Custom Light issues




I'm having issues trying to create a custom lighting device in VW 2019, something I just did in 2018, but am no longer getting the results as expected. It's been several months since I last created a fixture so I'm assuming I've forgotten a step but I've gone back and rewatched the videos that I originally learned from so I'm not sure where I'm going wrong.


Basically, I'm creating the fixture in a separate drawing from my project, and when I've completed the process and I try to add it to either drawing it is still just a 2D/3D symbol instead of a Lighting Device even though it has a light info record attached. Does this sound like an easy fix with a step I'm overlooking? If not I can list out the steps in my process. Thanks in advance for any input!

@Josh S.The steps are basically the same in 2019 as they were in 2018. If you want to send me a copy of the file or device, I can figure out what went wrong.
