Beam & Field Angles - Draw Beam and Mirror command

Recommended Posts

Here is a little and annoying bug that I have found. If I have a lighting symbol focused to a focus point and then I mirror the fixture (to allow the legend to fit) the beam angle and the field angle go off in different directions. The field angle is still on the focus point. The beam angle is going in the exact opposite direction. Is this something that others are finding? Is there a fix for this?

Instead of mirroring the instrument, use the "Rot:" field in the object info palette and type "+180" after the degree that is there, or just manually enter the angle of the direction you want the light to be pointing in.
