About This File

Starting in Vectorworks 2018, users can now create menu commands defined by Marionette networks.

To do this, select a wrapper in your file, right click, and choose "Convert to Menu Command..."

This will open a dialog window where you can name this command. A background process will save your Menu Command to a file in your User Folder.

Once that's complete, you can access the menu command by navigating to Tools > Marionette Commands > [YOUR COMMAND HERE]


This menu command will allow users to select an object and create a class defined by the current object's attributes.

v1.0 will set the following. There are plans for improvement.

  • Fill Color
  • Line Style
  • Line Weight
  • Line Color


If there's an attribute you need/want right away, let me know, and I'll do my best to get it in.


One note: the new class will not be set to "Use at Creation," this must be set in the Edit Class dialog.

What's New in Version 1.0.1   See changelog


  • Fill patterns, previously just solid was pulled over
  • Line Ending Markers
  • Fore and Back colors for both lines and fills
  • Like 1

Nice script! Were there any changes in VW 2018, 2019 or 2020? Is there now a way to set "Use at Creation" to active?
