    I'm trying to export a drawing to DWG but get a message - ODA Platform Error The file could not be opened. Make sure it is not already open in another application. I turned everything off, opened only the file to export and got the same message. Can anyone help ? I'm not even sure what ODA means !
  2. Can I use this to add the numbers to an existing drawing ?
  3. What is the quickest/easiest way to add fixture numbers to devices on a lighting plot ?
  4. Hi, I think Atom.design is asking about the colours emitted by lights when visualised ? My question was about the colour of the unit symbol in the drawing. Thanks
  5. How can I choose the colour of a symbol to make it stand out more ? Some lights are already blue/red/green others only black.

    Spotlight Tool sets

    Thank you so much, I thought it was going to be something dumb that had done or wasn't doing ! I'm very grateful.
  7. I can't find the Spotlight tool sets pop-up window in VW 2018. What have I done to make it disappear please ? If I go to Tools/Workspaces/Fundamentals it appears ( albeit with only 5 options) but not in Spotlight. If I launch VW 2017 it is there with 9 different tool sets.

    Dwg Imports

    Hi, in fact my theory of the size being an issue has proved to be a total red herring and you are completely correct that there is an object that causes the import to crash. I sent the files to the VW TechSupport and they very kindly identified the object causing this. Thank you for your help.

    Dwg Imports

    I previously asked about dwg imports freezing, what I have found is that I can import a dwg of 3.7mb or smaller but not anything larger. Is there a size limit that one can adjust ? If so where/how do I do this please ?
  11. Thank you, really helpful; will that create the same folders of instruments that one finds in earlier versions ?
  12. I am not an expert VW user but found VW 15 relatively easy and logical; I sort of skipped 16 but am now finding 17 very difficult to use. It seems to be very internet based and as I travel a lot Im not always on line and therefore have difficulties particularly with the resource browser. How do I store sll the symbols I used to have ? Thanks for help
