I would like to script an object that spreads out small sub parts inside of it first based on number or set distance and then I would like to edit (with hotspots) the position of each of those elements. The problem is that as far as I got the initial spread distance/ position would have to be calculated and set as an array in the script, but how do I let AC know to let go of those initial positions and let me adjust them with the hotspots. Furthermore, how do I keep those newly set custom positions, even if I adjust the overall width for example (A)?
Why dont you add "Offset X and Y parameters". The hotspots can then be positioned in the same manner as the sub-parts with the parameters set to 0,0. Then when you need to move the sub-part from its calculated position the offset parameters changes.. make sense?
