Spotlight label legends: duplicating breaks them

Question

Posted (edited)

In VW2020 SP 2.1 on a mac,  whenever I duplicate a label legend, it breaks inside the label legend manager.  I can still arrange legend through editing the 2D components.   But if I choose the legend in the manager and try to edit the fields, the base symbol is blank and selecting it says "The resource list is empty".  When I cancel out of the window, there is a vector script error which says "Error on line=1: _1979  _1982  - Index outside array limits."

 

It appears that label legends can no longer be duplicated then modified.  This is a serious workflow issue for large files.

I think in the meanwhile a workaround could be to duplicate them in the recourse manager in stead of in the legend manager. Could you try that?

I have done it both ways.  The resource manager is where I duplicated them first, and found them broken.  So I tried from within the manager.  That also did not work.

Ok that sucks, did you also report it to tech support? They can file the bug for you.

 

I heared more people with this issue where duplicating from the recourse manager did work. So your issue might be different?

We believe this happens in some file contains more than about 10 Label Legends in the document.

You should see the fix in an upcoming service pack.

Well, I hope that service pack comes soon.  I'm in a different file now, and started creating label legends from scratch.  Once I got past that "about ten" limit, the new ones started failing.  2020 isn't going to be very useful if I can't put legends on my fixtures.

hi @SamIWas

 

I wonder if this is a workaround:  

 

try to make the extra legends that you need in a blank file. Less than ten at a time. 
 

And then import those into the file you are working on. 
 

maybe that will keep them from breaking.

I will probably try that tonight.  I can make  the label legends fine.  It's editing their settings later that becomes an issue.  Luckily, this is not something I have to do very often.
