Insert Plan View Blocks in Another Area or Drawing

The Insert Plan View Blocks in Another Area or Drawing command is used to place one-line devices that are already inserted in an alignment point area into another alignment point area. The second alignment point area can be on the same or a different drawing. When the one-line device is modified in one area, it is automatically modified in the other area also.

This feature is commonly used when placing one-line devices on lighting and power plans.

To insert the one-line device plan view blocks in another area or drawing, go to

DM Electrical->One-Line Devices->Insert Plan View Blocks in Another Area or Drawing

Redraw One-Line Blocks Dialog Box

One-Line Devices--Redraw One-Line Blocks Dialog Box

Select the devices to place in a new alignment point area and press OK.

If there is more than one alignment point area in your drawing, you will be prompted to select with area to use.

Specify point in alignment point area to use:

The one-line devices will be inserted in the area you select. If there is only one alignment point area in your drawing, the one-line devices will be inserted in that one area with no further input from you.

The one-line devices are located on the drawing relative to the alignment point. If they do not appear to be in the right location, first check that your alignment points are all in the same location on all your drawings.
