    Active class question

    Hello all, I have a question about active class please. I have my own active class activated, then use insert truss tool or straight truss tool to place truss, the truss will assigned to None class instead of active class. but with the same active class activated, when I place an lighting fixture, it assgned to the active layer. Is there anything I am missing here to have this problem? I am showing the situation in the video attached with this case. Any inputs are welcome. I am using PC, VW 2019 Sp4. Thank you. bandicam 2019-08-09 17-49-55-501.mp4
