  1. Many thanks! This is the one I was trying to find because of its detailed wishlist. Have a good one!
  2. I was re-reading this thread from June and again saw this reference. Do you have a link to @fuberator's thread? I can't seem to find it. Thanks.
  3. The Landru Design version of that tool tracks everything you list, plus a few other things. This version will also let you display everything except manufacturer (unless you use the Note field) in text blocks embedded in the given PIO instance. See the link in my sig for more info.
  4. Actually, I don't necessarily want this automated. I'd like to be able to control when this field (and, possibly, others) gets written/updated.
  5. What is the current syntax for using VS to write to fields in the newer (2021) format TB data format?
  6. A "No" for me. While the attributes you cite ARE important, I don't consider them within the VW environment. Qualities like beam/field angle and output ARE things I need within VW...
  7. Change the default character for "Universe/Address" on the "Lighting Devices/Parameters" tab in the Spotlight Preferences dialog.
  8. At-present, no, The tool only uses the stands it creates on-the-fly.
  9. We are happy to announce that all of our tools have been updated to make them Vectorworks 2022®-compatible! In addition to the usual on-going refinement, you might also notice minor additions and tweaks like "Vendor" and "Cost" fields, hardware Texture control for SoftGoods 2, and 3D Text Blocks for the Staging ToolSet tools. All of the tools will work in any "flavor" of Vectorworks 2018-2022. If you're a current user, you should have received upgrade details in the last few days. If you'd like more info, please visit https://www.landrudesign.com/VWPlugIns.htm Happy Vectorworking!
  10. Is the issue w. the Spotlight version or the Landru Design version?
  11. ...and...while the content is a few years old, this video outlining building your own custom projectors, TVs, and stands is still relevant and might be helpful:
  12. You can copy the Symbol into yiur current file. If the Symbol has the correct Record attached (and, the data is correct) the PIO will recognize and use it.
  13. Yes, that is what I meant. Sorry, the functionality you're wanting isn't part of the mix at this time...
  14. Have you tried using the "Classes..." button at the bottom of the OIP? You can assign some or all of the parts to Classes using that dialog.
