    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

    Problems with insert connection tool

    Hi, Have you tried posting this in Braceworks. You could try using insert drop in the Braceworks menu.
  9. Thats worth Noting 'screen aligned'. I shall remember that. Thanks Kareen!
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. Ah with you, hang on, I will take another look
  13. 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.

    More fields in "Truss record" Database

    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

    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!
