Hi! New user here, but long-time CAD monkey. Two questions:

1. I'm hunting for a COLORado I and II Tour symbol. Even if there's one that's pretty similar in another library and I can re-name it as Chauvet, that's fine by me.

2. Is there a way to create blocks, like in AutoCAD? For example, I want to make a Bar-of-6 PAR bar. From what I've read, there isn't one in the Library. So, if I place six PAR 64s, then hang them off a bar to make it reasonably similar to my bars, how do I make this so I can put it in the library? I don't want to have to copy and paste them all the time, since I use them very often.

Also, where do I find the ACL's?

Cheers!

1)There are some similar LED Pars in our libraries that ship, Can't think of the symbol right off the top of my head, sorry.

2) Symbols can be made up of other symbols. make up your bar of 6 pars, select all the objects that you want in the symbol. Modify>create symbol, and set as you want in the options that open up. You can then go in and edit in the resource browser, if it's not 100% correct or needs to be tweaked.

The 2015 version in the downloads section is missing one of the 2 files that are in the 2014 version. Any insight, JimW?

No clue, Ill ask the content folks. Normally these just get format updated through the years unless the actual lineup changes.
