Label Ledgend? Lighing instruments?


Hello wonderful community


Ive chosen to work in a blank document instead of a Spotlight template.

In the blank document the lighting instrument  Dont show colorfilter and ch-number etc.


Is there an easy way to turn on that function in a blank document.


ps. Its not the mistake of dragging the symbol into the drawing instead of placing a lighting instrument.

which i used to make the picture example.


Thank you for your time.

Hi there,


you can create custom label legend in the label legend Manager. If you create a new one you can choose what information should be displayed in the label. After creating the label legend you need to edit the 2d and 3d(if you also want a 3d Layout) and drag the textfields of the information to your desired position. You can also check up this page from VW.

Thank you for trying to help me.

The problem is really that I have one document where it is working and one where it is not working.

Like on the picture. It is the same instrument, but in 1 document it appears with "informationbubbles" and in another one not.


I cannot figure out how to see the "informationbubbles" in the document that seems to have an issue.

could it be that the label legend assigned to the bottom picture is "none"?
