Inconsistant label legends

Recommended Posts

See attached screen shots...I have both fixtures set to display the "Right" label legend, showing Universe, Unit Number and Address. However, both look different and neither match the label legend master. 


My only idea is that it is based on the fixture type (moving head vs conventional)

Labels automatically adjust their position based on the bounding box of the symbol, they are not positioned relative to the other labels.

A label placed 6" in front of the fixture in the layout, it will always appear 6" in front of the fixture.

This keeps the label in front of the fixture if your fixture is 6" long or 6' long.

Since the bounding box for your moving light is larger the labels are further apart than your conventional fixture.

Thanks Kevin, that makes sense. But is there a way to make these consistent? I'd like the option for these to look the same across the entire drawing,
