    Are you in top plan or 3d?

    2d/3d Label Legends

    So you can have a legend that displays in both 2d and 3d. A 3d label legend should only display in 3d and 2d the same. You also need to tell the fixture in what view to show the 3d label legend. This can be done in the OIP or by double clicking the instrument. Would recommend using classes for 3d field labels for this. Best Tom

    OK, That's odd, worked for me, What service pack are you on? If you are on the current then you will need to contact tech support.

    I understand and can empathise that this is a less than ideal process at this moment in time. Obviously it only affects generics as regular LED and colour mixing sources are fine. A lot of the designs I do now are mostly LED fixtures so I find that I have to do this process for only up to 24 fixtures. watch this space!

    Venue With Multiple Setups

    Referenced could work. providing people are evangelical with filing. I think a layout within the same file is easier to edit Or you could also duplicate a layer and rearrange in the event of a slightly more unique version of your standard setup. The other idea I had was to make the whole layout a symbol?

    Layers, Classes and Saved Views, Classes for different options and saved views to toggle their visibilities. File save as template. Then once project signed off, delete classes (check delete objects) completely. All the best Tom W
