News + History

Closing development

This object works stable up to ArchiCAD 11. I have closed further development of this object and have merged its script with another heavy large object for drawing titles and stamps. Originally it was developed separately because of the limited number of parameters available in ArchiCAD 6. The new object will work from ArchiCAD 15 up. But it will be a longer time under construction. So this finished paper frame will be kept up to date and stays available.The project page of the new object you find here
