Weird view of lanterns in viewports

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

I'm trying to set up some viewports to get everything I need on to one page from a larger lighting plan, but for some reason in any 3D views, all of the lanterns are showing with the light source (which doesn't scale - two pics attached; one zoomed in and one zoomed out) and I can't for the life of me get rid of it!

 

The same issue is not present where viewports are not involved.

 

Any help much appreciated.

1. Open Vectorworks Preferences

2. Under the Display Tab, set Display Light Objects to "Only in wireframe" or "Never"

Amazing. Thanks so much. I'm sure I used to know how to do that but it's 10 years since I used VW.

What version are you using? If you are seeing render lights in a viewport then you have discovered a bug. If you have the latest of 2018, 2019, or 2020, please report this.
