    Tip please on family creation

    Hello RFO people,
    I want to drag family and stretch it. As a generic rectangular model.
    But cant find online how to make it. Picture = example.
    So i want that drag arrow would appear on my generic model and i could stretch it in my project, is it possible? and how to do that?
    Cheers

    Yep, this is stolen......err........borrowed from Martijn in another thread:

    "Yep, and it's quite easy too (as soon as you know the trick):

    Select the refplanes of the with the Reference Left and Right (Слева and Справа) and change the value in the Properties setting "Is Reference" to "Weak Reference". In general, a rule of thumb here that Refplanes constrain the grips more, the stronger they are. There's a kind of hierarchy in them:

    Front/Back/Left/Right
    Strong Reference
    Weak Reference
    No Reference

    Weak Reference let's you still use the Grips while Strong Reference and the F/B/L/R/C-refplanes will constrain the values of parameters. "

      Thanks for the creds...
      BTW: "No Reference" looses both the shape handles and the possibility to align to the family created refplanes (just to make the list complete )

                  as i said if you make the length instance parameter it sould working left right stretching. you just have to select the object to see the arrows in project.

                    yup, works for me too (2012, but I don't think that behaviour has changed much). Make Length instance parameter and you're off...
