Common Schedule Dialog Box Features

All of the schedule dialog boxes work in a similar way. The buttons available that you use to create and modify records in the schedule are all the same. Learning how to use one of the dialog boxes allows you to know how to use the other dialog boxes.

New: Press this button to create a new record in the schedule. The record will be created with default information.

Copy: Press this button to copy the currently displayed record in the schedule. The newly created record will be created with the same information as the currently displayed record.

Save: Press this button to save any changes made to the currently displayed record in the schedule. If you make changes and do not press this button, you will be prompted to save your changes before selecting a new record or closing the schedule dialog box.

Delete: Press this button to delete the currently displayed record in the schedule. If there are any devices inserted on a drawing in the project that uses the record, you will not be able to delete it. You must first delete all the devices from the drawings, then you can delete the record.

Rename: Press this button to rename the currently displayed record in the schedule. Any labels on the drawing will be updated automatically to match the new name.

Find: Press this button to select a schedule record from a list of all the items in the schedule. The record you select will be displayed in the dialog box, allowing you to view and modify it.

For most schedules, a list of entries will be displayed.

For one-line devices, the Select One-Line Device dialog box will be used. On the left is a tree-view of all the one-line devices in the project. Devices are connected to each other as they are connected in the project. On the right is a list of all the one-line devices. The list on the right is grouped by type of one-line device, then sorted alphabetically within each type. When you select a one-line device in one of the lists, it is automatically selected in the other list.

Previous: Press this button to select and display the previous record in the schedule. The previous record is determined by sorting the entries in the schedule alphabetically. If you press this button when viewing the first record, it will wrap to the ending and display the last record.
