Since there are more than one symbol in the symbol library, the selected one on the script screen will need to be replaced with the selected one in the symbol library, so you have to make a choice here. The selected object should be symbolized first, then two symbols to replace must be selected and the Replace Symbol elevation must be given. Apart from Action JavaScript etc. I have no idea if a custom code can do this.

Salut,

Un autre exemple avec un script un peu plus élaboré.

variable redim = true; le symbole prend les dimensions de l'objet sélectionné.

Anto,

Je n'ai pas de capture vidéo,

Il suffit de sélectionner les objets à remplacer et de lancer le script.

en ayant au préalable précisé une plage (départ, nombre) les symboles doivent se suivre.

C'est simple, dans mon exemple je choisis une plage du rang 4 jusqu'àu rang 10 dans le panneau Symbols.

Maybe better do not use symbols, but use only objects? For example, place 10 objects behind the workspace. And it will be the same, only without using of symbols. Is this possible in a script?
