Secondary path group

Recommended Posts

I'm in need of a custom hidden group, similar to the profile/path group available in plug-ins. (I can't use those for this specific object as they are both in use already)

Am I correct assuming the path and profile group are groups attached as aux objects with a specific data tag for them to be recognised?

Is the content of such groups hidden by default or do I need to do something with it so it doesn't show as part of the object?

I’ve also manually attached tagged groups to the aux list when I’ve needed more storage containers. Anything that’s in the aux list won’t show up in the drawing. 


I know now there are providers for using custom storage groups, but I haven’t figured them out. If you don’t need to provide a UI to the storage group, you don’t need any special handling other than searching the aux list for your desired group.
