Environment Information
At Rill Architects we run ArchiCAD on macOS. If you work at Rill, this is your stuff. If you don't, but you work in ArchiCAD, you may find something interesting. Anybody else, I don't know.

Location: 01 General / 1 Graphic Symbols

UPDATE: Backsaved version for AC9.

Same features as the AC9 version, with a simplified interaction for getting the loop off center.

Cutline JM10

Loop edit

By default, the parameter Keep Loop Centered is on. If you stretch the line, the loop stays centered. You can move the loop using the hotspot, which turns Keep Loop Centered off. By moving the hotspot, you are changing the parameter Loop Dist From Start. If you stretch the start end of the line, the loop moves. If you stretch the other end, it stays put.

The basic interaction is: Place the line, adjust the length, move the loop, done.

The Loop Height is graphically editable. Change the proportions of the loop with the Width Factor parameter. Higher numbers give wider loops.

Mask edit
The Mask can be turned off. The width of the mask comes from the object's width parameter. The mask length can be graphically adjusted at each end, so the line can be longer than the mask. The width and mask adjustments are edited together.

In addition to the curve above, the Shape can be pointy.

Turn on Double for two cutlines with the still-optional mask between them.

With the double cutline, the editing spot for the mask length adjustment moves to the center of the width.

Angle slopes the lines. 90ยบ means no slope. If the object is angled, you stretch the width with the hotspots at the center of the cutlines.

With Double and Angle on, you can't move the loop without first manually turning off Keep Loop Centered. I don't know why this is, and I think it's a bug. I.e., not my bug.
