  1. Cable Swag Tool to show cable swags from point to point and/or dropping off truss.
  2. Spotlight Truss count tool... We have a Lighting Label Legend plugin to summarize Lighting Object names and qtys. Can we have a plugin to summarize Straight Truss and motor size, length, and qty?
  3. GDTF importer for Vision Symbols... maybe the physical form can be based on the 3D info from the Vectorworks file and the attributes can be defined by GDTF?
  4. Easy way to get a Vision Render onto a sheet layer in Vectorworks.
  5. Auto DMX Address & DMX Universe population based upon “Univ/Address” entry in Address field.... This would be useful to see how many channels are needed for a lighting position before patching that lighting position.
  6. Channel Qty column and/or dmx attribute breakdown chart or pane in Lighting Object Fixture Mode window. For example, if a Lighting Object is 3ch... is it HSI? Or RGB? Or neither?
  7. VWX Lighting Object Fixture Mode Search for a quicker way to find fixtures than the currently used tree structure.
  8. Hi Guys, Anyone having this issue with the instrument summary text? All text disappears. The only way to solve it at the moment is inserting a new summary which is a pain since I need to re-do all my summary settings every time. Thanks in advance.
  9. Ok, I can't figure out how to build truss towers with the insert truss tool. There is no hanging position option with the TomCat truss. Also cant find a truss base objest. Help?
  10. I know there are some workarounds for this, but it'd be nice to just have the option to have fixtures excluded from paperwork in the object info panel. Either that or being able to select the classes that the paperwork will create from. I have a class for all standard fixture elements, but I also have a separate class strictly for house lights, so I can visualize with them on. Being able to remove them somehow in a native feature would be brilliant.
  11. Please make the SpotLight Truss Tool snap to the nearest rounded up or down whole number. I have never used a stick of truss that is 20' 4.3242". This would be a big time saver (and ridicule from the riggers, when I forget to fix one) Thanks Mark
  12. Hi I can't really understand why it is not possible to focus a light without implementing a specific focuspoint. It seems super obvious that one should be able to choose a single or multiple instruments and simply write 45 dgr tilt or pan. In a similar way to how the 3D orientation works now, but only functioning on the yoke. Unless one is working with the specific purpose of making accurate visualisations, making a focus point for almost every single lighting instrument is an enormous ekstra workload and even produces a worse end-product, when creating the paperwork, when most people want every instrument to line up in nice and clean 0, 30 or 45 degree angles. I may be wrong, and this funktion somehow already has existed for years without me finding it... as it should, because this seems to me to be the most obvious feature that one would need when drafting lighting plots.
  13. OK, so plot done, dropboxed to shop, all is well, til the swaps, count and other changes occur. Deadlines are now, as they tend to be at this point in the process. The Instrument Summary tool in 2019 appears to be failing. Please see attached movie, where you'll notice truncated text in the "Build List" tool, swapping out for the correct item fails repeatedly / continuously, so no fresh plot to the shop. SO not good. Since productivity on this project has stopped, I took the time away from other projects to reach out here for assistance. All help gratefully received! No, I can not upload the file, nda and all that. Yes, I did check to be sure all items are attached to hanging position. EDIT: Just chatted with Juan in Priority Support, who says this is a known problem without a current fix, but with a workaround: "Add a dummy field as last item, so that becomes the hidden item" or words to that effect. I'll report back here shortly. OK, the workaround works: 1] created, then added a dummy fixture to document resource folder 2] executed the steps as shown in second movie, which basically equates to adding the dummy fixture as the last item in the summary But you'll also notice that when multiple Inst Summaries are selected and acted upon, only the first in that selection becomes modified, so every single summary must be touched individually, in order correct the issue. Upwards of thirty of those on my current document. Anyone know why this is? Inst Sum Nightmare.mp4 Instrument Summary Nightmare workaround.mp4
  14. In the attached photo is a custom position label symbol, with a custom record format. I am experiencing an issue where the symbol does not refresh to its previous data when executing the undo command. The top symbol shows the 'Position Label Field' with the default value P-##, and the bottom field shows the 'Position Label Field' with the modified value from the Spotlight Numbering tool, using the Object with Record option, 1. For this example I executed the undo command, and as you'll see in the OIP it reverts to the original field data, however a nudge will be required to refresh the symbol so it will update. The action of nudging symbols after undoing a numbering action is not ideal. Has anyone else had this experience?
