Replace symbol with hoist symbol issues

Recommended Posts

Hello there!

So, I am looking for a way to take multiple selected objects or symbols, and convert them to the PLUGIN hoist symbol.  I can easily achieve this with either loci points (or autocad points I am trying to convert, which is what spurred this process trying to convert all hoists instead of click on one at a time) and replace them with the hoist symbol, it just does not have the hoist options in the SHAPE field that the standard hoist symbol would have if you used the insert hoist tool.  I have made sure to attach the hoist record report in the DATA section, or to make sure the record of the new symbol (the hoist symbol) is used when it replaces the previous object, and still no native hoist editable fields in the SHAPE menu for the object.
