Missing Global values in PARAM-O "Global Value" node

I find only limited number of global values in "Global Value" node dropdown list:



Where are value "GLOB_NORTH_DIR" and others ????


Is there way I can write global value by hand ?

I guess many of the Global Variables have not been implemented yet so to me, this is more like a wish, so I have moved this thread to the Wishes Forum.

1. The object generated by parpam-o cannot be opened with the built-in gdl editor of archicad
2. The existing functions of parpam-o cannot fully realize all the functions of GDL code, such as GDL graphical interface, some commands for generating 3D from 2D
3. From version 24 to the upcoming 27, it seems that parpam-o has not been upgraded much
Please developers talk about the future direction of parpam-o, thank you!
