How do I add the Address field to Label Legend in Spotlight VW2018?

All I can use is U Address Field

 

Dude what are you talking about?

It's the same we always did. I just made this one from scratch, and the address field is in the label legend editor.

I've learned not to include the Universe in the legend, and set spotlight to use universe labeling. so I get an address that is 1/101 in the address field.

Yeah. 2018 has been giving me fits so far. I'm less than impressed. Older drawings especially seem to be an issue.

Could you explain where you can set this?  And can you choose your delemiter there also? I’d be interested to use this setting.

Sebastian,  It is set/enabled in File>Document Settings>Spotlight Preferences...

Then you get 3 tabs

Lighting Device-you can edit each Lighting Parameter(These lighting parameters will show up in label legend to be selected and Object Info Palette-OIP)

Universe-you can edit the Universes in the show or leave as Manual (how I use it, then have Lightwright manage my Universe settings)

Lightwright- You can edit/choose what is exchanged with Lightwright

I use Lightwright to display my universe settings, as I changed them often to reflect what I am doing.

My issue was the original file had rearranged all the Lighting Parameters and I did not see "address" as number/layer parameter 58. Normally it is 12

Hope this helps, the Lightwright site has info on this subject also.

Mike

Anny chance you can provide a step by step on how to accomplish the 1/101 display?  Been racking my brain and its getting pretty frustrating.

 

Thanks in advance.
