Insert Feeder ID

The Insert Feeder ID command is used to insert ID tags for feeders on the drawing.

Each row in the feeder schedule can be assigned a number. The feeder ID will contain the corresponding number. Inserting feeder IDs is an alternative to labeling each feeder with the full feeder callout. The numbers in the feeder IDs will update as rows are added and removed from the feeder schedule. See the Insert Feeder Schedule section for more information about inserting the feeder schedule on the drawing.
