    Standard symbols in Instrument Schedule

    Thanks Pat. I'll have a play with that.

    Standard symbols in Instrument Schedule

    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!

    Standard symbols in Instrument Schedule

    Hi Mark, Thanks for the reply. Could you point me in the right direction for the Typical Symbol widget please? I can't find a reference for it anywhere sorry.
  4. Greetings all, I suspect this is a 'feature request' rather than a 'how to', but I thought I'd start with asking if there is a way to achieve this. It strikes me it would be really useful to include symbols other then Lighting Instruments in an Instrument Schedule. Ancillary items such as lighting consoles, chairs, tables etc that the lighting designer would like to specify for a show. Currently the only way I know to do this is to convert them into lighting instruments. This is fine as a workaround, but it does mean they show up in Lightwright. Not the end of the world, but a little annoying as it's more unhelpful clutter. Is there a way to include standard symbols in an Instrument Schedule (Items that are not lights)? Or alternatively, is there some kind of 'instrument schedule' for displaying symbols and counts for a selection of standard symbols in a drawing? Cheers, Cookie
  5. Hi Mark, No worries. VSS had exactly the same response as you at first. I’ve been in a very slow email exchange with them over this issue. (Two weeks so far...) I’ve yet to get an acceptance from them that this is a bug. It’s very helpful to know others are seeing the same behaviour. Interesting workaound. Thanks for that. I’ll give it a whirl! cheers, Cookie
  6. Hi Mark, Thanks for sending that over (So promptly!) The issue I'm having is with section viewports made from clip cubes: (Your file has standard viewports in it, not section viewports). When I make section viewports made from clip cubes the 3D legend does not display in hidden line, but does in other render modes: File attached. Have a look if you have time and let me know what you think. Cheers, Cookie Test_02.vwx
  7. Hi Mark, That's interesting. Are you able to send a test file?
  8. Likewise, since it's introduction 'section viewport from clip cube' has been indispensable for me. I haven't actually seen confirmation from Vectorworks that they recognise this as a bug yet. In the test file I sent VSS they deleted the section viewport from the clip cube, replaced it with a standard viewport (in elevation) and told me it was fixed...
  9. Hi LX1, No not as of yet. The last message from VSS was nearly a week ago. I've just chased them up again. I presume you can replicate this fault as well? Cheers, Cookie

    Viewport defaults

    Oh well. It was worth a punt. Thanks for letting me know Kevin.

    Viewport defaults

    Hi all, Is it possible to change the 'Advanced Viewport Properties' defaults for all new viewports in a file? I'd like to have 'Adjust Flipped Text' default to off if possible. Thanks!

    Data Tags & Worksheets

    Ah well, that's a little disappointing. Kevin & Jim, thanks for the clarity on the subject. Saves more time I would have spent chasing my own tail. Look forward to this functionality being implemented in the future! All the best

    Data Tags & Worksheets

    Hi all, I'm looking for a little help with Data Tags. These look like a great way to make notes about cable runs on my plans. What I'd like to do is place data tags on my plan and enter in information about cable IDs, lengths etc. I'd then like to make a worksheet of that data. I'm struggling a bit with the worksheet part of this exercise. The 'User-entered Fields' are an easy way of generating fields on the data tags, but I can't see these anywhere on in the worksheet dialogue. I've also looked at linking Field Records with data tags, but haven't had any joy there either. Any assistance much appreciated! Cookie
  14. Hi Charlie, Thanks for having a look at this. Yes it's a section viewport made from a clip cube where the issue is showing up. The file you uploaded displays the 3D legends ok, but it's not a section viewport from the clip cube. I'm trying to use a section viewport to isolate a small part of my drawing. Did VW support offer you any explanations/fixes or workarounds? Interestingly, if I export a PDF of the sheet layer with a section viewport, the 3D Label Legends shows up. It's just on the screen where it's not visible. All the best, Cookie
  15. Hi Mark, Thanks for the quick reply. Good to know I'm not going mad! Will file as a bug. Cheers, Cookie
