Objects showing on certain stories

Red

I don?t know if this is possible to do in GDL with story sensitivity or not. But anyway I would like to be able to place an object and then go within the settings and adjust it so it would show on story 1 and story 4 only. I understand that I could reach this by layers, but where I work you got to stick to a standard set of layers and are unable to change due to B.O.M. generating correctly.

Thanks,
Red

At the present time, the only way I see to achieve this is to tweak the object with adding GDL commands in the 2D script... let me know if you need hints for the script.

Yes, any information you could provide would be great.

Red,
you can do it by checking global variables in your 2Dscript (go to AC help-GDL manual-Appendix-Global variables-Story Information) so you can hide the object on particular storeys. However, it does not work really good, because when you hide the object it will leave a hotspot on plan (and particular storey) instead (basically, you can not hide it completely) and what is worse you can accidentally select and delete it. So it is a very dangerous solution. Unfortunately, this feature has been on the wishlist for ages.
