Is there a particular reason you can’t just use the Keystroke to apply after placement: setting of Place Marker to tell it to change to the correct layer?
Thanks for the response.
Yes. Depending on the situation, the new Marker counter would need to be rotated 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 hexsides. The “Keystroke to apply after placement:” setting only seems to allow a single command (which I cannot figure out how to apply repeatedly). So, yes I can get it to rotate to the first hexside but not to subsequent ones. Is there a way to make this work?
The Can Rotate trait exists for handling rotation. I’d recommend using that instead of faking up rotation using Layers.
Thanks for the reply. In VASL, we don’t rotate any of our 1/2" counters that I can think of (maybe some guns and SW counters), only the 5/8. For the 1/2" info counters, we try to keep the text facing up. I don’t think users would be happy to see the first VMB counter shown below rotated 180% to the bottom position instead of what they see now which is the last image…
Set a Global Property to the number of repeats you want (before triggering the Place Marker trait), then have the Keystroke to apply after placement: trigger a Trigger Action that repeats that many times.
