"Explode" a shape
« on: May 17, 2011, 03:43:03 PM »
Can I have a shape that when placed into the drawing actually
places 4 shapes?

Example is a shape of a CCTV camera, that really is a kit of
Lens, Housing, Mounting, cable.

Thanks, Moshe

You could either group the shapes together, so they come as one shape,
or you could create some VBA code, that is started from the OnDrop-Event of the first shape and that drops the three other shapes by automatition.
