grips with rotate action
« on: August 03, 2009, 03:34:41 PM »
Hello,

I am new with dynamic blocks. I have a dynamic block called
"sectioncut". I have all the parameters & actions  I need.

The problem is when I use the rotate action, it leaves behind
the grips for my Stretch actions and my Flip action is not working
properly. What am I not doing correctly?

Please help.

I didn't look at the block but if I were to muster a guess I would  say, add the stretch parameter to to rotate action and try that.

Do I create a new rotate action? Or is there a way to add a existing parameter to an action?

you can add to existing.  grab the rotate param, right click and use the selection set option to add objects

To further emphasize the comments above, check out Kate's video on just what you are trying to do.

Nice work Kate as usual.
