  1. I'm happy to report a resolution on this.. and it wasn't what I was expecting. @mjm ...I had the fill set to no fill. When looked at the properties of the hoists with the problem, they also ad the fill set to "no fill". So on the surface of things, this didn't appear to be the problem. However, when I set the fill to solid and white, all the problems seem to have gone away. @scottmoore...I had tried all the options you suggested, to no avail, but they were the obvious solutions to look for! Thanks both
  2. Thein lies another problem. If you go in and edit the 2 component to change the fill (which is the way to do it, and you can only do 1 at a time), it seems to lose the link to the hoist data... and the point is then useless in terms of data on the drawing. What I am most confused about is why that fill has suddenly started appearing, and even if I put a new hoist in, the fill is there. I've looked through class properties and all sorts... its a bit of mystery!
  3. For some reason the default fill colour of the Host Label or Hoist Number has changed to black, any thoughts anyone?
  4. It is, but I don't know how it changed to this. I have figured out how to change the display back to how it should be 1 unit at a time, but with 196 hoists... its going to take a fair while!
  5. I know I have probably done something really dumb, but I can't for the life of me work out what... The Hoist display is is going me a black box instead of the hoist label... image attached
  6. I'm sure the answer for this question is somewhere on this forum, but for the life of me I can't find it. I would like to make a report that lists the hanging positions and then the truss contained within each hanging position. It would also be useful to have a report that lists all the fixtures attached to that hanging position, possibly with some of the data that's in the OIP such as Channel Numbers.
  7. Build number is 463397. This has been happening since I upgraded to 2019 as far as I remember, but I hadn't needed to do anything in the way of truss drawing for a few months so completely forgot about the issue.
  8. Yes of course... here you go Prolyte Truss Example.vwx
  9. I've been having the same problem, but it only appears with Prolyte Truss. Hamo, have you found that this is just with Prolyte or with other manufacturers?
  10. Reporting back... this seems to have fixed the problem. Thanks Rob
  11. Ah! That would probably be the problem. I’ll back track and report back. Thank you.
  12. I've been through the forum to see if anyone else has had problems using some of the tool's in Spotlight, and didn't find anything. Has anyone else had problems using some of the tools, and there being a huge delay in them actually working... the spinning wheel sits there for ages, then the Object Properties windows appears a little later, but incomplete, still with the spinning wheel, then eventually on some of the tolls, it works. The Hoist tool I have had to wait so long, and its become unusable.
  13. I have been looking at a new solution for my portable work station. Currently I find myself carrying both My 2015 Mac Book Pro, and an iPad pro. There are arguments for carrying both such as the ability to be able to use the iPad pro as a secondary screen, as well as the standard reasons why we all use a tablet. The time has come to start thinking about an upgrade, and I have been looking at either a fully loaded Mac Book Pro or a fully loaded Surface Pro. I really I am trying to compact what I have to carry, which is why the Surface pro appeals, but I was wondering what experience other people have had. I have both an iMac and a powerful PC in the office, so this is not the full time solution. Seen lots of opinions within the community on older models of both machines, but nothing recent.
  14. Thanks guys, I seem to have this working properly.
  15. Brilliant... thank you...that works for straight pieces, now to suss out how it works for Cubes when you can connect on all 4 sides
