As an Exhibit Designer, I have to draw a lot of rectangular Graphics and then keep track of them with Graphic numbers then coordinate with Graphic Designers who then might tweek the sizes slightly for any number of reasons. For years I've been drawing a square placing crossed lines on them to signify them as a graphic and then manually labeling them with a number, typing that number into a spreadsheet, and manually entering their dimensions. Over the years I have evolved so that I can attach a record to a 3D modeled graphic itself from which I can create a schedule this streamlines the process. What I would really like to do is to have a Parametric tool where I could click and drag a rectangle on a working plane and then enter the Graphic Number, the thickness, and if necessary, enter a new width and hight and have the symbol dimensions respond. I've tried doing this with a scaled symbol (making a 1x1 graphic then scaling it, but I really would like to be able to change the dims without manually entering it also I'v found relying on scaling symbols creates instabilities) Since it is such a simple shape, I would think that it would be straightforward enough. Any Ideas? I would also like to tag items which are embeded in Symbols. Looking at the forum, it appears that this isn't something that can be done. (FYI, you can do this in SketchUp) I have also been running into a problem that "height and width Appear to change depending on the view you are in when you recalculate the field. is there a way arround this?
