    well, in that case, perhaps they'll change my request into a bug report.

    Vectorworks 2019 Structure Member Tool

    I've put in a request to add that tool to Spotlight. Since it's now needed to really use the new bridle tools, etc... Hopefully, they'll add it.

    Vectorworks 2019 Structure Member Tool

    I do have designer. It's a good point that spotlight should have this if VW is adding these house points tool. I'll put in a request. I found it here. I don't have a way of seeing what's in Spotlight only version of VW.

    Creating Hoist Layout Stickers

    I create a worksheet, export into csv file. then I use the avery.com website to import the csv and match an avery label. Not automated, but I get to fidget with the outcome along the way.

    Vectorworks 2019 Structure Member Tool

    Are we talking about doing this? I had to add the tool into my workspace for the beam.
  6. Other than custom building these stairs, is there a way to have the stair tool build this? I've got the multiple landings etc. It's the angle of the steps that I've not figured out. I'm tracing an Acad 2D drawing and making a 3D version. Bonus Question, These...

    Line Array with Bracewroks?

    I run into these issues often for various reasons. I find it easiest to add a simple point load at the same location and ignore the weights in the array tool. Handy also when the audio dept. changes gear and doesn't update the array tool with accurate weights.

    2019 / Bridle Testing Strange behaviours

    For #1, use the "Reset Braceworks IDs" under the Braceworks pulldown menu. I've not opened your file yet as I'm in the middle of other things. I'll take a look and post if someone else doesn't beat me to it.

    Brilliant VW keyboard shortcut

    @Tom Pearce Speaking of great things, Tom's VW Keyboard Layout tool is also fantastic. I've just sent Tom an email asking to see if he can update as it's crashing on my current Mac OS.

    Cramped hoist labels problem

    Hoist hooks 6" higher than truss

    As Brandon mentioned, this is a bug, now reported. As for sling height, sometimes I have rigs without slings. As mentioned, I want the "load trim" to actually match the number in the "load trim" field so that fly schedules reflect desired heights, etc. I've figured out other workarounds in the mean time. Thanks, Scott
  12. I hope so as well. I'm working on a drawing right now that has over 270 10' sticks of truss. I have quotes for rentals and the vendor who carries another brand has a wicked price, but I'd have to change everything. Not that a direct replace function would work, they have 8' sticks for me.

    Automatic Data exchange with LW keeps stopping

    Though true, the cloud service doesn't keep the files locked. The files get locked while the file it syncing with any/all local hard drive folders. So, if I have three computers with locally synced folders, anytime any of them are doing an active sync with said file, that file gets locked. Then unlocked when done. The chances of the xml, Lightwright, VW to done an active update of any of these files at the same time, across several computers is fairly high. If anyone of them gets an error, it may turn off the connection, etc. Best, Scott

    Attaching speakers to hanging positions

    I can do this and just have one speaker. But prefer to use the actual boxes the Audio guy wants. Good workaround though. Thanks, Scott

    There's also a Braceworks forum thread here on the forums.
