    You can also use "Replace Lighting Device..." on the OIP

    Cable Tool Color

    The line of the cable will take the class attributes they are placed on. So for feeder cable, you can make a class called "Feeder" or whatever you want to call it, set that class to the color code you need. Now place/draw your cables in that class. I made a quick Video with a "Cable" class that has a green pen. Hope it helps! Cable.mov

    Hoist hooks 6" higher than truss

    This looks to be a bug, it's taking the center line of the truss at the load. I will submit it now, thanks!

    Importing and Rotating Christie Truss

    @Rex Reid Sounds like your dropping in truss as a standard symbol and not a truss object. If that's correct you might want to convert them to a truss object, you can find how to do this in Vectorworks help. Also look at the truss poly count, if its high you should get rid of some of it as it will slow down drawing. The last option I have seen people do is to just draw the truss in 3D only, it will be wireframe in Top/Plan so not as nice looking but, you can rotate it freely in 3D. Tip, I know a lot of users that will color code the truss making it quick to identify on site. Example: 10' is red, 8' blue, 5', green and so on. Hope this helps.

    Importing and Rotating Christie Truss

    @Rex Reid There are a few different workflows for this. One being "Create plot and model View" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPVQ5nr1DDA Or In the OIP of the Truss click the "Draw 3D Only" CheckBox. This will hide the 2D info and allow you to rotate the truss. The simple reason is that a symbol will not redraw the 2D part to be correct in Top/Plan, the straight truss tool will. The image below shows that the 36' truss would need to be 28' ish to be correct in Top/Plan. Hope this helps

    Kevin, Vectorworks is more plotting, and still renders, if you want to do pri viz with video then you would need Vision.
