  1. This is a known issue should be fixed in a future 2020 service pack.
  2. If you have a physical console or a wing you can connect via sacn or artnet. If you need to use MAnet, you will need to contact your sales representative to purchase a dongle. Dongles are only only available with unlimited universes.
  3. Make sure you are using the latest version of Lightwright 6 and consult LIGHTWRIGHT 6 ADDRESSES AND VECTORWORKS. There have been changes between Vectorwors 2019 and 2020 and related changes in Lightwright.
  4. @rseybert I just tried in 2020 with VP class overrides for class color for the light and I could not get it to work. I looked at Jim's presentation and he was changing the class color of the lens not the light. He was one of the people I had the discussion about class coloring of the light with VP overrides. It works fine for the geometry but not for the light source.
  5. I have tried setting the color of a Vectorworks light object by class in prior versions and it does not work. Even thou you can use the attributes palette to set the color of the light, coloring by class will not work. I put in a wish list request as coloring a Vectorworks light object by class has been requested by several users.
  6. @kroman I haven t seen this problem with the Instrument Summary before. I recommend contacting tech support directly so they can take a look at your file.
  7. @Projx_CA Currently there is no way of assigning an allowable force to the sliders or hiding them from the report. We will look into a way of handling sliders.
  8. We found an issue in some files that contain more than 10 Label Legends. We will issue a fix in the next service pack. If you have a file that has this problem we recommend importing or creating the Label Legend in another file, editing the Label Legend there and then importing the new label legend back into the original file.

  10. I've open an issue in our tracking system and asked the engineer to take a look. If it was a change it was not intentional.
  11. Unfortunately this is the way project sharing works. You will see this happen with any objects that are associated with each others, like Data Tags. If you want to modify a Data Tag or an object with a Data Tag both must be checked out. Since trusses are associated with each other and lights are associated with truss when either is edited the other must also be checked out.
  12. Focusing in Design Layer Viewports was eliminated in 2020 as we have transition to Schematic Views.
  13. You can't do it automatically, you must manually assign the color. When you use a color, the lighting device looks up the RGB values and then creates a color with the proper name and RGB value. If you look in the color picker you can see the colors and names created by the lighting device. It could be done by scripting but there is nothing built into the worksheet to handle this.
  14. There is an issue with the Truss object where the 2D and 3D do not align when rotated vertically. This will be fixed in an upcoming service pack.
  15. @Alex Bridge The files should be stored in ...\Libraries\Defaults\Templates\ By default is should save to your user folder so it will be associated with your account, others should not use it by default as long as everyone has a unique log-in. Windows is C:\Users\<USER NAME>\AppData\Roaming\Nemetschek\Vectorworks\2020\Libraries\Defaults\Templates Mac location is similar. Company files should either be in a common directory or use workgroup folders.
  16. This is a known issue and will be fixed an an upcoming service pack.
  17. Yes, just name your template "Default.sta"
  18. I could not reproduce your issue in a very quick test. What focus shape are you using? If you are using a custom focus shape the insertion point of the symbol could be different than you expect. Have you moved the user origin? I tested with a moved user origin and did not see any issues but moved user origins have caused problems in the past.
  19. If you have selected a Fixture Mode or GDTF Mode we obtain the DMX footprint from the selected mode and disable the footprint. If no mode is selected the DMX Footprint will be editable.
  20. If you chose to create a symbol when you converted to a lighting position the button will be disabled and there will be no geometry to edit when you enter the profile group. Look for the symbol name to be shown in the OIP and then you can find and edit the symbol in the resource manager.
  21. There is a known issue with the Truss parametric object. We have a fix planned for a future service pack.
  22. Probably. I know HES implemented some sort of connection over CITP but unfortunately Vision does not support CITP; it only supports the more modern NDI protocol.
  23. @Jonathan Gould It's up to HES/ETC. HES only created a dll library for windows. They would need to create a dylib for the Mac for Vision in order for the Mac application to use HogNet natively on the Mac.
  24. Be sure you install Vision AFTER installing or updating the MA DMX provider plug-in. We have been finding that the MA installer overwrites the DMX provider installed in the Vision folder. Unfortunately we don't have any control over the MA installer so we can't prevent the files from being modified. Tech support can walk you thru the process of reinstalling Vision or manually updating the file in needed.
  25. The export command is in 2019 but you will have to add it to the workspace. Remember, the GrandMA 2 does not support MVR, you have to use GrandMA 3. However, I recommend using Vectorworks 2020. The MVR specifications have been updated and only Vectorworks 2020 complies with the new specifications that GrandMA 3 is using.
