    Change label color with light

    Thanks! I figured out the issue is that you need to have a container for the label. Is there no way to have the label text change color? Also this seems like it can either be a single class or all classess. Is there a way to modify multiple classes so I could have address and unit number change but nothing else? Thanks!

    Change label color with light

    Bumping this back up to the top as I don't believe it has ever been fixed. Is there any way to automatically change label attributes in 2019?

    Mirror tool with instruments

    When I use the mirror tool with instruments the the tool activates the Z rotation option. This only seems to happen if you use the mirror while in a 3D view. It sets the rotation to 7.01671e-15 which results in a 180deg rotation of the instrument. It doesn't affect the rotation at the top of the OIP just the Z-rotation in 3D Orientation. It Is there any fix for this or is it just a bug? Thanks

    Cloud Service .vgx not loading

    I have files in Google Drive that I have linked to Vectorworks Cloud Services. When I create .vgx files from the website they work fine and I can access them properly but when I try to send them to our clients using the link sharing the don't load. I just get a scrolling progress bar at the top of a full white page, not even the normal "Please wait while model loads". Is this a google drive integration problem? Thank you
  5. What is the best way to add bleachers/stadiums and crowds into vision for rendering? Is there some built in ability like in Capture, or do I need to build it all in vectorworks first? Thanks

    Stageline symbols bugging out.

    All the stageline symbols are bugging out. If I add the symbol to the drawing it shows up as a group instead of a symbol. It also will only display in 2D or 3D, depending on which view I am in when it is added. If I add in plan view I can only see the 2d version even when I change to front, side, etc and the other way around if I start in one of those modes. When I go find an older version of the symbol from a past drawing (Aug 2018) it works perfectly. The symbol names are blue in the resource manager, what does that mean and is that the issue? Thanks, Matt

    Turn off focus indicators

    Excellent. Thank you!
  8. How the hell do I turn off these indicators? Incredibly annoying...

    Stop a publish part way through

    Is there a way to stop a publish while it is happening. If I am updating a viewport in a different drawing the backgound the publish action just sits there waiting for the viewport to render first while also locking up Vectorworks. Thanks

    Title block not wrapping text

    One field in my title block doesn't automatically wrap text. There are 3 fields that should wrap text and are setup identically but only 2 work properly. The only difference that the one that doesn't work is linked to the sheet title while the other two are linked to custom fields. Any ideas why this would happen? File attached.

  11. Is it possible to draw a line of any distance and have symbols automatically populate along the line? It is a feature I saw in someone else's AutoCAD and thought it would be very nice to have. In particular I would like to use it to draw fence lines. I have the 8' sections of fence as a symbol and I want them to replace the line (or object) to the closet 8' so a 24' line would become 3 symbols etc. I have fundamentals and spotlight. Thanks!

    Stage line CADs

    You can request .dwg files and import them. I have converted all their stages to symbols this way. Not the most efficient from a resources standpoint but works well enough. Most everyone speaks English at SL. Shouldn't have a language issue if you use English.

    Change label color with light

    Thanks! I thought that should have done it but I'm using 2017 and nothing happened. Good to know it's a bug and hopefully it can be fixed soon.

    Change label color with light

    Is there a way to get the label text for a light to change to the color of the light. I like to color code the different lights in a plot and currently I make a duplicate label for each type of light and manually change the text color to match the fixture color. Can this be done automatically? Thanks!

    Gobo - Light Ring Spill

    How do you get the beams to be broken up? Is that using in VW or a a separate program? EDIT: Figured it out. Needed to check receive shadows in background options.
