    Is there a way to export a lighting plot from Vectorworks and get the lighting fixtures in WYSIWYG? Or do I have to redraw the whole plot?

    Hello Mark,

    Yes: export the VW file to DWG format, ensuring that the fixtures are exported as Blocks from VW, and when you import into WYSIWYG, simply replace the Blocks that are fixtures with fixtures from WYSIWYG's Library.


    Cheers,
