This meeting began our journey working through the excercises in Kevin Lee Allen's book/manual "Entertainment Design: Scenery, Lighting, and Sound w/ Vectorworks Spotlight" published by Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. As he does in the manual we started by reviewing the Vectorworks environment, including reviewing all of the settings, discussing various palettes, user preferences, etc. We discussed saving a default drawing templates (stationary) with all of these settings, and we emphasized the value of creating and maintaining a User Folder.

Andy detailed several of his favorite features added in the new release (Vectorworks 2014), which including:

-X-Ray Select (allows you to see through solid 2D & 3D objects)

-improvements to the Seating Tool

-and Preview for the Mirror tool
