  1. Hi Sam, of course more pars could be in one channel. It’s very common to put two or more conventionals in one dimmer circuit. But in that case in my paperwork they would share the same channel number. And I want them to be in one line in my patch lists in stead of split. the topic starter said that LW treats conventional fixtures with the same channel number as one fixture and that is logical to me if they are on the same dimmer circuit. Edit: Sorry didn’t really read your post wel, yes indeed one could apply the same adress to multiple dimmer channels. Might be a rare case where one would need the parameters very badly. But in my years that has not occurred yet so I would not mis that feature in the software.
  2. Sounds logical to me actually. If the 6-bar takes up 6 dimmer channels then in the desk it would be 6 channel numbers also.
  3. In this topic you can find a tutorial made by @markdd on how to make a multi circuit fixture. Not shure if that solves you Lightwright question as I do not use that.
  4. hi @Yordan Kostadinov, thank you for your response. I would be very happy if the “assign legend properties to selected” would work on grouped 2d and 3D legends. so I would say go for that one! It would be the most flexible solution. Also in that case I would ask you to take the 3D label position away from the eyedropper again so this will only work on 2D labels again. Then this tool will also be usable again. I am aware of the create label legend from selected. But that solution requires more clicks then the eye dropper or the legend properties command. Therefore it is not my preferred workflow. regards, Sebastiaan
  5. 1 that is in Mac computers. You can right click on the vectorworks application and then click show package content en browse to the image file. There is a .wvr file inside the application that you can also show package contents. also throughout the installation in the plugins folder for instance there are a couple more .wvr files you can explore also. but someone in e vectorworks & spotlight user group on Facebook recently shared a Dropbox link that has the 2020 icons. That might be even easier.
  6. Hi @Yordan Kostadinov & @klinzey, I was wondering what is your opinion about the eyedropper tool and label positions. Do you agree the 2D and 3D label positions should each be transferred separately an not simultaneously? hope you are ok and healthy.
  7. Just tested 2020 SP3 and very happy to see that all of the issues in this topic where solved! For me, as of now, Label Legends are officially amazing! Thank you @Yordan Kostadinov and your team for listening. There is one significant thing that I found. Using the eye dropper to transfer "Label Position" transfers both the 2D and the 3D label position at the same time. This is undesirable, they should not be moved at the same time by one action. The eydropper tool should have a separate check box for 2D and 3D label postions. For festival stages I always present crews with both a front view and a top / plan view of the plan. And then my top/plan labels would become messed up when using the eyedropper to move 3D labels and vice versa. Also still hoping for Dynamic text / Define Tag fields in Spotlight label legends 😉, that would make them ultimate!
  8. Also being able to select which sheet layers you want to cloud render in stead of all of them. Would be very useful
  9. Besides that I think that some of your requests are useful. One thing you can already do now. you can put your workspace in a workgroup folder that you sync with Dropbox or other cloud service. Then your updated workspace wille be available on all of your machines.
  10. yup time to learn new things. Sit it out, make the most of it, and try to come out stronger 💪
  11. There is a wishlist topic about smartpaste in the request section. Maybe best upvote and up reply that one.
  12. You can also extrude a square half the height of your diamond. Then use the split tool to slice it into a triangle. Do this from front and side. that creates a piramid. Mirror it downward and add solids and theres your diamond
  13. I just did another quick try, you could use an artistic renderworks mode. Attached screenshot are from a circle on it's side. First an openGL and then the artistic renderworks with a screenshot of the setting. Not sure what that would do to your arm rests, but you could give it a try. OpenGL Artistic
  14. you can turn off “use shadows” in the background render settings of the viewport. also you can turn of ambient occlusion in the lighting options of the viewport. Edit: just tried it myself and that is not the fix you want sorry.
  15. The Netherlands all events nation wide are cancelled till end of March. Afraid it is going to take a bit longer than two weeks. I wish all that are affected strength and wisdom. I hope we can come out stronger from this situation.
