Is it possible to define multiple objects to follow the same operands in the Merit Function Editor?

Hi, I am using the NPXL operand since I don’t want all my object positions to exceed the value I set. However,  I have quite a lot of objects (Around 100), it is possible to not manually define for each object and instead apply it for all the objects simultaneously. (I.e each NPXL operand I have to change the Object Column value)

Thanks for the guidance. Greatly appreciated!

Hi Kai,


Unfortunately, you cannot do that with a single NPXL operand. However, you can create a macro to automatize the work.

Macros are relatively simple pieces of code written in an almost human readable format that can perform routine tasks automatically.

I would advise to read this article to get more familiar with macros, and then try to have a look at this thread and see if you can write your macro yourself.

I’m happy to help you along the way should you have any question.

Take care,



Thanks once again!
