Focus Point Shape

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to add a custom "focus point shape" to the "focus point" tool so that it is available in the drop down every time I use it?

thanks,

-Henry

Henry,

To add items to the list you just need to create a file with your custom symbols then place the file in your Vectorworks user folder ..\Libraries\Defaults\Focus Points\

Restart Vectorworks and you should now see your custom symbol shape names as choices.

In VW 2018 this seems not to work. Did the method to add custom shapes change?

You need to make sure that the custom shape is saved as a symbol within a file. That file needs to be placed as Kevin described above. The path for the file can be found by going to Preferences and under the User folders tab press "reveal in finder". It works fine in my copy of 2018.
