Rotating Light Positions, Label legend Problems

Recommended Posts

Hi! First forum post alert!


After I select a pipe (set as lighting position) and rotate 180, the pipe disappears and label legend displays "No valid symbol selected."

Also, the containers' spacing is changed in relation to the in strument symbol. See before and after rotation screenshots. All help is appreciated!


Using VWX2016

Easy enough fix. I just had to re-run label legend and it fixed it. Not really sure why the pipe position went away though. Im guessing it has to do with how VWX recognizes the axis to rotate. I was grabbing all fixtures and pipe together. Interesting though, a curved pipe rotated with the instruments without any issues, label legend or otherwise.

The fixtures should rotate happily enough with the position. This has been greatly improved lately and you can now adjust a 3D position and the fixtures will follow....
