    From time to time I cannot distribute fixtures. Not sure why that is. I'm trying right now to distribute 10 elation zfx pro's across a 130' of 20.5 truss. My distribute options are not available. Can anyone tell me why this is. I'd love the help. best

    Hi FadeUp,

    You cannot distribute across trusses. One reason is that in most cases it is fysicly impossible to hang a fixture in a certain place anyway. Common workaround is grouping a pipe along the truss, and hang your fixturtes there.

    You can distribute on a single pipe on a truss. But I've found that you can't do it on trusses you've broken up and put together again. It has to be "freshly" assembled.

    I would like to bump this problem.
    When u "freshly" assembly truss, and the autogroup is on, you can use this feature.
    when you ungroup the truss and regroup it, it is imposible to distrubute.

    i found a workaround on this, if u group truss, put all the lamps on one section of truss and hit distribute fixtures you can choose 2 ponts on the grouped truss.

    But i gues this is a bug?

    The reassemble truss tool fixes this.
