  1. Hi @symo, An alternative is to use a place-holder symbol for the vertical position (in grey below). I turn off the class of the actual lights. The schematic view is on it's own class. It's because of schematic views, and this issue, that I've started to class lights by position. Makes it much easier to hide/view vertical positions without having lots of additional Design Layers. Hope that helps. Cheers, Cookie (P.S. Hope all's well in Aotearoa)
  2. Thanks @Nikolay Zhelyazkov . Shall let you know if it happens again.
  3. Hi @Nikolay Zhelyazkov , Thanks for the response. Interestingly having made no further changes to the title block, the third time I sent renders off to the cloud servers they came back with the date in the correct manual order. Perhaps a bit of a glitch there? Cheers, Cookie
  4. Hi all, I'm using Cloud Publish to render some PDFs of a job. When I publish them the plot date changes from UK format to US format. The plot date in my title block is in UK format as below DD/MM/YYYY: I tried changing to manual entry from Auto. They come back every time as MM/DD/YYYY: Any thoughts much appreciated! Cheers, Cookie
  5. Hi Mark, Ok, great to know at least that's how it is for now. Let's hope it's on the VW to-do list! Cheers, Cookie
  6. Greetings all, Does anyone know if it's possible to see Data Visualisation in Schematic Views? It hasn't worked in my initial testing, but always happy to entertain the concept that I have missed something! Cheers, Cookie
  7. Hi Sebastiaan, It would certainly expand the functionality for me massively.
  8. Greetings all, Still wrapping my head around Data Tags and how best to utilise them in my workflow. Is it possible to have the fill colour of a Data Tag dynamically change depending on the value of one of its fields? In simple terms: If I had a Data Tag field called 'Colour' which had a value of 'Blue' could I get the Data Tag to automatically change to blue? Thanks for the help as ever and have a great New Year everyone. Cheers, Cookie
  9. Indeed, the price of popularity! Well it's a niche market, but know your efforts past, present and I hope future are appreciated.
  10. I'll second that. Really enjoyed them when I discovered them. @Pat Stanford, any plans to do some more?
  11. Hi Yordan, Fantastic! Thanks for that. Just what I was looking for. Cheers, Cookie
  12. Ah I see. Thanks Rob. And once snapped to the centre line the light can only be moved directly up or down to the cord otherwise the light once again snaps to centre? This does make every light move a two action procedure. No way to turn this off for those of us not utilising Braceworks?
  13. Greeting all, I have a query about lighting instruments snapping to trusses when they are converted to hanging positions: If I drag a light onto a truss once the truss is converted into a hanging position, I get a red snap line down the centre of the truss. The light wants to snap there even if I hover over the edges of the truss. I've tried this will all the snapping options on and off, and the behaviour is the same. Is there a way to disable this? Obviously I would like the lights on the cords of the truss and not down the centre line. Many thanks as ever for your help. Cheers, Cookie
  14. Ah, I see. Thanks for the direction there. Unfortunately it only offers one symbol to be selected and displayed. Oh well. I'll add it to the wish list. Thanks for the help!
