Using skill, is there a way to zoom to the selection set?
Check out the axlZoomToDbid() command and see if that will work for you.
Oh - it does a list too :) - Will give it a shot.
Indeed it works - however it's not a very tight zoom. Is there a notion of "zoom percentage" in Allegro?
Side note: AutoCAD uses a large public variable list which controls behavior of certain actions - does Allegro have a similar thing?
axlZoomToDbid() puts the selected objects extents in about 20% of the display. You can use axlWindowBoxGet(), update the values to your desired zoom factor and then use axlWindowBoxSet().
