Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Explaining actions, part of Using Dynamic Blocks in AutoCAD for Mac.
- We're now in a new section of our dynamic blocks…for AutoCAD for Mac course where we're going to be…looking at how the actions relate to the parameters.…In the previous section, we placed all of our parameters…in our little window block with the hole in it there.…And now what we're going to do is look…at applying actions to those parameters.…So what I'm going to do, first of all,…is I'm going to select the blocks, so that's a simple click…and a crossing selection like so,…and once it's selected, I just double-click…on the selected block and it takes us straight…into the Block Editor.…
Just going to pan a little bit there,…and you can see all of our named parameters…that we created in the previous section.…Now what I'm going to do here is I'm going to work…with the flip-over parameter and add a flip action to it.…Before I do that, though, what I want to do is,…I want to add what is called a "base point parameter."…So that's over here on the Ribbon,…and I'm going to come down here and go to base point.…Now the base point parameter is going…
