    3d Label Legend

    Something is very strange. Now mather what other file I import your legend the leader lines just reappear. In your file the are in visible, I open a blank file and import the legend and they are back. Very strange

    3d Label Legend

    Thanks, wil now try to make your legend work in my layout. I do use data tags for spotlight labeling, I love the way they work too! But I didn't now I could use them in a front view also. How did you do that? Edit: Already found out just add them when in front view.

    3d Label Legend

    Hey Mark, I am pretty sure that being able to group the fields is new. I'am sure that i have tried this before in my quest for 1 handle movement of labels. I just can still not find how i can make the leader lines dissapear. I have set pen setting in all label classes to none but they remain present. I attached a test file can you see what's wrong?

    3d Label Legend

    So months after release of vwx 19 i finally have some time to renew my 3d Labels with the new functions.. -In my label i do not use containers, but just fields. I found that when I group the field in the 3d Layout that I can then move all 3d fields at once. However at a certain point the leader lines jump into a random direction. See attached image I tried setting the class pen color to none as described in this topic, but it doesn't work. The leader lines stay, also when I do use containers. -Also I can no longer move the label legends by using right click-> assign label legend properties to selected. This only works when use single label is checked, however you then lose your layout. -There used to be a function to use 2d containers in your 3d label. In VW18 I used to concatenate fields and then use this function to create really neat 3d Labels. This is now not possibles anymore. -When the text fields are not grouped in my layout i then get 5 separate fields in 3d with 5 different leader lines. Why? Who would want so many leader lines going across the place. @markdd do you see any workarounds to my issues? I'am a bit sad, since numbering improved so much, but what I liked about 3d labels is now broken. However if only those leader lines would work properly in the grouped fields it would be great again. Still at the same time I think spotlight labels should work as data tags both in 2d and 3d.
  5. We definitely need this! there should be sliders in de IOP to control pan and tilt but also for all other parameters such as dimers, blades etc... And just add a check box for controlling if the instrument needs to listen to the focus point or the OIP settings. This way both can exist.

    Step by step to make a 4-bar instrument

    thank you very much @markdd!!!

    Step by step to make a 4-bar instrument

    A bar with four parcans on it and a mutli cable connection so one can patch each parcan individually. In the Netherlands we call them fourbars or sixbars.

    Combined Circuit Name/Number

    Thanks for the tip @markdd ! Labels Legends should take over the layout editing and handling of the Data Tag tool. I love the fact that I can move the whole data tag containing multiple record fields and layout at once!
  9. Hi, I am trying to make a 4 Bar Lighting instrument by using the multi circuit command. But as I am trying nothing really happens to my fourbar that make me think it behave like a fourbar. Could someone give me a step by step on how I should create one? Thank you! Sebastiaan

    BridleTool a mess

    Hi @Moritz Staffel Thank you, indeed the "use structural member....." was unchecked in my file. However now the bridle can not snap to the middle of a structural member in auto insertion mode, it will only snap to the end of it. I can make a bridle in the middel of a member with click mode, but then still the above issues are still present. Changing the bridle configuraction manually is a workaround, but would be great if some of these issues could be improved in a service pack? @Martijn Wingelaar Maybe we should ask the developers for improvements of the tools instead of calling their work a mess and useless?
  11. No this does not resolve the issue. Seems like the problem is whithin the instrument summary as the the box also resizes after the refresh.

    BridleTool a mess

    @Moritz Staffel @Jim Wilson I am now trying to make a bridle connect to a structural member. This is not working. The bridle tool will not connect to the structural member i made. Am I doing something wrong? Can you update us on when the Bridle tool will work properly? This topic became quiet after my last questions.
  13. Hi, I have a few files that where saved in VW19 SP0 and now have a flaw in the instrument summary. If I open the file now (since I updated to sp1) the Typical Label Legend dissapears as soon as I refresh the instrument summary. Before refreah: After Refresh: Anyone has any ideas? I am running VWX 19 on Mac OS Sierra. Thank you, Sebastian

    BridleTool a mess

    @Moritz Staffel The structural member tool does not work at this moment. as described in the topic below. can I make anything else behave as a beam as opposed to a point? Sure. It starts with the very long bridle all the way to the floor: If i then set the downleg back to 0 then the apex jumps to 0 again also. Then I change the apex height to 1000cm and it automatically reinserts a down leg of 1000. If i remove the down leg then the bridle becomes long to the floor again. However if I have the simple 3d part unchecked, then I get very weird behaviour. The parts of the bridle go all over the screen:

    BridleTool a mess

    @Moritz Staffel With drop lengths set to 0 i get the following bridle all the way to the ground. This is when not snapping to a hoist. I think when not snapping to a hoist, the plugin should make the shortest possible bridle length that angle restrictions allow for. Also it does seem to listen to the maxumun leg length. Also can it bee that the bridle plugin does not listen to my document units? It seems like it listens to mm while i have my units set to cm. When I set the preferences to something that makes sense in cm then it will not allow me to make a bridle. In isometric view I do seem to be able to snap to a hoist in two legged view however, then the bridle lays on the floor and is not attached to the rigging point annymore:
