I think it would be extremely useful for a custom zone stamp to be able to read the bounding points of the zone as an array of X and Y coordinates. Given a zone is basically a polyline this doesn't seem like it should be too difficult.

This would allow for fills to be drawn through GDL with complete control over how they display in different situations. The fill could react to story settings, model view options etc. and show differently in each situation.

This would also make it possible for the stamp to calculate the maximum width and depth of the zone for simple room dimensions and do various other calculations.

Matt,
I think masterscript's zone tool does this already

Hi Scott,

Thanks for the suggestion.

Just had a quick look at Master Script's zone tool and it only has options to adjust the marker itself, there are no options for fills that trace the shape of the zone etc.
