Yes, you can Schedule the coordinates of these objects by scheduling parameters of the Library Part:

1. Select Criteria: "Element Type" equals "Object", AND "Library Part Name" contains "coordinate".
2. Click the down-pointing Arrow button to the right of the "Add Fields" button and select "Library Part Parameters".
3. In the uppermost field, select "Search Criteria", the use the "contains" option and type "coordinate", to find those Library Parts in the Libraries the name of which contains "coordinate".
4. Click the "Find" button.
5. Click the first Library part found in the list to select it. Its parameters will be listed in the lower left.
6. Find and select the "Custom Coordinate X", "Custom Coordinate Y", and "Custom Coordinate Z" parameters in the list and click the "Add" button to add them to the Schedules Fields.
7. Click the "OK" button.
8. Click the "OK" button again.


Now generate the Schedule and the values will be scheduled. You can modify the Header Text of the Columns.

Hello papsphilip,

A schedule I'm not sure it is possible but you are able to use an object which is called "Coordinate Dimension 22" to have X,Y and Z coordinates for each object.

1. Select Criteria: "Element Type" equals "Object", AND "Library Part Name" contains "coordinate".
2. Click the down-pointing Arrow button to the right of the "Add Fields" button and select "Library Part Parameters".
3. In the uppermost field, select "Search Criteria", the use the "contains" option and type "coordinate", to find those Library Parts in the Libraries the name of which contains "coordinate".
4. Click the "Find" button.
5. Click the first Library part found in the list to select it. Its parameters will be listed in the lower left.
6. Find and select the "Custom Coordinate X", "Custom Coordinate Y", and "Custom Coordinate Z" parameters in the list and click the "Add" button to add them to the Schedules Fields.
7. Click the "OK" button.
8. Click the "OK" button again.


Now generate the Schedule and the values will be scheduled. You can modify the Header Text of the Columns.

Nice to know we can still schedule coordinates. I remember we had a problem for a while, (last two three versions).

yes finally!
now the cherry on top would be to bring a very important feature from Greek and German Archicad editions to the international version somehow, which is analysing a polygonal fill or zone to simple shapes rectangles and triangles , adding dimension and scheduling them. That is also a really important part of the process here in Greece unfortunately now done by hand

The best thing for you to do would be to contact your ARCHICAD reseller in Greece and communicate this to them, that there is a market demand for this functionality in your country as well. Then let us hope that GRAPHISOFT puts it in the Greek version as well.
