  1. The name of the light position is visible--and I can select it, but the vertex handles also seem to indicate that nothing is present in plan view other than the position name.
  2. I am having a frustrating time setting up my lighting grid in V. 12.5. I want to draw my grid as a collection of 3D object pipes so I can assign the correct z value above the stage floor and create an accurate section view. However, everytime I convert a 3D object into a light position it dissapears in top/plan view. It reappears accurately in a side or isometric view, so I know it is there. But I need the plan view representation so I can place my lighting instruments. I tried creating a symbol from a 3d obj first and then inserting it with the light position object tool. The created symbol worked in all views, but as soon as I placed it as a light position it once again dissapeared in plan. The 2D light positions I create work just fine (but obviously don't project into 3D views.) I'm working in show/snap/modify for classes, I have a few classes set to invisible as they would crowd the drawing, but "none" is set to visible. This just doesn't make sense. Is this just an inherent problem? Is there a way around it? Right now I'm about to tear my hair out.
