  1. Hi All is there a way to auto assign video object for instance in the same way that I can auto assign truss objects (With a prefix set within the document settings options) I have a template file based off of the VWX UK Template. I have the truss object prefix set up and would like to do similar for video objects such as projectors and cameras. Mainly to keep my class structure tidy so I don't have to spend time reassigning. Just wondering if this is possible. thanks M
  2. @Rob Books Thanks for the update. Will br great to get them! thanks M
  3. Hi All, Im sure this is a long shot but has anyone got symbols for the new Series 3 Source 4 Lustr as of yet? I have submitted a fixture request. thanks M
  4. It would depend on your budget however the new M1 MacBooks run v2021 pretty well for 2d drawings (I haven't done much 3d yet on the M1s). Most of the MacBook Pros from the last couple of years are good. Check the current Tech specs tho here: - https://www.vectorworks.net/sysreq
  5. Hi All I am getting this pop up every time I try to insert a new fixture in to my drawing. If I renumber it I can carry on with what I am doing. Any idea why this is occurring. It is only happening on this particular drawing and I can't seem to locate the issue.. thanks in advance M
  6. That’s great! Thanks for the update. I’ll forward on the training suggestion. thanks again for the assistance!
  7. That worked great thank you. Just out of curiosity is this expected behaviour as 429 devices doesn't seem that many in the grand scheme of things. is it just a processing limit of the machines we are using?
  8. Thanks Tom. I will try this with the team this morning.
  9. Hi all Having an issue where when selecting Spotlight Numbering tool from the menu crashes Vectorworks. This issue occurs on both Catalina (Intel -based Mac) and Big Sur (M1 Based Mac). I can't seem to find a solution. Any help greatly appreciated thanks M Under Milk Wood - V1 MDH TEst.vwx
  10. Hi Tom Thanks for the reply. As I rule I reference by path. I have followed your other steps also however have come up with the same issue where it is asking to manually locate the file. Could this possibly be a Mac thing with OneDrive? Thanks M
  11. I have ran into an issue where a colleague opens a file that I have saved on Shared OneDrive Show Folder and the reference is broke. The file references a set drawing (in a sub-folder of my LX Folder). The set drawing DWG was referenced with "Path relative to current document" selected, however when it is opened the path seems to be on My one drive folder (/Users/mharpur/National Theatre/Afterlife - Documents/LX/01 LX Plan/02 Set Drawings). Just wondering if this is expected behaviour or I am missing something/doing something wrong. I am keen to keep referencing as the DWG currently changes every couple days and my programmer and myself also need to edit the file.\ Any suggestions appreciated thanks
  12. Since posting this I have since found that in Lightwright there is the X. Y and Z position within the Worksheet columns menu. This was definitely one of those "I know its possible" momnets thanks all
  13. I am wondering if there is a way to export the X, Y and Z values to Lightwright using Data Exchange as I can't see a way to do this. Alternatively is the a good workflow for this? I essentially am looking to have this information available within an instrument schedule in Lightwright to assist with rigging bars/trusses etc. Thanks M
  14. Do you have a "Style" selected when using the Pipe tool. If you're using Line insertion mode and have "Unstyled" within the dropdown menu you should be able to change the size of the pipe then set your Object Properties M
  15. I have come up with a issue where I have attached a number of S4 Lustrs to a Straight Truss Object. The Fixtures are attached to the position, however they are not taking the position name (FOH 1 in this case) When I manually give the name to the fixtures the Lighting symbols become detached from the truss position. Strangely I can assign the Position name in Lightwright and this does not detach the lights from the truss and also assigns the names correctly. Any help greatly appreciated. M
  16. Thats Great Mark Thank you Ill check it out!
  17. Hi All I am having an issue where I am creating a Custom Boom with De-rig arms etc. I create a Hanging position which all works fine, but when I go to make the schematic view I only get the "Top Plan" view and not a flat lay of the fixtures. Using v2021 Thanks in advance
