Editable Hotspots in PROFILER

I am making a pitch for creating EDITABLE hotspots along a PROFILERS path. This would allow us to not only change a path after the profile has been made, but also to ADD Z values to the nodes of the path. I am thinking of gable end rake cornice. I have done STAIR RAILS this way, only I have to go back into the GDL and edit the z values.....

Anyone?

I'm there with you brother. I want to edit the path and the profile. And how about being able to re-use profiles once created so we can, say, create multiple lengths of a crown molding by simply drawing the paths in plan.

This tool is so important in a program like ArchiCAD. It could, and should do more.

Yes, you read that correctly, we are in the US but use the INT version.

There is a great tutorial on Archiguide, you can find it here http://www.graphisoft.com/support/archicad/archiguide/3D_imaging/techtipsept2002.html about making stair rails with TrussMaker. The tutorial is done by Robert Olivieri.

On the other matter of editable hotspots along a profiler path. Couldn't agree with you more..

Cheers.

I'm with you Duane. I would use profiler much more with this ability.

we all know that this can be done easily with 3rd party plugins like GDLToolbox or Archiforma, But GS please extend the functionality of Profiler.
