    Cable Tool Info

    I've been playing with the new cable tools in VW2017. I am wondering if there is any way for the tools to drop the info for whatever jumper into it's associated fixture. For example, if I am using the "Assign Multicable Circuits" tool it is assigning circuit name, circuit number, as well as dropping a cable into the drawing based on your settings. Is there a setting or way to have that cable input into a field in the fixture. So in addition to assigning circuit name and number it would also put "5' L6-20" into a "Jumper" field or "10' 5pin DMX" into a "Data" field. Is this something that already exists or can be done within the current version? This would allow cable fields to be exported to Lightwright 6 which I think would make managing the cable info created in Vectorworks much easier.
  2. Need to be able to display specific cable breaks and have them update the cable parts. When trying to do this manually, and change part one to a specific length, part 2 will not automatically recalculate to achieve the same desired overall length. Also, is there a way to format how the text displays on the cable tools?
