DW marker head line type

Ivan Piljek
I'm trying to rearrange macro script for marker head so that I can change market head and center line type in double line (or any other). I did that but one thing is giving me a problem, I can't get this two new items in marker menu. It should be easy but I'm doing something wrong.
File that I'm working on is \Object Library 15\3. MACROS 15\Marker Macros 15\gs_DW_Marker.gsm

Check the little X button at the beginning of the line of the parameter "gs_Marker_lines".
That button controls whether the given parameter will be visible when you enter its settings dialog in ArchiCAD.
Those two parameters are sub-parameters of this one. So if this is hidden, they will also be hidden although the Hidden checkbox is not checked for them.

In addition to altering the macro, you need to add these parameters to the Marker library part that calls the macro. In the Master Script of D Marker 15 is the code:
	call "gs_DW_Marker" parameters all
so the D Marker 15 also needs the added parameters. Rather than altering the ArchiCAD macros and markers, you should Save As... these library parts with a new name (and GUID) so your edits and libraries remain apart from the ArchiCAD defaults. This will ensure that your work does not get replaced when new libraries are released (Graphisoft released an update for the USA library this month).

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.
