  1. If you create a new blank file in 2020 using the default lighting device parameters you will not see the old parameters. The reason the old parameters exist when opening an older file is that we could not translate what we now call "User U Address" and "User Address" to the new 2020 fields with 100% accuracy. People used the fields in all kinds of different ways, so we preserved the 2019 data in the "User U Address" and "User Address" fields and try to migrate the data to the new fields automatically. If the information was not in a form we could understand the existing data would be preserved in "User U Address" and "User Address" and could be manually transferred to the new data fields or the manually updated in the user fields.
  2. @innes 1234 Find your local distributor
  3. If you can I would recommend looking at Python Scripting rather than Vectorscript. With Vectorscript you are limited to what Vectorworks can do. With Python you have access to other Python libraries which allow you to do a lot more. A quick google search turned up several options for playing an audio file with Python.
  4. Make sure you are using the default Spotlight workspace and not a migrated workspace. Spotlight Numbering should be the first item in the Spotlight menu. The screenshot looks like it's missing several items that are in the default Spotlight workspace.
  5. @innes 1234 Contact your local distributor and ask them about the Vectorworks student2PRO program.
  6. @Kristina90 We are also now getting reports of some problems with antivirus software but with a different file. If you are still getting the error after downloading a fresh copy for Vectorworks check for see if your antivirus software is preventing Vectorworks from installing properly.
  7. @SamIWas The user still needs to have the script in the plug-ins folder. When you place a Red Symbol it places the Plug-in Object with the parameters pre-configured rather than just a symbol. So in order for someone else to use the Plug-in object they would need a copy of the Plug-in.
  8. @Berit Barton If possible upload your problem file her or contact tech support so that we can investigate the issue you are experiencing.
  9. Try downloading the installer form directly from Vectorworks again. I've seen this error before with applications that were not downloaded properly or not downloaded from the official source of the application.
  10. @TBausch1976 Looks like this should be fixed in the next library update. If you run the update library command you should get the parameters in the software console.
  11. With the LED screen tool the texture mapping is done in the Edit Array Image dialog. The other important thing here is that your image in VW is the same size (especially the aspect ratio) as the image you are using from Madmapper.
  12. Braceworks flags these as warnings because of how they will show on the calculation report. If there are duplicate IDs or missing IDs it's much more difficult to follow the structural report when you need to verify calculations or identify the loads and supports. It's not a problem for calculations just a problem when it comes to reporting.
  13. What version of VW are you using? Can you post a version of your file so we can take a look at it?
  14. @Pascal Probst Please contact your local tech support directly and provide them with the file so we can do further testing.
