symbol key

Recommended Posts

i have a question about the instrument summery tool (symbol key) in vectorworks spotlight. 

when i'm using the "data visualization tool" i can color the fixture very fast and very nice, but when i go to make the symbol key the color of the fixture is not shown, instead there is a list with color square and the name from the "data visualization tool".

is there a way to make the fixture symbol in the symbol key list with the color from the "data visualization tool"?

The key maintains properties of the symbol but doesn’t have any Lighting Device data, so you can, for example, use the Light Info record to set colors in the Summary via Data Viz. 


I actually think this is correct behavior, as you can theoretically set Lighting Devices using the same symbol to different instrument types.
