    2D Symbol Insertion Fix - Vectorworks 2011

    PVA - Jim

    The attached plug-ins will resolve the following issues:

    • Accessories in 2D will always be at the center of the associated light and the user will not be able to move them. 
    • If you select “Set 3d Orientation” in the lighting device and set an X and Y rotation the 2D geometry may become deformed.
    • If the symbol contains a rotated rectangle it is drawn incorrectly in 2D.

    This fix will:

    • Allow the user to correctly place and move the accessory.
    • Only apply the 3D rotation parameters to the 3D geometry.
    • Fix the problem with rotated rectangles.
