  1. Regularly I get frustrated. Very understandable.
  2. Well I sometimes am irritated when people post their frustrations with exclamation marks and capitals. Maybe a more polite approach to the developers would be in place. Shouldn’t have posted that in public. But too late I already did.

    schematic view issues

    Glad to hear the issue is being addressed. This is one feature that excited me when it was announced on teaser Tuesday. So i’m Looking forward to improvements! Thanx Btw in my file just about every action took several minutes to complete. Creating, moving and deleting the schematic view.

    Schematic view - thoughts?

    I am principally against the use of DLVP’s for raked trusses. I like the workflow of displaying views of the 3D model with 3D labels and or data tags. I was looking forward to using schematic views as one way to display raked trussing. However at it’s introdiucion it does not function as it should. Seems as if it is designed to only work properly with one piece of truss. And it does not work with hanging positions. Which is cracy cause vwx had lured us into working with hanging positions especially since Braceworks.

    schematic view issues

    I just tried a straight truss 4 pieces of interal 3mtr and one lighting instrument. If I move the instrument in the schematic view, the instrument in the raked truss does not move accordingly Then a schematic view of a non hanging position with a circle truss and one instrument Edit: test file attached Untitled 1.vwx

    schematic view issues

    Hi Thanks for your reply. I tried not creating a hanging position with a eurotruss circle. By just selecting the pieces of the circle. And this resulted in all the cuts of the circle displayed next to each other in the schematic view instead of in a circle config. I don’t mean to be a smart ass or anything. But the whole workflow of vwx and Braceworks revolves around the use of hanging positions. How could this great new feature not be designed to work with hanging positions?

    schematic view issues

    I just did a quick little test for schematic views. I created a hanging position from 4 pieces of truss.And 1 lighting instrument. I choose to use geometry for the hanging position. Creating the schematic view takes multiple minutes of beachball to complete. Once the schematic view is there only 1 out of 4 pieces of truss is displayed in the schematic view. (the one that has the instrument attached.) Moving a schematic view takes another couple of minutes of beachball. I can not rake a hanging position that has no instruments attached unless I check draw 3d only. But checking draw 3D only makes the schematic view not visible. Deleting a schematic view takes another couple of minutes of beachball. Can this be looked at?
  8. Hi, A problem that I already found in v2019 and just tried in v2020 and still persists. When the fields of a 3D label are grouped in the 3D Layout then a problem occurs when the instrument is plan rotated with a value between 90 and 270 degrees, then the 3D label flips. Flipping the legend from the OIP does not resolve it. See attached screenshot. Can this be listed as a bug?
  9. Hi, When the fields of a 3D label are grouped in the 3D Layout then the leader lines do not follow the 3D label. This was already the case in 2019 and just tried v2020 and the same behaviour is present. see attached screenshot. Also the 3D label can not anymore be moved by using right click:"assign label legend properties to selected" In 2018 it was passible to move 3D labels in this way. Can this be listed as a bug? By the way, I would love to have a simple checkbox to turn leader lines off.

    [3D Label Legend] Leader Lines

    yes please, also in grouped 3d labels the lines jump in all directions when moved. Still present in v2020

    v.2020 now available

    DWG export of rotated lighting instruments works properly now. Thank you developement team!! DMX patching is a pleasant surprise too!
  12. Finally! I too have asked for this many times. Thank you very much!

    Spotlight Numbering

    I personally think the check marking should be done in a second pop up window. So the main spotlight numbering window only shows the desired and chosen fields. A + and a - at the bottom of this window to add and remove fields. Also no highlighting untill a field is actually clicked on.

    Vertical Truss - Front on symbols

    Oh yes absolutely it all ends up on paper or PDF eventually! Just the way to it is different. Personally I am principally against this use of DLVP’s. I believe the model should be in 3D as it will be in real life and we need techniques to present that on sheet layers. Or to share this with others (perhaps non vwx people). Not the other way around. But I might be a minority.
