Hi, can anyone tell me how to create a symbol line but to manually set the anchor? see pictures. I'm thinking that this is possible because in ArchiCAD there is a type of line that looks like the anchor is defined, check out "Double" in line types. thanks
Like Ede said, you should create your symbol line using the project origin as the alignment base (i.e. create your elements according to the origin), as AC will use this to align your elements once pasted on the line types dialog box.
You need to use a Hotspot.
Place it to the opposite side of the intended center.
If the fartest point of the Gas text is let us say, 1 meter from the intended center line, then place a Hotspot 1 meter from the intended center line on the opposite side.
Then select all (including the Hotspot), Copy, then paste into the New Symbol Line Type pattern. Works for me.

Using hotspots leaves a dot in the line type. I'm trying to make an amended version of the slope line type but can't replicate the line type without a spot due to the hotspot whereas the original doesn't have a spot and is offset as required.
Any thoughts on how this has been achieved?
