Insert Plan View Blocks in Another Area or Drawing

The Insert Plan View Blocks in Another Area or Drawing command is used to place distribution equipment that is 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 distribution equipment is modified in one area, it is automatically modified in the other area as well.

This feature is commonly used when placing distribution equipment on lighting and power plans.

To insert the distribution equipment plan view blocks in another area or drawing, go to

Ribbon: DM Electrical->Distribution Equipment-> dm_elec-panelUpdate Insert Plan View Blocks in Another Area or Drawing

Pulldown Menu: DM Electrical->Distribution Equipment->Insert Plan View Blocks in Another Area or Drawing

Insert Distribution Equipment Blocks in Another Area or Drawing Dialog Box

distribution-equipment--insert-plan-view-block-in-another-area-dialog-box

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

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

Specify point in alignment point area to use:

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

The distribution equipment 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.
