    Dealing with this for a second time... ugh

    Assign to layer BUG

    Glad I'm not the only one! Good idea on cut and paste in place. I feel like the time saved using the search function makes up for the extra time of moving things between layers at the moment. I hope there is a fix available within the week,

    Which mouse for PC

    I use this: http://gaming.logitech.com/en-us/product/g600-mmo-gaming-mouse What I like about it is the (once configured) dedicated middle mouse button, ability to cycle mouse DPI settings, and I can assign keyboard shortcuts to the side buttons. This combined with my 3Dconnexion Space Navigator 3D mouse has been the perfect setup for me. Of course, Cherry MX blues on the keyboard as well.. I'm fairly picky.

    Uninstall to Deactivate

    Well.. Here I sit with my new laptop that's been running VW2016 no problem for two weeks. Now telling me I need to contact Vectorworks staff to activate my license.. I'm too far away from my workstation computer, and of course I put it to sleep so I can't remote in.. Can't wait to explain this one to the client in the morning!

    Spotlight Crash during edit light

    Here is a screenshot of the flipped shutters when rendering.

    Spotlight Crash during edit light

    Windows 7. What's strange is I can work my way down 18 ellipsoidals and when I get to #13 or above it starts crashing.

    Spotlight Crash during edit light

    Having the same issue. Vectorworks is also flipping the shutters around backwards after rendering with renderworks. I'm getting crashes just trying to turn beams on. Extremely frustrating. Of course it's the weekend so I can't get on the horn with support..
  11. Bump. Currently I'm using a similar process of altering the 3D models but this is a PITA with lots of fixtures, also having to revert the lights that are off...

    Edit more than one 'Lighting Device' at a time

    Hear hear.
  13. I feel like 3DS exports are taking forever since I updated to 2015. For example, 3 cubes that have already been converted to 3D polys took 6 minutes to think about it, and then once the 2ds export bar shows up another 25 seconds to run the export. What's strange is it takes almost exactly the same time to export larger geometry consisting of around 300,000 vertices. Anyone else experiencing this? Just want to see what's happening with other users before I contact support.

    Edit more than one 'Lighting Device' at a time

    Thanks zoomer.
  15. Is there a simple way to edit more than one lighting device at a time? For example assign a color, activate soft shadows and lit fog, turn on light. Clicking through many moving lights and it's a real chore.
