  1. Thank you both, so much. This is a huge relief. You saved me!
  2. I am building a scenic element with repeated components which I am making using extrudes, add solids, and subtract solids. I am then creating symbol with each object, leaving instance in place, and using symbol insertion to place duplicates. The unusual result I'm getting is that the OIP is calling those objects "extrude," "solid addition," or "solid subtraction," and not "symbol." Also, the name of each symbol is not appearing in the OIP. Also, the symbols, inserted using Insert Symbol tool, do not update, when the symbol is changed using Edit 3D from the Resource Browser. Also, symbols I created in an older document imported to the new one, behave normally: display "Symbol" at the top of OIP, display symbol name, and respond to edits from the resource browser. I'm not sure what happened that I can't make working symbols anymore. Any ideas? Symbol Glitch.vwx
  3. Thanks for your help. I'm still having trouble. Apparently I didn't install Spotlight properly. Spotlight doesn't appear on my tool bar or in my Resource Browser. I have all of the symbols that come with it, but I can't create instruments, nor can I access Spotlight/label legends. Is there a special installation step for Spotlight that I might have missed?
  4. Hi, It's been a while since I've used Vectorworks and I'm dropping Spotlight symbols of source 4s. I don't see the nifty data fields on my plot (You know... like the unit #, and that hexagon for circuit number, dimmer number or channel number, etc.) I can look at the Light Info Record and see all kinds of wonderful things about S4 lekos, but I still can't find a place to type in: Channel 2. How do I get the instrument data fields to show up on my plot? How do I get Vectorworks to Number my units? Thanks a lot, Guys. Casey
