Can I change a fixture type within Vision without re-exporting from Vectorworks? Or do I have to delete the fixture and add a new one?

Bummer. I had to do a lot of fixture tweaking in Vision and didn't really want to re-export from VW. Maybe I'll try deleting it and adding a new fixture.

We are very sorry for this and realized the missing feature not long ago. I'm trying to get it bumped up on the priority list. Hopefully using MVR makes things a little easier in the short term 😉 I assure you, this is something we'd like to get resolved sooner than later as it has caused a lot of users headache!

Thanks. It's just frustrating. I had VW build me a profile for a PRG Best Boy GC to replace a standard Best Boy. I thought that it would be a simple swap. I've done a bunch of fixture adjustments in Vision, so I really don't want to have to re-export the drawing from VW. I may just delete the fixture and add in the proper one.


I also had an issue with Vision not showing the new profile even after you guys had uploaded it and I updated fixtures in Vision. I had to have him send me the wad file to get it incorporated. This happens on a Mac and a PC.
