jpvector, be sure to stop by the New Member Forum and introduce yourself? Do you work for Nemetschek or do you just know a lot about VW?Tim-
There are a couple of other viable options for you to learn Vectorworks Spotlight. First I'd recommend to you or anyone to start with watching overviews of how the product can work at the Spotlight product page. I'd also recommend contacting Resolve about their Vectorworks Spotlight 2008 training manual. It is pretty thorough and will be useful to you regardless of whether you are using 2008 or 2009. They have it listed with sample chapters on their site.
Lastly, there are other manuals in the production process that will likely be coming out in the coming weeks and months. If any of you ever have questions about options available to you to learn Vectorworks, you're welcome to contact me.
