Designer + Spotlight Workspace

Question

Posted (edited)

Yearly thread to please add the Spotlight menu items & toolsets to the Designer workspace. Or create an 'Everything' workspace.

 

This doesn't require any engineering since users can create it themselves (but shouldn't have to).

Previous threads... 2019, 2018, 2017, 2015, 2014, 2010

 

Also bumping last years JIRA Enhancement Requests...

VE-99189 - Add Spotlight menus & tools to Designer workspace

VE-99190 - Allow selecting built-in Tool Set icons for custom Tool Sets in the Workspace Editor 

 

 

How to build a Designer + Spotlight workspace in VW 2020

 

1. Create a duplicate of the default Designer workspace and name it.

2. Add the Spotlight menus & commands. Here is a compare of the Designer vs Spotlight workspaces in VW2020. Add the green highlighted commands on the right side of the compare window to your workspace (except the Architectural submenu in Spotlight is already included under AEC in Designer).

3. Go to the Tools>Palettes and add the Dimension tools to your Basic toolset. The list of tools to add are on lines 941-947.

4. Add new tool sets for Lighting, Rigging, & Event Design. The list of tools to add are on lines 951-997.

5. Download the Lighting toolset icon here. Download the Rigging & Event Design icons here.

 

 

Attached is a Designer+Spotlight_2020.vww workspace with all the above changes. Windows users, navigate to and place the file in C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Nemetschek\Vectorworks\2020\Workspaces. Re-open VW and select it under Tools>Workspaces.

Hi In this topic I learned how to extract the original toolset pic from a workspace file. 
 

I shared the rigging and event design pics in one of my posts there.
