  1. My lighting symbols are classes as follows : Any unit that goes to a dimmer is assigned to class "1 - Light", moving light "1-moving light" Led par/strip "1-led" All units that are hung are on lighting flown later All ground floor units are on lighting floor layer. I also break up the truss to sub classes. All of my truss is by default black truss when in render, but when I look at it at top plan I like to see different color for each length so I created a rectangular for each truss length and assign it to 1- truss color.
  2. http://www.actlighting.com/support/grandma2/ this might help?
  3. Take it to photoshop add a glow/ lens flare to the image?
  4. A few ways. Copy it from resource manager of the file x you want to copy it from and paste it to file Y. Or have both drawings open. In the resource Manager of file X lable legend right click on the lable legend choose import. You should see it now in the resource Manager of file Y
  5. You can create a new texture and change the Image on the screen to your image. After you render the I-mag shot click on the viewport - copy it- past on to your show folder on hardrive. create new render texture from image - choose the I mag image, give it glow and hit ok. choose the screen - click on the edit screen image button- choose your new Image image. You might need to change the scale of the image a bit depending on the aspect ratio of the image you apply to the screen and the screen size.
  6. Thank you for sharing the link from LW6. Here is where it gets confusing (for me..) please read the bold underline. "When you choose Manually assign the Dimmer and Universe, all three address fields are available for editing in the Object Info Palette and you can enter anything you want into them. Vectorworks does not validate or sync the content of these fields between each other. As a result, the contents of these fields may not agree with each other. For instance, you can enter 2284 as the Address, 1 as the universe number, and 789 as the U Address, and Vectorworks will not alert you to the conflicts or try to correct them. what I`m trying to ask (not complain) is why we don't see the U address in the OIP but we see it and can edit it when I edit the light? It will be extremely helpful to see the u Address in the OIP.
  7. Maybe try to change the display light object to never?
  8. Hi Jim - yes Im aware that you do not develop LW . My only request is to be able and adjust the U address with in the OIP of vector works. the U address does show and is editable when I edit the unit so its strange why it will not show on the OIP?
  9. I called service Select and there is no option currently to add it to the OIP. So it looks like we will have to use the address to show uni/dmx (which I don't like) I guess I will stick with VW16 due to bugs in 17 that are driving me crazy and I really don't have the time to take the risk with finding them as I plot. Sorry for the rant but I`m not a beta tester. I pushed the company I work for to continue the service Select for 8 seats. And now I`m telling my guys not to use VW 17 because We are running into issues? Quote "so why did we upgrade" I will stick with LW 5 just because it's all set up how I like it. Unless there is a way to show the u adreess in the OI and I will rebuild my legends to u adreess? Not having good vibe about 17. @JimW???? Sounds do like simple code??
  10. Now that LW6 is using universe = universe in LW. U Address=DMX in LW6. I would like to see the U address in the object info of a lighting device. I see the U address in the label legend and when i edit the lighting device and Im able to change the address but I don`t see it in the object info? I like to set universe and address separately. I know I can set it up that it will show 2/114... but i dont like that. That is why i want my label legend to show universe separately from unit dmx address.

    Label legend

    I don't see it in edit mode but it's not just the symbol I don't see. There is a blank screen. After I hit refresh I see all of legend info ( check, dimmer,......
  12. Coming? So we just wait and wait.....? When 2018? Or an itbepart of a build ?

    Label legend

    When I`m editing a label legend layout (which is from 2016) I don't see the lable legend layout displaying the layout until I hit refresh instruments. Anyone else have that issue. I tried it with two different label legends
  14. @JimWcan you please share the fix with all of us. This is major bug and if there is a fix that is already working it will be great if we can all have it because we need it. Thx!
  15. One way to do it is to render the camera view save that image as JPG or PNG. Even if you save it as PDF I think you can copy the picture and save it on your desktop. Then create a new texture in Vectorworks import the image to that texture and assign that texture to your screen. I hope this helps.
