For those who are interested:

I opened an IR at GTAC and the reply was that ist is not possible to retrieve the size/width of an customsymbol yet. However the MAsterSymbol's path can be obtained by the following example code


Dim theSession As Session = Session.GetSession()
Dim wp As Part = theSession.Parts.Work
        Dim it As IEnumerator = wp.Annotations.CustomSymbols.GetEnumerator()
        While it.MoveNext
                Dim csb As DraftingCustomSymbolBuilder = wp.Annotations.CustomSymbols.CreateDraftingCustomSymbolBuilder(it.Current)
        End While
