s there a way to create a rigging key, much like a lighting key?


An easy cheat is to convert the hoists into lighting devices. They will then show up in the key. The graphic legend is another way to go.

Here's an example of some of the Graphic Legends (GL) that we ship with the Australian version for Spotlight that show Hoists, LX bars, Bridles, Truss, Ladders and so on.

As Pat says, GLs are the way to go and very powerful.

Fyi, I can finally share...

We're replacing the lighting instrument summary with a new Equipment Summary Key that can include all, yes, ALL, spotlight items. You'll see it in 2024.
Some great solutions have been offered above. One of which we can't do yet. ISO views. The summary is still top/down except for lights with GDTF files attached.
