Focus Point Numbering

Recommended Posts

I work in a black box theatre with a pipe grid we have designated with numbers one direction and letters the other. Whenever I try to create a focus point that has either the same number or letter as a grid pipe, it tells me that name is in use. Is there a way around this?

In my experience, VW will only allow one object per name.

So you can't have a hanging position named "A" and a focus point named "A".

Pat Stanford just pointed out a great example of this. Try creating a class called "door" in a new document and then try to insert a door in a wall. Can't have a class named "door" and an object named "door".

Have you tried naming your positions "Pipe A" or "A Pipe"? Then you could use the shorter name for the focus points.

That is correct as far as I understand. It goes for everything from saved views. I saved a view and called it "1" I tried to make a label legend "1" same issue no luck.

Makes you start to have a appreciation when you are initially naming things on how you actually want to name them. Now SV1 and LL1
