  1. Hi @the.dreamer, You can create your own Data Tag objects, that can visualize different parameters and containers. See the attached file. Regards, Yordan hp data tag.vwx
  2. Hello @LenLindhout, For now you can use the Number of units per increment field. In your example, if Circuit Number restarts at 6 and increments by 1, you have to enter 6 in Number of units per increment for the Circuit name field. In Vectorworks 2020 we have improved address numbering, that is related with the DMX Patch command. We will consider your proposal for Numbering improvements in future versions. Thank you, Yordan
  3. Hi @Sebastiaan, It was considered merging or replacing the Label Legend with Data Tag. But the Label Legend is designed especially for the entertainment industry and provides greater layout flexibility, that is lacking in the Data Tag for now. We will reconsider this as the Data Tag evolves. It's technically possible to add "Use Dynamic Text / Define Tag Field" when selecting text in the Legend Layout, but I'm afraid it may conflict with the exciting Manage Label Legend workflow. For now you can group text-blocks with the created Label texts for static texts. If the Label Legend is missing something available in the Data Tag, you can create your own custom Data Tag styles for Lighting Devices, or for any other object in Vectorwroks. Regards, Yordan
  4. Hi @Sebastiaan, The Custom Plan Rotation field is the replacement of the VW2019 field Enable Z Rotation. Once fixed, we will make sure to test that all the mentioned workflows are working correctly with Custom Plan Rotation. About single label attributes - by design it's a single text object and is assigned to one class. If the Single label class Use attributes at creation, the text will use these attributes, otherwise the Lighting Device attributes are used. But as you correctly guessed, in VW2020 SP2 the Single Label is assigned to wrong class, because the default Single Label class is not created. If the chosen single label class already exists in the document, it will be assigned correctly. We are working on the problems and I'll inform you when fixed. Thanks for your feedback and testing, I highly appreciate it.
  5. Hi @Sebastiaan, Thanks for the detailed information provided on these problems. I'll try to answer all of them: 01-3D Legend flips by plan rotation: I'm able to reproduce this problem in VW2019, this behavior is not affected by the Rotate 3D Legend with Z Rotation field. I confirm this is an issue, I created a bug report for this. 02-3D Legend leader lines: I'm able to reproduce this problem in VW2019, I created a bug report for this. 03-3D Legend assign attribute properties: For VW2019 the 3D Legend Use 2D Containers option was replaced with the 3D Layout. The Ligting-Label-3D class is not created anymore in VW2020 SP2, the 3D layout is created and controlled in the same way as the 2D layout. You can use the Eyedropper tool to pick and apply Label Positions for the 2D layout. This will be extended to the 3D layout as well. 04-3D Legend 3D label class forced on field: fixed for VW2020 SP2. 05-2D Non rotating Grouped rotate and 06-2D label container shifts: I'm able to reproduce this problem in VW2019, I created bug reports. 07-2D Grouped Labels do not move anymore: The problem is with Text objects that are not labels and are outside a group - in your case they are in the 3D layout. The workaround is to select these text objects and Send To Front. The control point will appear correctly and you'll be able to move it. I created a bug report for this also. Let me know if you have any questions.
  6. Hi @Magnus Mikaelsen, I was able to reproduce the problem on Mac 10.15.1 in Vectorworks 2020 SP1. This crash don't always occur on Windows. To avoid the crash, do not show the preview. In order to confirm this problem is fixed for the upcoming SP2, please provide the information requested by @JuanP . Thanks.
  7. Select the Hanging Position and from the Object Info palette click the Classes button.
  8. Form the OIP button Classes... assign a separate class for the label only. To use the class attributes, make sure the label class is set to Use at Creation. You can use this approach for every object, that has parts classing, like Hoist, Stages, AV tools. Regards, Yordan
  9. You can turn off the snapping form the Spotlight Preferences, Lighting Device tab, uncheck the Enable Auto Positioning when moved. You can still attach and remove loads from Hanging Position using the selection control points or using the context menu commands . The snapping is enabled only when you drag objects, nudging objects (Shift + arrow keys) do not use the snapping.
  10. In Vectorworks 2019 you can achieve this using the Video Screen tool. Right-click on the object and run Attach to Hanging Position and select the first one. By default the closest to the Position load will be attached. The other possibility is right-click the Hanging Position and run the Attach Loads command. A red cross will indicate the load you are about to attach. Moving one truss should move only the load attached.
  11. This seems to be a problem with the Legend Layout symbol used. The problem might be caused by a 3D locus in the legend definition, or having more than 1 layout symbol. You can try removing everything from the legend symbol, except the text labels, both in 2D and 3D, and then add the Layout symbol from the Label Legend manager.
  12. Hi Hayden, When using Stacked or Side-by-side projectors in Vectorworks 2019 SP3, the weight will automatically double and divide when you change the settings. Both projectors are considered a single load in Braceworks and are controlled by single Load Information block. Yordan
  13. Hi all, I can confirm the issue is fixed in the upcoming SP3. After updating the viewport, the render will be as expected. Regards, Yordan
  14. Try first checking the Unified View command. If this not helps, please message the file where you encounter the problem so I could investigate further. Regards, Yordan Kostadinov
  15. Thanks for pointing at this issue! Two other possible workarounds are to use the Refresh Labels button in the Lighting Device OIP, or execute Refresh Instruments (Ctrl+/). I would be grateful if you send me a file with exploded labels, so we could research further (the file will be used only for internal testing purpose). Any additional information on how to consistently reproduce the problem is welcome. Regards, Yordan
