Hi Kareen, Your viewport is not in top/plan. It needs to be in top plan to function! Your viewport is currently in top...


2D Lable Legend fields will only display in Top/Plan not top.

Hi Tom,

thank you for your help. But i need 3D Label in top view. Not a 2D Label in top/plan view. As the symbol are not the same in 2D than in 3D, i prefer to use 3D top view with a 3D label legend. In vectorworks 2019 this function not seem to work like it worked in the previous version (2017-2018).

OK, so you need to specify by fixture upon which view you would like the 3d lable legend displayed. I will attach a screen grab.... Bad news... Top isn't an option. Why do you need a 3d lable legend in a 2d top view?

You could just copy the 3d attributes of the symbol into the workspace and convert them to polygons and then paste them into the 2d attribute of the symbol. Fix the symbol rather than the legend. Avoid using top view as you have limited graphic control of the appearance of your plot.

Copy 3D attributes of the symbole in the work space could be a way to do it. I'm happy to only have 150 moving lights on the plan. But i found that when you use screen aligned in the obj info window the legend appear in 3D top view... Without the container... Well i will find way without the container..


Thanks for your help really appreciated.
