  1. Hi, on my drawing, i have a symbol comprising of autohybrid symbol in it lined up against another object when i create a viewport and scale it after. the alignment goes a fair bit off. any idea what is wrong? first photo is the aligned object. 2nd is the object in the viewport
  2. Thanks Joshua. This helps!
  3. Hi Joshua, Thank you. The 2nd option worked for me. seems like the workflow has to be tilt of the truss object after converting. Flipping the order around will mess it up, is that so?
  4. Hi Mark, I supposed you are talking about the simplified truss class. Did that but still look the same though.
  5. Hi all, I was exploring the schematic view and there is something i couldn't figure out. I had a truss that was at a 45 degree tilt, converted to a hanging position and had 3 fixtures on it. i created a schematic view and had the impression that it will remove the tilt and make it show the full length. However, it is the same length. Am i mistaken about it? the two attached image shows top/plan view and also iso view to show the tilt.
  6. Hi Markdd, thanks for pointing out Annotations on sheet layer. That will definitely help.
  7. Hi, is there a way to limit visibility of the dimension based on the axis they are on? for example on the top view, I wish to get rid of the lines of the dimensions I created for front or side axis
  8. Hi, I cant recall what I did back on my Mac based VXW but recently I moved to windows and using the step as described(including modifying the empty array), I did get the import option.
  9. Hi all, My Speaker Array tool Speaker setting has the import option to use non-generic symbols from the spotlight library My speakerArray tool Bumper setting is lacking the import option. I have already dropped the speaker bumper in the default folder and i just need to get that import button Is there any particular steps/setting for it to appear?
  10. Hi Rob, So I presume that under the licensing, the 2017 library will not be made available to 2015 users even if we do a library update? I see where you are coming from in terms of being pragmatic in the model design. Aesthetic vs efficiency. Will keep this in mind as i continue in my practises. Thank you so much!
  11. Hi Rob, I don't seem to see the file. I could have missed it. On the other hand, could it be due to the fact that I am running VW2015 and it is not included in my version? Appreciate the advice and knowledge you and Mark are providing. it really speeds up my learning.
  12. Hi Mark, Thanks for the taking the time to look through my file and explaining the details! I will give it a go tomorrow first thing in the morning.
  13. Hi Will, Thanks for the link, That is the same video that I saw and try to practise on. I tried to do the same thing except for the modelling part. Some how when i change it to a instrument the attached photo happens. My loci is shown as the center of the yoke arms. Somehow the head is still at the wrong position.
  14. Hi all, Still picking up vectorworks spotlight and is trying to customise lighting fixture. My practise here is to import the Clay Paky DWG and make it into a symbol. When use Spotlight>Object Conversion>Covert to instrument, the 3D model main body of the moving light goes out of position. Does anyone know where I am doing this wrongly? ClayPakyMythos.vwx
