  1. When making a lighting plot I noticed that Vectorworks does not come with a symbol for an ETC Net3 Gateway. After searching a bit I couldn't find a pre-made CAD file so I made my own. The issue comes when I try to convert the symbol into an instrument: nothing happens. To test this out I selected my Gateway and selected "Create Label Legend from Instrument" and Vectorworks told me no unit was selected. For reference I'm using these instructions from Vectorworks https://app-help.vectorworks.net/2018/eng/VW2018_Guide/LightingDesign1/Creating_a_Lighting_Instrument_Symbol.htm
  2. @klinzey That was it! I have no clue how this happened since I never customized my spotlight in previous versions. This was driving me crazy so thank you
  3. I updated to vectorworks 2020, and I can't find the Spotlight Numbering tool. I've done some searches online, but there is nothing about it. The AutoNumber tool is there, but when I select it nothing happens. I read somewhere about it being part of the legacy tool set, but I don't know how to find that either. Attached is a screenshot of my dropdown menu.
  4. Hello, I'm somewhat new to Vectorworks and I'm having trouble with the Hanging Position Tool. Whenever I insert a new position, the label location seems to populate at random locations, either on the far left of the pipe or the center. I want the label to stay on the right hand side of the pipe whenever I insert a new position. Is there a way to change this in the settings, or do I have to move them manually each time?
