Channel without fixture

Postby peschermer » Mon Jan 02, 2023 3:09 pm


I'm using LXplan to create a simple lightplot of our standard setup.
With that, we have a couple of dimmer positions that do have a dimmer number (obviously) but do not always have an actual fixture attached to them.
is there a icon in the library that lets me add a number, like a circle, or can I edit/make my own fixture icon?

thank you.

You can put a number in a box easily by drawing a circuit text field. To do this, choose Format->Tool->Text Tool->Circuit, select the text tool, draw a field and enter the number.

Use, Format->Info Fields->Mark All Used Circuit Fields to automatically change a circuit field from available to used. You can also do this manually by selecting the circuit field and checking the box in the Inspector's info table.
