You might want a "virtual object type", but this nickname plugin is only an alias name of an object type.

Not "virtual object type"

I mean "creating new object with setting string name or whatever" since it helps to maintain the control of instances.

@Joannesalfa

It had been done in current rex_nickname plugin if you only want to "creating new object by string name".
Picking instances by string name is another issue.

Do all the objects have to be on the layout already for it to work? Can I create an object from a different layout?

@alspal

nickname behavior only works while at least one instance had been created.
Otherwise, user could use "Action:Assign nickname" in nickname plugin to assign the name string manually. After that, user could create instance by string name at any layout.

@tdcostas

There are 2 possible of solutions-
A. Uses "Action:Create instance into family" to create an instance and put it into a family SOL. Then change the size or angle by actions of this family. ( sample capx )

B. Get this created instance UID by "Expression:LastCreatedInstUID". User might change properties of this instance by rex_uid2prop plugin. Only common properties (x,y,angle,opacity) could be assigned. ( sample capx )
