I am curious as to how one would go about making lighting objects in Vectorworks. I have a file of symbols I like to use, and ones that come from manufacturers automatically are lighting objects. When I make a symbol of my own, even when I convert it into a lighting object in that file, it is not automatically a lighting object in another file when I import the symbol. How does one go about creating a symbol like that?
I have looked through the help documentation, and the only thing I found was converting a lighting object into a plug-in object. When I tried this, it turned my 2D/3D Hybrid symbol into a 2D group, and still did not default to being a lighting instrument.
I am using VWorks 2015 SP5 (although soon to switch to 2016), and I am on Windows 10.
Any help would be much appreciated Thanks!