  15. It would be great if you could place a camera operator in Spotlight and click on them to see their view. Also with the ability to change the camera settings the same way that a camera operator would. I know that you could insert a camera on top of an operator but it would be great to click on the camera position and be able to see what they see. Also include pan, tilt, and zoom relative to what the camera could do. Thanks!
  16. I have a large convention center project with many separate areas. I want to put a hoist worksheet on my viewport. But I do to want all the hoist to show up. How do i sort the criteria for the worksheet. Do I need to create a worksheet for each area? Thanks!
  17. Hi there! simply question : its possible to have a full library from Litec ? to works better with Braceworks web:https://www.litectruss.com/products/ Library: - Trusses - Conical trusses - Libera system - High load Trusses - Towers - Flytowers Thanks in advance.
  18. I wish you could reshape distributed loads with the reshape tool rather than trying to edit the path which won't allow you to see the underlying objects to snap your adjustments to.
  19. 1. With the UI change in the numbering window, you can click on Channel and set the start and increment, etc. in the top right box. Then you can select another field (like Unit #) and set those attributes. It'd be great if I could do multi directional numbering as well (i.e - channels left to right and unit numbers right to left). I'd love to be able to set that on a per field basis. 2. We should be able to drag and resort the field. Who uses Left Shutter Depth on a regular basis? At the very least, we should be able to select what is displayed so we can save sets!
  20. Hello! I'm having trouble using the new spotlight numbering tool in VW 2019. I can't seem to get fixtures to take the channel info. I've attached a video of the problem. Any ideas? Rx VWX Problem.mov
  21. I'm working in Designer, and when switching to the Spotlight workspace, the tool set palette is not visible. When I turn it on, it shows as an empty gray rectangle. I can move it around, but not access any tools or dock it. When I switch to other workspaces, I do not have the same problem - the tool sets are there, and working. Is this something I can fix myself? Best, Palle
  22. I'm trying to create a worksheet that auto calculates spare lighting fixtures. So far I have it setup a database row that shows symbol image, instrument type, count per fixture. I want to add a column that calculates spares. I want the spare fixture count to be 15% of the total count. I would also like this number rounded up to the nearest whole number. For example, if I have 5 fixtures, instead of the column saying .75, I want it to say 1. I have tried using the Round command. I've been trying =(Round(C3*.15)+1). In my head that should get me a minimum of 1. What always seems to happen is the formula is calculated on the total of all the fixture below, instead of each row. See Image. My next question is, how do I set the row height for the cells in 3.*. I know I can select the cells and change the height, but I want to change the default height for those cells, so anytime I add a fixture to the drawing it gets added at the correct height? Thanks.
  23. Hi All, I am currently learning how to create walkthrough animations for models created in Vectorworks Spotlight. The only problem I seem to have is not being able to adjust the time duration on the Move Along Path option and the animation is far too fast. Is there something I am missing? Please see attached screenshot... Thank you 🙂
  24. Hi VWX team, how do I turn off all beam directional markers while in Viewport? I inserted LEd and moving lights and created a viewport and have these directional arrows and angle markers that I want to turn off but can't seem to locate any settings for this thanks!
  25. Hi all Apologies if what I am seeing is something obvious I am just missing. Instead of a BLACK stroke according to the Attributes palette, a portion of a soft goods group has a RED stroke. I've tried changing it to a different color and back again with no affect. Appreciate the input! I've attached a photo.
