Speaker Array-Symbolname disappear in Worksheet

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

in Vectorworks 2021 it's possible to use real Symbols in the Speaker Array Tool. So far so good, I'm really happy about this feature.

One thing amazes me. It seems that the Symbols disappear in the worksheets if you set angles inside the Speaker Array, which we'll always have.

In the attached Picture you can see the Problem. 

Array 1 is without angles.

Array 2 with a Bumper Angle

Array 3 with Bump/ Sub at 0° and Speaker at -4° 

 

Worksheet Count in the first Situation is good.

 

Does somebody has any idea what I have to change or is this a bug?

 

Thank you in advance

This isn't a bug.  When Speaker PIO objects have Tilt values other than 0,  the Symbols contained in the PIO "wrapper" are no longer seen as Symbols by the rest of Vectorworks - and, therefore, by the Worksheet system.  So, your best bet will be to create a Worksheet based on Speaker instances instead of Symbols.

 

Does that make sense and/or help?

Hi Andrew,

 

thank you very much for your quick response. That helped me to understand what happened.

Unfortunately, I feared that. 

 

I hoped to get rid of several different Worksheets (Worksheet Query) for getting a Symbolcount for our Warehousetool with the cool new features.

 

Anyway I like the new speaker array tool.

Thank you.
