Importing symbols

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am using VW Spotlight 12. This is a basic question, but.. How do I import fixture symbols? Say I want to plot a bunch of MAC 700's (which arent in the fixture libraries) onto my drawing.. I download which file and do what?

Download the file with the MAC 700 symbols to your computer. In your drawing, go the resource browser (where you would normally find your symbols). At the top of the resource browser, there is a drop down menu that will display all your favorite files (and therefore the symbols.) To the right of that, there is a triangle that points to the right. Click on the triangle, choose "add new favorite file". It will ask you to find the file on your computer. Once the file is added, then it will appear in the drop down menu.

I hope that helps
