Hi All, If I create a custom lighting symbol, is it possible to add fixture modes to it? I see they are available for VW stock library fixtures and I know I can assign one of them once the custom symbol is created but I would like to add all the relevant modes for the fixture when I create it. I just can't seem to find how you access this info, or create it myself, when creating your own symbols. Thanks simon
Noticed that my lighting fixtures (spotlight - theatrical symbols - all custom) keep disappearing when I zoom. I thought maybe there was a scale discrepancy, but after checking that and checking to make sure that my class and layer options are all correct, I started futzing with the Fixture Mode dropdown. When I am able to select the fixtures, even if their fixture mode is already set to none, if I grab that dropdown menu and set them to none again, suddenly they don't disappear. This is true across the board, no matter what symbol or what fixture mode. Setting them to none makes them all stay. Edit: Day 2 - I have to do this once every time I open the file. And it seems that syncing with Lightwright also makes me have to do this again.

Got very excited when i saw a dropdown for "Fixture Mode" in the Obj Info palette but then noticed its only for vision integration. Would be great if we were able to custom create fixture modes that get attached to a fixture type, and have a place for this dropdown to be integrated into report worksheets, or into they instrumentation key. Instead of mickey-mousing a user field or some other field to hold this data.
