  1. I have a couple of quick suggestions before we continue - I would store the pillow as a symbol rather than reference it from inside your Marionette Object (I would place an instance of the pillow within the script area still so that when you place it into a new document it comes through as well, though)

    Your point going into the Move node should be a 3D point - use Get XY to separate your desired point and recreate it with the Point 3D node as you've done in other areas of your script.

    I'm not sure you have the point you desire going into this port, though I may be mistaken.

     

    I'm more than happy to keep working through this with you, but please try what I've suggested and see if it helps you at all.


  2. Menu commands work by placing the network into the drawing area and then running it. It's possible that some of the nodes in your network are in a selected state when they are placed and are being included in the count of your selected objects.

    I'll take a look at your network when I find some free time and see if it's that, I had previously reported this as an issue and it was fixed, but maybe there's an edge case.


  3. Marionette Menu Commands are stored in your user folder

     

    User Folder > Defaults > Marionette > Marionette Command Library.vwx

     

    Open the file, in the Resource Manager you should see wrapper symbols for each command you've created. You can just delete the commands there and restart Vectorworks and they should be removed from the list.

  4. So I think the primary reason is the command used in those nodes doesn't behave the same between networks and object nodes.

     

    One way to specify the drawing order would be to use an ordered list to determine which object is drawn first and so forth.


  5. What point of the text are you hoping to get? The center? The point where the text starts?

     

    I would recommend using Get 2D Center if you would like the center of the text, or using the information provided by Get Bounding Box if you would like to calculate a point on the boundary of the text object.


  6. Right now my suggestion is to use the Get Width and Get Height in the Object Info category for those values, I'm looking into the best method for the referenced point while rotated since the naming of those points when rotated may not be accurate.
    I've also submitted a bug to update the Get Rectangle node once I've gotten a good solution.
