    I just wanted to say creating custom hybrid truss libraries in VecotrWorks sucks the big one....

    But I now have a custom library of hybrid symbols for all of christie lites A type truss.

    Tomorrow is B type.

    That is all.

    Did you seperate it out by cord? US bottom DS bottom US top DS top? :twisted:

    Symbol making is always a PTA but better than TV on a rainy day.

    It was a snowy day... i'm in Canada right now.

    Nope no separation, I just measured some truss and made it look pretty. Versus the stupid truss tool.
    The reason I didn't label it like that is because it makes paperwork to hard to read. I would rather know the fixtures are on truss 1 then cord 1 truss one. Thats what fixture notes are for.

    Thats one of my big issues with vectorworks, the lack of a legit truss library. One big advantage of WYG.
