  1. Scott. My common workflow is to place one summary with all of the devices used in my drawing. Following that I will copy/paste additional summaries and use Filter to refine the information that is shown. It is here that things begin to slow down. I would say I have around 15 symbols in total.
  2. Instrument Summary tool continues to be lagging heavily still on v2022 SP3. It's not tenable to wait upwards of 1-2min for VW to stop beach balling.. Can anyone relate? I'm running right now on a 14" MBP M1 Pro.
  3. Any thoughts as to why Absolute Address would not be visible as an available field when exporting the *.xml for Lightwright exchange? In a new drawing it appears correct, but is missing in my working file. New Drawing Missing in my working file.
  4. Importing the obj direct from RenderPeople preserves the mapping. https://renderpeople.com/free-3d-people/
  5. I am receiving the following error when importing an *.obj I created in Cinema4D R21. What is odd is the image is residing in the same directory as the *.obj, so i don't understand why it won't import. The model is also not maintaining its UV Mapping. Any thoughts here? @EAlexander @Ethan R.
  6. I seem to recall a script floating around for quickly changing DPI on sheet layers.. am I crazy? I'm working on testing render styles on viewports in a sheet layer and would like to quickly switch between a low and high resolution DPI. Is this possible via a Vectorscript?
  7. I'm trying to add the Truss Record to my own Base symbol. Mostly successful there, but i'm having issues with the snap for adding truss to the base. They are offset. Without changing the origin of the truss, how would I setup my base to center align the truss?
  8. @bbudzon Is there a timeline for when the ‘Send to Vision’ command will be replaced? I believe users should be encouraged to use Export ESC rather than ‘Send to Vision’. The ‘Send..’ command runs counter to the workflow being pushed with MVR and in my opinion ingrains bad workflow practices.
  9. Following. @Ethan R. @VWX USER 1I believe there is a Bell 🔔 indicator in the Project Sharing layers window that displays when layers are out of sync in your working drawing. Would be great if that were visible elsewhere outside the menu.
  10. Can you export an *.obj from blender?
  11. Curious to hear what other people do.. I've been stuck in letters-numbers, indicating department and plate no. (L1, R1 .. Lighting 1.. Rigging 1.. so on an so forth.) #1 is usually an Overview plated, followed by details of specific areas (#2..#3.. etc)
  12. I've frequently encountered issues with mouse clicks not registering when attempting to execute commands such as [Select; Flyover; ellipsis in Properties window] in Vision 2020 on my iMac. @bbudzon Is this a known issue?
  13. @BrandonSPP Is there a page or sticky announcement that includes fixture modes that are updated / added to the "Lights.wad" library on a weekly basis? c
  14. Throwing this out here as there have been some recent postings regarding Webinars on the Vectorworks Spotlight Usergroup on Facebook. It appears that they are only available to Service Select members in the UK. This is frustrating at face value because the Facebook group has users from across the globe. As a Service Select subscriber in the US, how do I access the content of these Webinars?
