LPub and multi-part parts


LPub and multi-part parts
#1
Hi,

I'm relatively new to making instructions with LPub. I did some small models, but nothing more.
I'm now working on a far bigger project for someone else (it's a Technic model with +/- 2200 parts).

But, I discovered a "problem"; multi-part parts (or whatever they're called) like pf-motors. LPub shows all the different parts from the (in this case) xl motor in the parts list and BOM. How can I avoid this? I just want a normal one-piece motor in the parts list and BOM?

I know it's possible, because I've seen it many times in other instructions.


Thanks in advance!

You have to use the SUB meta command for that.
Something like

0 !LPUB PLI BEGIN SUB 58121.dat 71
1 16 0 0 110 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 59154.dat
1 72 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 59155.dat
1 25 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 47157.dat
1 0 0 -42 108 0 0 1 -0.707 2.121 0 -0.707 -2.121 0 s\58124s03.dat
0 !LPUB PLI END

Well, it works partly. It does add a complete version of the motor to the parts list, but it still lists all the different parts too...
Is it place sensitive (does it matter where I add the code)?
