  1. Hi All, This might have a really obvious answer, but I'm having an issue getting a scroller accessory to show up on a an SL26 light symbol. Both symbols are 2D and the accessory does show up in the light information, but it does not appear on the light symbol at all. It will only show up when I click "Edit Accessories" in the OIP. I have been able to solve the problem by just using the 2D/3D symbols with the accessory instead, even when the accessory is only a 2D symbol. However, I feel like there must be a way to make that same 2D accessory work with a 2D object. Nothing on the plot is in 3D, there is no Z value so I can't imagine there's an issue there. The LD who originally created the plot did just manually put the scrollers on, but he doesn't like that and would prefer to just have them as one unit. If there's a workaround to make this work, I'd really love to know about it. Thanks all!
  2. @Sam Jones Solid! I look forward to trying them out!
  3. @markddThat's really awesome, thank you for that! I will look into those for sure.
  4. Hey everyone, I'm not sure if General Discussion is the place for this, but really it's not an issue or anything, just something I was curious about. Is there a way to edit multiple label legends at once? I'm trying to make them consistent across the board, but it can be tedious to go through each one individually, especially when I'm pretty much only concerned with changing text and container sizes. Thanks all! You're the best.
  5. Hey all, I'm not sure if there's a way to do this. I would love to add labels to my box boom positions (just something like HR Box Boom) while they're in 2D view. I used lighting ladders and effectively have a plot view and a 3D view so I can use them in Augment3d, but I can't seem to figure out how to actually make that position name show up as a label in the 2D view. Hopefully that makes some sense. Thanks in advance!
  6. @E Beaton In what way are they deleted? Are you working within the label legend manager? Have you resolved the issue since I see that you posted this a while ago?
  7. @michaelk Thank you so very much for your help on that. I just followed your directions and it worked and the tool, based on my limited amount of use is already really amazing and I look forward to using it more! 😄
  8. It's once I'm in the workspace editor that I'm struggling to find the tool itself within that. Thanks for the reminder to restart VW though, I definitely did forget to do that originally😅
  9. Hey all, I'm delayed in finding out about this and I would love to use the tool, but I am new to adding tools to the workspace. I tried to check out the video included in the link, but I'm a bit lost just because the tool isn't showing up at all. It's in the plugins folder, it should be the most recent version and as far as I can tell, I did everything right leading up to the "adding it to the workspace" part. Thanks and apologies if this is actually really easy and I'm just bad at this.
  10. Hello lovely VW Forums, I am once again asking for your assistance. I'm working on drafting two new venues now and this one's main function is as a sort of movie theatre. So the issue I'm running in to is that I started using stories for this one because it has proven to be really helpful in organization, but it does seem to make placing projection a bit more difficult since I'd like to have the projection stuff assigned to the second story for organization purposes, but to be able to have the screen placed correctly on the story below. Drawing attached to show what I mean, but basically I'm not sure if you can rotate the entire unit in 3D space or not, my usual methods of doing that haven't worked, and I haven't been able to figure out where that might be in the settings for the projection tool. As always, I appreciate you all and the knowledge you all share with me. Thanks!
  11. @Jesse Cogswell Cool, that was kind of the feeling of the solution I was getting from the few different things I'd tried. I do agree with having the Internal Origin on at the start of a drawing though and I'll definitely give starting with the CL-PL on the Internal Origin a try. I feel like I may have tried it at one point in one of my drawings and it didn't go back to it if I tried to re-center the drawing when I got asked to re-center the drawing, but it's been a while so I could be wrong and I'll try that again. Thanks so much for your help!
  12. Hey all, This may be a weird one and I hope I can explain it well. I've attached a drawing of the theatre I'm working on with an "X" where I'd like the internal origin to be and where I'd like the drawing to center to when I tell it to center on the internal origin. As far as I can tell, the drawing centers to the internal origin at the center of the drawing itself, not to a random point, but I could also be wrong. I've spent too many hours trying to find an answer, and I have tried setting a user origin where I'd like it and telling the User and the internal to be the same, but it didn't seem to work. I've tried just manually putting it where I want it, but that hasn't proven to be exact enough for my boss. Basically, if there's anything to be done to set the drawing to center on the internal origin any point that doesn't seem to be the center of the drawing that would be awesome, and I hope this all made sense. Thank you all, you're all amazing and I hope to one day have the level of VW skill the rest of you do!
  13. @JustinVH I did. I didn't see anything really change.
  14. The red squares are where I'm looking and it's alright if there's no actual fix for what I'm going to ask. The ones I've pointed out look significantly different than the rest. Is there a way to change that or is that just how they're going to look in the paperwork? I've tried changing line weights and things and everything is set to just have a black outline, but so far, nothing I've really tried has worked. Thanks in advance!
  15. @Pat Stanford @Boh Solved it! Thank you both!
