Hi, I'd like to add myself to the group requesting automatic or programmatic updates to reference components.  I don't want to do this by hand in any way, I need Grasshopper to be able to kick the update by itself, ideally by a boolean input.

Hope we'll one day see this feature, thanks!

@Archy Bloom, this will eventually be bundled with the next update of Elefront, but here is a link for the plugin.

Hi, Ramon. Is there a way to show elefront attributes panel in rhino like the way you showed in morpheus webinar?

Comment by Ramon van der Heijden on October 9, 2017 at 7:34am
Hi Jun Wang. You can select all reference components, right click anywhere on the canvas (not on a component) and click "enable". This will trigger a refresh on all selected components. Hope it helps.

Super helpful! Much appreciated, guess I really need to look into keyboard shortcuts again!

Aside from that, I still think having a bool input to control the update exactly like the bake node would be really nice, if you are considering new features for the next update.

Jun Luke Wang,
Usually i just use the F5 key to recompute the whole definition, or enable selected components with the spacebar menu, which also recomputes them and any dependabt nodes. Quicker than using the right mouse menu and selecting update component. Hope this helps

Thank you so much for this plugin, really a game changer!

Quick question: is there a way to turn on automatic update on all reference components (reference by type, reference by block names, etc.), or give them a bool input that I can trace to a single button to control together? I haven't really look extensive into this, but if I start using the plugin to automatically updating 15 different facade panel variations as different blocks based on one base block, it would kinda defeat the purpose if I have to hit update 15 times? Please correct me if I'm wrong or if there is a feature I'm not noticing.

thnx again

Hi Ramon, thanks for the add-on! But i found little bug. In component "Define Text" don't work justification.
