1. Check out the VectorScript Guide in VectorWorks Help.

2. Subscribe to the VectorScript List.

3. Read the VectorScript tech board.

Simple version:

Write a vectorscript in the Vectorscript Plug-In Editor (normally under scripts in the Tool menu)

For things you want to be able to change in the OIP, set them up as parameters.

To use the parameter values as variables in your script, prefix them with the letter p. i.e. if you need an OIP item called Scale, you would refer to it in the script at pScale.

Good Luck.
