Virtual Devices / Edit Device

Recommended Posts

Few related questions for you @Conrad P!


I created a device, and accidentally had the "create virtual" selected. I can't seem to find the command to make it non-virtual. Any thoughts apart from re-creating the device?

In previous versions, you could edit the entire device (or socket) via the "edit" tool. I used this so much, I mapped it to a hot-key on my mouse. Has this tool disappeared for 2020 in leu of double-clicking on the device to open it for editing?

Hi Josha


Nothing to worry about there. A virtual device is just one that has zero physical dimensions. Select the device and edit the dimensions in the Object Info Palette and when you use Update Rack Elevation to create equipment items from the devices it will work.
