    VW Manual?

    Pretty sure the answer is 42 but 'deep thought' didn't understand the question. In the absence of an answer Kevin's books are pretty fantastic. I have 'Entertainment Design'.

    Create Hoist Manufacturer

    Morning Andrew You can create additional Hoists, I duplicated some existing hoists and then used attach record to change default values, however I could not find manufacturer field. I inserted the new hoist by inserting a standard one and then selecting custom in the OIP where I was able to select the new hoist symbol. Then I was able to select Manufacturer 'Other' in the list. Let me know which brand of Hoists you would like to see within the program. kind regards. Tom W

    Using Spotlight Numbering - Selection Holds

    I have seen this a few times, Would love to know what causes this. One user repaired their user folder which did stop this from happening.

    Lighting Paperwork

    Does anyone remember LPS pro? I had it before Lightwright and you could email the hire shop your order from within the application. To be honest I think I used that functionality twice. Anyone else use it?

    Error database was not accessible

    The fourth screen grab depicts a file path referencing a Vectorworks file location?! please explain?

    Error database was not accessible

    Hi Floriane, You should email tech support, the issue you are portraying could be to that your login account doesn't have write access to the folders that the Vectorworks Application need to write the content to. You could also try reinstalling the application. Best Tom

    Vision 2019 lecos have no barrel rotation

    Thanks Jake, I think I will pursue feature requesting lens/barrel rotation. The recommended workflow is to focus instruments in Spotlight First and then export MVR. You can focus in vision but I am worried that focuses may get trashed when you next export MVR. Apologies for the delay. Best wishes Tom W

    Vision 2019 lecos have no barrel rotation

    Can you upload a screenshot of what you are trying to achieve jake? either rotating the lens tube would be one option or having independently unlimited movements on shutters like the adb warp fixtures. would be an interesting feature request if you are currently unable to achieve the cuts you want to achieve
