  1. Once Jesse files the JIRA ticket we will investigate the issue. However, there are no more content bug fixes for VW2024 so the fix will occur in VW2025 and will be available once that is released.
  2. Yes, remove the UUID by setting everything to Rigid or use one of the cross sections from the drop down and set that to every symbol. You can also make your own custom cross section but it will live internally within your drawing only and cannot be exported or shared.
  3. @Mike RockI am adding a correction post because I realized I omitted a step. The Tomcat has the UUID assigned because we run an internal only script when we ship the symbols to assign that UUID and Cross Section ID to all symbols. In order to remove the UUID you need to click on the Change Cross Section button and assign the ID to Rigid. Once you close that selection dialog enter the dimensions again as they will default to zero and make sure your Connects With matches the Type. Fixed file is attached.

  4. You need to make sure that the Type in the Object Data is set to the same name as the Connectable With field. Both Tomcat and XSF have stated they will not give us their cross section data so those cross sections will not be available in the drop down as choices. You should just be able to edit the connectable with field.
  5. In the Component Edit Palette you need to change the view in the Edit field to Top. Just click on the double arrow where it says Front and you should see an option to change to top.
  6. It is on the list but will not happen until the next major version release.
  7. This content has been released on April 25, 2024 in the April 2024 Premium Library update in the English International version of VW2024. It is located in the Audio Bumpers and Audio Speakers folder of the Premium libraries. If you are using a localized version of Vectorworks is may take a little longer for your version to be updated with this new content.

  10. @Iainy1961You may have left the front 2D in that view. Those views are not supported in Spotlight Lighting Instruments. Glad that is what you are looking for though.
  11. @Iainy1961Is this what you were trying to achieve? It is still a lighting device for me. Ayrton Diablo Custom 2D.vwx
  12. @Iainy1961You will have to go into the Edit 2D Component of the symbol and redraw the 2D geometry in order to get the look you desire. To do this follow these steps: -To access edit window, right click on the symbol in the RM and choose Edit 2D Component to enter the 2D Top/Plan geometry. -Delete the current 2D geometry. -Redraw your desired geometry and assign classes as appropriate. A good trick to draw this view can be achieved using the cardinal direction 2D geometry that is used for Architect symbols but not supported for Spotlight. To do this trick do the following: -Right click on the symbol in the RM and choose Edit 3D Component to enter the 3D Top/Plan geometry. -In the Component Edit Palette choose Front from the Edit Dropdown. -With nothing selected, right click in empty space and choose the Generate 2D from 3D Component command, and choose Hidden Line. -The program will draw the view in 2D in a group. -Copy or Cmd/Ctrl X to get the geometry on your clipboard. -Return to the 2D Component and paste the group into the 2D, from there edit the line work as you see fit, sometimes the curves can be created as lots of tiny facets so you may want to clean up that line work.
  13. I may be wrong but I believe that the rendering engine used for Spotlight lighting instruments can only render a symmetrical round beam regardless of the beam and field angles. The Draw Beam option will take the beam and field angles into account for showing how the beam spreads but cannot be used to render. I believe you have to create a different type of lighting fixture and use an .ies file to get oval beams. I am adding @klinzey who will be able to clarify for certain if my statement is correct.
  14. @Alex KeenThey are definitely there. They are in the Premium Libraries in the Lighting Instruments>ETC Source Four LED folder. You have to have access to Premium Libraries and have them enabled to see this content.
  15. @mjmNot a problem. In fact, here is a file with just those two textures in case anyone wants to use them for their work. It saves the hassle of trying to search and find them as they can be buried. Other Instrument Texture Options.vwx
