Run python script on selected elements

Hello

It would be a grate improvement to the possibilities of python in Archicad if the script could be run only on the selected elements. Then we could automate a lot more!

 

As discussed here:

I am aware its „archicadStyle” workaround solution but You may create schedule of dewotek elements with one column of Internal ID save it to csv (tsv) and let python script to use it as source

Even if that is possible, isn't that a really complicated and resource intensive way of doing something that should be easy? I have a feeling that you probably agree 😉

 

If python is the tool to make automation tasks in Archicad is should be quick and easy.
