So it sounds like Hanging Positions are being phased out. If we are to switch to 'Insert Truss' tools, I have a few questions. 1) I'd like to have a data tag that shows truss system name, trim height, and length. I can make a tag that shows system name and object trim height, but I can't get the system length, only the length of 1 piece. Also, this only works if the truss is a system, not a group or a hanging position. Having to go to the OIP to select the system every time you want to move it is a pain. 2) I'd also like to make a worksheet with system name, overall truss length, trim height and truss counts. Similar to what you see when you use 'Replace truss'. I can make a worksheet with System name and components, but not quantities or trim. Anyone have suggestions on how to work make this work? The tutorials and Vectorworks U are obsolete. Truss Tags.pdf
Is it possible to replace truss that has been converted to a hanging position? I built a lighting rig and then found out that the supplier changed the size of the truss from what was in the drawing. I'm trying to change the type of truss in the hanging position but can't seem to do it as a group operation. I can delete each individual piece of truss and replace it one-by-one but that will take me forever. I've edited the position, selected the truss, tried replacing the truss but I can't seem to find a way to do it. Ideas? Thanks.
