Truss Symbols Not Loading


I recently installed the educational version of vectorworks onto my desktop at home and downloaded the appropriate symbol libraries but for some reason all my horizontal (vertical are fine) trusses have no actual symbol, simply a rectangle with the truss name/length inside. What could be causing the issue, and what should I do to solve it?

When you placed the truss symbols, they include several classes that come in to your document along with the content. Turn off the class "Rigging-Truss-Simplified" and the masking rectangles will be hidden to expose the full glorious truss geometry.

Cheers, that was really confusing me.
