Vectorworks Resource library spotlight instruments disappear

Question

I am trying to import spotlight instruments from the user library. The symbol shows up in my resource browser and I can insert it onto my plan view. But when I switch from top view and then back to plan view the symbols disappear. The legend remains but the fixture is gone.

I know this may sound silly, but check that the Lighting classes are on.  if they are off, it will affect visibility.

Vectorworks 2017 seems kind of bug-ee. I just got the new service packet and every time I double click on a spotlight symbol it switches from plan to 3d top and instruments from the VW library disappear. I checked the class visibility  and they are all on. It doesn't seem to be because of class. Also, in the Spotlight find and Modify no longer recognizes selected lights.

can you post a copy of your file here, that may help us see what you have going on and why this is happening to you.  I worked in 2017 for over a year and never saw this kind of issue.

When I opened the file, the class Lighting-LED was off, and that is what the S4 Mini is classed as in the source document we ship.  turn that on and it shows up.
