Run Marionette on selected objects

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have made a small Marionette that extrudes several path objectes:



I have wrapped this and created a plugin symbol for this.

My default criterium is  (SEL=TRUE) , so I want to select several objects and run the Marionette on these objets. This does not work: As soon as I select the Marionete, the selection of the objects is gone and vice versa... ( of course...)

Converting to a marionette Menu Command works fine, but I then I lose the ability to configure the criteria and circle raduis.

Choosing other criteria like pen forecolor or class works fine too.


Did I oversee something ?

Just found that I can run the Marionette from another design Layer, but the ojects will then be moved to that layer ...

Hi @halfcouple - you are correct in that you have to use a Menu Command to run a network on selected objects, you cannot do it with a regular network or a Marionette object. You can give yourself access to options in a menu command by using the nodes in the User Interaction folder in the Resource Selector. If you replace the regular input nodes with these dialog nodes, when you run the command, dialogs will pop up for each node asking what you want the parameters to be.
