About This File

This node returns the name of a symbol chosen via selection dialog with previews of the symbols in the current document. If a folder name is given, only its content is shown.


When dealing with a big number of different symbols with long and possibly names difficult to remember, just click the "Select Symbol ..." (OIP) and visually select the symbol within the dialog window.

Hi Niels,


thank you for your message. We are aware of the issue. Currently the node doesn't work in either wrappers or Marionette Objects.

Our developers are working on resolving this. As soon as I receive information about it, I will post it here.

Hello, this is a very helpful node - if you can convert it again as a user interaction node - then it can be easily integrated into menu commands


Hallo, dies ist ein sehr hilfreicher Node - können sie diesen auch noch einmal als User Interaction - Node umbauen - dann lässt er sich super in Menübefehle integrieren.

Hallo Zusammen

Ich möchte diesen Knoten als Steuer-Element benützen.

Das Symbol im Zubehör-Bibliothek ist mit einer Datenbank verknüpft und soll nicht in die Zeichnung eingefügt werden.

Die Werte in der Datenbank werden nicht angezeigt... "sFldValue"
Wie bekomme ich die Werte?

Danke für eure Hilfe





Hello everybody

I want to use this node as a control element.

The symbol in the accessories library is linked to a database and should not be inserted into the drawing.

The values in the database are not displayed ... "sFldValue"
How do I get the values?

Thank you for your help
