Labels and Schedules

This section describes how to customize the layout of the light fixture schedule and calculation area schedule on the drawing.

Common Schedule Dialog Box Information

Buttons

Move Up: Move the selected row up in the list. For schedule dialog boxes, this moves the corresponding column to the left. For labels, this moves the corresponding row up.

Move Down: Move the selected row down in the list. For schedule dialog boxes, this moves the corresponding column to the right. For labels, this moves the corresponding row down.

Grid Rows

For schedules, the first row is the schedule title. It cannot be moved. The schedule title always appear at the top of the schedule. The other rows correspond to a column in the schedule. The rows at the top of the list will be displayed on the left of the schedule.

For labels, there is no schedule title. The rows correspond to the rows of information in the label. The order of the rows in the list is used as the order of the rows on the drawing.

Grid Columns

Key: The identifier for the column describing what value it will display. The value in this column is fixed and cannot be changed by the user.

The Schedule Title key is a special key that exists for schedules. The Label of this key is the title of the schedule. The Width and Display values of this key are ignored. The width of the title is based upon the width of the columns in the schedule. The title is always displayed with the schedule.

Label: The name that will be displayed. For schedules, this is the column label. For labels, this is the row label.

You can define a second header for a column by separating the two headers with a | character. The first header will be merged across multiple columns where it is the same.

Width: The width in inches on the printed drawing. For schedules, each column has a separate width value that controls the value of the specific column. For labels, all of the rows share a common width.

Justification: The justification of the text values in the column. The justification of the title for the schedule and of the column headers are set using the Schedule title justification options and the Schedule column label justification option in the Options command.

Left: The text is left-justified.
Center: The text is center-justified.

Display: Whether or not the column is shown on the schedule or the row is shown on the label. If this is not checked, the value will not be displayed.
