  1. Newbie here. I unfortunately have about 50 colortran 5/50 leko's. The symbols for them in Vectorworks size them at about 40" long when reality is closer to 28". ETC, Varilite, HES, Altman all appear to be sized correctly. Am I doing something wrong? Are there correct symbols available (I just upgraded to 12.5 yesterday) other than buying Shelley's? Is my only option to learn how to modify them and do so thus making new symbols for myself? Thanks,
  2. I didn't get a chance to take a scale to the drawings until today. They are large by about 7/8" per foot (1/4" & 1/2" scale drawings). Any thoughts on what could be causing them to be off by so much? Thanks,
  3. Thanks all. The 'export to pdf' was apparently in the 12.5 update so appeared when I installed that and all worked well. I was glad to see that the resolution seemed good after reading of others having problems with export and having to use print to pdf. Andrew, thanks for the heads up on the driver. I was not aware of it. 3 different Kinko's that I'd talked to about printing had never mentioned it and when I picked up some prints this morning they were not aware of it. I downloaded and attempted to install it, but it would not complete an install on 2 different computers (said it couldn't find some file, but wouldn't say which one) so I gave up. In the future it might be a good solution if they can get it to work. Thanks again... Now on to figuring out how to use Vectorworks.
  4. Thanks all. I'll give 995 a shot. Katie, there is no Export PDF option. I am running v12.0 on a XP PC. Licenses prods include Designer, Renderworks. Thanks,
  5. Thanks Alan. I wasn't sure if VW included a driver or not. I'd seen 995 as well as EasyPDF ($19) and a few others for $10 - $50. Do you use 995? What problems have you run into with it? It scares me a bit because it looks like it installs an adware/spyware app. Thanks,
  6. Newb here. The only way Kinko's will print is from a PDF file. I have been unable to find that option in Vectorworks (v12 on WinXP SP2). The only manual implies that PDF is only available in the Mac version which would make it useless to us. A post down below mentioned adding it but I have been unable to figure out how. Any assistance anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Walk
