    Problems with insert connection tool

    Hi, Have you tried posting this in Braceworks. You could try using insert drop in the Braceworks menu.
  2. Thats worth Noting 'screen aligned'. I shall remember that. Thanks Kareen!
  3. You could just copy the 3d attributes of the symbol into the workspace and convert them to polygons and then paste them into the 2d attribute of the symbol. Fix the symbol rather than the legend. Avoid using top view as you have limited graphic control of the appearance of your plot.
  4. OK, so you need to specify by fixture upon which view you would like the 3d lable legend displayed. I will attach a screen grab.... Bad news... Top isn't an option. Why do you need a 3d lable legend in a 2d top view?
  5. Ah with you, hang on, I will take another look
  6. Hi Kareen, Your viewport is not in top/plan. It needs to be in top plan to function! Your viewport is currently in top... 2D Lable Legend fields will only display in Top/Plan not top. best Tom

    Hanging scenery

    You could use the point loading tool enter the weight and check show symbol and then select symbol, selecting the symbol from the resource browser.

    Hi David. I am currently using custom records to add 'rigging hardware' such as spansets and shackles to elements of truss so that they report into a worksheet. It may cover some (but not all) of the functionality you require. Best Tom

    Free Vision for Students?

    Hi Jim, Would you happen to know how UK students can get hold of a copy of vision by any chance. Been asked a couple of times recently. Many thanks! Tom W

    Static System Not Supported

    Hello, New to Braceworks, My Suspended hanging positions are behaving nicely but the truss they are suspended from is giving me an error message saying the static system is not supported. I am not sure how to hang this position as insert drop doesn't want to connect to an inserted house position? Any thoughts? Thanks!
