Thank you all for your input, I have learned a lot and appreciate the time. I imported the symbols again and was able to fix all but one issue.
The slash symbols designating the degree on the front of the Source 4 26deg or 36deg always seems to be on the "None" layer. I have tried importing the instruments again many times and even replaced with another ETC instrument that I have never used with the same results, even with a refresh.
This leaves me with having to have 3 different classes visible to render things properly(My class "FOH lights", the hidden class of "lighting-incandescent" and "None").
Classes have often frustrated me. Using the lighting pipe tool to create a batten, then converting to a hanging positions also has the 6 different "hidden" classes (Pipe, tick mark...) but at least I can see and change those.
