Manage Bridle Parts

Hi Juay

I'm guessing from the lack of slings that you are using the default Spotlight bridle parts library, which doesn't contain any round slings.

You can create your own custom bridle parts library with slings and other objects by opening the Stock Bridle.vwx library file.

Its located in your application folder>Libraries>Defaults>Stock Bridle Material

and can be edited like any other library file.
Bridle parts should be stored in the file resources and have to have the BridleItemRecord attached to them to be classed as bridle parts

The record defines the parts behavior with the bridle tool and object.

Once you have added the new parts save the file back into the same location, make sure to create a back up of it as well as it will likely get overwritten if there is a update to the default libraries.

open a new empty file,

open the bridle parts manager and hit the update button to import the new parts into Spotlight.

You should then have access the newly created bridle parts


Let me know if you have any more questions
