the GDL Cookbook by David Nicholson-Cole on the 'net. I think it is sourced at Nottingham.ac.uk. It's a bit out of date but as an introduction to GDL it is a great starter. This STARTING OUT by Graphisoft may be of interest too.

If you have any knowledge of GDL that is an easy challenge if you know how to apply the GLOB_SCALE variable, or, if you are working on plan you could just use the Level Dimension tool with the cross hairs and assign a blank to the numeric value.

Unfortunalty I don't... I was afraid it would required this kind of knowledge... Anyplaces to start learning GDL ? will param-o replace this way of scripting?
