Dear Community,

I have a question about Library Part Placement. Is it possible after loading a .gsm file into the library to select the imported object and place it on the user's mouse, so the user can place it directly on the model?

Or after import into the Wall tool, would it be possible to select the wall tool with the imported wall and place it on the user's mouse?

Thank you in advance!

It's probably possible, but depends on context, e.g. how/why the object or wall was loaded. I don't think I've implemented that exact workflow, but I have implemented the core ingredients. Might take some exploration, but I expect it will succeed.
