Spotlight Curtain Object plug-in missing


David Vogel

Recommended Posts

I am unfamiliar with this forum and how it works, but I have a persistent issue for which I am seeking help. For the past 3 versions of VW (2012, 2015 and now 2017, running on Mac OSX, now ver. 10.11.6), my Spotlight toolbox shows a red "X" where the Curtain Object tool ought to be, which gives me an error message. Any idea what I need to do to recover that tool? Here is the message I get:

  • An error occurred while opening the plug-in. Make sure that the plugin is located in the "Plug-ins" folder located in the User Data and Preferences Folder. See Vectorworks Preferences - User Folders tab.

I don't know what I am supposed to do in the Preferences - User Folders tab, and I cannot locate the plugin in any of the "Plug-ins" folders. Other plug-ins seem to be fine. Any help is appreciated!

Using the Workspace Editor, remove the tool from your workspace and then re-add it back. This can happen when the ID of a plugin changes from version to version in a customized workspace.
