replacing truss in a hanging position

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to replace truss that has been converted to a hanging position?

I built a lighting rig and then found out that the supplier changed the size of the truss from what was in the drawing.

I'm trying to change the type of truss in the hanging position but can't seem to do it as a group operation.

I can delete each individual piece of truss and replace it one-by-one but that will take me forever.

I've edited the position, selected the truss, tried replacing the truss but I can't seem to find a way to do it.

It is possible to achieve what you want.


Select the hanging position that you want.

Under Spotlight > Object conversion > Replace with Stock symbols.

The pop up window will ask you what symbol you want to replace with.
