    Default Stretch Both Ways about origin of block Using XY Parameter

    Hi

    I have made a block that uses XY Parameter to stretch an object.

    Although this is only part of a another block to keep it simple!!

    I want to flip the block and keep the object in the same relative place.

    Is there a way to stretch the object both ways about the origin.
    I have tried using a couple of extra stretch actions as with the linear parameter and stretch action but I can't get it to work.

    I've had another thought .....
    If not, is there a way to move the flip actions in line with the stretch action to keep the flip axis in the centre of the object.

    Hope someone out there can help
    advance thx if so.

    Geoff

    Actions like stretch and move have properties for their direction and multiplier. So, an action need not be in the same direction or distance as the parameter that operates it. Also, a parameter can operate more than one action at a time. You can even chain one parameter to another.

    The XY parameter could have additional stretch actions moving in different directions.

    The XY parameter could have a move action to move the flip parameter, with a multiplier of 0.5 to only move it half as far as the stretch action, thus keeping it centered.

    Thx MMccall

    Used the move action!
    I was failing to select the parameter as well as the action when asked to select items.

    Much appreciated
