Insert Switch Dialog Box

Switches--Insert Switch Dialog Box

Switch Type: Select the type of switch to be inserted. The list of switches available is defined in the Switch Project Schedule command.

The default values for the switch are specified based upon the chosen switch type.

Group: This value is used to indicate the group to which a switch belongs, typically a lower case letter. This value is displayed next to the switch and the devices connected to a switch, indicating which switch is controlling which fixtures in a room. If the group label on a switch is modified, all connected devices will be updated automatically.

Subscript: The subscript for the switch. Subscripts are inserted like notes, but they are rotated to match the angle of the switch. If Variable Subscript is not checked in the switch project schedule, the subscript value will be fixed for the individual switch and cannot be changed.

Elevation: The elevation of the switch. See the Elevation section for more information.

Layer System: See the Layer System section for more information.

See the Common Switch Information section for more information about the Drawing Notes in this dialog box.
