  1. I found that if you select the instrument and then set their line attribute to none in the attributes pallette. Then the leader lines disappear. They remain visible when the instrument is selected. But disappear after deselecting.
  2. Maybe you can use find and modify to copy the values found in de user adress / universe to the new fields. also a Autoplot function called copy field tot field could help put everything in the right place.
  3. Hi, I am currently expierencing this problem and am wondering if there is a fix or workaround for this? A collegue has instrument that where once placed in the active class and remain in that class in the Visualization Palette.
  4. Either, you have to move all of the parts of the legend by hand. Or you you can group all of the items in your Label Legend layout. In this case there is only one handle to move everything at once. However there are some issues with grouped legends you might run into. you can not select multiple blue handles of an not grouped legend. Data Tags will give you more freedom of placement. They are worth trying out.
  5. Hi In this topic I learned how to extract the original toolset pic from a workspace file. I shared the rigging and event design pics in one of my posts there.
  6. attached is a screenshot of a detail in the render. You can see the empty geometry where the texture should be.
  7. Hi, Since version 2019 we can layout 3D label legends like we can with 2d Legends. I like this, since My 3D label now looks the same as it does in 2d and I use the same classes that I use in 2D. However each time that I enter the "edit fields" window of that legend all fields that are used in 3D are automatically classed in Lighting-Label-3D. So now my layout atributed are reverted to the 3D class. I would like the fields of the 3D label to have the same class as the 2d fields. Channel class is channel class etc. There is no need for a seperate 3D class either!
  8. Hi, I regularly render my files by starting a render from the Nomad App. This worked really well and fast. However lately I have experienced random textures not being rendered and leaving empty geometry in my PDF's. They render fine locally, but not when I start it from nomad or cloud services. I have just filed a support request, but am wondering if other users have experienced this too and maybe know what I can do to prevent it? Can't post file here due to confidentiality. Regards, Sebastiaan
  9. Since version 2019 we are able to grouxp label legend layouts so they can be moved all in one with one handle. However I found out that when this is done they now behave as rotating legends, exept for the fact that the layout gets messy now. See attached images and testfile. Can this be filed to be fixed? Regards, Sebastiaan
  10. Hi, The spotlight preference "automatically assign the class of lighting devices" does not work anymore. The class that is created is not the value of the field that I set but instead it is "0". See attached image. Mac OS Mojave on VW 2020 tried on converted 2019 file at first, restarted the program. Tried on new clean 2020 file same result. Please file as bug. Example file is attached. Regards, Sebastiaan assign sptlight class bug.vwx
  11. I am a bit curious what a PD or dimmer looks like in Lightwright. I played with the demo a bit but I couldn’t really get through it. could someone show a screenshot of what the output is in LW for a PD and a dimmer?
  12. A friend of mine is working on a Mac application that does exactly what you described above. Except for the fact that it is an external app. So far I have used excel to make my dimmer and PSU sheets and spend ages on macro’s for automation of the process. This did result in a fast workflow. Ofcourse it would be magnificent if it where built into VWX. But if it does what you need fats and effective then that’s great too isn’t it?
