  1. Hey gang, My version of 2020 seems to crash semi-consistently when I am in an RW camera and want to switch back to a top/plan view. Anyone else noticed this?
  2. Hey guys, I'm trying to use the Duplicate Along Path tool to add some lights to a circle truss. I'm working in the schematic view, and I swear this has worked before. When I use the Preview tool from the Duplicate Along Path it looks correct, but when I click "ok" the final product looks more like the "duplicate array" tool. Screen shots below of how I have it set-up, how it looks in preview, and the final product: Set-up
  3. Hey Pat, Right now I have it set as: =('Lighting Device'.'Inst Type'), which I just copy and pasted from the SL Inventory Worksheet (where it works fine). Am I missing something else? Dan
  4. Hey guys, Returning to this topic from a while back. I have my symbol counting worksheets up and running, but it can't seem to handle lighting instruments in. If I drop a light in as just a symbol it will come up fine in the worksheet, but if I drop in a lighting instrument it doesn't. It works fine if I use the inventory spreadsheet that the "create reports" tool makes, but I can't get it to work within mine. Any thoughts? Dan
  5. Hey, I have not tried these. Are they only available as a purchase through your site? Dan
  6. Hey guys, Any advice on how to create a scrim object that really behaves like a scrim? I.e. Opaque when lit directly from the front, but see through w/ light sources behind it? The "scrim" setting for softgood seems to just create a semi-transparent object, which isn't really the same effect. Thanks!
  7. Hey gang, I'm struggling with this one. All was going smoothly in my drawing until I tried to add a set of L&E Mini Strips. No matter what I did the instance just would not physicaly show up in the drawing, the symbol would load into the resource browser, but nothing in the drawing itself. I thought it was an issue w/ the symbol, so I switched to an Altman mini-strip - same problem. I started clicking around, taking random fixtures from other manufacturers and noticed a strange trend. The only symbols that show up and behave normally are LEDs or Moving Lightings, no conventional fixtures are showing up. Altman Scoops = No. Altman Phoenix = yes. Source 4 zoom = No. Colorsource = yes. Random Martin Conventional Strip Light = No. Mac Auras = yes, and so on. I do have a base file that I have favorited, and instruments I pull over from that one are no issues. Non-lighting symbols like tables and chairs seem to come in just fine, but if I put an instrument in as a plain symbol it doesn't show. If I try to edit the 2d or 3d components of any of these it shows nothing. All my classes, layers, etc, are turned on, and my layers are the same scale. Any ideas?
  8. Hey folks, Does anyone have a suggestion about where to find 2D rigging hardware symbols? Stuff that's climbing/rescue related would be even better. Shackles, carabineers, rigging plates etc?
  9. Hey, would one of you guys mind re-uploading your mirror ball file? I could have sworn I had it somewhere but now I can't seem to track it down.
  10. Hey, Sam is correct, I was looking to be able to specify a different connector type. I did a little googling after I posted and found the solution in an old post on the boards here from a couple years ago. Thanks
  11. Hey, Is there a way to add types of cable to cable tool? I'd like to be able to draw in things like NL8, video cable runs, etc. Thanks!
  12. Thanks that fixed it! No idea how that would have gotten changed. Oh well...
  13. Hey all, Kind of a weird issue I am having. For some reason when I try to publish a sheet layer to PDF the final product comes out like a screen shot. E.g. If I am zoomed all the way in on my sheet layer when I click the "publish" the resulting PDF is zoomed all the way in, not framed up to page borders like usual. I can't think of any settings or anything i have changed lately that would cause this to happen... Thanks
  14. Hey, I suspect this has been covered before, but is there a way to add speaker types to the drop down menu for the Speaker Array tool? I feel like I did it in a previous version but can't for the life of me figure it out in 2018. Thanks!
