Hello Hans,
Jeremy has done a very nice job of making this straightforward. You can do this quite easily from within the compact.xml detector description.

First, define the limits via:

<limitset name="cal_limits">
<limit name="step_length_max" particles="*" value="5.0" unit="mm" />

This has to come before the <detectors> element.

Then, assign them to a volume:

<detector id="2" name="EMBarrel" type="CylindricalBarrelCalorimeter" readout="EcalBarrHits">
<dimensions inner_r = "EmBarrelInnerRadius" outer_z = "EmBarrelZMax" />
<layer repeat="1">
<slice material = "Silicon" thickness = "0.032*cm" sensitive = "yes" limits="cal_limits" />
<slice material = "Copper" thickness = "0.005*cm" />
<slice material = "Kapton" thickness = "0.030*cm" />
<slice material = "Air" thickness = "0.033*cm" />

In this example, I have limited the max step length for all particles in the sensitive silicon layer of an EM calorimeter to 5mm.

Please let me know if you encounter any difficulties or have any further questions.
