Default Instrument Insertion Tool

Recommended Posts

How do you make the Instrument Insertion tool the default symbol insertion tool rather than the 2D insertion tool? That would save a lot of headache right now.

I don't think you can. It would be a great wish list item: Double Clicking a Lighting Instrument symbol choose the Instrument Insertion tool by default.

I agree I have never figured out why this hasn't been the default.

I guess people want to be able to place 2d/3d icons that are not instruments, but the reason escapes me.

I am sure we will why.

I will place 2d symbols into the Symbol Key and Legend. I don't like the way VW generates the Key, so I make my own. I place as a 2d symbol so it doesn't get confused with my export to Lightwright.

The issue that I am finding with 2009 is that when I go to insert an instrument for the first time when I start, the tool defaults into "pick-up and make active" mode. Once, I switch to insert, I am fine for the rest of my session.

Take care,

John
