  1. Thanks Pat. I totally get #1 and have made it work, i am guess from your answer to #2 worksheets can only relate to their own drawing not reference to other files ?
  2. I have been pretty clear on the worksheet reports for spotlight but is there a way to make reports only list one specific type of fixture ? The goal would be to have a number of worksheets each for a specific manufacturer then if possible have one master worksheet that pulls in all the information from the individual worksheets.
  3. Attached is a screen grab of 5 Ayrton Dream Panel twins in a side hang orientation. Is there a way to set the default fixture tilt so that the panels facing forward ?
  4. Thanks Pat. I had already applied that method but i was hoping that i missed something. Viewports it is.
  5. I am trying to put a worksheet on a sheet layer but it's way too big, is there any way of defining a worksheet to fit across multiple sheet layers ?
  6. Can anyone tell me if there is any space limitations to the size of the model in Vision. When i say model size I do no mean size in terms of polygons but physical area that one can visualise in. Capture has a limit of about 1000m x 1000m x +500m
  7. I have just ventured down this path with not much luck, I too have a drawing with some 131 sheet layers each with a different viewport on each that I am looking to place and instrument summary to summarise the number of fixtures on each viewport. I have been playing about with the filters on the instrument summary tool but there seems to be no way to get a summary of instruments per viewport, or am i missing something?
  8. Thanks Pat, A live link is exactly what i was thinking. I have a huge number of fixtures and it would be so much faster to be able to edit and modify parameters in a work sheet rather than a drawing with so many layers. No Excel does not do well at all on a mac, i have been trying for some time, however I do use a PC workstation in my office so i'll give i t a go on that.
  9. I did something similar a few years back, it turned out that i had somehow mistakenly deleted the viewports. Open the layer view and look at the view port columns, if you still have the view ports listed here then its most likely the Class visibility as Tamsin just said.
  10. I understand for other posts on this forum that MA have dropped Vision with MA3, has anyone had any success getting Vision to work on a MA3 running in Ma2 mode?
  11. While trying to edit an existing label legend, I can edit the 2d text layout with no issue, however if I try to add fields i get the attached scrip error. The only way i can avoid this error is to create a new label but after creating it I still get the same error if i try to edit the fields again
  12. Has anyone tried and succeeded to link fixture information with external excel worksheets ?
  13. I have done all hat you have suggested. the file size is only 25mb but when moving about on a layer with 1000 sharpy's and making changes to the instrument properties .... its still very slow. I am guessing that this is down to the quantity of lights ?
