    It would be nice to have a "Rigging point" Data spreadsheet in Data mode, that could list all the drawn points, and you could fill in weights and load data easilyt in spreadsheet form, and then be able to print out tables to insert into layouts, etc.

    There currently is a "rigging point" tab in presentation mode in reports, but it no longer seems to be linked to the new rigging point system, and instead linked to the old library item.

    If you wanted to go COMPLETELY awesome you could somehow be able to export that data in some kind of customizable printable layout, like the fixture layout for the key items, and be able to print out stickers for complicated arena hangs, Which could have Motor type, position, load, and trim height variables.

    Thanks for these suggestions. A Rigging Points Spreadsheet in DATA mode is a natural progression of this feature; it has already been discussed and will be added as soon as possible--hopefully as early as R42, but I cannot guarantee this at this time.

    What you are describing with regards to Reports is only the case for old files that you open. Note that in such files, WYSIWYG automatically converts any Library Rigging Points to "drawn" Rigging Points. To see the Rigging Points List Report which references the "drawn" Rigging Points, you must add it: right-click in the Reports tab of the Shortcut Bar (but not on a Shortcut), click Add Default Report in the popup menu that appears, select the Rigging Points List Report in the dropdown of the window that appears, (change the name of the Report if you wish,) and click OK; this Report will be added at the end/bottom of the Reports Shortcuts tab. You do not need to do this in new files that you create in R41--but you can if, for example, you need multiple Rigging Points List Reports.

    A labelling feature such as the one you've described is already on the list for fixtures... and you are absolutely right: rigging could benefit from this too. This is most likely not coming in R42 though.


    Cheers,
