Change of symbol name in Instrument summary

Recommended Posts

Hi all 


I keep running into a situation, not being able to change the symbol name of custom lighting fixtures in the Instrument summary. 

Can anyone point me in the right direction? 


I have made a demo file with a custom fixture, drawn completely by me. 

It works fine, and the name follows the one in my resource manager. 


However, I tried to copy a S4 36dg. 

The copy seems to interact with the original, both in the count, and the name. Even after changing names in resource manager, and the symbol name in the OBJ. 


I guess I am missing a point here.

Lighting Symbol Maintenance....


Double click on the fixture you want to rename


Edit  Model Name and Type


Go back to your Symbol Key and rebuild the list with the new Fixture Model Name. 


Have a look at my Mac Quantum Wash in the images below.
