2018 Focus Points

Recommended Posts

Running VWSL 2018 on a Mac running High Sierra. Working on a light plot and beginning to insert focus points. They begin at letter "T" and go from there...not A. I've made all of my layers visible and there are no stray focus points. Is there something else I need to reset? This has never happened to me before!

 

Time Passes......

Welp. I completely cleaned out the drawing, redrew most everything and copied in the scenery (after changing fills to "non" so as to look for anything hidden). STILL going A, S, T, U.... 

 

Seriously going to scream soon!

If you go to Tools > Custom Selection, execute a search immediately, and then set the parameters to Type - Is - Focus Point, does it report via the counter near the bottom of that box that there are other Focus Point objects in the document?

Does the same erroneous lettering happen in a new blank file for you as well, or only this current one?

So this is what I get...6.  And that is how many FPs I *think* I have.  Just tried it with a pure fresh drawing and it did you A B C...  For the life of me, I can't find these extra FPs...

 

Thanks Jim!

I'm just throwing things at the wall to see if anything sticks...I did an export to LW6 and Focus points / Purpose B-R were nowhere to be found.  Same result when running a channel or instrument report directly in VWSL.

also, remember that if there is ANYTHING named B-R, it will not use them.  naming is not restricted to each item, but in the entire drawing.  so if you have layers, classes, or symbols with a name B, it will not be allowed to be a FP name.
