Schedule Notes: A note that will appear below the schedule when inserted on the drawing.

Maximum Schedule Height: Whether the schedule has a maximum height. This height corresponds to inches on the printed page.

If this is not checked, the schedule will be in a single schedule.

If this is checked, you can specify the maximum height of the schedule. When the schedule exceeds this height, it will be continued in a second schedule next to the first. The label of the second schedule will have the Schedule Title Continued Label option added to it to indicate that it is a continuation of the first schedule. See the Schedules options section for more information.

Specify on Drawing: Press this button to specify the Maximum Schedule Height on the drawing. The dialog box will be closed and you will be prompted to specify the height.

Specify maximum schedule height:

The distance that you enter on the drawing will be used as the maximum height. It is simplest to draw a line straight down to where the bottom of the schedule should be located.

Zoom to Schedule After Insertion: If this box is checked, the display will be moved to the schedule location after it has been inserted or updated. Check this box if you are having difficulty locating your schedule on a busy drawing.

Show Unused Receptacles: Whether receptacles in the schedule that have not been inserted on a drawing will be displayed in the schedule.

Show Subscript on Symbols: Check this box to display the subscript note in the symbol column of the schedule. The subscript note is defined in the project schedule.

Receptacles--Display Susbscript on Symbols Checked

If this box is not checked, the symbol column will display the receptacle symbol without the subscript note.


Edit Title, Column Labels, and Column Order: Press this button to modify the layout of the receptacle schedule on the drawing. See the Edit Receptacle Schedule Project List section for more information.

Inserting or Updating the Schedule On the Drawing

To insert or update the schedule, press the OK button.

Inserting the Schedule the First Time

If the receptacle schedule is not currently inserted on the drawing, you will be prompted for the insertion location of the schedule.

Specify insertion point for receptacle schedule:

The location you specify will be used as the top-left corner for the receptacle schedule.

Updating the Schedule Already on the Drawing

If the receptacle schedule is already inserted on the drawing, it will be updated in its current location.

It is necessary to update the schedule on the drawing when you make changes to the project schedule. The schedule will not update automatically.

The receptacle schedule will also be updated when the Update All Schedules and One-Line Diagram command is run.

If you have manually inserted graphics, such as revision clouds, over the schedule graphic, always be certain to check their location after updating the schedule.
